    A day was born
    clear blue skies
    sunshine! sunshine!
    all in the apple sang as the
    day began with promise

    I figured the wind must've shifted and
    left promise lay at the doorstep
    of a day gone good ,but,

    the wind stood still and held time
    in an hourglass and watched as it
    passed with the sands of pain

    the minutes prayed....
    I never knew they could .... of unshattered
    silence and dreams of seconds with no
    screams but ... the shroud of
    darkness of antirighteousness covered
    all in the apple ....

    ..... ......
    ..... ......
    ..... ......
    ..... ......
    ..... ......
    ..... ......
    ..... ......
    ..... ......
    ..... ......

    ..............................................................

    silence.....
    after the smoke clears
    I wonder if the angels will
    rise covered in soot taking with
    them the remnants of a nightmare
    trapped in reality

    so the tears can fall freely beyond the
    questiion of why.....
    and those that have lost loved ones
    can begin to celebrate their past...and current
    existence.

    :(

    whoever is at the root of this will have to answer to
    a higher divine being who is much greater than man
    even in hiding an evil spirit is tormented and punished

    blakverb...

    All I could do was read...and feel..and breathe....

    This piece evoked so many emotions in me...the sound of that deadly silence...summoning me....through air...

    Even in times of war...the world is still a beautiful place...if everyone else dies...let one man survive....to write the poetry......

    This is unreal

    "of unshattered silence and dreams of seconds with no screams"

    this piece is so achingly beautiful...

    I have thought over and over that no words on paper could justify the loss, pain or deep sadness of this event..

    you have proven me wrong with this piece....

    I sit here with visions of ash covered angels...
