Word for Wednesday (W4W) #37


Play along here!

This week’s word is…


Ah dreams! I am a big dreamer and always try to remember mine and frequently google them to try to work out their meanings. Many times the meanings really do relate to something happening in my life at the time. But then again, I guess you could argue, as with horoscopes, it’s all down to interpretation!

I get terrible nightmares where I wake up screaming – I actually purposefully wake myself up. It is difficult to explain, but the thing that happens in this recurrent nightmare is so awful, I feel an overwhelming need to escape it. I often experience a form of sleep paralysis where I can feel myself desperately trying to scream but my throat closes and won’t allow me to do so. It’s horrible. But I do manage to eventually wake myself and usually the OH too.

Other times I can experience lucid dreaming, which is wonderful! Or I can wake from a pleasurable dream and return to it if I try to, which is also a great feeling. And yes, I can have those dreams… the highly pleasurable ones… you know what I am talking about! Oh those are the BEST!

However, (as the word is used in film theory to represent a dreamlike/surreal state), I suspect I will pass through today in an oneiric fog, due to the fact that I got barely any sleep at all the last two nights. I have a busy day ahead of me and, whereas all I want to do is snuggle back under the duvet and snooze, I must get on with my usual chores.

I apologise for the short and distinctly poor W4W offering today, but I think you guys and gals will take pity on a blurry eyed, messy haired blogger, sitting in her bed with tea, trying her best to produce something!

My only hope is that tonight I will sleep and, with a bit of luck, enjoy a couple of good dreams and no nightmares.

Tell me about your dreams!

  1. Nice word, I’ll be posting my effort later 🙂
    I don’t often remember my dreams, the ones that I do remember vary. Sometimes they’re weird, sometimes good, sometimes bad. And sometimes I do have ‘those’ dreams, and they really are the best!
    Hope you sleep better tonight and may your dreams be filled with pleasure 😉

  2. Nice word – never heard of that one before. I know what you mean about the sleep paralysis dreams – horrific, aren’t they. I had a lot of recurring nightmares when I was a kid – screaming faces rushing at me out of the darkness. Not much to it, but pretty memorable al the same. The other recurring dream I had was about fourteen years ago, always being late for class, for an exam – all education related. I enrolled for a foundation course with the OU and they stopped immediately.
    My W4W is all about babies – or is it cooking? https://lynnmlovewords.wordpress.com/
