The disadvantages of being an avid dreamer

Ummm...What I am going to throw before you is a disease inflicting dice...I don't know whether this disease is contagious or not... So, I would like to give you a suggestion! Read at your own risk...
       Have you ever got up in the morning and felt like you have left a part of you behind...behind in the other world...the world you visit every night...the world that neglects reality! I am brushed with this feeling every morning. As soon as I open my eyes...a disorientation follows. Like I'm stuck between two worlds!
      While the warmth of the sun's rays plays hide and seek in my room, I try to re-establish the severed connection with the conscious world. Galloping on the borders of the consciousness are the various dreams that took shelter in my mind. Then, the wall between the two worlds breaks and they reach across, showing me vivid images of the plots hatched. Often, they are not pleasant.
        Sometimes, I feels as if someone has hurled a brick at my face. A voice inside my head says,"Please get down now. The roller coaster ride ends here!" And believe me, it's not at all pleasant when you are run over by recollection of the dream you saw last night. If the signal is clear, I'm able to see each and every minute detail. If not, then I'm only able to catch few scenes. This disease of watching inexplicable and horrendous dreams is swelling up inside my mind. Very unpleasant. The after-effects include fear, confusion, worry and recollection of every horrible thing you ever saw.
         Now, that you have read this, I'm not sure how you will fare tonight. I have no idea if the demon of dreams will hunt you down or not. Stay safe.

P.S. Don't mind but I take my dreams too seriously!
P.P.S. For all those who get scared easily- don't take it to the heart people ;)

Okay....I wholeheartedly accept that I am the laziest person on this earth. After a short tennis match with my conscience, I managed to type in the blog site address. And as I'm punching the letters on the keyboard, the whirlpool of words threatens to drown me in the ocean of stories that have taken refuge in the most stubborn corner of my mind. Maybe, I should have uncorked the stories sooner.
         But, no harm done. At least not till today. Things have changed. I'm a certified nocturnal now. I don't really feel bad about being one. Because night is somehow a better haven. You are aloof. The mind can touch the potentials of untowed emotions. Sometimes, night turns it's back on me.
    Since the past few weeks, I've been reading a lot. Vampires, Werewolves, Detectives, Victorian England, you name it! And, I had one more reason to stay awake. The FIFA world cup! Life is interesting after midnight. On one side is the welcomed noise from the real world of football and the imagined world of characters from my favourite books. On the other side is the silence that arches back like a feline and then jumps on you, like the night sky smothering you!
    There was a time when I wasn't afraid of the dark night. I don't know why the calm whispers of trees and the snores of sleeping birds have started to bother me so much now. I can't bear the stillness that night brings. A fear grips me. And even though I try not to, I vividly remember the faces of those ugly ghosts and psychics, who starred in various horror flicks! From there it gets funny. My inner voice laughs at me for being ridiculous. But i shoo it away with an excuse of just being human. Then, somehow, twisting and fluttering in my bed, I manage to drift away. Away from those mangled faces. Away from my fears.
          Light takes over and sets fire to those bothering thoughts. It does not end there. I wake up with diffused memories of various dreams manufactured by my subconscious mind. After a few moments, they hit me like a tsunami, magnified! I laugh at some. Laugh at the idiocy of my subconscious mind.
       There end the adventures of night. I'll miss them when the holidays end and adventures of the day will overpower my body. And I'll drift away even before the clock strikes 12!
