    One in particular; I'm alone in a dark room.

    I'm bound to the floor by chains hooked through the flesh of my fore arms and lower legs. Every movement feels like the bone is breaking. Once in a while a red hot drop of molten iron would fall on my body in random spots. After a while, a man comes in. His whole body in...

    Not recently but last week.

    I would have horrific nightmares. Or real life situations gone horribly wrong. I think my subconscious is trying to tell me something. That or it's ******* with me. Wait does that mean I'm ******* with myself? But why would I do that?

    where I fell asleep, whether it be my bed with my fiancé or on the couch and someone comes into my house and strangles me- and no matter how much I scream in my dream, he won't wake up to save me.

    Quite a while ago I had this strange nightmare.

    I was sitting at a grassfield near my house, but something was off. Everything looked kind of gray/blueish. I heard a noise behind me, turned around and see someone. This is where it gets strange. Once I notice him, I run towards him on hands and feet. But my hands seem to be...
