100 Word Challenge: Resurrect

He's one of them, a Sleeper. You can see it in his eyes, with that phosphorescent shine you only get from instant caffeine withdrawal and a whole bottle of Clear Eyes, coating them with a glossy glow. Big glassy red balls. The freaker, he probably gets up at 3am, resurrecting from the dead, pops some pills to keep awake but I bet he looses it, standing in the shower, falling back into dream. I bet he's got hops in his blood, trying to kill the bacteria that's been eating up all the sweetness in life. Sleepers, Dreamers, they're always awake.

I wish I could get some sleep. I know how the guy in the story feels as far as wanting to fall asleep in the show goes.

I got the sleeping part down, it's those little people who wake me up so damn early.

Sleep has been far too elusive to me lately. I hope she returns soon cause I miss her.

"to sleep, perchance to dream...."
alas, it seems so elusive.

Nice piece, by the way.
