Desire’s the Element That I Can’t Fight

Snake Charmer by Octavio Contreras

Dreams are a dangerous, invisible force. The danger lies in their power of unveiling your innermost desires, secrets, and fears. A dream that disturbs your waking hours taunts you to reveal your closeted skeletons to someone who may not be sympathetic, so you repress your subconscious prophecies until they stand over your bedside in the darkest hours of the night again.

Dreams teach you who you really are, despite your own illusions of yourself. They tell you how utterly human you are. Do not take pride in your emotional, intellectual or physical superiority, for a dream may make you appear foolish – if only to yourself. One cry out into the halls of a dark home, and all your efforts in building your daily façade will be for naught.
