It’s been haunting me for three days. Flickering on the rim of my mind, tormenting me with vivid flashes of color and.. Emotion. I long for each revisit, regardless of how short.
It’s become my drug... And all this over a half-forgotten dream...
I only write this on a whim, praying with the deepest depths of my heart that i will be able to recall more of my dream. The fear and joy i felt mingled together even as i was dreaming it, so profound that i thought it the truth!
Only 1 shred of it remains, and i’m bashing my head apart trying to find more, the scrap feeding my habit and whipping me into a frenzy. In this shred, i was in some kind of mall, with a girl... Obviously i knew her, we were close... But i don’t know how. I can only guess at her name, and physically i’m lost. The only thing about her that i recall is that she was thin... Not harrowingly so, but clearly not heavyset. We were enjoying each others company, and laughing... Always laughing... Suddenly she jumped onto my back. I don’t know why she did it, but i remember what followed.
We went down the escalator, her clinging to me, me struggling to maintain my balance. I didn’t say anything, but i wanted her to let go to avoid a fall, then... Then i saw. The escalator featured protruding gears, the metal swirling round and round, steel teeth gnashing around my feet as i struggled to keep us both up, those swirling teeth growing nearer and nearer to my feet as i struggled.
But that is all i can remember... And it tears at my soul! What was my dream saying? Could it be a warning? A reminder... A newfound hope?
Of this... I know not... But i long for a repeat...
