Words became weapons,
Faces collapsed,
9/11, bad.
Doors got locked,
rooms emptied
and the house was left sad.

Days passed and eyes cried,
Emotions drained and laughs dried,
Son left,
daughters remained.
With pain both shared and apartment,
and shared a meal.

Stand still no sorries,
Serious reality,
no stories.
Tears frowned,
and stopped flowing.
emotions zipped their mouths,
and skins got thick,
then home left,
because everybody is right
