Why Do Nightmares Annoy Me?

​Today morning, while I was intensively engrossed in the state of sleep after having read a fantastic novel around 2:30 am. I didn’t need to struggle to sleep because my eyes were already drained. And then a nightmare ruined it. How Bad!

It was a dark cold night and I was getting late for one of my classes. I wonder now, why I was heading to a class around midnight. But dreams are dreams, anything can happen unknowingly. I don’t know why I came acrosss hinterlands (my sub-conscious reacted to it within my mind during sleep). But as I kept on going, I lost my way and suddenly reached an opposite place; a dark Savannah where there was nothing except the luxuriant forests. It was all black everywhere (night). All I could see is the dark woods and trees and there was no way to escape. It just does not seem to be much frightening but the nightmare I had, it was dreadful. As I tried to get out of the place, a chimerical creature struck me. It was horrendous. I can’t describe the ghastly deviltry of the situation which I suffered in the subconscious state of mind. I lost my conscious but not completely, and that was the worst part. That’s how the dreams torture us turning in nightmares. You feel a total failure when you are in a gruesome situation, and you are constantly putting efforts to come out of it, but you aren’t able to do so. As my mind was completely stuck by the horrific vision I had and my eyes were trying to get out of the sleep. And that’s how I battled through the things. Somehow I managed, my eyes opened and found myself lying peacefully on my bed. And then I realized it wasn’t midnight, it was a morning dream. It was 10:30 am. Oh yes, I’m a sluggard.
And this is the thing I face everyday. No not such fearful. But things like that, more or less. Most of you won’t even believe, I get dreams everyday. Every single day. Sometimes, I’m annoyed a lot as these are the first things that come across my mind when I wake up. The very first thought- What did I dream. Since childhood, this thing hasn’t left my way. Some of my friends say, I think a lot and that’s why I get them. God knows, if it is so. Some of my pals find it funny. And here I am just immersed in the dreams and terrible visions I see. I experience Déjà vu a lot. I know it’s normal to experience, all of us feel like that at times. But I? I get it like almost everyday for one or two instants. Oh god, have I lived the same life before? One of my friends told me that, those who dream a lot often experience Déjà vu. I don’t know the verity of this fact. I once picked the great book: “The Interpretation of Dreams” by Sigmund Freud, who was a well renowned psychoanalyst. I read that book a bit to quench my curiosity. Since I didn’t complete it, I could not know things and facts. I look forward to pick it up soon and devour it.

I would like to know the experiences of my fellow bloggers. Do you feel like that, any of you? Feel free to share.

  4. Hawww!!! Samepinchhhh!! 😬 Such a relatable post, Shreya. I felt like someone gave words to my own story. Even I get dreams everyday, and they are never nice ones, each morning I wake up with the memory of devils and wild frightening animals chasing me and kind of things. 😨 And I get so afraid and then I realise Sapna thaaa! Those things I am actually scared of, I have seen them happening to me in dreams. That is creeeeepy. 😬😬

    But, this is a nice post Shreya. I can relate to the Deja Vu thing also. Happens often. 😂
