The World Just Stops

Searching for her own demise

Hiding behind a mere disguise

She looks for answers in the skies

But as she does, the world just stops

 

Unanswered are, the questions she has

She and her lover have crossed paths

 

And so she waits for that last glance

The hope and fear for that one last chance

To take his hand and have this dance

But as she does, the world just stops

 

Like the moving of the one last pawn

She awoke to the chill of the dawn

 

Closing her eyes so she cannot see

She sets the shackles on her feet free

By telling her love that this cannot be

But as she does, the world just stops

 

Not knowing what this is all about

She stirs her heart without one doubt

 

She waits until his heart she caught

She could not wait

She found what she sought.
