We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. ~~~ WALT DISNEY


Spinning, spinning,
The world twirls in my head.
Gulls cry above me,
Ocean moaning with dread.

Swirling waters rip,
Around and around.
Sand whipping at my face,
crying out.

You keep moving,
like the rest.
Too fast and indepth,
to hear me call:

"STOP!"

Suddenly, the world freezes.
Your hand in mine.
The wind doesn't blow.
Skies remain birdless.

It's just you and I,
at this standstill.
Take a deep breath and close your eyes...

Okay I was literally dry of good ideas till I wrote the word "Standstill" at the top of the paper true story.
