"I can sum up everything I've learned about life in three words; it goes on." -Robert Frost


laying in bed
sweat plastering your pajamas
to your skin.
staring at the ceiling,
lightning scares the shadow sholiders away.
your finally alone.
but-
FLASH!
now your on the front line
awaitng a bullet to the head.
running over dead men,
both yours
and theirs.
FLASH!
now your back
in your room
gasping for breath.
FLASH!
Now your back in Vietnam,
dodging snipes,
tripping over gorilla holes,
one bullet barely grazing your ear...
FLASH!
you hypervinlate for air.
shakingly,
you reach up
to where your flashbacks recall.
your hand comes back bloody-
you scream.
you thought the battle was over,
but it seems the nightmare has just begun.
