Forest of Spiders (Dream explained as a poem)

Postby ManicMusic7 » Sat Feb 02, 2019 12:28 pm

I will be explaining my dream in prose, because I'm feeling creative.

We are walking through the forest,
My lover and I,
Where canopy and floor are dimly lit,
By the moon so high

Our humble guide leads us on,
Torch in hand;
It's flickering flame casting golden light
Upon the land

But something is amiss.
Something is strange.
Things lurk in this forest
Of immeasurable age.

Then I see them,
Those creatures of the night.
Their eyes reflect like gems,
In the glow of the torch light.

A legion of eight legged creatures,
Sprawling on the trees and floor,
Each a different shape and size,

The sight shakes me to my core.

Panic alights in our hearts,
The fear sets in,
But our legs won't carry us,
Instead our guide greets us with a grin.

"These beings are docile."
Says the guide
"There is no reason to be scared,
No reason to hide."

Our hearts still unsettled,
But more at peace,
We continue deeper into the forest,
Being mindful of the beasts.

We come upon a clearing,
Stepping through the verdant green,
Moonlight spills upon a felled tree;
An uncomfortable, ominous scene.

We approach the hollowed out husk,
It's trunk a maw of enormous size,
But what lied inside was the true horror,
That abomination with those eight, monstrous eyes.

It's appendage reaches for me.
I await death.
I close my eyes.
I take my final breath.

In that moment I wake,
Unsure of where I am.
I realize I'm in bed,
And that the dream has come to an end.

I hope you all enjoyed that, but in all seriousness I feel like there is some serious imagery in this dream that I can't quite decipher. Any and all opinions are welcome!

Beautifully written..
The forest usually represents lack of clarity " can't see the wood for the trees" even though your with your lover and it's romantic.. something is still amiss and romance doesn't alleviate the sense of strangeness or separation.. forest of spiders symbolising world wide web or matrix of knowledge/thinking.. guide seems to be false guide as it only has torch light.. ie not true light..guide maybe desire or seeking.. clearing in forest perhaps some insight emerges.. fallen tree perhaps representing fallen angels or loss of tree of life itself... Hollow tree perhaps empty feeling you need to fill (not sure really).
Dream indicates you wait for death or submit to death..only to wake up in your body..perhaps dream implying you only see life through the physical senses causing sense of separation and feeling somewhat lost.. just some ideas.. hope it helps..
The best interpretation is the dreamers own interpretation.
