Sometimes when I can’t sleep, I list things out. 

I lay there in the dark, huddled under my covers as the minutes tick past, thinking of all the things I have loved, my dreams about the future, my redeeming qualities. Sometimes I feel better after listing the things I like about myself. Sometimes I sigh as I list the qualities I want in my future partner. Sometimes I start to despair as I list out my favourite characters, a sense of sadness welling up knowing I’ll never meet them.

These lists usually vanish into nothingness when I wake up the next morning, stumbling around in sunlight. But at night, when everything is silent and it’s 3:30am, the lists help drown out the thoughts in my head, and my mind drifts, little by little, off to dreamland.
