    I remember a nightmare I had

    when I was 6-7. This clock (like the one from blues clues) threatened to turn my family and the whole world into animals so that I could never find them again if I didn't marry him. I roamed the land searching for them crying. The clock was repulsive. In the end, I tricked him...

    Quite Odd

    The dream itself was mild, actually quite pleasant, but the circumstances the dream fell under were.. Interesting. It was a nice day, in the dream, and I was out at a picnic with ( at the time ) four good friends. Sitting on a grassy hill, on a bright red-and-white blanket, a...

    I Had a Recurring Dream As a Kid

    It's not your typical kid's dream though.  My first memory of this dream was before I started kindergarten so I must have been less than 5 years old.  I dreamed it again when I was about 9 or 10 and then again at age 15.  I've not dreamed it since. In the first...

    Let Go

    [The dream was much shorter than it sounds; it's just that I remember it vividly and described every little detail I could] I don't really remember when exactly I had this dream. Sometime in middle school, 7th or 8th grade, I think. Now, I remember a lot of my dreams. This one...

    Weird

    This is a really weird one and I have no idea why it stuck with me. Normally I can't remember my dreams.  In fact, this is 1 of only 3 dreams I have ever remembered in my life.  I believe it was inspired by one of the first horror movies I ever watched.  It was one of those...

    A few years ago I had a strange dream that

    for some reason I still think of...and I am unsure why. I was in a cabin somewhere in the woods. I lived alone and every day I stepped out to leave meat for some wolves that navigated the woods. There was snow everywhere. One night, I was inside the cabin and a man broke in. He...

    Once when I was very little,

    under the age of 5 (I have a painfully eidetic memory), I had a dream that my family - my mom, dad and my two older sisters, were abandoning me. I watched with intense, innocent sadness as they slowly walked away from me, like I never existed, through a tunnel of light.
