i dreamed that i was a different person / a woman dressed in a suit jacket and a skirt / walking home from work / i encountered some kids / probably 4th or 5th graders / that made fun of me / we were somehow thrown through a portal into the future / we lived in what we thought was the distant future for quite a while / it was dark dreary and frightening / i looked after the children / we aged several years and the dream really seemed to last that long / we slept in a place that once a theater / eventually i figured out how to get back to our proper time and former ages / one of the grown-up girl children had fallen in love and decided to stay in this parallel dimension / she knew there would be no way to return / in the end we made it back and we all ate cake / it was one of my very few dreams that actually came to an end / right before i awoke
i've woken up from dreams before, having met my lover in a dream, only to have him call me moments later and ask me if i had just met him in a dream in a room with a piano...
how would he know such details if we hadn't really somehow entered one another's dream space?
yes, exactly! in the dream i had, max hadn't realized we were dreaming. i kept telling him we were and i showed him how to let yourself defy gravity and fly in a way, and we flew across citiscapes i've only seen before in my dreams. he still didn't really believe me, so i told him we'd both make ourselves wake up at the exact same time and that doesn't happen very often ever so that would be the test. we both woke up a minute later wide awake and stared at each other and finished each others sentences about the details of a dream.
it's amazing. i wish i knew how to harness the ability, you know?
