Wrought Up

I’m anxious
Lying here, alone with my fuzzy thoughts,
I search through the babel to make sense of it all.
My heart beats faster the farther I fall,
Stifling me slowly in a sea of my faults.
I spiral downward with every regret,
All the memories and pain I  could never forget.
Intense with shame and hate all the same,
I close my eyes only to wake in my bed.
Stress welded into my bones
Alone with my thoughts,
Alone once again…
My words and rhymes refrain
I can’t decipher them at all
I’m hitting them, the walls
You’re evanescing and that’s something I can’t bare
This wasn’t a mundane dream it was a nightmare.

How to avoid Nightmares and Insomnia?




1. Stick to an everyday sleeping pattern:


Being overtired can prompt bad dreams so attempt and confine your late nights to the end of the week and treat yourself to an early night sometimes. In the event that you go for a consistent sleeping pattern and hit the bed each night at the same time, this also could extraordinarily lessen the event of bad dreams. You should also avoid high-energy drinks, soft drinks, alcohol, coffee or tea, in the evenings. These contain caffeine that will keep you awake long into the night.

2. Keep away your phone:


When you curl up in bed each night, do you take your smartphone with you? Most people do. It might seem like the perfect opportunity to check your email, see what your friends are up to on social media or check tomorrow’s weather forecast and the list goes on.

Don’t do it.

Studies show that blue light emitted from your mobile device can damage your retina.

Also, it disrupts the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates the body’s sleep cycle. Not only will this result in more sleepless nights and fatigue, but can also lead to a variety of health problems including heart disease, weight gain, depression, and anxiety.

Ultimate rule: Always listen to mom.

3. Try imagery rehearsal treatment:


Imagery rehearsal treatment is a type of cognitive therapy which has been found very effective in reducing nightmares in PTSD and insomnia patients.

  • For example, if you’re dreaming you’re being chased, you could imagine the monster that’s chasing you, when it catches you, saying “tag, you’re it” and it’s really a game of tag.
  • If you’re dreaming that you’re falling, you could imagine that a parachute opens up and saves you.
  • If a couple of ghosts are frightening you, try being bold and try to frighten them instead.
  • If Zombies are rushing to eat you, use your gaming skills and keep on shooting them until you slaughter hell out of ’em. Or, run your car over a zombie. You can basically use every privilege in your dreams. Trust me. Just learn every day, take control, master these above techniques, and you’re ready to roll. Booyah!

  1. Yayyyyy! My wishes are fulfilled so promptly. I wished for a poem, and here it is! Such a lucky day. But, this is more on the darker, scarier side. Are you okay, Abhishek? It really feels distressing, I’m starting to feel anxious too. 😬 One’s worst fears might not be true in real life, but they are always realised in their dreams, again and again, and it’s just unbearable. Take care, okay? And very effective suggestions you’ve mentioned there. Will try to follow the mobile phone one, hehe. It’s the toughest.

      1. Haha, I can understand. No matter how much we study, it still feels like bohot kam hai ye toh. 😛 OMG! That’s less than 6 hours of sleep. How was the exam then? I hope it was good. Haha, exams khatam hone par hi ayega peace. When are they ending, so that I can expect more poems, hehe. I’m so selfish. I just want poems. 😹 Oh wowww, Harry Potter has helped me in the worst of times. It’s like a stress-buster weapon, haha. Btw, kal bhi exam hai kya? 🤔

      3. Oh, matlab tum bhi book-worm nahi ho? Last din par hi hoti hai sab padhayi. Uske pehle seriousness nahi aati na. 😆

        Yayyy, you need lots of aaram. Go to sleep, you need many many hours of it. 😹 Hehe, horrors sab ek ek karke aate hain. Jeene nahi dete ek second bhi. 😬

        Wow, GATE ke liye prepare kar rahe ho tum? Very impressive. 🙆 Bohot tough hota hai wo exam. Don’t worry, huh. Sab ho jayega. You just stay positive and keep working. All my best wishes to you. ☺❤

        Goodnight! Take care. Have a sound sleep.

      4. I’m frustrated at times with this type of lifestyle, but to be honest I love it. I like challenging work! Even though I got placed in a company, I won’t rest. Won’t waste my time in long gaming sessions or stupid social n/w chit chat. I’ll keep preparing myself everyday for a better tomorrow, that’s my matra! Keep the evolution run going, never stop learning !! I rarely use fb and insta these days.. Just this blog is where I spend some of my leisure time, and it gives me happiness to write, read and talk with some of the amazing bloggers here, like you. I’m proud and lucky to be the part of this platform.
        Thank you..
        You too, Chandni!
        Have a good night and keep the postive vibes coming!!!

      5. Oh my God! You know what, you inspire me very very veryyy much. Reading this comment of yours reminded me of someone, haha. 🌼 I really appreciate people who are so dedicated to their goals and who love their dreams just too much to waste time on trivial things. Social network is a vicious circle, once you’re in, you can’t find a way out. 😹

        Thankyouuu, I’m going to follow in your footsteps now. Thankyou for being the beacon of inspiration to me. And that’s true, I’ll never be able to thank WordPress for how many beauuutiful friends it has bestowed me with. ☺ I’m lucky to have known you.

        Haan, bas abi you should go. I’ll be waiting to read another poem. Don’t come back without one, haha. 😛
