Last Night I dreamt Somebody loved me

Hello World

Most of you will know this work but not many know the story behind this portrait of a lonely soul.

From a time when trees touched the skies and the moon kept a watchful eye over the world; there lived a beast…

Many creatures inhabited this strange world but this was no ordinary creature, it was in the deep forest thousands of years ago where this soul first came to life.  With the force to rip a hole in the earth with one swoop the beast held such strength and power. However for all his might the beast suffered intensely from a great loneliness. Such a feeling swept over the beast like a vast plague, he was hopeless to it.

The only escape he found from such pain was to dream, dream so deeply into the night of love and happiness, something he feared he would never attain. The beast fell into a deep sleep every night without fail, his tentacles reaching out in anticipation for love. But the world of dreams can be a cunning friend, for nobody warned the beast not to fall into the delusion created by this state and that you may begin to forget all truth and certainty.

That was indeed what the beast did, he no longer knew what it was to live. He had forgotten the forest, the sweet sight of the moon shining down on him. His strength was taken from him to feed the deception of which he will never wake from.
