Every night, right as I fall asleep, I dream. My dreams are so vivid they often leave me mentally and emotionally exhausted. I've always experienced lucid dreaming for as long as I can remember and I still believe that we enter a separate realm through our dreams. I dream about the past, the future, running, trying to fly, flying, flying and falling, falling off cliffs, falling off bridges, falling for somebody, I dream about the weather, people I know but haven't met, people I know and trust but for some reason don't appear as themselves within my dream, people I don't know at all, familiar places that feel familiar but appear different, I dream about my o.c.d., repetition, religion, violence, being violent - with enemies that emerge in my dream, being fearless, being helpless, moving in slow motion, I dream about searching for something or someone, about foreign lands, food, pain, pleasure, language, art, animals, creatures, mythical creatures, magic, death, love, nature. Colors are so deeply saturated, every emotion feels intense and every sensation throughout my body is amplified. When I wake up, it feels as though I haven't rested at all, not one bit - I catch my breath.
