Sleep paralysis

In silence of night
Comes a peaceful fight
Movement of cockroaches
I sense it approach

On my back I rest,
Through unending night
Evils of earth emerge
My body they charge

My speech they impede,
Scary it feels so weird
They compete with my soul
Pressing my breathe to bed

I pray someone touch me
For dreams have refused to end
Here lies my able body
Seemingly like vegetable

Wide mouth shows my epiglottis
In states of sleep paralysis;
But no one hears my voice
No one sees my motion.

    I think there’s something more in this poem. Deep in it but anyway I often get sleep paralysis before but not anymore.
