Sleep paralysis
angrychick

Relaxing deep, as the fall of sleep
 1
lulls my mind to natural meditative state.
 2
The fall begins;
 3
Alice enters wonderland.
 4
 
 
Fear darkens the night,
 5
terror controls my body,
 6
heavy limbs lose mobility;
 7
forced down by invisible entity.
 8
 
 
I am not dreaming,
 9
my body has been possessed.
 10
No screams are heard
 11
as my voice has lost her liberties.
 12
 
 
I summon all strength;
 13
adrenalin releases my little finger,
 14
allows a weak flinch
 15
but the spirit's grip won't set me free.
 16
 
 
I fight, as a mother giving birth summons
 17
every last drop of strength to give
 18
that final push. I escape supernatural fingers
 19
and scream as loud as a newborn.
