NaPoWriMo Day 20: Still

No,
The world did not stop
When you went away.

The trains still come and go
Plants still wither and grow
The birds still fly in peace
The buildings still outshine the trees.

The river never stopped to rest
The sun still sets in west
People still shout and cry
Innocent souls still do die.
Still do die.
They still do die.

The world did not stop
When you went away
I did.

The world did not stop
When you went away
I wish it had not.
