When Time Stood Still~by Lilian Dipasupil Kunimasa


 

 

When Time Stood Still

Time stood still for me
No one else to see
Alone as can be
Solitary bee

I see no bully
No snide, no laughter
Nothing on telly
No kids to banter

Rare moment alone
Yet no words come in
Prayers of a stone
Songs of mannequin

Overwhelmed by crowd
Choked by solitude
For crying out loud!
No more platitude

What’s it that I want?
Neither fire nor ice
What’s it that I hunt?
Confused are my eyes

Time stood still today
Solitaire’s silence
Don’t like it this way
Let the noise commence
