67 — At Least Now You Can Have Me

December 23, 2008


From E.

So, in my dream I was with him and his girlfriend. However, his gf was paying no attention to him, so me and him were just hanging out and having a good time. He later confessed to me that he was tired of dealing with her and trying to make things work when she treated him poorly. I told him to do what he thought would make him happy – dump her or keep trying. Then all of a sudden all three of us were in a golf cart, and he dropped me off at the entrance of where gf lives and he told me to wait. He came back without his gf and told me “I dumped her and she didn’t even care…” so I responded, “Well at least now you can have me.” After an exchange of smiles, we decided to date, and then I woke up.

The very next day, they broke up. They got back together the day after, though

65 — Waking Epiphany

people-woman-white-dress-6From L.

i dreamed of you
setting beside me in your car
you were gently holding my hand and looking into my eyes
you were smiling
you promised me that you’d never leave me
you kissed my hand
you made me feel so safe
…i woke up
then you did things that made me not want to dream ever again
i hate dreams now

64 — Dreaming Epiphany

0603fash_pale10From J.

It was a maze filled with horrible things – creatures from hell, black crows and rats. I was wearing a silky dress which made me look much more pale than before. The sky was black, and clouds circled above as a massive thunderstorm erupt only seconds later. I was frantic, I was crying. And then, I saw him, and I ran towards him. Everything felt so real.

All of a sudden, I woke up, and my eyes were wet. I wanted to dream about it again, so I closed my eyes and almost back in a flash I was back in the dream…

I was in his arms, and he looked down at me as he smiled and touched my face. It felt so surreal this time, not the way he does to me everytime we meet. I felt so safe, and I fell asleep right then and there.

It was so perfect.

After I woke up, I called him and told him that I loved him.

53 — The Starbucks Between Us

December 10, 2008


65007512_3e26edb89eFrom M.

“For the past few weeks I’m having a recurring dream of us meeting half way between our two cities. I’ll park and wait for you in the Starbucks parking lot, and wait. You arrive and we both get out of our cars and jump into each others arms. You’ve never been one to cry, but you bawl your eyes out and whisper in my ear how much you love me, how much you miss me, and how you never want to be without me again. You hold my chin up with one hand and with the other wipe my tears and kiss me. 

Then I wake up and remember how the last time we spoke, you told me you hated me and never wanted to speak to me or see me again. Distance and heart break are the worst pains I’ve felt in my life so far.

Every night I go to sleep, I hope I keep dreaming this dream. At least for some small time I won’t have to miss you as much.”

46 — The House That We Once Shared

December 8, 2008

From E.

Edward Hopper

In my dream I walk back into the house that we once shared and as if by magic, it is once again filled with laughter.
I walk in to the dining room and its packed with people. Some I know, some I don’t but I see you and our eyes lock. I get that feeling in my stomach. You know the one, where it feels like you’ve been punched and all of the air is sucked out of you?
I notice that dinner is being served and I am being asked by a stranger to take my seat. I sit across from you. Everybody is talking and we, remarkably, fall into easy conversation.
Then you start laughing. You laugh and you laugh, throwing your head back, as if you don’t have a care in the world. As if you didn’t abandon me. As if you didn’t abandon your newborn son. As if nothing ever happened and my hurt never existed.

45 — Circles

December 8, 2008


hugFrom A.

I dreamt of you last night.

I was playing a video game while laying down. You came and lay next to me, played the video game with me.
Then, I’m not sure who started it, but we hugged. A glorious, lasting motion that deserves some holier term than a mere ‘hug.’ We held each other. And lay next to each other. And slept.
You smiled at me. A purer smile i have yet to see. There was no scorn. No cynicism. No lust. Just pure, unadulterated love.

And then I awoke to cold, cruel reality. Where we spin circles around each other each and every day. Where I ache for my dreams to become reality.

From M.  

i dreamt that the boy i am infatuated with told me he loved me. he missed me. and that he would wait for me.

i hate reality.


From G.  

I dreamt that I waited for you outside your dorm room; still playing the waiting game with you even in my dreams. You saw me numerous times, but you completely ignored me and instead let “him” in as soon as you saw “him”. I dreamt I became a mere “second-class” friend when, not too long ago, I was once your one and only love.


From L.  

I don’t dream.  I never have.  Or if I do I don’t remember.  This website makes me feel defective. 


From C.

It’s valentines day.  I’m alone again and I’m cutting out construction paper hearts and taping them to all over my genitals.   


From G.

I dreamed about you dreaming about me.  

Goodnight.  Goodnight.  Goodnight.
