Comments - Insomnia (Song)

Maher, insomnia is a complete b I t ch lol I suffer and have suffered for as long as I can remember, it never seems to get easier either unfortunately.

1/ The first line here reminded me of the film frozen when Anna says "the skies awake so I'm awake" lol don't worry I only watched it with my nieces and you probably have no clue what I am talking about haha. Why does it seem that our skin begins to crawl when we cannot sleep? Hmm :/ definitely a million years seem to pas when we cannot sleep thus making the 'long' nights merge into one.

2/ I feel this is associated with living in Aus and it being so hot now that you couldn't breathe but now the heats subsiding (even if a little) you can breathe again. Traveled should have two l's I think.

3/ When awake all night you could do whatever you liked and why wouldn't you especially if sleep isn't going to come to us soon. The world apparition I had to look up as I wasn't sire of it's meaning and I found "a ghost or ghostlike image of a person" or "a remarkable or unexpected appearance of someone or something" so my guess is the ghost like image but then again, I'm usually crap at guesses haha.

4/ I feel this is relevant to being insomniac because we wish away our lives (or I have done) when sleeps prevails us.
A great write, I think has a deeper meaning though I cannot pin point it.

Take care, Em

Lol I miss this. Travelled should have a double L, but Americans seem not to like double letters unlike the Brits and Aussies lol. It marked it red so I just used one L to shut it up.

Very interesting interpretation though and I love to see how things can be interpreted totally different by others as opposed to what was intended. It's half the fun of writing because people can show you a perspective of something that you would never have thought of - it's awesome. So thanks Em. This is why I like your breakdowns of what I write :)

Maher, I liked this a lot. Insomnia is awful and it seems in this write that insomnia is keeping you from the woman in your dreams. She appears briefly but not nearly long enough. Well done-

Thanks Brenda, interesting way of looking at it :)
