Insomnia and Buddha Dolphin. [Mar. 24th, 2004|03:37 pm]

[Mood |confusedconfused]

INSOMNIA 5AM

Tonight, sleep evades me.
I cannot grasp it.
It will not let me swoon in its embrace.

Not for me the sweet stumble into slumber;
I shall not lay my weary head
Soft upon my pillow.

Instead, my mutinous eyes have pinned themselves open --
Butterfly wings voluntarily trapped wide
With needles.

And the myriad voices in my head
Chatter and shout with playground abandon;
In wild cacophany --
Loud defiance of my lethargy --
My aching, tired frame.

.....................................

So I couldn't sleep, and subsequently woke late at 3pm. Have done no tidying at all, and had a peculiar dream in which I was a male dolphin, unhappy that I stank of seaweed and saltwater...

I asked the head dolphin (who was Buddha in human form) if I could become a human...which I did...

Then, once the dolphin was a human, I became an unruly pirate...

Buddha dolphin came back for me and I was reprimanded for not using my human time wisely, then we had a massive fight...lots of running round between rooms on a pirate ship while it was sinking, before I was finally caught by Buddha and sent back to the sea.

My human female companion (also me) jumped into the ocean with me, sharing what was left of our human oxygen in kisses on the way down to the ocean floor, till our human forms died and she became a stinky seaweedy dolphin herself...so we sank to the bottom of the ocean and went on our way back to the dolphin city together, having learned our lesson!!

....................................

So what does it mean?

Use my time on earth wisely? Act like a twat and you'll still get the girl? Or do you think I simply need a bath before work tonight;)

dreams

dreams are caused by protein imbalances firing off your neurones in a random manner. too much casein = very vivid dreams. too much animal protein = very colourful dreams.

as to yours?

you're not eating right. you need to eat either tuna or dolphin. or somne good welsh lava bread.

Sweet Dream

First off, I like the poem quite alot. As a long-time insomniac, it's beautiful.
Secondly, I was wondering how on earth you remember your dreams so vividly. Do you keep a dream journal? I tried that. I think I recorded only one. If I'm having a great dream it usually means I've overslept and when I get up I usually need to fly, so subsequently, the dream also flies out of my head. But yours, I would have to say might mean that yes, use your time wisely. And the fact that the girl was also you might mean that you need no one at present, (which you already know).
So there's my wisdom for the day.

Re: Sweet Dream

Thankyou Missy:)) *hugs*

I don't honestly know how I remember my dreams so vividly...I just do...some of my dreams are as vivid as everyday life and when replay them in my head they are on the same level as reality sometimes!!

I do write them down on lj if they've been particularly cinematic/scary or whatever, but more as a means of my recalling them for future use...perhaps as the basis for a short film, or a story or painting or whatever:))

And, I have a tendency to oversleep deliberately...just so I can continue a particularly good dream *grin*

Yep, I don't need anyone at present;) Very astute of you!!

*hugs*
