as I lie here, awake and afraid, i think.
My body can't move, I see them on top of my chest.
My heart racing as I try to move but I cannot.
My eyes open, my arms down, my brain working, but my body is not.
I feel like I'm getting swallowed up in my self.
Am I going to die?
As the frightening thought goes through my head, I'm awake, I can move, and I am free.
