My grasp on reality is not always real.
Especially when it is filtered through... My Nightmare Brain!
MY NIGHTMARE BRAIN
I thought I was asleep and running for my life in the dream world... but, I wasn't!
I determined that I was actually wide awake and running for my life in a horrible daydream!
That is until the snarling monster caught up to me and slashed my back with its sharp claws!
I was a dead man, until I remembered that, 'Oh yea, I'm in that nightmare dream loop again,' and I'll just have to suffer my nightmare brain again until I really awaken!
