Sleep Paralysis – March 10, 2019

Did you ever talk about it?

I was scared to ask about it.

It turned into the forbidden fruit,

I was not tempted,

Or brave,

Or I didn’t want to know the truth.

It hurt too bad.

I pretended you were fine, as I pushed you away.

Instinct took hold, sheltering my breaking heart.

I wrapped my arms around.

Brick by brick, moment after stinging moment.

My wall climbed higher, I loved you so deeply.

I begged, with my heart, for someone to take pity.

Then I woke up, and you’d been gone for twenty-eight years.
