paranormal hallucinations

As I got up around midnight and looked at the wall opposite my bed, I saw a shadow intently staring into the room through the open window behind me. It didn't budge even as I opened my eyes and looked straight at it, and this was unusual. I closed my eyes, and as I opened them a moment later, the shadow was slowly moving away from the window.

I could feel its presence in the house, even before the little noise in the kitchen or the slow closing of the balcony door. In my mind I had already anticipated all of these, perhaps that's the reason they were happening in the first place. There was fear around, as if this was just the beginning. Or maybe I was just hallucinating from the effects of coffee.

I slept and woke up, over and over again. A sound here, a step here through the night, but nothing happened. Soon it was morning and I woke up with the sunlight filtering through the same window, sans any unusual shadow.


  1. Really spooky man. You got me scared at the middle of the night. Beautifully written :)

    Hope you enjoy reading my post too -
    To hold you in my arms, to promise you my love!

  2. Spooked me out. That's why I hate sleeping alone!

  3. It was certainly not the intent to spook! Am sure it was just a dream, I do not quite believe much in paranormal and such...

    Bad sleep is all I can blame :(

    p.s. I guess it would be so much more fun if you are not alone, something like "Paranormal Activity'!

  4. Hey Siddhartha..this post reminds me of Paranormal Activity..Gosh! its sacry..But nicely be very frank I was expecting a bit more..some more " horror stuff" .May be next time someone talks to
