For Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – First Line Friday
Someday, this will be over–
only remembered like some half-felt
and fading nightmare.
Will think your hope,
Hoping this misery to end.
Pulling you from one side,
And trying to enter you from the other,
Ripping your soul apart,
And making you cry in vain.
And then you realize-
You can’t move a limb,
Even if you want to run away.
No amount of screaming would be heard,
Though you would be screaming loud.
You will be confused;
you will be confined to bed.
You will sweat even when
The AC is on.
Darkness will prevail all around.
And then you will see ‘it’.
A who or a what or a thing?
Staring at you right into your eyes,
Likely to pounce upon you,
Might possess you or drink your blood.
You never know.
Just when you decide to succumb,
in a pull, you open your eyes.
You see no one.
Still confused and scared maybe,
You try to collect but nothing makes sense.
And then your solace will whisper-
this is all over–
and will only be remembered like
some half-felt and fading nightmare.

This whole event can be described as Sleep Paralysis. I don’t know how many of you have gone through this, I have. My heart shudders even now at just the thought of it. My husband has experienced it 2 times and till last week, this was only something that will never occur to me. But it did. I have tried to write down what I felt during the whole process, but trust me it was real scary !!
