PTSD

by Mina Morgan about a year ago in sad poetry

A Poem Written From Person Experience

PTSD

Wake up in the middle of the night

With the cold sweats and it's on my mind

You pull me near and you hold me tight

Whisper in my ear "it's going to be alright"

_____

My heart is racing and my stomach feels sick

"Don't know why it had to come to this?!"

You lean in, "give me a kiss?..."

I watch you sleeping

The clock just ticks...

_____

Eyes get heavy

Scared to fall asleep

Past traumas are to blame

People made me weak
