There’s nothing there . . .
The night plays tricks with my head. I forget if I’m asleep or not. Despite the potential for fright and horror, most confusion can be diffused with logic. Plants, animals, landscapes, or people, don’t generally appear in your bedroom without warning. Depending on one’s state of trepidation, such appearances needn’t chill you to the very core. For me, they tend to function as puzzles, demanding solution. On rare occasions the visitations can be accompanied by paralysis, like a classic incubus or succubus encounter. The experience needn’t be terrifying, but it can be quite disorienting.
touch me without touching me show me you’re real
