How To Describe Waking Up In A Ditch But In The Dark

How to describe being in a dark room?

This is some old English homework where I had to describe being in a haunted house:

A cool shudder trickles down your spine. Glancing around nervously, you see somber portraits staring at you from behind layers of dust, seemingly penetrating your very being. Cold, hesitant light streams in through a cracked window, casting eerie shadows on the walls. As you walk forward, you can't help but feel that someone is following you. Whirling around, you see nothing but the empty hallway and the faces in the portraits staring at you. 'Turn back' they seem to say, but you swallow a nervous whimper and continue into the dark bowels of the house...
*******
You enter a dark room in the center of the house. Shadows seem to swirl around your feet, sucking you in. In a burst of panic, you fumble for a light switch. You flip it up and down frantically, but the room remains immersed in darkness. Fear settles in and deep down you know you're not alone in the dark. Something brushes your back. You turn, but there is nothing. Nothing you can see, that is. Outside you can hear the autumn wind howling, and it almost sounds like laughter to your panicked mind. A low chuckle breaks your thought process, directly in front of you. You scream, but hear nothing in the overwhelming blackness. You're being drawn in, drowned in slumbering evil, there is no escape...

Help me describe a dark room?

The room is dark - how much description help do you need?

Just say "The room was pitch black - I couldn't even see my own hand in front of my face. By feeling around I knew I was sitting/lying on ????".

That's it. Go on to say how she feels personally, which (since you're this character's creator) only you will know. You know how she reacts to situations, we don't.

How do I describe a character waking up from a nightmare?

He came awake in the dark and laid there, blinking.This is pretty much how we all awaken from nightmares, and to go into too much detail, or to fabricate some dramatic reaction, would just fall flat. Less is more.

I sometimes dream to fall with my car in a ditch. Is there any meaning behind it?

In general, a car is a symbol of one's ability to get somewhere, figuratively speaking. Driving your car into a ditch would mean that you're worried that while pursuing some goal(s) you're working on nowadays, you might lose focus and land up in a bad situation. It could also mean that you're scared in general of pursuing your goals. It is important to note that you dreamt about falling into the ditch, as opposed to (say) colliding with another car. While colliding with another car can be attributed to bad choices about driving or bad luck, falling into a ditch relates to losing focus or control over the car. So it would seem like you're worried that you will fail because you'll lose focus or control over your goal.

Last ditch effort to save my marriage?

Very long story short, my marriage is failing and I don't know what to do. I love my husband, but I don't like him. We are two very different types of people who had no business getting married in the first place. We are filing bankruptcy because of a very selfish thing he did when we first got married, and my family told me today that they are breaking their silence. They have never tried to interfere before, but today they all told me that I need to leave him because he will ultimately destroy me. I agree with them, but I feel like I need to give this marriage one last chance. I told my husband tonight that if he didn't walk the straight line and do whatever it is that we need to do to fix our finances, that I will leave him. He got a little defensive and blamed me, but said that he will do whatever it takes. We have a three year old son, and I'm most concerned about him. I want my family to be happy and thrive, yet trusting him to do the right thing without giving me grief is a huge risk. We have been through SO much over the last few years, and it was all because of his immaturity and selfishness. Am I right to give it one last shot? I know I'm by no means the perfect wife, but I need a partner, not another child. Leaving him smack dab in the middle of a bankruptcy could be disasterous, but then again, staying with him could be just as disasterous in the long run. Advise, please! I'm so lost.

If you die in a dream, do you ever wake up? If your dreaming mind truly believes that you are dead, what happens?

All that happens is usually you wake up immediately. Seems like other people don't die in their dreams, but I have, many times.An early one was when a bomb exploded, and I woke up suddenly. Another (which has happened multiple times) was being cornered by someone with a gun at the edge of an open high window. I remember being shot, and then the hole in my forehead, then falling out the window - then I woke up with a start. The second time this happened, I had a sense of Deja Vu during the dream.I have also drowned in a dream. I was swimming towards the surface of the water but not fast enough, and drowned (thus woke up) mere centimetres away from the surface. I woke up gasping for breath, breathing quite quickly. Apparently I had been holding my breath during that dream.Point of all this is: It happens, and of course you don't die or become unable to wake up - it is just a dream. Doesn't affect real life.

I woke up paralyzed to a dark black mist entity and it left when I cried out Jesus's name? help,?

Hello, I am not a Christian. But 3 years ago when I was 17 or 18. I woke up paralyzed in the middle of the night to a dark mist expanding over the ceiling, it was so dark, I couldn't move or speak, it was getting close and close and I suddenly thought, "wait a minute, this is my body! Then got control over my body and cried out Jesus Christ! and it went swiftly went away through the ceiling, right after it left, a peace that I have never felt before fell over me, the only way I can explain the sense of peace that came over me is, like say a mother was holding her baby in her arms, the baby is truly at peace, being protected by the mother, was that dark mist a demon? I have never experienced anything like that ever since it happened 3 years ago. Also I am not crazy, I am a logically sound guy that is very factual but this situation has left me dumbfounded. Anyone's input would be much appreciated.
