Sleep deprived and full of poetry


I heard him cry for her
a desperate plea for help
filled with terror
with the mind awake 
and the body still slumbering
I heard him cry for her 
demon upon his chest
I heard him cry

I wrote this a couple weeks back. I suffer from sleep paralysis and so does my father. One night I was lying down trying to sleep and I her my dad cry out my mom's name, he sounded so scared. And I know from experience it a truly terrifying thing.
