[underlined]AIR RAID[/underlined]
From the harsh tides of paralysing sound
Swift sparks of resurrected pain appear
In choking fires of imagination’s twist,

Stirring torn heartbeats, quickened and profound
Which blind my brain into a sickening mist
And the ecstatic sunrises of fear.

5 Mar 44
Worthing – Tuddenham.
