Today I woke up abruptly and looked at my phone,
I’ve been going to sleep later and later these days.
Reading books that take my mind to another time and place.
Filled with fields, horses, flowers and dead cities.
A lot of the time I feel like sleep makes me more tired, Its like I exert so much energy in the middle of the night that its impossible for my body to get the rest it so desperately needs. Most morning are very difficult for me to get out of bed ,today though It felt like someone screamed in my ear to woke me up. I wish I had an idea of what I was dreaming.
I believe that you can feel somethings that aren’t there,
People say that ringing in your ears is someone talking about you. That itchy ears are the sign that someone is thinking of you, that an itchy nose is someone wanting to kiss you and That people in dreams can actually be talking to you through their subconscious…
I think there is actually a book about it, if 2 people focus on each other enough it’s thought that they can project their souls, meet and interact. Maybe my soul is searching.
Sometimes it’s too easy to think about other people more than you think about yourself .
