PTSD: Hell Lives Within

Haunted by demons

who come from the past,

engulfed by memories

that swallow your soul.

Living in torment,

dreaming of Hell,

brought on by situations

out of control.

Spiraling downward,

grasping at straws,

praying to God

to make this shit stop.

For those of us

who suffer from PTSD,

life is a battle

we fight everyday,

trying our damnedest

to make sense of it all.

We were traumatized in ways

we  are unable to share,

but when we do,

the dark clouds of fear,

hate, anger and guilt,

rush back with a vengeance

that has a life of its own.

We try and live our lives

the best way we can,

but most people think

we are crazy

or don't understand

this Hell that dwells in us

that causes such pain.

We get angry, violent or sad,

so the world sees us

in negative light,

when all we are doing is

fighting the demons

that started this shit.

Cut off from a society

that can't see

through our eyes,

isolating ourselves

inside tortured minds,

feeling desperately lonely,

seeking and clinging

to those small moments

of thoughtful insight

that come from

our journey of

questions and answers,

wondering if we

will ever be free

from this Hell that lives within.
