and that thing i"m talking about is not a nightmare
i can sleep because of that
The dictionary begs to differ...
a terrifying dream in which the dreamer experiences feelings of helplessness, extreme anxiety, sorrow, etc.
a condition, thought, or experience suggestive of a nightmare: the nightmare of his years in prison.
(formerly) a monster or evil spirit believed to oppress persons during sleep.
I don't see anything about waking up there...
But I did have this one nightmare, when I was really young. I was looking at these pots for plants, but it was in the middle of the desert, and it was the only building that I could see. Everything beyond 10 meters of the building was in very bright light. And for some reason I was wearing an overly-elaborate dress.
I was walking around the building and I threw a doll into the air, and was dragged through the ground, into a sort of den, with furniture and a fireplace.
To the left was a giant worm, with massive blood-red eyes. To the right were my best friends, who all had no eyes. I tried to escape but I could get out, and the worm-thing struck and then I couldn't seen anything for a moment.
The last thing I saw was the doll, on the ground, with blood-red eyes.
NOTE: That's the worst typical nightmare I've had, this is not counting the night terrors I had, which were easily a thousand fold worse.

OK, so one day, I just got home from school, and my mom was at my dads house with my little brother and sister. Then suddenly, people came out of nowhere and started shooting fith full-auto guns. we ran down the driveway to an old house and hid. Soon after, the people came to the house and started looking for us. I heard shooting in the next room over, the room with my mom and two sisters. My brother was hiding with me in some stacks of boxes. He started to cry and he crawled out of the box pile. I tried to call him, but he wouldnt listen... I looked out at him from the box pile and one of the people walked up to him. The person looked like a kid from my school. He put an evil smirk on his face... Put the gun to my 1 year brother... And... You know the rest. It breaks me to even think about it, let alone tell it to people...
