Life stalled

A day passes,

All into nothingness,

Life stalled,

Stupefied,

Frozen in time,

Doing something,

But nothing.

World outside,

Moving by,

You watch inanimated.

A fear gnaws,

Wary of people around,

Afraid to tarry,

Or anything to carry,

Scared to touch,

And feel a warm hug,

Trust gone for a toss,

Doubting all that was loved.

Bright lights hushed,

Streets that never slept,

Now ambushed,

Silent sombre,

Desolate and empty.

Strange times,

Strange days,

I know this world not!
