That is wierd.
Between the ages of 13 and 17 I lived in the Ozark mountains, Missouri / Arkansas border, and we had goats and rabbits that we would sell the meat and
pelt from at local markets. Anyway, I had a dream one night and it wasn't so much WHAT was in the dream as it was the FEELING that the objects in the
dream were giving off.
The dream was focused on the side of the house where the animals were, and while there was a little focus on the rabbits, most of it was on the goats,
the fencing and the thick woods that surrounded the house. There was this shimmering, kind of like how the intense heat shimmers off the desert floor,
that covered everything in the dream. And the animals, the goats especially, gave off this feeling that there was something very wrong with
everything. This shimmering also gave the effect that everything in my fied of sight was slighly changing shape and then back again at all times.They
were looking right at me, but the way they were looking wasn't anything out of the ordinary. It was like there was something behind their eyes that
was focusing right inside me.
In the dream I couldn't really tell if it was day or night. Instead, there was like this "film" that covered everything. It alternated between a
kind of orangish red and piss yellow. The same shade of yellow and gray that dead grass has in the winter. Between the shimmering and the coloring, I
remember being very disturbed, almost frightened but not quite, by the whole thing. Kind of an anxious feeling in a way. There was no talking or noise
whatsoever in this dream, just this feeling of dread. When I woke up I remember feeling very lackadasical, melencholy and.........just wrong somehow.
I don't think possessed would be the right word, just very negatively affected by the dream. This feeling lasted for 3 days, a feeling of being half
asleep and half awake, and it was obvious to my 2 brothers and mom that something wasn't right. So much so that I asked my older brother the next day
if I could get "realxed"
with him, and he told me that that might not be a very good idea.
At that point in time, the 2 brothers who were with me and my mother were pretty close. We talked a lot, joked around and had some pretty good times.
We didn't have much, but we had each other and were happy enough with that, Most of time, you know. But right after that dream and the 3 days that
followed, the whole "aura" of the house changed. they could all tell that something was wrong with me but they didn't know quite what it was. I
remember that everything around the house was a bit quieter than normal and everyone just kind of avoided me. School was out of the question for those
3 days too. I don't remember exactly when that dream took place, but I do remember that it was between my birthday and the winter solstice. I don't
know why I remember that.
Anyway, that's my weird dream.
(I know it's an obvious choice, but it's still a great song)
