Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Post Traumatic Experience
 






I have been
in the sadness of dark and despair
and nobody knows of the woes I found there.

Drifting...
hallucionogenic haze,
post accident trauma
in anaesthetic experiment days.

I was fearful.

'You need it,' they said.
I, too weak to refuse,
tried gripping reality...
fear wins,
I lose.
The accident was just yesterdays news.

I was lonely

In my head dwelled a nightmare,
the hospital sinking,
beds sucked into caverns
of raw sewage stinking
and all the while bed pans
were clanging and clinking.

I was horrified.

There is no escape in traction,
steel pin right through the leg.
They would not let me save the lost
though I did mournful beg.

I was broken.

That daily examination
where they'd measure, poke and prod...
Thank the Lord, I regained control
and remembered...
all things are possible with God!

'You need it, dear',
they insistently said.
I politely refused and prayed instead.

I am rescued.
