Sleep Paralysis or Duplexity

Sleep but not deep
Mind awake but not complete
Control of muscles
Not in my control
Haunted and horrified
I feel paralysed
Try my best to open my eyes
Scream for help and move my hand
This terrorised immobility, I cannot understand .

I notice the doorknob rotating
Hear footsteps of someone prowling
Feel the touch of creepiness
Surveilling glance of sinisterness
See a devil floating around
In pool of fear, I get drowned
Someone unwanted in my room?
An intruder, I presume!

Pressure is on my chest and I'm strangled
My body smothered and my gullet throttled
Suffocated I am, as about to die
An unseen force, I spy
And suddenly appears a demon
Seized I am completely by the evil
He grasps and puts me in sack
Or is it incubus attack?

I spin, I fly
I fall, I glide
I hover up above myself
From my body, I feel expelled
I sense another set of body
Identical to mine virtually
This out of body experience
Is apparently consistent
With omnipresent and paranormal dualism
Divinely soul and body relation.
