“Sleep is not on good terms with broken hearts. It will have nothing to do with them.”
― Christopher Pike
Sleep honored me with its presence last night.
two nights in a row
I slept the sleep of the dead.
Not long enough to be a trend
but definitely no longer
counting on one hand
the nights more than four hours asleep
in the last 14 months.
Today I woke up to a lucid dream
but it wasn’t a nightmare.
I would share it here,
but it was so intense that it may
be offensive to some…
“Sometimes I wish I had not woken up from a beautiful dream, and continued dreaming within sleep upon sleep until I become a dream itself. Because sometimes waking up is more frightening than a nightmare.”
― Danny Castillones Sillada
At least the dream didn’t come at 3am… my Love let me sleep for awhile.
“Our rest is formed by our waking life and our waking life is formed by our sorrows.”
― Alice Hoffman, The Dovekeepers
Let’s hope for the start of a trend…
