What it is like to live with dissociative identity disorder

Shattered glass

The mirror lies

To many mistakes

Not enough alibi’s

Who are these people

Staring at me

I close my eyes

I don’t want to see

I am, you are, we are the same

One personality becomes another

The world shakes in light of the storm

I want to cry out for my mother

She can’t help,

She wouldn’t even try

She is half the reason

Inside I die

Split in two, then three

Next comes four

Who are these people

Knocking at my mind’s door

Help me now,

What can I do

Inside has gone from quiet

To living in a zoo

This is me, my life but theirs also

Forever to share one space

Looking in the mirror, who is that face
