This post is unsettling on multiple levels. And, the plight of those suffering from the condition is brilliantly captured.
People who have experienced sleep paralysis know how twisted and horrifying it can be. During such an episode a person is mentally conscious but they are unable to speak or talk. The worst part in some cases are the hallucinations that people experience initially. Trapped in a conscious dream-like state can be very scary and several artists have captured this tricky condition with perfection. You'd be surprised and spooked out after going through the different versions of sleep paralysis.
It's a trick.
Staying awake is not the solution.
It's so hard to wake yourself up.
It can take any form and shape.
This is what it is.
There's no escaping this.
According to the artist, it is a manifestation of her inner issues and fear.
You can't even pretend to be asleep.
It's not that easy to let the weight off.
The worst part is remembering every detail.
This is how the artist feels.
It's just a phase.
And panic sets in.
This is the exact replica of what the victim saw.

It's a scary puzzle!
The fear is real.
They take you by surprise every time.
You have to experience it to understand the feeling.
This is a very tough situation to handle all by yourself.
The question you keep asking yourself until it gets over.

You can never prepare yourself enough for this.
Don't give into it.
