I have a lot of bad dreams at night.  Probably ever night.  I'm assuming every night.  I don't remember them all.  Most of them are teethfallingoutnightmares.  These are common for a lot of people.  They usually start with my molars.  Loose in the gums.

I can move them with my tongue.  They wiggle and I taste blood.  Most of the nightmare is anticipating when exactly I'm going to lose the teeth.  When they do come out, I either chew them up or swallow them.  Usually I wake up before I have time for all of them to fall out.

Once, though, they all did.  It was awful.  I could feel my exposed gums and tongue the little holes where teeth once were.  I mashed my gums together and tried to talk, but I could not speak.  I found a mirror in a dark room and flipped on the switch.  The first thing I saw was the numb, blood-covered, pink mess in my mouth.  But when I inspected my face, the person looking back at me was not me.  I don't remember his features exactly... just that his eyes were just as empty as our mouths.

I am convinced that some day I will meet him.  I know he is out there and he wants to find me.

And when he does, we're going to have a lot to talk about.

  1. I'm so relieved to know that I'm not the only one who has these xD. They're pretty creepy and feel very real sometimes. I like waking up feeling all my teeth there, it's relieving :P
