Last night I had a very strange experience waking up from dead sleep. I might have been having a dream perhaps but I don't have any recollecton of the dream.
Anyways, I woke up to see a long black (almost black, very very dark grey) 6 and a half foot tall humanoid-type creature looking intensly at me from my dresser about seven feet away from my feet. It was very slender, and had human like features, but not like an alien's. It's features were illuminated in light grey, such as it's cheeckbones, lips, the brows and underside of it's eyes, however it's eyes were black. It's eyes were pretty big, but not abnormally so. It seemed to be female. Either it has a very high forehead, or it was wearing a ponytail, but I saw no indication of hair. Whatever it is, it's kind of beautiful. Cheekbones were very defined. I wish I could describe it's body more, like whether or not it was wearing clothes, but I awoke to find myself looking directly at it's face.
Half asleep, I swiped my hand at it and said, "Just go away!" and blinked my eyes. The figure blurred after I blinked, but was still there so I blinked again and it was gone. I had a feeling of intense fear for a minute or two, and then just some unease before I went to the bathroom, and then back to bed (facing away from my dresser, sheets over my head) and fell back asleep.
Now normally, I feel as though the idea that a shadowy creature would simply be a figment of someone's imagination. Something fleeting seen out of the corner of one's eye. But this wasn't like that at all.
It was a creature that was very real. Like if I were to turn my head and look at anything, the reality of that thing was just as clear as this thing was. It would have been as tangible as waking up to find a burglar in your home, seeing another person, you know? It was there.
Now, this isn't the first time I've seen this thing. I've woken up to it's face looking right at me, laying side by side with me. Inches from my face, and groggily I would shoo it away with my hands and said something like, "Leave me alone, or go away". It is the same creature. Up close, it's substance is almost like static from a television, but it's almost completely black. Again, it's lips, cheeckbones, and the brows and undersides of the eyes are light grey (almost glowing, but not quite), it had black eyes. The eyes weren't static at all. The eyes are black.
The first experience I had with this thing I assumed that maybe I was waking up from some strange dream (except I had no recollection of the dream), but now that this has happened twice I'm not so sure. I feel as though if this were a dream, I would have had different sorts of visions, because blackish grey skinny-woman alien ghost thingies are generally not what I think or dream about.
I'm a bit worried about this creature. I've never seen shadows or glimses of it, and for the most part I feel at ease in my room. It seems very interested on both occasions to let me know it's watching pretty intently. Nothing is ever misplaced, or shakes, furniture going crazy or anything. It doesn't look angry, it doesn't look like it has any emotion at all. It just... looks.
Has anyone had similar experiences to things like this? Am I just seeing phosphenes in a dark room or something?
