They Are Not Human

by John Heaton
(Edmonton, Alberta)

I woke up wrestling with this creature. It was extremely strong and fast, stronger than a human. It tried to cut off my air supply. Trying to yell for help, I could only croak. It was terrifying. You can see various artist's depictions of these things on the Internet. Some of them look human but they are not. A human is no match.

As I have narcolepsy I am plagued by hypnopompic hallucinations too. The hallucinations are disturbing, but not usually terrifying.

I am a retired man.
