insomnia is a kind of torture.
because while the world is fast asleep, 
you're up all alone, your mind buzzing
with every random thought in the universe.
and sometimes the thoughts will reach a 
standstill, and your mind goes blank.
you become more aware of the
silence and it is during this moment
that you realize how 
alone you really are.


  1. Boy, don't I know it...Plus you get interesting ideas for a new story and they're gone like a flash...
    Thanks for your comments! I'm glad you liked my drawings!

  2. Ooo! I remember that song! We were both 16 and it felt so riiiight. Sleepin all day stayin up all niiiight! :D

  3. If I could find you now things would be bettttttter!!! We could leave this town and run foreeeevvverr!
    Ocean Avenue, Yellowcard. Yup.

  4. Camp the summer after 6th or 7th grade. That is what that song reminds me of.

  5. I can empathize, unfortunately.... :P I used to be able to get to sleep like *THAT*, but lately I've been up til ridiculous hours in bed, my mind's really lame. lol

  6. I heard this song on the radio today, may my day which was plagued with a lot of work. Thanks for the even more musical goodness

  7. I love how music brings you to certain places in your life.

  8. I'm gonna start leaving you a bunch of comments.
    I've wanted to before, but I always felt kinda weird, since we talk through email so much. :p

    I like that song. And I've felt like that before. When I'm up at night and everyone's sleeping. Sometimes it's nice, to feel completely alone, and other times it's sort of sad.

    No, comments from you are the most important things!!!

    Aloneness is sometimes nice, but sometimes it hurts deep down in your stomach.

  10. Being alone like that can be allot of things. But it usually helps if you're doing something. But lately I've just been remembering amazing people that I miss for hours. I have a whole other life that no one knows about and don't respect me for. I listen to music and write stuff and prayers and wish I was with the people I love instead of seeing old friends of my parents who are great but aren't the same. Oh, and I can't sleep during the day, we have to do stuff. But as long as it's GOD honoring, it's not a waste of time or sleep. Jesus loves you! =)

I love hearing things that aren't my own pathetic echoes.
