Poetry on Odyssey: Sleep Paralysis

Your eyes creek open

The room is pitch black

Absolutely devoid of light and yet your eyes adjust.

Everything seems to be normal

So you ask yourself why you're awake

You get your answer in your peripherals.


You spot something standing in the corner

A shadow, that begins to creep towards you.


You try to move, but you're pinned.

The shadow won't let you move or even scream.

Your eyes dart back and forth trying to ignore the threat

But you can't look away.

Your eyes glued to your encroaching doom.


It creeps closer and closer until you come face to face with it.

The thing is... it has no face, no eyes, no mouth, no skin.

It's just.... a shadow.


The terror grips you and you can feel your soul trembling

The shadow moves closer and speaks one word.

"Boo".
