Hot night last night, wasn’t too humid, but hot enough that I decided to fire up the new A/C unit to keep the place cool.
Maybe around 4am… I had one of the worst nightmares I’ve had in a while.
I woke up – but I was paralyzed, lying on my stomach in the dark. I felt the cool breeze of the A/C blowing into the room and across my back, my face pressed into the pillow, and my hands at my sides. I couldn’t move my eyes, I couldn’t move my hands, my head, or any of my limbs. I couldn’t even scream.
I lay there screaming for the person next to me to wake me up, fully aware that I was having a nightmare, but no sound came out because like I said – I was paralyzed. Then I wake up and all I see are eyes around me, whether my eyes are opened or closed.
I think I’ll pass on another one of those dreams.
