Terror and love

To touch the aircraft wheel on the country's soil
An emergency message ...
Authorities have arranged for drinking, feeding and sleeping
Emergency and sudden landing of soldiers across the country ...

After seventy two hours of terrorism, I came to know
I lost my dearest Nicholas
With the twin towers, the pride of nation
I lost him forever

After the catastrophe, with frightened and terrified hands,
I opened the letter box one day
A sealed blue envelope was delivered, stamped on 2001/09/11
The pearls are shed by him ...
"My dear Emily, you're my love
  .... and beyond love "

What a lovely narrative of time and modern threats. I really enjoyed the theme you approached, the idea is really appealing in its essence and the combination between true, dramatic events and love, feels like a mixture of realism. I also loved how you expressed the light of love in the dark framework of terrorism. BUT what I found so fascinating with this text, was your interpretation of lost love; like something that has been destroyed, but its powers always being able to linger
