Do you get any nightmares? Do you remember them? Generally, I don’t get any dreams and I experience perfect blankness during sleep. But rarely, I do get dreams/nightmares and yesterday night was one of them. What makes it unique is, I still remember some scenes from the dream, even now!
Yesterday being Sunday, I was very relaxed and went to bed quite satisfied with my activities during the day. I slept somewhat earlier than I usually do.
Suddenly I am transported into the dream world. This dream went like this –
I was standing along with a few others in the beach, in front of the waves and the vast ocean. This was not any beach I knew, because there were many steps to climb down to the beach. As we were watching, suddenly there is a Tsunami! Guess what, the Tsunami did not come from the ocean in our front. It came from behind us!!
I was the first to spot it. I casually turned my eyes towards right and then turned my head behind to see the rushing waters from behind the steps. Everyone is alerted and we start running in the front. Towards the ocean!!
Someone tells us that the bridge over the Anna Nagar river has broken and the water is gushing down from there. Where is Anna Nagar and where is the beach?? Also, there is no river in Anna Nagar and definitely no bridge over a river!! If the bridge over the river breaks, why should the water gush into the sea??
I wonder how my sub-conscious mind can think of these strange and illogical explanations, that too when water is gushing in full speed from behind us in the dream!!
Anyway, we spot a narrow bridge-like pathway in our left and we take it. Then we suddenly move out of the beach and run towards some spiral shaped buildings and spiral shaped pathway that goes downward. On the way, we alert the people living in those buildings.
I keep reminding myself that going downwards is not the best thing to do when there is so much water rushing behind me, but there is no other way. I keep going down and guess what, I run to the next city!!
Here the scene changed to some other (totally unrelated) nightmare that involved a school, principal and trains. I don’t remember what the story-line was, but this one was equally frightening. When I woke up today morning, I was visibly shocked!
If there is a way to record these nightmares, they might make for some good horror movies! Unfortunately, I don’t remember most of my dreams once I wake up.
How about you? What was the scariest dream you had recently? Do you remember your dreams?
