13. Mr. Sandman.

I had a dream last night. I wish I wrote it down as soon as I woke up because I think it was important, I think it was trying to tell me something. As I try to remember it, I'm only coming up with vague bits and pieces and I also think I'm filling in the blanks that makes sense to me in my conscious state; but dreams take on their own logic so I could be creating a dream that I didn't even have. I'm going to try and have the same dream tonight. Hopefully I'll be able to do it, I'm not sure if it's possible, I've never tried it, although I wonder if it's the same as having control over your dream as you dream it; a lucid dream I believe it 's called. I have those all the time and I tend to change things if it's getting too intense or too scary, although I wish I didn't do that because sometimes I would like to see where the dream is going.

In my dream I was trapped in a place that had lots of hallways and I was running from something obviously, because why else would I be running. The one thing that stands out to me, that I know for sure was part of my dream, were the hallways: they were covered with notes. I couldn't read any of them because as soon as I got close enough to read the notes, something would distract me and I would have to keep running. I don't know where I was but I know I had to get out. I think there were also doorways and when I went through a door some rooms were full of notes, there were papers as high as the ceiling so when I opened the door, notes would just spill out. When I tried reading these notes, I couldn't understand them. Either they were words that didn't make sense when you read them together or they were written in a different language that used English letters. I didn't have enough time to figure out which one it was because as soon as I was getting anywhere with the notes, I would have to start running again. I remember being very annoyed and also very exhausted in my dream. Maybe that's why I was so tired today. On second thought maybe I don't want to have this dream again...

"why else would I be running" ~ could it be possible that you were running towards something?

I was never able to recapture an old dream, on another night just as the original, but I hope your attempt at it goes better than mine ;)

i think im going to have to read the back story behind this!!

hope your dreams ease up though! i dont know if you're a caffine junkie but sugar and caffine before bed is supposed to cause crazy dreams, maybe you could lay off those after like 5pm?
