I would much rather stare at the colors dancing behind my eyelids than sleep.
Lose myself in silence and waking dreams than fall into a dream I can’t control.
There had to be something I could do about that.
Lucid dreaming, I thought
That was the trick
Know I was asleep
Then control it.
No longer would I feel that numbing sense of dread that came with a dream.
No matter how amazing
Or strange it might be
I was unable to move my own legs as I wandered this new world.
Invisible strings tugged me of their own accord
Willing me to go where they lead.
And the second I wanted to run
It is as though my muscles have turned to jelly
Like I was dragging my feet through cement
I could fix that.
Lucid dream and fly through the night in a flurry of adventures
Without ever having to leave the comfort of my own bed.
So I did what anyone would do in this day and age.
I went on the Internet.
Okay, I think, I’m ready to try.
So lay still
Relaxing every part of my body
From the very tips of my fingers and toes
Section by section until I could feel myself sinking into the mattress.
Then I’m awake
Not a clue as to when I actually fell asleep
Or even the smallest inkling of a dream.
Hope you enjoyed my failure to lucid dream. Every single time. Anyways, expect to see quite a few posts that somewhat resemble this one. Or at least the way it’s formatted. Like I said, I’m trying something new.
Until next time,
Signing off, Quill x
