Trauma Strikes,

Like the blade of a knife,

Splintering deep through your core!

Disconnecting your soul,

Removing control,

Self broken, in bits, on the floor!

The black cloud; excessive,

Weighty, aggressive,

Limbs hanging heavy like lead,

Contorted in pain,

Shards rip through each vein,

And You’re wishing to God, you were dead!

A barren mind forsakes you,

As the emptiness takes you,

The demons gnaw at your heart,

Your lungs are defective,

Air being rejected,

Your world & your soul torn apart!

Grappling for an exit,

Defeated, Dejected

Cover is your only hope now,

Your spirit is kicking,

Inner voice - not for quitting,

Screaming ‘Get up & fight back some how!

Then PAUSE ! A safe distance,

No longer resistance,

The world being viewed from afar,

You can’t interact,

In the nothing, you’re trapped

Numb silence, is a welcomed bizarre!
