PTSD By Day

Time runs fast and still very slowly

Experiences varies from day to day

The worst thing is that certain parts

Of the brain feels sealed off

Connection missing, meetings, decisions

Are not remembered

Living in the middle of the chaos

Is so crazy it goes on and on and on

Long Time Ago In The War

Once I visit the war

As a curious stranger

A young man with

(Quite) noble motives

The war was in full swing

Being near the frontline

In a besieged city

Listening to random shooting

Feeling trapped and scared

I felt very well, being in a sort of

Hypertension being aware

Feeling strong and present

I returned to my safe country

Leaving the war behind

I fell and kept on falling

Feeling like a rundown

Tired octogenarian

The tiredness never left
