The Day the World Stood Still

The day the world stood still
I stood still with it
The sirens pumped their noise into my ears
But i couldn't hear it
I couldn't even hear my own scream, a breathy sob of your name

Someone tried to hold me
Whispering comforting words
But the whispers sounded like needless sympathy
The people gathered near
Trying to whisper to me
Don't know you
They don't know that when you died
The world stood still
And I stood still with it
