Sleep paralysis / ego trap / what

in escape •  3 years ago 

Attempts to raise my arm
just couldn't move it
Tried to move my eyes
but I couldn't do it
Stuck in between and
only words to prove it

This shit is called sleep paralysis
I've luckily never had it
But my ex girlfriend had it
so I wrote a poem about it

I woke up this morning but I didn't wake up
Just lying paralyzed on my back in the bed
Like clinically dead but alive in my head
I recalled a trippy article I've read
About DMT molecules getting stuck in the thread

A loop iterating like a Mandelbrot-set
Causing the consciousness to disconnect
Sending signals to the neurotransmitters that the neurotransmitters don't get
Thought maybe I was getting punished by a god I had never met
I soon concluded that was way too far out to accept
So finally I somehow managed to recollect
The mind-body/body-mind connection happened to reconnect
Body-mind: check - mind-body: check check

My advice, you know though it wasn't actually me that had this, the advice is:
While you're awake -
learn to meditate

Before it's too late
Because you can get stuck in that shit for days
And not occasionally stuck like trapped in a maze
No, more like trapped in a trap behind your face

The ego takes up so much space
And what kind of space
The ego is just a function
in the brain

You need to know that to escape

Nice. The book I'm working on was inspired by sleep paralysis as well. Not fun, but very interesting and can be a source of inspiration and creativity.
