You have no control over me,
I am not real, though sometimes you believe me,
I come back every night, but am often forgotten,
Though left alone, I will never become rotten,
Sometimes I remind you of things yet to come,
Sometimes, watching me, you do things you've never done,
I rarely ever turn out to be true,
Now I am done with this riddle for you.

What am I?

Its funny because I thought it was the boogy man. I have had dreams that has come true some good some bad but they have happened. The ones that I have forgotten has come true but it is more like when it does I say to myself have I done this before or I get that feeling of dejavou.

WOW...nice. I've had some trippy dreams where a deseased relative would appear in a dream to tell me everything will/would be ok, 10 days later dianosed w/Cancer & thankfully, so far no return!!!!! Explain that one!! And was it Freud that said WE are all charactors in our DREAMS???!!! Not a fan of him, anyway.

That was good, I thought of dream the very first line. But very well written out, I'm a writter and I have to say, I couldn't think of that. Good job

I was thinking about quiting Braingle but this one, this morning gets me hot!
"I rarely ever turn out to be true"
Why do you have to send a message of hoplessness?!
Dreams are the most fascinating element of my life!
They help me to make sense of the world!
Yeah! I knew something big was going to happen when the tsunami hit last year!!!

Very Clever. Kinda easy though. Sometimes i can control my dreams though.

Oct 17, 2005

Way too easy!!! Don't make sonething so general, I know there are a lot of us that predict things and learn about the past through our dreams! I found that kind of insulting!
Brainy_1Aus*
Oct 17, 2005

I love this teaser!! I got it by the second sentence and yes it was easy but it is a good one!!!! Great job!!

Oct 17, 2005

Hey that was fun! I got it right away. Cool! Has any one ever had reacurring dreams? Or woke up in the middle of one then went back to sleep & picked up where you left off? I have.
solidgordy*
Oct 17, 2005

gOSH, I must be a grump; I got it, but I think some of the clues could have been better. Maybe you had to sacrifice some clarity for rhyming words. Like the line about you can leave me alone but I never go rotten... That just doesn't seem relevant, although technically it may be true. That was the one line I thought could maybe be improved or replaced, but good work, I appreciate the thought that went into it!

Heehee, I had to think about it all day but finally it clicked in my brain... just as the answer was loading on the page. Nice teaser!

You have no control over me,

Look up lucid dreaming; dreams are controlable

I come back every night,

You don't dream every night; in fact, most people only dream a couple times a week.

I rarely ever turn out to be true

Dream interpritatoin tends to be quite acurate, though I will say that dreams rarely are what they mean.

This teaser is very good. To be honest Dreams that I have I remember them and yes sometimes what I dream does come true. I usually remember my dreams. I dream every night. When I wake in the mornings I recall them.
Kudos to you this is a great Teaser!!!!!!!!!1

So it was easy...it was also cleverly written, fun and a teaser!!! It's nice sometimes, to not have to do research or be a rocket scientist to get a riddle. Kudos to Emily.

Extremely easy. I had it by the 3rd line. Make it harder next time, then it would be fun.
smilingpatienceAus*
Oct 17, 2005

Wow, that was SO easy, got it after the second line. However, I doubted myself a bit because I didn't think that it could come that easily. Good job with that .

I was pleased to see that I could get this one; I made a mad guess at dream & got lucky.
Good one.

Oct 17, 2005

I like this! I added it to my favorites...I like the riddler "poetry" best, and the answer is a little mystical. Dreams are our greatest escape- we can do anything, we can be anything. Dreams reveal who we are! Excellet riddle. Keep it up!

Hehe cool. A lot of my dreams come true.
emily103**
Mar 05, 2006

some of mine do, but mostly don't...
emily103**
Jan 20, 2007

yeah by now i think only three of my dreams came true or close to true

also i am basing this on my dreams because i don't really know about anybody else's (i don't run a dream collection box or anything crazy like that)...
and i'm not exactly a very good riddle-maker (although when i'm in the mood i can be pretty good at poetry) so don't expect any like 4.0 difficulty teasers...
anyway... probably won't see any action from me for a while so bye

Fun riddle, a little too easy though. Actually there have been some rotten dreams, and some repeat.
auntiesisAus*
Oct 17, 2008

Very well done, Emily. I thought it was rather easy, but that is because I just had a very vivid dream. Time for another one.

Dreams are complicated things, there are only theories about them. but it is true that everyone dreams every. Most dreams go unnoticed though and are forgotten. You usually have many dreams in one night.

Good teaser.

Though I had it figured out in the first line or two, I liked it. Well written and great explanation of the entire poem for anyone who may not have understood it. Good Job.

My DREAM would be to see some new teasers. A for MI & Ct
gaylewolfAus*

Well written teaser! This was an easy one, but a good one! I noticed how many people commented back in 2005. Where is everyone now? Dear friends, K and T - may all your dreams come true!

"Are you a dream Merlin?" -- Arthur

"A Dream to some.
A NIGHTMARE TO OTHERS!" -- Merlin

One of my all time favorite movie lines.
From the movie Excalibur.
auntiesisAus*
Oct 19, 2011

I noticed what Gayle wrote, where are all the people from 2005. They have probably given up because of too many repeats. I wish I were clever enough to come up with some new ones, but , alas, I am not.
Hi to people in Mi & Pa. Have a good day.

I am sure someone has mentioned it already in the thread, but LUCID DREAMING is all about controlling your dreams. It is a real thing. You grasp hold of the fact that you are dreaming then you can consciously manipulate what happens.

Inception's Blu-Ray had a nice piece about it.

That being said, the WHOLE teaser is false.
Mathgeek007tca*
Oct 19, 2011

You cannot pick what your dream is going to be.

People often control dreams through thought.

Though they are not real, when you are asleep it seems real.

True... Sometimes.

You have a dream every night, but most people forget them.

Again, this is true.

No one ever bothers, visits, or takes care of dreams (of course not, you can't!) but they don't get rotten (they're intangible, so how could they?)

It's called a nightmare. Fail at controlling a dream can become horrible.

Sometimes, if an important event is coming up, you will have a dream about it.
In dreams, you may do impossible things.
The events in dreams rarely happen.

After reading it over a couple of times I got it and I think it was a good teaser. I criticize when I don't like it so will compliment when I do. Isn't that what comments are for anyhow??
Mandy7us*
Oct 21, 2011

that riddle was good. i like dreams. usually i dream what will happen. then i scare my sister and say i can predict the future. my friends and i have fun with that. what's scary, it's true. i once dreamed my sister opened a gift she got in china, and when i woke up, i found out she actually did open it up, just like i dreamed it. scary
eighsseAus*
Aug 18, 2013

I liked this one, it was fun and easy
But...I have one nitpick, and one serious issue with it.
Nitpick: Some people can control their dreams to some extent (lucid dreams).
Serious issue: "Though left alone, I will never become rotten"??? Although it is in fact "true"...how does this apply to dreams in a realistic way, at all? Very random and irrelevant line.
