I drew the picture myself to best illustrate what it is that I am seeing; the link is above. When I wake up, I see this thing (I saw it this morning, and a few consecutive mornings before as well). I say thing, because upon further reflection it does not exactly resemble a human being. It's over 6 feet tall, so quite tall, and stands beside my dresser in my room. Whenever I wake up, I see this thing...and get freaked out. It's usually dark in my room. I always prop a desk against my door at night, so that I can hear the door bang against it if someone tries to get in. The desk stays put; so whatever I am seeing is clearly not real. It hovers over me from beside my bed. I get scared thinking it's going to smother me, or hurt me... This is the only thing I can see till my eyes adjust; and no there is nothing else there which could 'appear' to be the shape of this thing. It has a weird 3 pointy type head, and arms that are not really arms but are more like stretched out darkness. All of the figure is dark. There is no distinct face, no distinct arms; like humans have. But once I have seen what appeared to be eye like regions; only that was vague as well, nothing distinct...just a color difference in that region of the face. It's just a huge figure, where the head is smaller and some arm like limbs stretch out...and the rest of the body drapes down, like a cape. Not sure how else to describe it. But it's disturbing, and has happened more than once, twice even... that I awake and see this beside me. It's happened, probably many many times now that I think about it, but sometimes it's further away in the room... And in those moments I somehow manage to get out of bed and stumble through the darkness putting my arms out; as if to determine when I am near it (fearing that my hands will hit something solid to prove it really does exist)...but I walk through, and go to the light switch and turn on the lights. This is not a dream. I know that...I am awake when I see it... I don't really have anyone I can tell this to. I really miss my friend right now; I really wish he could come and make me comfortable...take away my fears; especially in moments like this. P.S. I am not sure if anyone has ever read up on Djinn, or Jinn; but I think it may be that; I thought today after seeing it for a long time, that it appears more like one of the Djinn than anything else I can compare it to. That, or my mind is fabricating something to appear this way; and I am just trying to convince myself of something here, no idea to make myself feel better. It's not working.
