the stuff of my recent dreams


Author Comments

Yesterday's prompt was "dreamy." I had to take last night off as I was violently ill, with prolonged chest pains and difficulty breathing, which subsided after a few hours.

With the exception of the night before last, I have been having unsettling or otherwise peemy dreams, and so I put the emotions I felt from them into a piece of music. It was a quick affair, and perhaps a means of processing what I had to contend with, and leaving it all behind after.

For me, this is a wistful piece, not necessarily indicating one's terror, but perhaps the half-depression, half-relief of having woken from a bad dream, with the knowledge one may have to suffer through it again. I have recurrent nightmares as well.

The last I had was interestingly a zombie apocalypse, and my father had been turned into a mindless beast that was trying unsuccessfully not to eat me, until I bit off a piece of his nose (no blood was involved), pried open his mouth, spat it in, and said, "You idiot -- I love you!" He grumbled back the same, surprised, and I locked him in a closet to set out for a cure.

I'm not sure what it means, but this song would suffice for how I felt.

Last night I dreamed a dream that was a nightmare. Or perhaps a glimpse into a future that could have been. My home was stolen in the dead of winter, and I wasn’t allowed to even take my shoes. I’m not sure why it was so, but the feeling of dread was intense. I awoke in a cold sweat, less of a man than when I had laid down.

Sometimes life is just so hard, so disparate. But we hold onto hope in spite of the odds.

Great song.

This song seems to capture bad dreams as a whole. Unsettling, scary, sad. It's like you took what you experienced in them and put them in this.
