The Loss

                     about veteran of the war
                     who has Post - Traumatic
                     Stress Disorder and Survivor

The war in my mind will never go away.
Having  again and again a nightmare.
I am lost and alone, I cry.
I feel empty, I want to die.

Waking up at night in a cold sweat:
You are again with me, young soldier.
You, who protected me at war and died.
Feeling guilty: I know you never be older.

Why am I alive, not you? Why?
You will never know how it hurt.
Feeling remorse : I didn't say "goodbye."
I silently scream like a wounded bird.

The war in my mind comes again and again.
My heart and soul the war has stolen.
I am lost; I am empty; I am war's prey.
Pain and grief  will never go away.
