There Are No Words!

Lord Tennyson is right
There are no words

Live feeds horrific sight
Gaze froze twice raw cords

Speechless discern
Involuntary bounds
Our extreme concern
Screaming smokey sounds

Scrutinized
Tears
Televised
Sears

Poison clouds
Sorrowed broken hearts
Pardon us with our shrouds
Our world stolen parts

Collapsing pillars of steel
Ignorance grasps
Innocents  surreal
Merciless traps

Glass melts and peel
Running for last gasps

Lord Tennyson is right
There are no words

    You capture that feeling of disconnection, of suspension, of life becoming lost in the cinematic drama, that is with us still from that day.

    But at least, in our weak way, we choose to remember and meditate.

    You said it right. there were no words for that day. I think we all were speechless. I am so pleased to have read so many poems about this. We are all still trying to come to terms with the events of 9/11 and the aftermath. Great Write!
