Time Stands Still
My hands are shaking;
My voice is quiet.
There's that pressure in my chest
That's growing.
Do you know what it feels like
Not to breathe?
For fear it could change your whole reality
Forever?
In just a moment's notice
Time stands still.

Afraid of regrets.
Scared of rejections.
All those little things
That make up my life
Could change once I speak to you.
Transform into sanity
Or quickly fall into solemness,
All I can do is wait for that jarring instant
That takes away my many inquiries
And replaces them with truth.
In just a moment
Time stands still.

I really liked this. Each line flowed perfectly after each other, and I think this is a situation most people can relate to (including myself). Awesome ;)

A Word from the Writer
I'm scared to death of calling my friend tomorrow that I haven't spoken with in so long. A lot of things happened I need to explain, because he really doesn't know the real reason I told him to move on. I don't know if he'll pick up, in some ways I doubt it but I can't stand the pain of not knowing what would happen if I didn't call him and ask to see him again. I care about the outcome, but most of all I'd just like the chance to get some closure about the whole situation.
