That dream

I am a dreamer, not only a day dreamer but I dream almost every other day in my sleep, sometimes it makes sense but the other times it is almost a chain of events which are not bound to happen or even more the chances of happening any of it or all of it together is negligible.

So what I saw recently?

I was in a bus journey with a couple of my friends; we are stacking our luggage and getting ready for the trip. We were all excited and yet I seemed lost, as always. I don’t know what, but something bothered me and kept me from being the chirpy me.

But just in a blink of an eye I was at a house, I know not where. I tried to figure out the house but I can remember nothing of it or no resemblance strikes me. I was standing at the end of it, in the last room when suddenly I realise the whole house is swathed in fire and I am screaming mad at the flames. But that is all I am doing, I am just standing there and screaming and trying in the least to save myself. Just when I realise that I am doing nothing I try to run through a slight space from the back door. (Sure the replication of our movies where most of the times that help)

And here, well just as I pass through the door, I am in the bus journey again with a different set of friends’ altogether. Now how did that happen? I sure did not see that coming.

But then one of my friend is saying that he will first drop me home and then leave, a lot has happened and I should take care of myself. Now why that? Why this dream? And why fire? Why should someone drop me? And how can I survive the damn fire? And how can all this be interlinked? I mean just how and why?

PS: I woke up with this dream in my mind and continued thinking about it all day long. I can not refer to any of it as a resemblance to my life, apart from my friends. Well if anything I’d like to know where exactly my trip was headed to? (If nothing I would have liked roaming about some hill stations or a beach.

  1. Sometimes I have dreams that make absolutely no sense at all! It contains major references to movies and/or series that I had watched recently and slight similarities to my life. And it is so surreal! But it really doesn’t make much sense! Looks like I’m not the only one who has these kinds of dreams!

    1. Believe me you are not the only one,
      Cause sometimes my dreams actually come out of nowhere, like not even from the movies that I watch, but may be my subconscious mind thinks of it, or may be not.
      I have absolutely no idea.

  2. Really enjoyed this post. Dreams never make sense though they are enjoyable. I think someone said that dreams are your minds attempt to pick up archetypes from your day-to-day life. Anyway, you should keep a dream journal and keep blogging! 🙂

  3. I always have crazy dreams, then I forget about them by the end of the day, until I have Deja Vu and then the dream comes into play by then cause I have seen it before and then it happens in real life….

  4. Sometimes dreams have some hidden meanings through which they prepare us for future, sometimes they show our present mental state, and sometimes they show some past event and all are loaded with loads of exaggeration. By the way dreams are good for health and reduce chances of depression.☺

Your perception holds importance for me.
