Don't you just love this post's title? It sounds so much better then "I'm having creepy dreams that are driving me insane" don't you think?
Speaking of dreams, they have been coming to me often, and they are all so similar. Lately, I'm been dreaming a lot about The Mistake (this is the new nickname for my ex-husband). I stopped thinking about him during the day. I haven't seen him since the week before Christmas. So why is he haunting my nights?
My mother, who is very superstitious, says that when you dream about someone, it means that person is thinking about you, or has been thinking about you lately. If that's the case, I really wish The Mistake would stop.
You see, those dreams started right after New Years. The first five or so of those dreams were very similar. In each of them, I went to see him. In one I went there to sign the divorce papers, while in another I went there to see how he's doing. There was a dream where he had a plane crash and I went to see if he's okay. And yet another where I broke into his house to steel something. In each of those dreams, he was so happy to see me, that he promised to change if only I took him back. And I did. And I felt miserable.
I would wake with that daunting feeling of regret and misery eating at me, until reality would come back and I would realize it was just a dream. A creepy dream.
But then, they started to change. I went to see him or meet up with him, but he wasn't there.
And then, the most beautiful thing happened. I would wake up knowing I dreamt of him, but I wouldn't remember the actual dream. No more haunting images from those dark and scary nights. And then, for what seemed like weeks, I stopped dreaming about him altogether. Oh happy day! Come on, sing with me. Oh, happy day!!!
Sadly, those dreamless nights were short lived and I dreamt of him again. This time, I was playing in the yard with Joey when he drove by with his friends, opened the gate, and stole my baby from me. I woke in a cold sweat, happy to see Joey sleeping next to me, wagging his tail happily.
Now I wonder, will those dreams ever leave me alone? Have you ever had dreams that haunted you?
