Hallucination.


There is a malicious being in my room,
it looms behind my ear.
Its gentle breaths pound through my heart
and strike me with great fear.

Crouched beneath my bed, under covers lay,
my courage now resides.
If it's come to claim my soul,
I hope my conscience finds a good place to hide.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I used to get hallucinations from sleep paralysis because I was so stressed. It made me terrified of sleeping, which just acerbated the problem. To anyone else who has had or still has sleep paralysis episodes or hallucinations from other causes, my heart goes out to you. To anyone else who never has, I pray you see reason to be thankful, and I hope you never have to experience it. I don't wish sp hallucinations on anyone.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
