Someone Wants To Kill Me
by Melanie Holmes
(Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia)
Most nights when I go to bed, usually about an hour later I wake up because I am convinced there is someone in the room, usually they come from the corner of the room, sometimes they come from the ceiling I can't describe them I don't even know if they actually are human, but one thing I am absolutely certain of is that they want to kill me. This leads me to jumping out of bed so quickly that I usually end up injuring myself somehow, one time I fell on the floor as I bounded out of bed and cracked my knee on the floor. My heart is pounding like I have just run a race and my fist instinct is to turn the light in and put my glasses on, because my vision is blurry without them and I feel I need to see clearly to see the person or thing that is in the room. It is about now that I start to realize that it is a dream and not real. I usually go back to sleep pretty quickly. Lately, these dreams have been recurring 2 to 3 times a night. When this happens, I have to sleep in the lounge because I am too scared to go back in the bedroom. I have found lately that leaving the light on seems to help, although this does seem to interrupt my sleep.
