In this dream, I’m on a pirate ship. This pirate ship is in a pond, half the pirate ship is hanging out of the pond on land. A pirate is making me walk the plank. The pirate says to me (with his sword slightly piercing my back) “these are your options, die or wake up now.”
Out of total fear, I chose the answer, wake up.
I woke up.
Still the scariest dream of my life.
You can’t convey fear in a dream through words to a listening individual, simply because the listener doesn’t know what you felt.
I assure you I was terrified.
