PTSD

By Damien Knight

The warrior wakes surrounded by dead
Mind spinning, ghosts in my head
Blood spills like wine out of me
Here I die my soul set free
No more bloodshed, no more war
I shan’t drink sorrow anymore

    You said a handful in the short poem. War teaches us, only one good thing. One more day to be alive at home with family. Is the true gold of life.
