    In my dream last night I was in what I think was a hotel/hostel and I was trying to evacuate everyone because of smoke. However it seemed that no matter what floor I was on I just could not find an exit. But I could see through windows that people were outside – some faces I recognized and some I had never seen.

    My dream started by me waking up in a room full of people sleeping, and i realised that there was a party a few hours before and everyone was completely smashed. however, when a few friends and i got up, there was a tall fat guy with short black hair and a little beard with 2 guns. i managed to take one, and my friends and i made a run for it, leaving the others inside, but that didn’t matter because the fat guy was chasing us into a forest. soon, he just ignored the others and focused on chasing me, because i had his gun. when i turned and tried to shoot, i missed. and when i tried again, nothing happened, because he’d emptied it beforehand. i woke up just as he was cornering me against a wall made of grey sticky-back plastic sheets.

    This is the dream I’d like to interpret:

    My ex girlfriend and I are where we are now relationship ship wise. I mean early stages. She is still with her current boyfriend Cory, but she is seeing me. She came to my friend Tyler’s to have a sleepover. The next morning a cop shows up and we all get arrested. Cory told my ex girlfriend’s mom that she was seeing me again and turns out her mom had a restraining order on me. The cop took her in for questioning and we were all expecting to go to jail. That night at the grocery store, my ex girlfriend and a group of girls show up. All the girls are hugging me and talking to me, but my ex wouldn’t. They are trying to make me feel better, but it is obvious something is up. Turns out that was part of the deal. As long as she never talked to me again, her mom and current boyfriend wouldn’t press charges and get me sent to jail. So I would try and talk to her through other people, but she was too scared to talk to me. Finally she did and said that she had lied to the cops and Cory to make sure I didn’t go to jail, but that also made it so we could never see each other again.

    I suppose mine was simple but effective. I’m in my bedroom and wanting to leave. I open the window to do so, jump down, and begin running off. As I get so far, a weird spiky monster (sorry for sounding immature) runs into me and I’m immediately back in my room, only now I realize I have to pull off all the doors of a chocolate Advent Calendar in order to kind of satisfy whatever it is that’s not letting me leave. Anyway, I just can’t do it, and each time I leave through the window, sometimes with the torn off pieces of calendar, I get to a similar distance and immediately appear back in my room. It seems to loop forever until I wake up. Completely strange.

    I have a reoccuring dream where Im always being held captive and I cannot escape…and its always by a large group of people either trying to poison me or just keep me in a small space.

    As many dreams this does´not make sense.

    I was with children in a dark house, protecting them. Excrement strarted to fall from the ceiling. The people around me were afraid, like me.
