All That Remain--Titanic

All That Remain (Titanic)*

rebel, rabble and rubble
now lie together
in this holocostic heap
of what 
once was
my heart.
appearing dormant
wretched cries for help--
questionably audible--
arise from within.
flotsum and jetsum 
are all that remain...
as the moonless night
gives way--to piercing
streaks of amber light--
stirring the lingering
            fog...
                  in my mind.

    YOu did a really good job for the contest, just envisioning yourself as one of the many whose lives were taken that day. Love your closing quote that you put into your language as well. LUv, Andrea
