Creepy Stalker Dreams…or Sleeping Beauty

on January 30, 2013

I feel you, Johanna,
I feel you.
I was half convinced I’d waken,
Satisfied enough to dream you.
Happily I was mistaken,
I’ll steal you, Johanna,
I’ll steal you.

“Johanna” – Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street

I’ve had this song stuck in my head off and on all day.  I lovingly refer to it as “the creepy stalker song.”

Life has seemed rather dream-like lately.

I’m a newlywed, pursuing a rather taboo religious path, and I recently lost a friend.  It’s a bit too much for reality to bear right now.

So, my brain, being its normal weird self, thinks of Sweeney Todd.

A normal girl’s brain would go more this route:

But, if there’s anything you’ve learned, O My Brothers*, it’s that I am far from a “normal” girl.

I cope with things in odd ways, and so I’m far more scatterbrained than normal.

C’est la vie.


* Vague A Clockwork Orange reference.
