Lucid Dreams


I tremble in nighttime fits

Tossing and turning—chills and goose flesh

In a mind-blowing blitz


Seeing buddies

Dead tho’ many years past

Alive in the moment


A cinéma vérité

Of times unsurpassed


I hear their frantic shouts of warning      

Their faces

Animate in righteous agony


Amid the thump of mortars crunching

  and rockets piercing

Rounds a whistling

  and curses echoing


All within a madhouse of frenzy as the bodies fall


A scene so strikingly vivid in my mind


Proximate of green

Heaven of blue


Rice paddy shimmer

Sun’s burnin’ hue


Olive drab uniform

Wounds red glimmer


A psychodrama of colors




In a room




395 and a Wake Up

Wrting frees and unchains the bad of past
Youre honest prose is refreshing sir
Keep writing
Well done.

This is deep... it really must have been terrible over there. Loved it.

Although many of us will never know what it was like, you write so well that you give an insight into the terrors that were endured. Take care, Sue

For the veteran, the war never ends, the flashbacks and post traumatic stress disorder is always present in their minds.
You've penned the nightmare well.
Hugs, Laura
