    This is my most recent nightmare.

    If there's some kind of psychologist that would like to analyze it, feel free. (My mom's dead. Barbara is my step-mom. Kyan is my two-year old brother.) I was just walking home from school. When I arrived home, Barbara and my dad had returned early from Las Vegas. I asked what...

    I dreamt of taking my own life,

    everything was so vivid. I saw myself poisoning myself and then cutting my veins. I felt dizzy and knew I am dying. I regretted my decision and knowing that death was inevitable for me, I prepared myself to die. I'm awake now and realised that I'm still alive but it's so scary...

    Kept having them last night.

    I'd wake up, falk back asleep, the nightmare would just pick up where it left off. Irritating to say the least.

    In my friend's nightmare she was at a party

    with friends. She didn't know them in real life but she hung out with them all night in the nightmare. Her pregnant friend said she wanted to leave. In the nightmare it was 5am-ish and they were driving through a rural area. No stars or moon out. The pregnant friend pointed...

    I've had recurring nightmares

    since I was a very young child about being stabbed to death beneath the deck of an old wooden ship. Also about being chased by wolves. Most of the time the stabbing happens on the boat in more or less the same way, with a guy holding me in place and a second stabbing in my...

    I moved 14 hours from home pretty recently.

    ever since I have had nightmares almost every night. I usually can't remember them, but wake up panicked and sweaty with my heart pounding. if I don't have a nightmare is usually because I woke up every 30 minutes to avoid it. anyone else experience this after moving?

    I have a reoccurring nightmare of being tied to

    a table in some kind of a run down barn and tortured to death by three men, when I first started having the dream, I didnt know any of them. Two of the faces are recognizable now- so until the third appears I wont worry myself with it. One odd thing is when I woke up after...

    My most recent involves my favorite musician,

    Marilyn Manson. This may seem a bit "Edgy" or "Coincidence", or even a "Hoax" but it's true. When I turned 15, I was experiencing a taste of the 90's rock/metal, one that caught my interest was Marilyn Manson. Through out, I adored him, until I started to hear a phrase when I...

    I just woke up from a nightmare.

    Many people I know and I were rounded up and thrown into a prison, where several people I know were killed by guards with shotguns for talking back. At some point people in the large area I was in began arguing with another. That gradually devolved into shouting, then fighting...

    I just had one that could be realistic.

    . It was regarding my 11 year old sister who was trick or treating in the neighborhood but I couldn't find her. I came up to a parked truck in the middle of the road and my sister was in there in the passenger seat, kind of lifelessly like she was passed out It was kind of clear...

    I never had a very nice sleep like I did last

    night since I moved to this country. Normally, I would dream about my hometown or my family. Sometime, I woke up in the middle of the night because I was so scared of what happened in my dream. Lately, I found this guy on Instagram. He's quite famous because he's good looking...

    Last few nights I've had nightmares.

    First time I've had them since I was very young. I find them scary but fascinating. They felt so real and I felt so much emotion in them!

    I set in her chair, looking in a haunted

    mirror, I looked like her, i felt her pain. Lashes on her back, death crawling on her skin. The voices said go back in time. How did she die? And I remembered she had a baby that was not meant to be born. He killed her, the one she loved. They opened up her womb and took the...

    Last night I had one of the worst nightmares

    I've had in a while, though it seems somewhat silly to me when I think about it now: I found myself alone in my old room. I was sitting on my bed, but things felt slightly off. Still, the atmosphere felt rather relaxed, so I let my guard down and got up. I paced around my room...

    I'm in a corridor. A man directs me to a room. I'm uncomfortable but I follow. When he opens the door, I see them there. They're sitting in their desks staring back at me. And they're hideous. I see a boy in a varsity jacket with with what seems like unnaturally green craggy skin...
