An emptiness fills the room
suffocates all logic and reason,
no warning or cry to be sounded
suppressed and drowning
in billows of thick black smoke.
Onlookers try to consume
that awful day of loss and pain
engulfed by power and fear of
Overpowered by grief and despair,
never know which way to turn
always lost in the mass confusion;
thirteen hundred plus feet
above the ground
Fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters
tears seared in history
tallest twins laid down.
