Let Sleeping Demons Lie

My heart races as I toss, turn, and kick away another night. If I do manage to fall asleep, the nightmare begins.

An invisible demon, throws me about. The pain so real, I think I may die. I know it is a dream, but I cannot wake. I try to run, every muscle straining as if I am weighed down. I try to scream; silent breath only escaping my lips. I think I wake, only to feel the invisible demon attack again, and I realize I am still dreaming.

So scared.

What if I never wake?

Repeating over and over until I am sure I will go mad.

I finally wake; my body, paralyzed. The pain from the dream still lingering. This pain is real, how is the demon not? No more sleep, I must keep the demon at bay. Lying still; afraid to breathe.

How do I get through the next three hours?

How do I get through the day, pretending my world is just as normal as yours?
