Hillsborough 1989

April sunlight darkened to terror
death's stadium echoed with screams
the air rank with our vomit
our fingers clawing steel
frantic to escape
suffocating
lungs heaving
to draw
air



*96 people died at Hillsborough

    So heartwenchingly tragic, Charlotte. Feels like a clip from a horror film. Excellent stanza to depict this heinous event. Would have been a most traumatic experience. Best wishes, love, Mikki

    This fetched to the fore sad memories for me, not only about the 96 that died but it was on the news in the emergency room where I lost my baby. But it is a good nonet xx

    I can feel their horror, it must have been awful. Nice poem, though.

    This is a wonderful write Charlotte! I really enjoyed how you based this poem on an actual event that happened...which simulates what the picture relates in Nette's Imagination contest! What a incredible write! Great Work!!
