When Worlds Collide

A sky of collision
Filled with smoke colored black.
No one has the chance
To stop and look back.
Countless people are crying
Panicked; in haste.
Screams can be heard
Amongst all the waste.
Buildings and bodies
Tinged by the tears.
A fraction of a second
Confirmed the world's fears.
The sirens are sounding
And time, standing still.
It seems as though God
And the devil made a deal.
But who will be charged-
No one has decided.
The towers have fallen
Once worlds have collided.

"Do not go gentle in that good night, Rage rage against the dying of the light"

This is a poem worthy of it's title.

Hey, I thought I'd read another of your poems. This is pretty awesome. When I reached the final line I wondered why you used "once." I realize you wanted the colliding of worlds to be the cause, but grammatically "once" has to be used with "had" rather than the present tense "have." I'm sure you considered using "And." I was thinking it changes the cause-effect relationship around in a way you probably don't want, but it would fix the grammar problem and make the ending possibly more heavy-hitting than it already is (which is saying something since this is a great poem to begin with)

Yes, it's about 9/11.

It's just a poem I found I had written afterwards so I decided to send it in.
