The events in this story are true in that I actually had this dream while this storm passed through town. I kept waking up hearing the storm and everything going on, and then would go back to sleep and continue the dream... pretty scary.

----------

It was last night. The air was cold. The wind blew with the force of an army as I was tucked away in a dream, manic, scared, not for myself, but for my mother. She had just been told something, something so horrifying that she gasped for breath; her knees buckled; a stream of horror ran down her skin.

That was last night. Trees shook; they were uprooted; tossed about. The power surged; all over town the darkness of night crept its way along the city streets, but I, I was tucked away in a dream. As I saw how she was affected so, I couldn't help but know what she felt, and what had happened. Those same tears that flowed down mother's skin had now made their way down mine.

This was last night. Shutters and awnings were split in two, slamming, crashing against the house. Sounds of a clumsy thief in the night arose in the darkness, but I was tucked away in a dream. I don't know why it happened or how, that my father could have suffered much, or at all. All I can tell is that for that split second before the crash, his contentment in life and love for his family was made visible in the single tear he had time to shed.

That was the last night. I had always looked upon death as surreal, like it was a fantasy that could skip over my own. Oh! selfishness that was within me, you are finally gone! I know the truth; and I die when it becomes set before me. Scared, alone, fearful of what's next; you are truth personified. I live. I breathe. I die.

That was the last night. That was my dream.
