Photograph

Nothing left of you now
nothing here to see
A memory left by you
soon that will fade, too
where did you go?
why didn't you know?
when I needed you
as time ticks away
my photograph fades
to black and white
no more colors, no more life
no more negatives, just a positive
taken out of the frame
held you to the flame
burning away my pain
so it's goodbye to blame






Written by: Kelly Deschler  motif: philosophical

    Kelly We all have pain we need to lose in our lives to move forward and start again. Getting rid of old memories can help us accomplish this. But did you have to pick a dangerous way. LOL Nice job Thanks for the awesome comment on my Treated Like Trash poem. Hugs
