Pinned Down

PTSD in Dreams
PTSD in Dreams | Source

I awake frozen unable to move

Scared stiff - you have just whispered in my ear

My name, a threat, even a caress

Chills, Panic, Unable to breathe, FEAR

You have me pinned down.

What's next - Kill or caress

Trying to move on, I've let you win

Why is my life still a mess

Abusive nightmares prove too much

Fearfulness lays just under the surface

Sweet caress, A loving touch

These I don't understand......


Scared stiff

Are they fantasies I wish were true

Or lost memories from so long ago?

Too little, Too late, Too few

Trauma, Fear, Hurt over Rule.
