this is a one night story
but a night that lasted like a life time
There were fighter aircrafts They were flying above us
But it felt like it was right there next to me. I was horror-struck
But it got worse
The first bomb was the time i felt the closest to the death I thought that night was my last I was far, far away from my family, My mother, my father, my brother...
Starting from the second one I wasn't myself anymore
I took the children to sleep They were just like me We hugged each other so tightly I thought we were going to stay like that forever.
We fell asleep
But the bombs woke us up for a few times Each of them were my nightmares We were protecting ourselves with hugs like they were the shields.
We prayed for the windows not to be broken
It was like the bomb was exploding in the same room with us
There was no end.
I still have the trauma But i am healing, I guess
People will never understand me
It was something different So so different That made me question my mental health for a long time
It was a nightmare that lasted for a night
A night like a life time.
