The sleep of the dead is enviable.
After all, there is no rest for the weary…
and my mind is buzzing from the adrenaline that’s keeping me upright
for the umpteenth time.
It’s an unending process, really.
Yes, the rest of the dead is enviable.
But perhaps they envy our still-burning life…

i rest. the mornings are languid, so are the nights. the windows shine, and the sunlight caresses my wounds. the sleep, it takes care of me. it cradles me, sings lullabies scented with bright cinnamon and lavender. i rest.

the blessed remain in their beds, nesting
however how do they attest to their resting,
must we be privilleged sheets and a pillow
when all we need is a needle and a willow,
though brown, I still commend my yellows
and any other shade on the palate of friends,
world peace, to become a tradition, we should all

Resting from the stress of loving is only a temporary relief. Sometimes it doesn’t even work, sometimes you’re there, lurking in my dreams. Not that I mind, loving you is the pain I could get high off of.

resting my mind like a child resting its body on a swing,
letting the wind blow and letting the pendulum lifting his body back and forth
i let my mind on a swing
let it drift far away from here

resting at the beach is the best. the warm sand the cool breeze and the sounds of the ocean crashing on the shore. I can always find peace at the ocean my favorite place to rest

I can’t wait for it to be vacation. I am going to try to incorporate some rest into my schedule. These next few days are going to be difficult for me to get through. There is so much work to finish before Sunday. I am so stressed! My brain feels like mush and I know part of it is because I haven’t gotten enough rest to function.

Resting is good for you. I need rest all the time. Resting helps me focus for the next day. Rest is essential to the body.

In a resting position I lay, trying to decide on what to write. Inevitably failing. My chair is weak, creaky, and generally uncomfortable. What story is there to tell when everything has been written. What life is there left to live?

sleep. relaxed. being at peace for a moment. forgetting about the troubles of the day and being entirely with yourself. time alone. mental health.

“You need to be resting.” He gave her a look that she could easily read. ‘Sit the fuck down.’
“But I don’t waannaaaa,” Hazel whined, flopping down on the couch.
“Babe, come on. You’re 8 months pregnant. And no more flopping. It’s bad for the baby.” He set a hand on her huge stomach.
“I’m just sick of being pregnant.”

hands crossed over heart
that way we protect what mummifies first
what’s hardest to see
the jellied orbs of sight,
the futile organ of life

One night i was resting and i was awaken by a very loud noise. Now most of the time when i am resting i do not get up for little noises but this was not the case. This was no little noise. It sounded as if a bowling ball was thrown from the top of my roof. I was very shaken up. These types of things didn’t happen. I was fear stricken. I slowly started to get up not sure what I was about to find out side my room.
