Poem: When the World Stopped

When the world stopped

I was already lying down;

Gazing at,

Nimbostratus.

I wanted to see the stars

And the hope beyond.

When the world stopped

I sat up.

I couldn’t see the stars,

But felt a new hope,

despite the rain.

When the world stopped

I stood. Not touching. Anyone.

I hid my face.

And crossed the road,

because I care.

Not because I don’t.
