A Better Night Without Sleep Read Count : 1

Sleepless nights were something I thought to be bad.

At least for me they were.

I'd lay in bed in the dark, feeling empty and close my eyes. 

For hours I'd lay there trying to sleep,

 but my mind would keep me awake with horrible thoughts. Sometimes I could even make myself cry because of it.

It was like having a nightmare while I was awake. 

The darkness, the cold, the quiet, so different from this sleepless night.

I feel very relaxed even if I can't seem to find sleep.

There's warm lighting coming from my lamp;  

There's no complete silence, 

I have the strangely comforting sound of your breathing,

 and sometimes your cute snoring. 

I don't feel cold;

 Instead I feel a nice warmth in my chest

 that can only be caused by you lingering in my thoughts.

Being filled with too much energy to even begin to try to dose off, 

I just entertain myself with videos or just scrolling through apps on my phone. 

While I do this, I come across little things that remind me of you; 

Every time I laugh outloud at something I find funny, 

I get hit with the realization that I'm feeling actual happiness

 and that it's something that I feel a lot now.

I am happy.

Because of you.
