In the darkness
and in the light
trauma is my
constant companion.
The cause varies,
wars, accidents, fires, etc.
All have a common result,
I stick to it
like a fly on fly paper.
I can see reality
and fight to return
but trauma holds me,
always apart, teased
with the vision of normalcy.
The greatest pain
is seeing real life so close
you can reach out and touch
it but trauma keeps
you isolated, in a separate world,
an alternate reality,
destined to relive your horrors
over and over.
Stuck, with no escape,
doomed to that circle
of pain, my alternatives
are few and dismal, both
for me and those who love me.
Being stuck or being free
is the decision..
