Dream Zone: Things Left Unsaid
I dreamed I sat on my bed with a little girl who played video games. Suddenly, a man came out of the closet. Everything became dark, and the man took the little girl. The little girl tried to cry with her mouth wide open, but no noise came out. I started screaming, “What did you do?!” over and over. The man went back into the closet and closed the door. I wanted to stay asleep to help the little girl, but I heard myself screaming to wake up and write it down.

From Lauri: The closet and the little girl with the silent scream indicate there could be something you’re keeping to yourself, keeping private, or not speaking up about. Also, look at what you said to the man as something you are really saying to yourself: “What did you do?” Have you said that to yourself lately?
