The Daymare

You are trying to scream
Your voice is muffled
No one can hear you

Swim
You can’t 
You are drowning
In shrapnel, gas, and bullets 

You are trying to breath
You can’t
You are inhaling 
Black smoke, dust, gun powder, and metal 

You are trying to move 
You can’t
Your limbs are trapped, broken, bleeding, and numbed

It is a nightmare!
You are digging the cemented floors and falling ceilings
With your bare hands and nails
Looking for your mother, father, children and wife

You are trying to wake up
You can’t
Because you are awake.
