Conversion Disorder

By Ryuu Bloodsplatter

I couldn’t speak
Say something!
Tell them what’s wrong!

I couldn’t move
Pick your feet up!
Don’t make them carry you!

My body was trembling
It hurts!
Stop hurting!

In and out I went
Where am I?
Who is touching me?

I was paralyzed
although there was nothing wrong

My mind had become a jail

Life was turning me into a prisoner

And my body had given up
