Sleepless Night

Sometimes you just don't want to shut your eyes and let the world fall away before you've had a chance to make sense of it all. When lover's words fall short without a listening ear. When the moon is full and staring through your window. Your body just won't let you fall into the cushions of your bed, sinking always deeper into that land of sleep, of dreams, of forgetting, of losing reality.

I can't even begin to explain how useless it all feels. The structured minutes allow me to forget that I exist for only so long. I'd love for you to come and sit by me sucking the juices of the minutes we share, to really taste their essence. Before you really spend time with me your hugs feel empty, as if we've never really touched. And suddenly I feel like I don't even know you if our hands don't even feel each other's warmth, or know the feeling of being together and being united.

Down hallways dark and dank I wandered searching for a better meaning looking for more fulfilled contact; all i found was a smokey room where lazy eyes lay, darting. The wet sound of leather echoed through the room as I sat down and waited. Here, I thought, I would catch something truly great. Here I would see that it was all worth it. But soon enough I learned the ways of those with lazy eyes, I became the owner of those very eyes and I knew I had to escape.

Are you saying you're an insomniac? That the world is devoid of meaning? That you're looking for something better?

It's in New Haven!

..Okay, I'm going to be serious now. (No: it's 3:11 AM, I don't know when that happened, and it's now impossible for me to be serious.) I got your email, have read a few things on your blog. Beware the lazy eye; I've heard it impairs your vision.

I have no idea what I'm talking about.
RIGHT, I was going to tell you that there is a little Lville ring of bloggers (or maybe there are many), mostly my friends from my year. But I think you know some of them...

For example, Deal:
or, Kate Benner:

And I have one too. Mostly it talks about nothing in a very abstract way. (

WELL, I just wanted to say hiiiiiiiii. And now I'm going to go to sleep, or read some Chaucer, or do something.
