Poem of the Week: Shellshock

Shellshock
July 8, 2013

These days I get angry for no reason
When I’ve got stuff I need to focus on,
No matter the moment or the season.
It’s a real roller coaster I’ve been on.
Thing is, too, I’ve been on it for so long
That it seems to me I’ll never get off.
“Time heals all wounds,” you say? Sorry. You’re wrong.
That statement’s just a cliché, so I scoff.
Don’t get me wrong, though; there are many things
In my life that I’d thought I’d moved on from,
And yet these days, I still feel the foul sting
From the memories of the heartless scum.
Shellshock is a bitch to move forward from.
Nonetheless, I still refuse to succumb.
