Tiny moments

Forever marching on, Time stops for no one. I was catapulted from one scene to the next, constantly aging. I kept trying to hold on to my memories but they literally kept slipping through my fingers like water, little rivulets of action streaming away from me...I couldn’t stop it. No matter how many times I tried to gulp sip or gorge myself on them. “Time waits for no one. Time waits for no one.” I heard this over and over, sometimes casually speaking to me, or screaming. Either way, I curled up in a ball. Behind my eyes, the last dregs of memory replayed one last time: I was screaming at my mother about how I don’t trust her boyfriend suddenly waltzing into her life. I was spitting and raging, veins standing out like the Great Wall of China all over my face and neck. She closed her eyes -closed them to me! - so she didn’t have to see me rage in the twilight room. This sent me on another rampage. The whites of my eyes, the arteries in them looking like red clawed hands reaching out of the grave. For some reason, my gaze shifted towards the window. Daylight. Condensation gathered, one collecting to a tear, and slipped down, reflecting how I felt inside. “Another night wasted,” I croaked as I climbed warily into bed. “Another day wasted.” The up and down of staying up all night to sleep all day is wearing on me. I stared at mom’s darkened figure, how nonchalant she seemed at possibly being duped again, and closed my eyes. My receding pool has become but a puddle. The last thing I saw, that tiny moment, was yelling at my mother for her girlish folly.

AI generated interpretation This dream could represent your feelings of powerlessness and frustration in a situation that is out of your control. It could be the feeling of not being able to protect your mother from a potentially dangerous or damaging situation. It could also be a reflection of your own sense of aging, and the feeling that time is slipping away from you. The dream could be a reminder to take initiative and act on your own behalf, instead of just waiting for something to happen. It could also be a reminder to appreciate the moments that you have, and to not let them slip away.
