Poetry about Disassociation

wpid-Screenshot_2013-06-05-05-39-021.jpg

Left alone, isolated in a closet

Though tears stopped one day, later

She hated her, and she knew it

Resentment she felt it deep

Having another child, God help her

But her friends merely laughed

That’s life, buck up!

Hush secrets, please, lock and keep

Loneliness bequeathed the child with friendship

And, she still hides in the closet

Come out little girl!

The angel wiped her tears

She was three or four

Angel lends gifts graciously handing                                                                                                        

Paper and pen the tools she needed

Love them, hold them, use them

Everyday while in that dark room

With Isolation her master

It taught mind escaping from that dungeon 

It showed her how to

Travel to Egypt, Israel and Istanbul

Transportation provided by Isolation and Despair

Appropriate names for them

And disassociation is wrong, so say they

They who’ve not felt walls collapse on psyches

The mind is a magnificent creator

God incarnate gave provisions

To those wayfaring life within a closet

And, may I add, mind adventures are not so bad

Learn the lesson and teach one another

On Islands, inside caverns she sits waiting

Departing the darkness of a closet

Propelling the down trotted 

And imagination transports her

She flies somewhere else and is on her away

  1. Thank you for sharing. I enjoy your style. – I noticed there is a copyright key that we can use in the compose/edit window. Mentioning it in case you haven’t seen it as you might find it helpful. I am still unhappy about the blogger who reposted my article the way she did here on facebook.

    1. Laurie, I don’t see the copyright key. Maybe I’m overlooking. If you have a moment to spare would you please explain a little more about how to find it?
