Oh no my tail has gone?
April 10, 2010
Last night I had a dream that I remembered, you see I hardly ever remember them, once every 3 months if I am lucky, they are so illusive normally, but last nights has stayed with me for most of the day. Partly because I wanted to capture the feeling, and two it was rather disturbing. It started with myself as a mermaid, nothing really new I dreamt of these before but this time it was so beautiful, my tail was long and glossy and I could feel the power as I swished it around. Everything felt smooth and silky and laying back in the water looking up at the suns ray filtering down into the blue depths I had a strange feeling, looking down I could see my tail floating away, and felt bereft……….. I was sobbing and beginning to sink and my heaart was so sad, but then I realised I had two legs, long and lean and could swish them back and forth, and then I remembered I could walk on land and felt so excited, as I broke the surface I awoke…………
