Question: Will You Rate and Suggest A Title for My Poem!?
As sleep trips into night
and darkness consumes my eyes
I fight to stay awake
and sleep and awake intwine

My body is glued to the bed
My arms are stuck to my sides
A chorus whispers in my ear
and my sanity has lost its guide

I feel this paranoia grasp me
as a hand grabs at my neck
and I fight to lift my arms to pull away
or at least to fight back

My heart begins to skip a beat
as I attempt to open my eyes
but this hand smacks me across the face
and now I am blind

A nausea overcomes me
and the hand filters my scream
and the music blares louder
and enables me to dream

And then suddenly it stops
and I tremble in fear
waiting for my paralysis to come back
and the music to reappearWww@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
My favorite poet always informs the readers that she doesn't name poetry, because it would be trying to describe a color to a blind person!. She always says that the title is up to the reader and if the reader likes it enough they make their own title!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

This is a very different slant on the process of going to sleep!. It is like a battle rages against an action that is supposed to give a body rest!. Unlike the battle to fall asleep (insomnia) - this writer feels helpless and fights - what is supposed to be - a natural process!. Suggestion: Your meter needs more work - it is really rough in spots!. Here's a link - to help you with your count: ?


Edit: Maybe the title should be "Sleep Paralysis" - as you stated!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
