backwards flashing
sucking drowning
this godlike abyss is
draining draining

something comming
bodies falling people running
screaming howling drinking in flames
like tentacles deep beneathe the sea

so many pieces nothing fits at all
so many puzzles lost beneathe the fall

we could see the walls falling
in the distance people calling
we could hear the voices screaming
all the while the structures sinking

so strange how it hits you
what are you going to do
what are you going to do
what do you think you're going to do

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. If only the whole world could take to heart the commandment, thou shalt not kill. If only innocents did not die, for the politics of others. As I sit here, I look over at a newspaper from last week, showing a photo of one of the planes en route to the WTC, and I am numb and heartbroken. Thousands have died, and the end is not here. With the rage and hate that follows, can there be hope? The terrorists who did this, and their backers followed through with their hate, and rejoiced in causing misery and sorrow to their enemies. They saw no difference between innocents or those they deemed guilty in their hatred of America. They generalised us as one, and killed. As we strike back, so will they continue to do so. I see no end. My heart is broken for us all.

Humans don't need religion or God as an excuse to kill each other—you've
been doing that without any help from Me since you were freaking apes!" God said. "The whole point of believing in God is to
have a higher standard of behavior. How obvious can you get?"

(above is a small quote from the onion)
Jeff. Thank you.

Cabal, that whole parentheses ((((((name)))))) thing means they're hugging the person whose name is in the middle. So, Leaflin just hugged you and Michelle, basically.

Poem seems very from the heart... raw emotion and imagery. I'm very impressed.

Jeff and Michelle: Yep. That's why I love The Onion.
