Dead in Sleep.

In the midst of a REM

I’m caught between sleep

And wakefulness.

With half-open eyes 

I’m looking into my next life.

A presence behind me

Is missing when I wake.

I try to call out to him for help

But my voice is dead

My limbs are tied

And when I shout, 

All that comes out is croaks

In a frog’s language.

Heavy heartbeats pound the chest

And soon I am awake

I look around and there’s noone there.
