We slowly break apart
as we speed faster and faster
toward the ground
we are destroyed.

We desintegrate
from the pressure
of lost weightlessness
as the light bounces back
from the sun
we are blinded.

We smell not
the stench of death
that has come to envelope us
over these last few months.

We go numb
as our nerve endings
are burned shut
when we are literally set aflame.

we go mute
as our vocal chords
are torn to ribbons
from the air that once gave us life
as we shriek in agony.

we are deaf
and hear not the shrieks of pain
or the cries of joy
from the ones we love.
