trouble came to early, this morning as i rose from bed without knowing it. hung up that receiver and it whispered words i had never heard. gasped as i touched it to the body. your voice was conveying something i would be too late to realize. and yes, trouble has surely come for us all this morning. yet, i made it through the day oblivious of the trouble to come. again by ear piece, slowly dialed numbers to reveal the fate of us all. my ears too blind, eyes so deaf - now numb through the entire thing. numb or in disbelief? receiver slides from fingers to the floor. used continuously as just a messenger to hear a reaction over and over that would never quit. silence and terror, gasps and sighs, sobs and screams, tears and silence once more.
