When I close my eyes, I see black with hints of red, depending on lighting. Sometimes I rub my eyes
and the colors change to basically any color they decide to. I see patterns and swirls, sometimes even
images form. Sometimes it looks like colorful "white noise". It also happens when the room I'm in is pitch black.
Even as a little kid, I remember closing my eyes to go to sleep, but having trouble getting to sleep instantly
because of all the patterns distracting me. What I mean is that I see the inside of my lids, but for some
reason I see colors rather than just darkness.
I described this to multiple people and all of them responded with "Wha?" or "No...", and its so
annoying! I know some person out their sees this as well, maybe I'm just paying too much attention. I came to
notice that right before I LD'd each time I always saw a distinct swirl of burgundy, and I know I'm about to enter a dream.
What I'm getting to is, am I alone? What do you see behind your eyelids?
