a monster is in my dreams. Is it an image in a dream?, is it a warning?, is it in my room right now?

My Dreams.

The ghoul.

I’m lying on a four poster bed in a dark room. I lie awake, I can hear a shuffling behind the closed bedroom door. The door is slowly pushed open and I see a large skeletal hand with long sharp yellow nails. My breath starts to quicken and my heart rate doubles. My eyes are wide with horror as I watch the bedroom door edge inch by inch ,open. At last I can see the intruder, they are wearing long black drapes, their face covered. I hear their breathing, slow rattling as though of a snake waiting to capture its prey. I can’t move, even though I want too, the appearance of the creature has paralysed me, I can’t even scream out for help. The creature comes to the bottom of my bed, it places its hands on the wooden frame but seconds later it on the move. It nails scrape loudly as it makes for my side of the bed. The only light coming into the room is from the nearby window but the creature moves in front of it and the room falls into eternal darkness. I feel its breath on my face, hot and smelly. Its hands move to my face and tickles my cheek but seconds later the tickle turns to a long scratch and from the darkness I feel hot stinging pain. Then for my last moments all I hear is a violent snarl then ……I wake up, the room is still dark, my mind replaying the last moments in the dream quickens my heart. I tell myself its not real but I cant get the sounds nor the feelings out of my head then suddenly I hear a creak, on the farside of the room. ITS here!!!!!!!!!!
