A past of higher ground. - February 9th 2015, 07:41 PM

My attempt at trying to get out of writer's block. It's about dissociation.


Don't speak to me, I can't understand what you're saying.
I'm a player in the twisted game that my mind is playing.
I'm here yet too far gone to dare try and concentrate,
All that your presence will be able to do is to complicate
My ability to raise my rank at the end of this rough round.
It's everyone for themselves against their past of higher ground.
I can see your lips moving but I can't really hear your voice.
You're probably angry because you think this is my choice.
You getting farther away and I can barely see you now.
I'm losing more control than I would ever want to allow.
My past grips me tightly and it aches right to the bone.
It's trying to do me a favor by bringing me back home.
I'm not from the present, I'm a figure from long ago.
I'm from way back when and now it's time for me to go.
I have to go to back to where I have belonged all along.

Goodbye, farewell, so long.

WOW! I totally can relate to that! The whole 'can't understand what you're saying' and not being able to concentrate really describes dissociation. Great job

This is so beautiful! I especially love the line for which it's named.

This is written beautifully. I like how you wrote this and it's amazing as always. You described it really nicely as well and I can also relate this in a way.
