soldier's words

Capt. D sent this to me. back only a few months from A’stan



stop…breath….think….decide…
quickly…push emotions aside
don’t…let pain win
don’t….let anyone else in
so much misery around me
so much loss…only memories
of how they used to be…
feelings…they’re never free
they come with the ultimate price
please…take my advice
run away
don’t stay
as soon as I start to care
its like they were never there
tears…running down my cheek…
choking…as I start to speak…
I fucking miss you all…
so I turn to alcohol
my one true friend tonight
forget everyone out of spite
stop….breath…think…decide…
quickly…push emotions aside
