Six-Word Searching for Sleep

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

By Amy Lauren

Last month, The New York Times released this
article exploring the ramifications on the mind and body caused by a lack of sleep. Lately, there just seems to be too much to accomplish when the sun is up that our designated sleeping hours are getting cut drastically short. Some six-word scribes believe that believe that letting out six expressive words on sleep can help counter the insomnia, the nightmares and whatever else we find getting in the way of a good night’s rest .

Counting sheep? Writing myself to sleep.

Sleep, please make me your mistress.
- Jnag76

My love sleeps alone. I type.

Sleep eludes me, let’s get breakfast.

Making husband sleep on metaphorical couch.

Sleeping trumps partying at my age.

Trying to sleep; sandman skipped me.

Sleep deprivation-once again my muse.

Thunderstorms help me to sleep better.
- PrincessLief

Too much life goes by asleep.

Sleep doesn’t hurt, but nightmares do.

- memo

Talks in sleep. Secrets of subconscious.

Getting old, fell asleep while dreaming.

Sleep walk. Life is a dream.

Sleeping with a stuffed animal again.

Insomnia negotiations. Bargaining with ticking clock.

Insomnia knocked on bedroom door tonight.

Dreams come true, so do nightmares.

My nightmares make me welcome insomnia.

- marymc

One privacy I have. My dreams.


I’ll see you in my dreams.

Reality is finally better than Dreams.

Too busy living, forgot to dream.

I propose new Six category: Dreams.
