Default Dark allies.

I remember a very vivid and lucid dream I had some time back and it was a strange one. I was walking along in a big city (not sure which one). It was a hot summer day and full of bright sunshine. I decided to take a short cut to where ever it was I was going and knew the way through all the back allies as I had done it before. I turned off the main street into the first ally and there was nothing wrong just the normal journey. After two or three turnings I realised that the allies were dark, cold and all the sun had gone and everything was in shadow there was also a feeling that I was being followed by something big and black like a moving shadow but when I looked there was nothing there yet I could feel eyes on me the whole time.

The allies were also not the ones I normally walked down as they were kept clean and people friendly as many people used them as short cut to all sorts of places. The allies I was in were dirty and had rubbish piled up either side and sometimes it was even blocking the ally so you had to climb over it. There did not seem to any way out either as none of these led anywhere other than into another even filthier ally and the more I walked the more trapped I felt and the more labyrinthine the allies became. The walls on either side of these allies were high and slime covered nor did there appear to be any doors or any other entrances into any of the buildings. I could still sense the shadow monster behind me and it was getting closer all the time so I had to keep moving and all the time the place was getting darker, like the kind of dark you get as a huge storm builds and being trapped here was just as oppressive. After running about feeling terrified I came to wider ally that looked a little cleaner than the others and so ran down it. This proved it be a big mistake as it turned out to be a dead end. There was a high mesh gate at the end of the filthy path and the tall black gate was locked. Beyond the gate was the lovely sun filled street that I was trying to get to and the noise of the traffic and people. Everyone looked happy and they were all having a good time on that street either shopping or sitting at one of the many cafes and bars. Everything was brightly coloured and cheerful, the people were dressed in vivid colours. On my side of the gate all was dark and grey the sunshine did not enter here nor did the happy atmosphere of the street out there. Then I heard the noise behind me and felt fear as the monster had found me, it was coming down the ally towards me. I screamed as I shook the gate and though some of those people were no more than inches from me they did not see me or hear me. I screamed more as the shadow thing came closer, it knew I was trapped and there was nowhere for me to go but still the people on the other side of the gate did not see or hear me. They were unaware of me as I was in a different world to them. They walked by the gate as the shadow monster grabbed me still knowing nothing. They were aware of the tall metal gate as they could see it but they could not see what was going on behind it even though it was mesh and they could see straight through it.

Wow, what a dream. And in living color it sounds like. Any idea what the monster did to you or did you wake up before something more happened?

I felt that I was running for my life. It was a dream that kept on repeating itself every night at a time when I was in a black depression.

I always have nightmares like that one in vivid colour and they are always completely lucid, I also remember them on waking and that nightmare only ever got as far as the monster grabbing me. That monster was big and black and ugly and it did to me after the nightmare ended is anybodies guess. That I will leave your imagination.

I may turn it into a short story as I am writing a book of them now and they are angry and bloody and violent. I get a lot of inspiration from my dreams and my nightmares. Sometimes I even dream of love.
