In the Turbulent Night

Arms
and
legs

twisted
in
the
turbulent
night

penetrate
& bruise

till the
center
implodes

and
silence.

  1. That’s lovely Rob — and the image is perfect for it. Sometimes I awake with only vague hints of a number of dreams that tumbled by too quickly for me to remember. That image makes me think of that feeling.
    Hugs on the wing.

    1. The Turbulent Night happened a long time ago. One day the part of me that still lives it will be free. I’m working on it. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you gremlin in the wall. Thank you for your good thoughts and support, Sue. I hope you have a great holiday!

  3. It’s so weird to “Like” something that I dislike so much (what you and others like you were put through) but I know you know what it means. That and how well you convey it. xxx

    1. Thank you. It’s funny, I can be open about the concept of having a dissociative disorder but still struggle to understand the everyday business of seeing something I don’t remember doing. When I called my Aunt and she used the name “Robby” it had the effect of calling the child alternate that has that name. I did not know that he could write. Thank you for reading and leaving a comment. I do know the feeling of conflict when I read a painful piece that I like as a piece of writing. “like” seems so awkward.

      1. It’s odd, yes. I have experienced that “switch” that can be caused just by using a specific name, both on the receiving end and doing it for someone else. I can imagine yours to be a deeper sort of switch. Have you ever tried hypnosis? I haven’t, though someone tried once (unsuccessfully), but I’ve always been curious about it. Your case would seem to me to be an interesting candidate for it (though I feel you’d have to feel you trust the person hypnotising you completely).

      2. What I’m doing here is a huge part of my therapy.

        The writing of the Loleeta stories is a big step for me. That work has always terrified me. I didn’t understand it and found the dark sexuality disturbing and alien.

        I am more integrated now than I’ve ever been because the alternates use Second Life to collaborate on staging the illustrations for the different works. The alternates that wrote the story usually select or build the props.
