PTSD 

PTSD looks like 

Calm waters on a quiet sea

People moving 

Working

See

Everything looks normal here

No violence yelling or need for fear

Everything looks normal here

Wait for a jumping fish to appear

PTSD feels like

Turmoil under the calming sea

So much frantic activity

Every movement threatens me

Every being that comes into my awareness

Looks at me

Are they mean

Do they need

Something from me

PTSD sounds like every crash

Every sound 

An attack hound

Sudden jerking 

Bursting in

Throw something 

You have sinned
