It's an evening bed side prayer. (you might have heard it in a number of films) Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, and if I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.
i think what you portrayed is in fact a real creature... who hasn't seen things like this in a dream, or as they are drifting away to sleep... its a whole different dimension. Even if it is just constructs of the mind, so is waking life... so either you look at everything as real, or everything as fake.
I think that you are right in the sense that everything that can affect emotions,thoughts and beviour is real on some level. We have REAL dreams and we have REAL hallucinations. Though some "levels" of reality are more stable than others, some are more oftenly reacurring, and some are easier to "wake up" from than other. So, in my mind there is Ultimate Reality, and there are various levels of "illusion" in which to experience ones life. Most human beings, including myself, are dressed in layer upon layer of veils that makes us blind to Ulitmate Reality. I'd say it is time to wake up.
Hey, is this awful creature raping the girl with his lightning during her sleep?!?! And licking her face?!? Yuck! I'm completely frightened, I won't sleep because of that!-_- I don't want to be raped!!!O_o
