a moment lasts a life time
as it echoes through the mind

flash backs are forever
keeping us confined

a sound, a shadow
a touch or smell

instantly transports you
back to that living hell

a memory from nowhere
tears upon the cheek

cursing at the lack of strength
at why you feel so weak

a moment lasts a life time
with a memory from hell

even when you know your safe
your reactions always tell


  1. i love this poem its a perfect way to explain a bad memory of something...at least to me it is. it brings me back to a place i normally wouldnt like but when reading this it almost makes that memory beautiful

  2. glad it allowed you to look at it in a new way,
    you in turn have allowed me to look at the poem in a new light as well so thank you

  3. What an app description for P.T.S.D.
