orange lights [tribute on 9/11]

screaming bodies

they fell

looking on in horror

as the bodies fell victim

to the roaring flames

the orange tongues of light

surrounding on all sides

you rushed forward to help

your skin,

burning,

dying,

blackening

but you pull them out

and dive back in

to save more

their lives are more precious

the price of one

for the saving of many

you tell yourself

and that makes the darkness

easier to bear

~

dressed in black

mourning

you wished you yourself

had been in the flames

those flickering

orange lights

instead of just

watching

as their charred ashes are

scattered into the winds

of their beloved

new york city

~

you are looking back

regretting every moment

as you pass into the void

why did i go that morning,

you ask yourself

if only you hadn’t

then maybe you’d still

be in the light

you close your eyes

the last thing you see

is the orange light

that surrounds you on

every

single

side
