PTSD Haikus 7.0

 
(i) Dark  
Darkness follows you  
As your mind vomits trauma  
You and my shadow  
   
(ii) Why?  
In your twisted mind  
Your torturers never age  
They never die: why?  
   
(iii) Remember  
The feelings, the sights  
The smells, the pain and the fear  
Real like yesterday  
   
(iv) Don't  
Please don't plead, don't beg  
praying to your god: Pointless  
Mind and body raped  
   
(v) Them  
Demons and monsters  
Both real and present dangers  
Strangely human  
   
(vi) Try  
Your head can't shake it  
You try hard with all you might  
they'll use the force  
   
(vii) Again  
Like they did before  
They are doing over again  
There’s no deterrent
