Wednesday Poeming

I must have PAD hangover because I couldn’t resist joining in on the Wednesday Poetry Prompt over on Poetic Asides to write a When Everything Stopped poem.

Why didn’t everything stop
when the Doctor stood before us
and his mouth moved
his words turning the world
monochrome

Why did people still laugh
smiles shouldn’t remember how to
shine

Why did music makers still
make music
a new favorite song
Shouldn’t the sun dissolve
spiral resolve
to cry permanent tears

Shouldn’t there have been
a moment
when everything
stopped
Even the raindrops
because
they too knew
the world could no
longer
continue
without you in it
