Boats, Trains And Minions

Last night I had a weird dream that I’m going to need to translate.  The whole thing was either a school trip or a trip with school friends, plus one significant other.

The first scene was at a port and we had to get on a boat.  The boat was a normal boat shape I guess, but a bit kind of, well, spherical.  It was made out of green tiles.  We need to get on it to get wherever we were going.

A few us said that it wasn’t safe because the sea was rough and the boat would sink.  A few people went on it and the boat departed and, after a short while, capsised.

Everyone onboard was rescued and while that was happening we found a chest containing some wooden plaques.  They were red with a gold trim and a gold diamond in the middle and were apparently from the Titanic.

Second scene we got on a better, safer boat when the storm had died down.  It was very art deco.  For some reason a load of the girls who were there put on bikinis and started strutting.  I’ve chosen that word carefully! The significant other also put on a bikini and sunglasses.  A pet hate of mine is sunglasses being worn indoors but I don’t think that was a significant plot point! She didn’t walk around on the deck, but stayed with me.

Third scene was running to catch a train.  It was the same group of people as in the other places.  I ran down the platform looking for the person who was with me on the boat.  I sat down on the train and the Minion movie was about to start but I was more fussed about finding this other person again.

 


 

I know there’s something there to do with emotions and relationships, but there’s too much there for me to really work out!  It was the first time in a long time that I’ve had a dream like that though.

Waiting for a train
Going nowhere in a nowhere station
Staying up last night
Going nowhere with my trains of thought
Sleeping with your boy
Going nowhere in a long distance relation
Blinded of your senses
By the fear of unrequited love

Once more I woke up in the moonlight
Once more our paths crossed through the night
And a moment’s hesitation
Your silent invocation
But you shielded me from your glow
Like a moth against your window
And I’m too shy to stop you in your tracks
Oh you leave me in the dark

Drifting in my boat
Going nowhere with my aspirations
You and me connected
Unexpected in our drifting thoughts
But you still see him
And I am sinking in the storm of separation
Blinded of my senses
By the fear of unrequited love

Once more I woke up in the moonlight
And twice more our paths crossed through the night
And a moment’s hesitation
Your silent invocation
But you shielded me from your glow
Like a moth against your window
And I’m too shy to stop you in your tracks
Oh you leave me in the dark again
And I need someone
To stop me from drifting
It’s getting late to be travelling
