DREAMING a NIGHTMARE?It has been a long while since I had last dreamt about anything yet I had two dreams within these 2 days.
The first is a short one of which my I dreamt of my Grandma (Yeah!) and she handed me a stack of SGD 50. It felt so real as she always do that when she was still well during my lower secondary school days whenever I'm out of money. [I was damm spoilt I know]
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -The second happened on 25th March 2008 of which I dreamt of Zat, Jae, Jess and I were hanging out and suddenly Zat had to go back home to collect some keys. I volunteered to accompany him and we both bid goodbye to Jae and Jess and I told Jae that I will sms him later of where to meet up.
The next scene, Wendy and I were lying down on the floor with our heads facing one another while our feet were pointing in the opposite direction. We chatted about how our current relationship is going and what may have been should we have chose to stay together. I too asked her what were the reasons she left me though I sacrificed so much for her and loved her so deeply. She did reply but I could vaguely remember what she said.
Remembering I was here with Zat for the keys, I sat up searching frantically for him. To my relieve, there he was not far from me, slumped against the wall murmuring to himself. I called out to him, "Hey bro, wassup with the emoism? You got the keys?" He replied, "It's the end bro, the whole world's gonna be flooded. Grab what is precious to you and make a run for it."
The following scene, we found ourselves in this cage-like enclosed tunnel of sorts. Zat was holding on to Gerry as they fumbled through their bags to take what is dear to them. Wendy and I too were doing the same. As we were rummaging through our stuff, I heard a loud 'thud'. I shouted out, "Run guys! The water is coming!"
I grabbed Wendy's hand and we ran for our lives. Zat and Gerry were ahead of us and not long after, we could see the light at the end of the tunnel. While running, Wendy looked at me with tear-filled eyes endearingly and I knew she was saying something to me but I couldn't hear her as my main focus was to make sure that I get her out alive.
When we were near the exit, the water has caught up with us and all four of us were submerged totally by the merciless rush of the angry water. I held on tight to Wendy and passed my 'air' to her after which I 'told' her to relax so as that I could pull her to safety. Gerry was already pulling Zat towards the exit when I turned to look at them.
The next scene, the four of us were out of the tunnel and Zat and Gerry were swimming towards the safety platform which Zat was telling us about. I was still pulling Wendy as she was a weak swimmer. I prayed to God to give me strength to overcome this obstacle as I was very tired and am feeling weak and I praised him for having me take the life-saver course. The swim felt like forever and I could see from everyone's eyes that they are giving up hope. I looked at Wendy and she told me to let her be for that I could definitely save myself if I let go of her. I smiled back and said that I would not do so for she means everything to me. Suddenly, we heard soft voices that sounded like screaming as we got closer, we could see Jae and Jess waving frantically to us. We hurriedly swam towards them and were ecstatic that we had made it alive.
The last scene was that I was swimming back into the tunnel with Zat as we both had to get something from our bags. On our way, we saw this container which had this gigantic human lying inside and we made our way there to catch a breather. We then continued on our way after our rest.
We took the stuff we needed and as I was about to make my way out, I couldn't see Zat anymore. The only companion I had was fear and it was having plenty of fun seeing how I panicked as I drowned in my own concoction of pain and misery of the negative what-if.
I struggled as it felt more tedious than before as I made my way back but I managed remembering that my life belonged to my brothers and that I must live on. Thank God everyone was there when I got back and with the rejoicing, the whole landscape changed.
We were high up on a floating platform above this battlefield made up of a cross between the plains and the shore with lots of boulders. We watched people of different tribes fought and later on they joined forces to battle giant fishes and monsters from the sea.
I could recognise that some of the warriors were my friends and the massacre of the monsters was too ruthless even for my taste. Most importantly, this whole war between all of them was meaningless. "Shouldn't this world be one of which we are at peace with one another?" I screamed. This stopped everyone in their tracks and a weird phenomenon happened. The whole world started to spin and then all was white.
Laying on this all white place were only Wendy, her current guy, Zat, Gerry, Jae, Jess, X.M. and Trixy. Zat and Gerry talked and started to walk further away followed by Jae and Jess who did the same. It is as if they had discussed on what they should do and had taken the 'path' they had decided upon. X.M. then left after bidding us goodbye.
Wendy looked at me and said, "What is your decision and where will you be heading now?" She got up with a smile and carried on saying, "it is time for us all to move on too. Regrets do not exist in my dictionary but there may just be an exception..."
Trixy got up and stared lovingly into my eyes with her right hand extended and said, "Time for us to go." I held on to her hand and she pulled me up. I turned to look at Wendy and saw her being dragged away by her boyfriend... She was crying... I felt hurt and wished maybe I could have done more for her and hoped that she did not make that choice of choosing him over me but that is the past.
I turned back and looked at Trixy, holding her hand tight in mine; I flashed my infamous grin and said, "Let's go!" I woke up after saying that feeling all miserable and upset. I ain't sure if this is a dream or a nightmare, moreover the whole complicated jump of events were so fictional.
Is there any meaning to this at all? I felt there is in terms of my own interpretation of it but I shall not write about that as I would like you readers to go on and crack your own brains on this. God Bless and have fun readers.
