day by day, i am a marionette, performing with a gleaming smile.
my arms move up, my arms move down.. with my fashionable, whimsical flair.
the tyrants enjoy my talent. the other minions look up to me, in order to keep sane.
i dance, i sing, and make them laugh.
they do not see a sign of melancholia.
then i come home, to my sanctuary, to my cozy corner, where my easel and paints are.
to where my fuzzy, black aliens cuddle up against me.
to where the music soothes me.
with a dreamy expression, jade-green eyes, and beating heart, i paint, and escape into a fantasy world.
in this world, i am flying.
i feel him caressing my soft skin, in the midst of my brushing of this pale soul.. onto gratifying surfaces.
i travel to the unconscious place. he remains within me, so that i may dream happily.

Symbolically, the world is the realm in which a state of existence is
unfolded (25), comprising many component parts adhering together. Used in the
plural, the term pertains, in a sense, to space-symbolism, but the ‘worlds’ are
really only different modes of the spirit (26). The explanation of the cosmic and
moral significance of the three worlds (the infernal, the terrestrial and the celestial) is to be sought in the symbolism of level. The inferior must not always be
equated with the subterranean, for, in megalithic cultures, the latter was usually
located high up, or in the hollow interior of mountains (conceived as the dwellingplace of the dead). Guénon has pointed out that references to the ‘subterranean
world’ are found in a large number of cultural traditions, in which the ‘cult of the
cavern’ or cave is linked with that of the ‘centre’. One must also bear in mind the
equation of the cavern with the cave of the heart, the latter being considered as the
Centre of being or the Egg of the World (28).

Skin is associated with the ideas of birth and rebirth. In the Egyptian
system of hieroglyphs there is a determinative sign comprising three skins knotted together, signifying ‘to be born’; it comes into the composition of words such
as ‘to engender’, ‘to bring up’, ‘child’, ‘to form’. The amulet which the Egyptians used to present to the newly-born comprised, like the hieroglyph, three animal
pelts which were attached to a solar globe. The number of the skins here refers to
the essentially threefold nature of the human being—the body, the soul and the
spirit—while the globe denotes his incorporation into the All. The symbolism of
skin is borne out by the rite known as ‘the passage through the skin’ which
pharaohs and priests used to carry out in order to rejuvenate themselves; this rite
was later replaced by a simulacrum, and then latterly it became just a panther’s
tail which kings wore knotted round their waist. This notion that an individual
may assume the characteristics of an animal, with its totemic implications, also
comes into skin-symbolism (19). There is a basic analogy here with the sacrificial
rite once practised by the priests of pre-Columbian Mexico in which human
victims were clad in skins; similarly with the wearing of skins by the bearers of
the signum in Roman legions.

To dream that your skin is different color, suggests that you are not being true to yourself. Look up the specific color for additional meaning.

Alternatively, it may be a sign of sickness. Perhaps a call to the doctor is in order.
