Soft Nightmare

Is there such a thing as a soft nightmare? I guess it's what you would call an awfully scary dream that didn't make you shriek or cry, and didn't make your heart jump off your chest.

The effect of the dream strikes when you wake up, and remember what you saw.

Then, you tell yourself, "God, it couldn't happen."

They're both asleep in one room. Peaceful. I've already seen her dead earlier! Not again :( I tried to ignore that dream but it comes to mind ever so frequently.

And now the universe sends me this new dream.

Maybe her dying in my dream only means she's starting a new life. In truth, she is. And I pray that she gets what she came there for.

Another soft nightmare

Soft nightmares are more difficult to deal with than heart-stopping nightmares that makes you sick in your mind for a while. The key explanation is hard nightmares last for only a moment. You scream, you wake up, you are scared, but it's over soon.

Soft nightmares last longer. It will not make you scream. It hardly has a jolting effect. But it will haunt you all throughout the following days. The threat is in your mind.

Soft nightmares crawl like little worms of evil in your brain, give you the creeps, and make you feel that something sinister will take place quite soon and there's nothing you can do about it.

You see her lay herself on the street and wait for the blood to flow. Then days later, you hear her saying "three months." You want to tell her to take care, but you don't want her to freak out. :(

thanks lynda. i got interested in dreams when i began to realize that i could give my dreams some meanings that other people find too odd. and also, i dreamt that my mother was dead... a year before she passed away. it's hard for me to discard any dream as meaningless since then.
