How the World Stands Still

Oh how the world stands still if you let it. 
How life speeds by through indecision.
How your body pains if you don't listen.
How your heart blooms when you hear.
How the city holds your hand like a small child.
How you let it shield you from the truth.

How we keep living in our self destruction.
The Universe predicts a grim demise.

To me, the end will come as no surprise.

And I still choose to love.
