soldier dreams
by Geminga J. Mistry

sweating, shaking, body quaking, starting, waking, turn from me
water flowing, tears are showing, sobbing growing, lost from me
pictures flashing, windows crashing, crimson splashing, far from me
bodies flying, children crying, cities dying, across the sea

nightmares raging, guns engaging, gazing, gauging, flames lick me
pieces rotting, birds are flocking, hair is knotting, torn with screams
can't forget it, have to bear it, visions red which paint out me
sweating, shaking, body quaking, starting, waking, never free
