Glancing every corner of my room,

As darkness swallowed it whole.

Body sleeping but my mind awake.

A voice suddenly spoke beside me.

Low, dark with malice.

Whipping my eyes,

There sat a dark figure.

Scared, wanting to make distance,

But my body frozen stiff.

Screaming, calling out for help

But even my voice was silence.

A crushing sense of paranoia

Silently screaming, pleading for my body to move.

Demonic laughter echoes the voiceless room

 Mocking my cries.

Resisting, hoping it dies.

Shutting my eyes close, 1  2 3 ,I open them.

Finally my body’s awake,

Sweat dripping,

Palm on my face as the sound of the clock ticking.

Glancing beside me, it wasn’t there.

It was a dream, a deadly one.
