Haha this is more funny than scary. It is funny how the voices tell him to practically commit frikin suicide.

I really liked the tone of this. Creepy ending and the fact that it's relate-able makes it that much more creepy.

The author's mastery of prose and rhythm is apparent in this piece. The way the author boldly outlines a sense of desperation and focus on the minute details such as the blood running from the character's hands and the emphasis on the exact time the character had felt unrested is a testament to the author's understanding of the major theme of desperation for relief that this piece illustrates. This piece is a worthy offering to The Gate.

This feels so realistic. You captured the struggles of one who has been suffering from extreme insomnia in a very believable manner. The way you described the voices and how they coincided with his death was brilliant. The one thing I would say is that you could go into depth a bit more to describe exactly how insomnia affected his day-to-day life. Overall,excellent piece.
