Dreams

journal entry November 4, 2018

Help. I’m being swallowed up by this dream world. I am having a hard time telling apart which thoughts are my dreams and which are my memories of events that have taken place in my past.

My eyes are tired. They can see things during the day and they continue working throughout the night too. Under my eyelids lights flicker and continue to tell stories of beautiful images that look and sound so real I can feel strong emotions in my sleeping body.

They challenge me. They worry me. Who makes up these stories? Where do they come from? Does it even matter that these images seen under my eyelids will be seen again with eyes wide open?

I mean things could be worse. I could have insomnia.
