Have You Ever!?

Have you ever felt a hand

go through you hair

and when you opened your eyes

there was no one there!?

============

Have you ever awoke

and there was

a menacing

tall dark figure

at the end

of your bed!?

You can’t move a muscle

you can’t scream in fear

frozen in bed

of the dread!

============

Have you ever

again seen that

Tall Dark Menacing Man!?

But this time

flew out of bed

wrestled and fought back

but really … ouch …

just hit your head

on the nightstand

next to your bed!?

============

NO! YOU SAY!!

Well ………

What a boring life you’ve had … by the way!!!

============

And why does it always seem to be between 3:00 and 4:00am … again by the way!?

So the Lord’s Prayer I now do say!

  1. A couple of times, I woke up I believe around those same hours.
    The first one, a girl with long black hair was crawling from my foot up while making a harrowing laugh. It laughed harder as I tried to scream but no voice came out. I couldn’t move. I woke up the moment it reached my neck.

    Second time, I woke up and looked around. It was strange. It felt like I was woken up by something or someone. Suddenly, my pillow moved on its own and tried to kill me by covering my face. I woke up for real and gave my pillow a clean punch.

    Sleep paralysis is a hell of a thing.

    1. Christ was said to have been crucified around 3:00pm … So 3:00am has become known as the Devil’s Mark, Anti-Hour, witching hour, etc.

      In horror movies and such, a hapless person will wake up and look at a clock and the time will inevitably be around 3am. And then there will be your typical ‘bump in the night’ fright moment!
