Fear of the dark

I'm only afraid of the dark the moment I wake up from a bad dream. I just did at it's only a quarter to one here. The night is completely black when there are no clouds in the sky, even the village a mile or so away looks like it's sleeping or even dead.

I don't remember what the dream was about but it feels as if had something to do with the past. A childhood memory maybe, the things I'm only now beginning to understand. When I was little I thought that everyone around me was honest and good, and I never processed the fact that maybe they weren't.

I'm going back to bed soon, I just need to stop my heart from racing. It only works when I think of the sun that's coming up tomorrow.

  2. I honestly felt that too. The last time I fell off to sleep, I dreamt of someone chasing me. that was totally scary. Were I am situated in that dream was sort of like in a place where darkness dominates. Pheww! I was just grateful that it wasn't for real. hehehe.

  3. Most of my dreams are really vivid. So when I have a nightmare, and I wake up in the darkness...it scares the crap out of me. Sometimes I can't even go back to sleep.

  4. Agreed- I hate waking up and being SO scared, heart pounding, blood racing. I end up laying on my back, my body rigid, watching the shadows till i fall back asleep.
