Goodbye

I had a really weird dream a few weeks back that person D was trying to kill me and then somehow, during the dream, person D changed into person A. It was a very strange dream and I remember waking up and feeling very disoriented for the rest of the day. So I spent the break during property lecture yesterday googling “what does it mean when you dream that someone is trying to kill you” and I spent the whole break and maybe just a bit of lecture time reading the various interpretations. There was this website that offered psychic services where the psychic will interpret your dream and you can see the psychic over webcam. To be honest, I was very very tempted to try it… BUT I DIDNT because I really don’t want to dabble in all these spiritual/psychic stuff. It didn’t help though that during lunch yesterday, Iris was talking about how the egg she had for lunch the day before was completely tasteless and Judith then said “Maybe it’s because a ghost ate it because after ghosts eat something, then it will have no taste.” And she said it in a completely serious and deadpan manner. It was great. My friends are hilarious.

But I digress. So from all my googling… these are the interpretations that I found to be pretty interesting. (All from http://www.dreammoods.com)

“To dream that you have been killed suggests that your actions are disconnected from your emotions and conscience. The dream refers to drastic changes that you are trying to make. There is a characteristic that you want to get rid of or a habit that you want to end within yourself. Killing represents the killing off of the old parts and old habits. Alternatively, the dream represents feelings of being let down or betrayed by someone in your waking life. You are feeling overwhelmed, shocked and disappointed.

“To see a killer in your dream suggests that an essential aspect of your emotions have been cut off. You feel that you are losing your identity and your individuality. Alternatively, this dream may represent purification and the healing process. You are standing up for yourself and putting a dramatic end to something.

I think that I have milked this topic dry and that I have talked about it numerous times, too much, in fact.

So I guess I only have this to say.

And this beautiful poem that I read on Tumblr.

“I once was talking to a friend.

“Goodbye” I said,
“I have to go now.”

“I would really greatly appreciate
If you would not use that word
Thank you.”

“Why not?” I asked.

“Well, I’ve got a phobia
Of the word ‘goodbye’” my friend explained.

—————————-
good·bye or good-bye also good-by (gd-b)
interj.
Used to express an acknowledgment of parting.
n. pl. good·byes or good-byes also good-bys
1. An acknowledgment at parting, especially by saying “goodbye.”
2. An act of parting or leave-taking: many sad goodbyes.

It was only until recently
That I would use the word
‘Goodbye’.

Somehow, I felt it had more meaning
Than just saying
‘Bye’.

Maybe it was because of the ‘good’,
Maybe it was because it looked nicer,
Or maybe because
I had never used it before.

Maybe because I wanted life
To be good to him.

—————————-
pho·bi·a (fb-)
n.
1. A persistent, abnormal, and irrational fear of a specific thing or situation that compels one to avoid it, despite the awareness and reassurance that it is not dangerous.
2. A strong fear, dislike, or aversion.

He has weird phobias
Like
‘Goodbye’, Balloons, Thunder.

He has weird fetishes
Like
Nice hair on girls, Metal music, I don’t know.

I never said we should discriminate weird people.
In fact,
Weird people should be appreciated
By other weird people
Because society never does.

So, when I say ‘goodbye’,
Don’t be scared.
Instead,
Think of this (not-really-counted-as-a) poem
And let that goodbye be good.”
