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


 


Back-flashing


 


In a room


 


Pitch-dark


 

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
Reviewed by Laura Mayer 5/12/2007
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
