As I have said in my other stories, I have had experiences since I was younger. I have tried to block them out for a long time, but I have finally just accepted that they happen. However, none of my experiences have actually been truly negative until about a week ago.
I was lying in my bed trying to sleep. The house I was staying at was a parsonage by the church where my father preaches. It is in a heavily wooded area, but the only animals we typically see are deer, rabbits, and foxes. We do not stay there all the time, just when events are going out at the church.
There is a graveyard just past the house that is as old as the rural community that the church is in. I spend a lot of time out there reading and cleaning up the grave markers that sometimes have grass or leaves covering them. It is a very peaceful place. A lot of flowers grow there and there are always butterflies and humming birds flying around.
Anyway back to what I was saying, I was trying to sleep. It was fairly quiet. I could hear my dad snoring, but that was all.
I began to feel afraid. It was like something else was in my room with me that was not supposed to be. I felt a weight at the foot of my bed. I sat up slightly and saw a formless shadow. I could not tell what it was, and unlike the winged being I saw, this thing made me feel absolutely terrified. Suddenly, I could not see or breathe. I groped around for my lamp, praying that God would keep me safe from this thing. I finally got my lamp and turned it on. The bulb in it is not very strong, but it was enough so that I could see the shadow back off.
I couldn't see it very well anymore, but I knew it was still there. I could feel it was still there. I kept my light on for the rest of the night and finally fell asleep once the sun started to come up.
I just want to know what it was and why it held so much negativity. Like I have said, I have never dealt with anything like it before, and I haven't since, so far. I would really appreciate anything anyone might be able to say.
