Sleepless Nights

Home / Late night thoughts / Sleepless Nights

Strange enough when I woke up, I found me already awake. My eyes were open as if they had awoken by themselves, and having once done that, had taken to wandering around the wooden plank which happens to be the ceiling of my little corner and the frame of the bunk beds in my room. Just as I always recently awoke, I was unable to move, and my back was stiff and sore. I looked at the phone clock displaying it was still only 4 a.m. in the morning; this was turning to be yet another ill slept night for me.

This was unnerving me, lying still on my back, looking blankly above.

As peaceful as I looked on the outside, my lost gaze gave out the chaos and noise inside. I can’t keep track of my thoughts, they’re all running wild and free all over the place, going from work to my long lost hopes, to my anticipated unrealistic dreams and ending up with you. At 4:30 a.m. and after all I’ve been through this week, you were the only constant and ever present picture in my mind.

When I woke back from my trance, I was still lying on my back, looking at the same scenery, the rather darker wood plank above, the dim light brushing over my book collection, and a cup of the now cold last night tea..

‘Shut your eyes already!’ I start counting sheep, think of your smile, blush, and beam sheepishly, again I count… Close my eyes forcefully, deep breath, drift to sleep…

7:00 a.m. the music of “Aşkı Memnu” echoes in my head as my alarm sets off. I lift my heavy skull, eyes burning, snooze the damn thing, and doze off again.
