Receding dreams

So, my midday nap got burst into flames at some crushing sound in my room and the next thing I recall is that I am being thrown out of the spell of the millennium. An outer presence disowned me of my maternal rights and exposed me to the rugged duplication. And the tricky part is that I don’t even remember what I was dreaming about. The dream left its dwindling traces on my conscience. Yet there is no database to cross-reference it. A floating motion picture simply got wiped out in one flutter of the eyelids and left me with an uneasy feeling that kept drowning in the puddle of uncertainty all day long. This is one of those unearthly moments when you know you’ve been blessed yet you don’t know what the blessing is all about. Eerie reality interfacing with the parallel universe. The feeling reigns in your veins like a baby coming out of his mother’s womb for the very first time and the baby will forget in that instant the way a sudden flash of light made him frown. The experience recedes from other experiences.

Generally, I remember most of my dreams which gives me inexpiable excuse to waste my thoughts on analysing them. I’m not a psychoanalyst. I have my own way of looking at things, especially when it comes to illusions. What if I wake up someday and realize that life has been one hell of a dream? A roller-coaster that moved its weight, mass, bones up and down and suddenly dissipated into the madness of an unbidden whirlwind. Yet the sound, the touch on my right hand, the palpitation of the breaths felt so close to sanity!  It’s so hard to bring back something that never really existed.

Yet I had to land on the insipid replica of the vacuum clothed in realism.

    Dreams are pretty crazy sometimes, sound like you’ve got the vivid gene. Would love to see more of you around the writers Block. Yours truly Gastradamus

  2. Alas! I have never remembered a dream other than the very surreal ones. Nowadays I don’t even remember them. But it ain’t so bad. There is so much left to conscious imagination.

  6. What if the life we think real is actually a dream? And only during what we consider a dream, are we in reality??
    What if the whole reasons behind illusions and reality are topsy-turvy?? What if one loses the grip over differentiating a thin line between dreams and real world??
    Difficult to answer! Wonderful to think about.. Just like your article!

  10. I literally had the weirdest dream last night, but I can’t help but feel like I’ve had the same dream before! So strange.

  11. I hardly remember my dreams. Well, rarely. Most of the time I’m unable to walk in the ones I do remember

    I remember my dreams about half the time. It can be so frustrating when you kind of remember the dream, but you really can’t put it in words or make any sense. Or if you can tell you were having a good dream, and then wake up and its gone. Thanks for sharing!

    One of the things I find fascinating about dreaming is that our thoughts are mirror images of our truth, our fantasies, our realities, and our fears. It’s estimated we dream 3-5 times during the night. I seldom remember mine. – Christine G.

    Dreams are so interesting sometimes and unexplained. That is the awesome thing about waking up and realizing it was just a dream and did that just happen?

    I have such a love-hate relationship with dreams! Sometimes I wake up with such fear too for no good reason, and then i realize it was just a nightmare, phew!

    I always remember my dreams for a few seconds after I wake up then I suddenly forget. It’s crazy to think we are living a dream. That was a good question.

    I sometimes cannot remember my own dreams either. Honestly I don’t give them much thought but I do often Google the meaning of the dreams when I remember them.

  26. I have the most realistic and vivid dreams in the world. I’ve asked others if they have them and I’ve yet (until now) met anyone else who has them.
