I remember seeing the towers crumbling
descending into the abyss.
I remember her gaze, the way she stared at me
It haunted every ounce of my body
It rattled my bones,
It shook my core,
It changed me.
I remember her raspy soft voice,
smooth and slithery,
with every word spoken,
sliding deep down into your soul.
I remember the innocence in her eyes
an innocence so sincere and profound
an innocence of the lost and suffering,
searching miserably for a chance of life,
her eyes, they spoke to me.
The descent I witnessed,
a shameful loss of existence,
a loss of something that could’ve been
a loss greater than anything.
I lost the love,
I lost the love that I never had,
I lost the love that never loved me,
I lost nothing,
yet I lost everything.
