Page 6: Daysleeper

/ Tuesday, November 30, 2010 /
I'm the screen, the blinding light
I'm the screen, I work at night.

I see today with a newsprint fray
My night is colored headache grey
Don't wake me with so much.

I cried the other night
I can't even say why
Fluorescent flat caffeine lights
Its furious balancing

It’s kinda funny how you can turn into someone whom one of your favorite songs been described. And you’ve been listening to that song before you became that person, or before you even could understand precisely each words in it. Like Daysleeper from R.E.M. I fell in love with this song when I was 14 or 15. Saw the video for the first time on MTV Asia hit list. And still in love ‘til now.

I remember I was so happy found its lyrics on one of teen magz. I search every word’s meaning. Until I get the whole message. At that time, it was never crossed in my mind that I’m going to be a daysleeper. Of course I don’t cry at night. But I definitely got that headache grey when facing deadline. Hehe.

But it’s not always because of the deadline, tho. Sometimes I’m the one who refuse sleeping and do things I could actually do at day. Like writing THIS at 4am, when I should and definitely COULD use it to get some sleep. As long as I can remember, I rarely have insomnia. I easily fall to dream land. Poof! Just like that. But now, the thought that I’m a productive-at-night-person is growing stronger and stronger. It’s not a healthy choice. I mean, physically. Our body designed to take rest at night, right? Even you think you’d rest all day, still your liver released all poisons at night. That’s why we should get some sleep.

Ah, well. At least I realized it’s not a good thing to become a daysleeper when you can have a normal rest at night.. The true problem is to really avoid it.. Shoot.. :p
