Insomnia


In the deepest confines of my brain,
There lies a mysterious world,
A world not many know of,
But always ask me questions about,
I shrug off their questions and silently walk away,
I keep wide awake waiting for the murmur to end,
The noise increases and reaches a crescendo,
I twist and turn waiting for it to subside,
It seems to be never ending,
Engulfing me in its raves and rants,
Everything seems to be moving at a furious rate,
Pictures of my past zoom by,
My present lost in the confusion,
I lie in wait for sleep to embrace me,
Am I the eternal Insomniac?

Robbie: Breathe in deeply, breathe out deeply. Watch your breath and nothing but sleep will come. Otherwise read some boring magazine!

ROBBIE said...

padmasini:

Sen:

Ganesh:
I seriously thought you would ask me to comment on your blogsite. edhukku comment adikkamala erundhirukkalaam!

Swahilya:
Do you really want me to go through the torture of reading a boring book, I still probably would keep awake thinking about how horrible the book was:P

Robbie there is actuallya sloka in praise of 'Nithra Devi' a beautiful one indeed. You can tell that,
otherwise, listen to a nice pleasant music and laid down sleep will embrace you

Robbie...even i m in the same boat..

I wonder sometime whether it is because of the pressure at work...

I have almost become a nocturnal....this doesnt mean that I get sleep during day...please if u find a solution do let me know

Ganesh: Sloka for me please........wish it works

Kavya,
I have had this problem on and off. Its not like this everyday. It can be just because I am so wound up and cannot relax. The best possible solution for this is to relax. I would suggest that you find a way to relax, do not keep thinking about work after you get back home. It is important that you have something else in life other than work to keep you occupied at other times. Counseling can also be a good alternative. Counseling can seriously work, if you are not sleeping it might be due to depression as well. I would suggest that you go to counseling right away if possible.

ROBBIE said...

Yeah I agree! I spent half the night deciding which one to use and finally came up with this one:P. Thanks to you for the help (and thank god I didnt chose any of the templates you suggested :P).

ganesh, just said what i was expecting :).

"Robbie there is actuallya sloka in praise of 'Nithra Devi' a beautiful one indeed."

Either u can tell 1 to 100 or tell a sloka on nithra devi.Both the same, mindless repetition to bore the mind. hahahahaha :)

Ganesh said...

Robbieyai nenacha...enakku kavalaiya irukku.!! Nice poem though..!!

Times like this, I take some Benadryl and hit the bed.!!

Daedalus said...

ha, i was just going to suggest benadryl but he beat me to it. benadryl and a little wine make an excellent combo for a good sleep. make sure you have more than eight hours to slumber, though.
