Sleep paralysis

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