#Poem at night: Dark Knights

This poem is the start of a series of poems I have written since 2011 called “My lost Souls”. They work through the experience of dissociation one of the mechanisms that humans experience when going through the aftermath of traumatic experiences.

Not everybody dissociates but I do. Dissociation means a feeling of not being in ones body or someone else taking over. In extreme cases it can change into a personality disorder and at times I have wondered if I am living with DID.

Dark Knights

Dark knights
came at night.

Their fiery
swords
slew my
first soul.

They came
again
and
again.

Night
by
Night.

I lost
soul
after
soul.

Their
desolate
shadows
linger
in the
back
of my
dreams

where
dark knights
come
night after night!
