3TC Pl 119

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You
don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where
your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing!

Today’s prompt: hug, courage, paprika

******

I hug my pillow tightly

I try to be courageous

and have courage but I am so scared

I awoke from a nightmare

I stare

Open mouthed

Heart racing

Arms flailing

Anxiety rising

Then, all of a sudden

My dog comes to greet me

His soft fur feels warm and cosy

I nestle into his soft fur

My head resting on his neck

All thoughts of nightmares gone

For a fleeting moment

I have a responsibility to nitro

I need to see that he’s ok

This keeps me distracted

Until the feelings disapate

And once again

I feel ok

and can start my day

Feeling happy and content

Bright light of hope

Emotions run deep
I cant sleep
I try and try
Feel like crying
Tears dont come
Instead they pool
At the edges of my eyes
Threatening to engulf me
Sleep evades me every night lately
I want the comfort of rest
Peace
Peace and serenity
thats all I want
An end to this turmoil
That I am feeling
But an end is not in sight
and I dont think it will be
for a while
so meanwhile
i search
for rest and relaxation
and I hope
for the bright light of hope
to shine on me

Bad dreams

I woke with horrible dreams. Its awful. I cant go back to sleep. I decided to get up.

The dreams were of people hurting us. I wont go into it but needless to say they were very scary.

Now the kids are super scared. They are afraid someone is going to get in to our house and hurt us. I am trying to soothe them. It isn’t working.

I hate, hate bad dreams. I did sleep for about 3 hours though which is something I suppose. Its the most I’ve slept in about 2 weeks.

If anyones around could use a hug and some support.

Todays prompt: swing, anteater, lime

**

with a swing

her arms fling

punch the air

its not fair

doing time

what was her crime?

remembering

thats it!

remembering shit!

swing swing

she hits out

at the monsters

then all of a sudden

she wakes

fear written all over her face

oh, she exclaims

It was just a nightmare?

As she whispers to herself

Omg!

Poetry

fear grips me
and I spin
counting, 1, 2, 3
My mind spins wildly!
Churning stomach
Clammy, hot, sweaty
Tight chest
As I try my best
To shake this feeling
This feeling of utter dread
Climb out of bed
In the middle of the night
Pure terror, pure fright
Grips me with all of my might!
This is what nightmares look like
This is flashbacks
This is pure hell!
Oh how I wish
It would end
Not tonight, I say to myself
As I make some tea
And now that I am wide awake
Prepare for the day ahead

Shitty nights sleep!

Yeah, I haven’t had a great night. I woke at 4. I wanted to stay asleep so bad. But I couldn’t, so I got up. I went online. Read blogs. Read emails.

I even went to bed early last night, I shut down my computer at 11 PM. That’s early for me. And that was after sleeping for a few hours in the afternoon too. I managed to go to sleep pretty quickly last night. Not even my phone was going to keep me up.

Now if only I could stay asleep once I get there? Will be working on sleep stuff in therapy today. Eileen said she’d help me work on it. Am so looking forward to actually sitting down with her and trying to figure all this sleep stuff out. Hoping if I can my life will get easier and sleep problems will be less.

I woke

From a bad dream. And I am terrified. I cant go back to sleep. I am shaky, I am feeling anxious, I am just, terrified!

God help me!

Someone anyone, are you up and awake?

Could use a friendly word of support if you are!

Nightmares suck!
