Perplexing Dreams

Based on a true story
.

I've been having strange dreams that I can’t interpret
Each dream is like the one I had the previous night
In my dreams I have incredible energy and power
I’m like a disembodied super-intelligent life form
I have invisible wings and I can fly faster than angels
.

The dreams seem to be real events and it perplexes me
I’m always afraid of ugly spirits or something else
And I'm always trying to escape from things I can’t see
I feel like I’m trapped in a dark underground place
And I explode like a bomb to get out, but I don’t die
.

I find myself flying high over the terra firma and the sea
The earth suddenly disappears and I'm in fright
And then I see endless black, sometimes white, space
Some kind of force is pushing me towards the unknown
I can’t stop myself from being pulled into the vacuum
.

I want to know what’s beyond this scary place,
But fear overwhelms me when I reach a certain distance
I begin to struggle for breath and then I wake up
In my dreams I'm extremely powerful, yet I'm so afraid
I feel like I’m not human and I don't belong here
