Eat to Sleep

Post by Oceantide »

We need to sleep
Instead we eat
We splurge and gorge
And grow and flow
Exceeding our clothes
Growing our girths
Stuffing our bellies
Numbing our hurts

This is so relatable, Oceantide. I move from thing to thing for that last line… I remember this feeling. And now, as then, when I need to sleep I do things to numb what I can so I’m not alone with it, if that makes sense. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you, Paper, it helps to know you can relate, though it feels sad as well...
