*cracks knuckles* This is going to be quite the feat...

I have strange dreams. They happen in places I know well (like my old high school), only it isn't the place at all. Ever. I've had one where my school was a mall, but I completely accepted it as having been the school I went to for years. Ah, dream logic.

In these convoluted settings (because every dream I have more or less mutilates familiar surroundings and then claims "this is how it's always been!"), I've only remembered three kinds of dream for the past year. I'm sure I get one of them every night, actually.

There's the dreams where something is trying to make it very clear that I am owned. The first of these, from December before last, actually ended with the words "She's ours now," and the dreams have moved from there (where I was caught) to a more hunt/chase sort of thing. Being pursued by the one who thinks he owns me. These dreams have spawned very disturbing, half-erotic, psychotic stories.

Then I get the comforting dreams, which seem always to star Mike. They can just be silly things, or they can escalate to past pornographic, but there's always this basic feeling of absolute safety.

The only other dreams are the ones I wake up whimpering and crying from. These have been tooooo common for the past two weeks. Dreams of past people. And believe me, I never want to dream these; never even wanted to see the people again in my life. It's almost always Harrison, the one who got away (with about half of my torn-open heart leaving with him), and regardless of what happens, it always ends up disturbing me to the point where I wake up half hysterical.

My mind is not my friend, considering in these three trends of dreams, only one's actually good. Um, oops?

Being pursued, grief, loss. Usually set in the town I grew up in. On a near-nightly basis.

Someone told me to get dream-therapy hah.

I don't dream about anything most often, but ny dreams are always bizarre. A lot of the time, I don't quite remember all the dream, just bits and pieces of it, but the feeling I had in the dream stays with me even if the memories are convoluted. Within the past few weeks, I had a dream that disturbed me for some reason. All I can remember is that it was about acting and I was very upset in it. How weird.

My dreams are uniformly bizarre. Like falling off a bridge on a bus with the help of a tornado, only to crash in the water and drown to death -- staying dead in my dream for hours on end. Or thinking Jarre's ex-boyfriend has come to the house to take some things from the garage, only to find upon waking that he wasn't there. Or looking into a pool of water and seeing a cat stare back at me...

My dreams make my poems almost sane.

Mike

You mean the dream where I drank pink milk and turned into a deer with a human haircut?

Or how about my first nightmare ever (I was three), where a bunch of skeletons in linebacker uniform ran around a huge stone phallus mountain. When they got too close I screamed myself awake.

Or screaming myself awake (also young) after going up to play at a piano recital (years before I took piano lessons) and not having a cup of water.

Or finding my great-grandmother in the top rack of a dishwasher.

I am screwed up.

Baby, that's nothing.

Manda, my supposed best friend, has killed me twice in her dreams.

First time, she didn't do it. She was trying to save me first as I got kidnapped and then as I was burned at the stake. (Though I still accuse her of burning me at the stake in her dreams, since I'm jus' that kinda gal.)

Second time, she did do it. Chopped me up into tiny pieces and threw me into the dryer with her parents, who were also chopped up into tiny pieces.

Maybe it's 'cause she's a redhead?

Okay, that's pretty freaky. The only time I ever killed anyone was that dream once where I was a wolf and I slaughtered everyone around a campfire.

Y'know, when I *do* have pornographic dreams, it's almost a relief, because FINALLY something normal (well, sorta...)

P.S. I love you. You, you, you. (sorry)

I've had a few reoccuring dreams..

1 - I'm being chased by a man through a neighborhood or through a building.. and eventually he catches me and rapes me

2 - I can make myself elevate and fly and I laugh at people and kick them in the back of the head.. or else I'm trying to escape..

3 - I'm on a beach in another time period (1920's? 1930's?) and I'm with my significant other.. my husband? I just know that I love him.. and there's a huge wave that comes and kills him and catches me in it.. and I don't know if I die or not.. I just get tumbled around..

A reoccuring theme is me getting possessed or something.. my dreams are typically bizarre (except for the reoccuring ones.. those are not bizarre at all but more like watching a movie or deja vu)..

One time I was the Anti-Christ.. but I fell in love with God.. and he told me that we could run away together.. so we tried.. but the Devil called me back

I like my dreams. They are a mirror.

I try an uplifting book or movie sometimes helps before bed to dream soundly, also a glass of milk and a really good massage...

Dreams are just subconscious ideas for good stories.

Massage: unlikely, sans the possiblity of posing as a pretext for other activities.

My sweet dreams are non-existent. This may sound very hard to believe but every dream that I have is a nightmare of some degree. The typical ones that reoccur are me being raped, chased and killed, attacked in some form ie:beaten to death etc. I've got a delightful reoccuring one of a child, I don't know who it is, but she is asleep in her bed until her father comes in with an axe, rapes her and essentially cuts her up. I'm next to the bed, screaming at him to stop or for her to leave and she doesn't (of course) and yeah, the rest is history. That one comes whenever I sleep for more than an hour at a time. It's rare but it knocks you for six.

Imagination=nostalgia for the past, the absent; it is the liquid solution in which art develops the snapshots of reality.

Thanks Anvrill, it is a new sig, I just put it up the other day. Whistle down the Wind was my solo for a concert I was in last spring. I took one look at the lyrics and I knew it was the one I wanted to do! Steinman's lyrics are awesome! Thanks for noticing lol.

I did a big song and dance thing with my best friend, Manda (the one who keeps killing me off in her dreams) of When Children  Rule the World and No Matter What, in that order. Even though it was for musical theatre class, absolutely no one there but Manda and I knew what Whistle Down the Wind was! That just made me sad. *pout*

LOL, a guy I was in choir with and I did No Matter What as a duet (we actually decided to do that a week before the concert!). I have to say that I didn't know about Whistle down the Wind until this March when I picked my solo but I would LOVE to see it on stage! Have you ever seen it, or is it not in theaters anymore? I know it's not Lloyd Webber's most popular musical.

Essorant - lol @ the massage idea.

Well, unless I massage my own feet, there isn't much possibility at the moment of having anyone give me one...

As to the book idea and milk...done both. I've tried everything really...

What I do now - is simply tell myself as I'm dropping off to sleep what I'm NOT going to dream of. And I don't - I just dream other weird things instead.

Maybe getting older, much older, will settle them down..

*deep sigh* Un-for-tu-nate-ly... Whistle Down the Wind has ended it's London run, and that's more or less the only place it played. I mean, it had a big opening in Washington D.C., but the reception was so poor that they re-worked the entire thing before bringing it back to England. And me living in Canada.... Never saw a thing. I do have a friend who was at the opening night in D.C., and I want to kill her. Grr. But yeah... At least two CDs have come of it. Maybe in a few years, it'll hit Broadway. I really do think it's one of the strongest stories to be chosen for a Lloyd Webber musical in years, and using Steinman for lyrics can just never go wrong.
