Implosion - A Poem

Updated on July 23, 2013

It hits you like a brick bat

Out of nowhere

You don’t see it coming

You don’t hear a sound

But when it hits

It hits hard

It takes your breath away

It knocks you to your knees

It shakes the very foundation of your world

You feel lost, alone, afraid, unsure, confused. . .

You mull things over and over in your mind,

over and over, and over and over. . . .


Asking questions that have no answers

Waiting for answers that never come

Standing in the smoldering rubble of what once was

You recognize nothing, everything is gone

Wandering in darkness and confusion

Looking for some kind of escape, some way out

Out of the pain, out of the strain, away from this doom

And back to what you know as normal

But all you find is the heaviness in your chest

And the knowledge that it’s happened. . .

The Implosion

Of your life

      Can a person be of 2 clans? I ideftiny with both the elements of FIRE and AIR live them both equally and personality wise I am excessive of both. Although a Taurean which is more earthy and I recognize I have too much fire in me and need more water to calm me My animals that I feel close to are the panther/Jagaur and I love eagles, hawks, owls and butterfly. I have always been running from snake but it keeps popping up in dreams and in readings so . do I sound confused or what?

      Wow, thank you TDowling! Your hub was really enjoyable and informative. I am honored that you took the time to read my little poem. True that these things seem to have a profound effect on each of us and we respond in different ways.

      I have found the Hub Pages community a wonderful place to share my writing and receive the encouragement, support and much needed critical review, that I need.

      Always happy to welcome new and newly discovered hubbers like yourself!

      Powerful! Powerful, emotional verbal images. It's ironic I should find this Hub. I came to your site to thank you for your nice comments on my World Trade Center Hub. And somehow God's hand took me here.

      I was working at a community college on 9/11. And I HAD to write my thoughts about that day and I posted them on our email bulletin board. Within a couple of days the college had a ceremony to remember 9/11 and I was asked to share those words with the group. They weren't as near as poignant or powerful as those above.

      I'm so appreciative of everyone in the Hub community. It seems like a warm, friendly bunch. Thanks. -TD

      Unless Mhatter, it happens more than once. Then you can see and feel the signs. But it still has the same effect, even when you think you are prepared.

      Thanks for commenting.

      Exceptional! Thank you. Most of victims I've witness aren't aware it s happening until it is over.

      Our lives may have this effect upon us and there is little that we can do, but to pray and try to go on with our lives and make the best of each day. This signifies the haunting heartfelt hurt that human kind must endure, until it is their time to go and be with the Father, where true happiness can be found. Thank you for sharing this message and well received by all.
