LUCKY DEAD

lucky dead
no demons haunting sleep
distorting peace
nightmare invasion
of repose

lucky dead
no waking sweats
bedevil the flesh
or visions flashing
psychedelic horrors

lucky dead
no numbing agony
of bone and muscle
or phantom pain
limbs detached

lucky dead
no fear or loathing
reflected in eyes
only grief for what
might have been

lucky dead

Strong piece, hope you aren't feeling this way? Is death ever really lucky for anyone except terminally incredibly ill people?

Not the way I think at all. Just an reaction to something a friend said about the horrors of Vietnam that he and some of his buddies endured there and experienced after they returned home.

Could those who died have really been the lucky ones, not to have had this suffering?

Very haunting, thought provoking piece.
