Together or Apart

It’s come to get me, the sweet kiss of death.
It seems to be looking.
Through the streets, through the trees, between you and me.
Some have lost their loved ones but I’ve lost my life.
We need to keep going though and prevent the next spike.

We’re all a bit alone in this, I don’t know whats next.
It’s hard to cry to each other, constantly over text.
So, I’ll sit alone waiting, waiting by the phone.
Together or apart,
the world goes on alone.
-Zoe Power
