At age 16 I had 3 dreams that were terrifying and vivid though they were not nightmares per se were incredibly vivid and similar though not identical, and while I remember only bits of the "story" the emotions that they caused me are so clear to me that it is as if they happened last night.
In the first dream I was standing on a hilltop looking upon a modern city, presumably my "dream city" basking in the glow....people were happy, people were content going about their lives enjoying fruit markets and basically content. After a time, I began to feel as though something was wrong, there was a feeling in the air that something just was not right. As this feeling occurred to me something happened to the city...Everything changed, It was very much as if the "polarity" changed, what was once contentment was now discontent, what once was happy now was sad, what once was joy now was hate. At the same time as this polarity changed there was a massive physical upheaval, the ground that I walked on rumbled and shook and the city literally lifted into the sky to reveal an identical city underneath (imagine it like this only turned rotated vertically). The whole structure flipped in place and replaced itself back into the ground and everything was normal...except that everything was different, the people were angry, frightened, hateful, the fruit stands were lifeless, the trees bereft of leaves. It is at this point in the dream that I awoke, and when I awoke, the terror that gripped me in my dream was still present, I was sweating, I was crying, my heart raced at a tempo I'd never felt before. It took me several hours to regain my composure.
The second dream was almost identical to the first only the timeframe was different, rather than being in a modern setting, it was in a much more medieval or renaissance setting (I often thought of it as the times of Hamlet). The feelings were the same, the overall impact was the same, only the details differed. Again upon waking I carried the dream emotions with me and could not sleep afterwards.
The third dream was similar in emotional intensity but with significant differences in detail. Like the first dream I was standing on a hilltop looking at the city (from a different perspective). I did not have the same sense of the emotional polarity of the first two dreams...and nothing changed in the 'polarity' of these dreams, instead what I found was that I was watching the city and it had a clear dome over it and it began to rise up from the ground, tearing itself from the earth and floated up into the sky and away from the earth. I had this terrible feeling that I was being left behind and that this was a terrible burden. Again, at this point I woke, with similar feelings of dread and terror. These dreams all occured about 3 months apart from each other

In another one, I've dreamt that it was daylight throughout the night. I kept noticing it getting later and later, and it was still daylight. Nobody seemed to care all that much.
