Sonnet 300.6 – Depersonalization / Derealization Disorder



It always seemed special to be alone

At the movies and feel that heightened sense

Of having a part in tales not my own,

But bearing truth for me in their pretense.

Somehow that experience of being

An audience of one has followed me

Out of the theatre, onto the screen

Of my life, into my reality

Experienced as a flat projection

Of actions and characters familiar

That have made my existence a fiction

And turned keen self awareness to a blur.

In spite of myself, I know that you are,

But what am I?  Not so sure any more.
