Pandora – Charlene Trolinder




They stared at her with

inquisitive eyes.

She seemed so simple


submissive, but she

had this complicatedness about her.

Her mind’s thoughts and ideas would

terrify while inspiring.

A methodical empty need

to hide her needs, wants, and

desires made her the master of her own


She navigated a purposeful

overshadowing of her soul because

she knew her greatest ambitions would

be fulfilled while standing

in the shadows of a

broken heart. There was a

mystical almost divineness

about her that few could resist

intertwined with a darkness that could

destroy them.

Few were ever allowed into

the inner sanctums of her

being, for fear of being broken

for her secrets. As they stared with

fixated expressions of horror and

amazement, they spoke with cold

confused words, “Who are you?”

She turned slowly

toward them with

an emotionless face and

pain filled eyes and softly replied,

“I am your fears, misunderstanding, and

judgement. I am your thoughts that haunt

you. I am the darkness and light. I am

the beating heart of compassionate love, and

the broken mind of cruel rejection.” She

slowly grinned as she continued,

“I am your creation and

your monster. I am

what you made me!”

Charlene Trolinder aka Lorna Evol is a small town kid born and raised in Dumas, TX. She fought all her childhood to survive, born with a rare chromosomal disease. She attended West Texas A&M, where she obtained a Bachelor’s in Psychology. It was later in life that she realized she struggled with severe depression and anxiety. Each day is a battle, but she loves the simple things. She is an avid reader and animal lover. She draws her inspiration from her struggles, and she tries to give hope to others through her words.

Edited January 16, 2017:

Unfortunately someone has come onto this lovely piece to accuse Char aka Lorna Evol of plagiarism, and has done so using some of the vilest language. I have included the link to the original posting (2014) of Char’s poem Pandora, here.

      1. I am not bipolar, but my mental process has been deeply affected by my abuse, as well; I have not sought therapy, the word scares me or leaves me cold, thinking that the may be no improvement. You have gained such power through your illness, never let anyone tell you differently, I have felt it through your poetry.


    1. This is a guest appearance by a beautiful woman named Charlene. I often feature many amazing voices her on The Lithium Chronicles. I love being able to give others a small platform for their courageous and beautiful voices.

  1. You have 24 hours to remove this piece from this site, and your name from it! You know damn well you did not write this piece! It was written over four years ago, and I happen to be married to the woman that wrote it! Comply immediately or you will be brought up on charges of copyright infringement!

    How dare you use your “rare” disease bullshit to ride the laurels of truly talented people!

    How many other pieces did you steal? Dying or not…You are a really big piece of donkey shit!


    1. I have sent a message to the woman featured here who insisted that she wrote this. If you search the poem itself she is the only known author. Please tell me where I can find this piece written by your wife, if that is the case, I will of course remove this piece and publish a retraction in it’s place.

    2. While we wait for you to prove that this is indeed someone’s else’s copyrighted work, maybe you can explain the hostility? Is it necessary to say “dying or not, you really are a piece of donkey shit?”

      Dying or not.


      I can’t even fathom the cruelty of your words. Even if this was “stolen” (which I’m waiting for you to prove), I don’t think it’s necessary to spew the absolutely hateful bullshit at this time.

      Try saying this instead “hi, I’m pretty sure this was written by my wife, here is her website where it was posted. You can see the words are almost identical. Please remove from your website. thank you”

      1. I am at a loss for words right now to even respond to that hate. I was shaking through my initial response, trying to keep it as straight forward as possible. I am disgusted by his comment. Just WOW

    3. If you can’t back up your words you have no business posting them….it’s unbelievable to me the hate and discontent that resides within for you to make such hateful comments. Char is a beautiful writer and a beautiful soul…something you know nothing about. Take your bullshit somewhere else.

    4. Still awaiting proof of “theft” I see…smells like donkey shit to me! The fact that you have to attack someone and say the vile things you said, speaks more of your character than anyone else’s! Char, thank you for being such a beautiful, brave soul and sharing YOUR words with us all! Opening yourself up to be judged by the opinions of miserable souls like this guy isn’t for the feint of heart and I truly applaud you for that. Keep sharing your heart with the world! In the words of Dr. Seuss, “those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind, don’t matter.” We love you Char!

    5. Excuse me sir… Where is you or your wifes proof that this piece is copy righted? You have 24 hours to show us that or i will be speaking with an attorney in the morning for your slandering my sisters name and publically posting false accusations. I have already taken screen shots of your comment so deleting it will do you no good. Further more, my sister Charlene Trolinder has an army of people including myself who follow her personal written pieces, so you should probably prepare yourself for the war of words you just opened. Now normally i would not be so nice or even respectful, but beings if you dont prove this is not MY sisters original written piece I am serious about going to an attorney in the morning. NO ONE gets away with speaking to my sister like that. Thank you, KARA KAY TROLINDER. By the way sir I am the little sister.
