I wouldn’t say I had a nightmare last night, but it wasn’t pleasant.
I was at some spooky mansion walking around and they didn’t want me there so they summoned this big lurch-looking guy (you know, Addams family) and he had this long thin knife. I knew what he was going to do with it, but I wasn’t scared and I didn’t try to stop him. I turned my back on him and he ran me through with it. It was kind of painful but I remained silent even as he dragged it though me in a horizontal motion. The worst part of these dying dreams for me is this feeling I get in my throat. I first felt it when I allowed myself to be shot in the heart by a DC a few months ago. Basically it feels like vomit welling up your throat and into your mouth without any spasms. I guess it’s blood or something. Then a few seconds later everything fades to black.
I am basically always lucid during normal dreams now, and I only make minor adjustments when appropriate. This time though I guess I wanted to find out what it would feel like or something. I don’t think I need to repeat the experience though, it was kind of disturbing.
