The world went silent
and tears rolled down
the dirty faces 
of sweaty teens.

The peeling soccer ball 
skidded to a halt at my feet. 
The whistle blew
and our chests heaved
and our jerseys were stuck
to our backs. 

The air was thick
with our sorrow
and the wailing
of our crumbled teammate.

Her foot was at a disarray 
and we were waiting
for an eternity
until the ambulance came. 

Its sirens pierced the thick air
and our sorrow lifted
but still 
tears rolled down
the dirty faces 
of sweaty teens
and we were waiting
for an eternity 
until they stopped.
