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!
