After last week's bout of insomnia I finally managed to get to bed at a decent hour last night. I was in bed by 10:45pm and got nearly 9 hours of sleep! Unfortunately though, my restful sleep was also accompanied by some very vivid dreams. I dreamt last night that I was in requited love with someone. I've dreamt that I was in love before, but never that I was loved in return. In those dreams I never knew who the other person was, but in this one it was a familiar face. The dream was such a happy one, and the snap back to reality once I woke up was very upsetting. I wonder if subconsciously my body is afraid to dream and the reluctance to let my guard down affects my ability to sleep.
"To sleep, perchance to dream". Yeah right Hamlet.
