Time Stands Still

We walked along just the two o f us
Rain drops pelting down like bullets
All was quiet
Not a car passed by
No birds chirped in the trees
All lights are frozen
Everything is still
Quiet
It is unnerving
We continue
Our footsteps
Echo
With every splash of rain
Anticipation grows
We wait to hear some sound
Nothing
A look at each other
Our lips are sealed
For fear of breaking this enchanting spell
Time is at a stand still
Only we have not been altered by the change
We are lost in a dimension
Nothing moves
All exists

The description is amazing, I love how clear the scene is. You capture perfectly the feeling of what I'm assuming is two new lovers feeling like the world stands still while they try to gather the nerve for a first kiss. Or something along those lines.
