Dream Shift

Something strange has happened. My dreams, they have always been an anomaly to me, and to those around me. For as long as I can remember they have been filled with mass murderers, giant spiders, evil guinea pigs, mysterious women living under my bed, and an assortment of other terrifying subjects. I do have pleasant…

Check On Me, Okay?

Two nights ago I sleep walked into Isaac’s room. He was in bed working on homework and had papers sprawled out everywhere. Isaac says he could tell I was sleepwalking because I was in my glassy eyed zombie hunchback position. I clutched my stomach and said to him “I’m in pain and I’m scared.” Before…
