“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Midnight Blues

Hey.. Peeps.. :) So yesterday it was ticking 1:45 a.m. and I was still not sleepy. Gah! Its been four days I have not slept properly. Seems like inosmnia is having crush on me badly. I was lying putting my hands back-head; thinking about everything going on, everything I am doing, everything I wanna do. Staring at my room-mates, they were sleeping and snoring. Gawd, I wished I could sleep. 

I started satring at my phone every 10 minutes: no texts, no calls. Hell! Where all friends and bullets go whenever I need them the most? I started scrolling my phonebook, searching a single contact I can talk to. It was 2:15 a.m., too late to call. I played my playlist, George Strait's song The Breath You Take started playing. Oh.. I love this song. ♪♫

I was thinking about what to do? Blogging? Good idea but my internet was not working. Umm.. I can continue my novel writing.. yes! I ran to get my laptop and I get back to my bed, as then no new thoughts were coming. What can I do after writing 3 chapters? I am planning my story. Let it be. 

It was 2:53 a.m., shit! still whole night left to pass. I wish I had sleeping pills. So I started planning what I am going to wear tomorrow like dumbo bimbos, I never plan what I am wearing. I check my wardrobe and pick one dress. You'll find blue and gray collection. I love blue and I hate pink, for those who are shrugging their shoulder in wonder: Yes I hate pink. Okay, so this thing was also over. Now what to think about? 

The flashback started, all the good  time with my family and friends. I started sliding pictures on my phone. And every picture showed me recap of past episodes of my life. I hate it when I feel so insomniac and see people around me sleeping. So today I got few disprin tablets, I am gonna take 2 tablets if I won't feel sleepy today. Its been 4 days and I feel like going mad. 

Right now dad called me, and my room-mates played dirty songs on high volume and started saying: Shreya have your glass of vodka (just to make my mom-dad doubt me that I am in some club). Gawd, I wished I'd killed them.. Lol!! 

Daddy asked me where are you baby? I said I am in my room, and told him that my room-mates are teasing me. Now mom inquired me, where are you dear? I: Mom, am at my room. Mom: Okay I got it, enjoy!! I: Mom!! Am at my room really, you know I don't drink. Mom: I know, what.. I can't tease my daughter? I: Ofcourse you can, but stop teasing like this. Mom: Got a boyfriend? I: Yes!! Mom: Really? I: What.. I can't tease my mom? Mom & I: Laughed together. Omigod!! Somethings happen out of the blues. 

Oh.. its 12:35 a.m. People are planning to sleep, and I am not sleepy, I can relate myself with owls. Lol!! Office to room and room to office is my life these days but I manage to write, read, sing, dance, dream and what not. Currently playing: While My Guitar Gently Weeps by The Beatles.. awesome song.. \m/ Tryna sleep. Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)

  6. It's really frustrating when you've worked hard the whole day,yet you can't sleep at night. Try drinking a glass of milk before going to bed. :) It seems like you and your mom is really close, that's a good thing. :)
