ParaInsomnia (A Poem)

There is too much air in my chest

And not enough in my lungs

I stumble, reset, refocus

There are faces in the dark

With wisps of smoke for hands

That reach for me

My mouth opens to scream

And scream and scream but

No one hears a thing

I stumble to find the switch

For light that floods the room

Stumble, reset, refocus

  2. This is a very scary experience that you’ve written quite excellently, KaylaAnn. I experienced it once, and I was so afraid, I thought I was going to die.
