A memory, timed perfectly.
Of that girl on the beach
Or that old married couple.
Frozen in time, you stare at us blankly.
Offering no solutions
When our lives fall apart
We take comfort in you anyway.
Thinking of that time we smiled at the camera
Posed, and laughed at our faces
It doesn’t matter
You carry a place in our heart
We’ll frame you
Or carry you around in our pocket
Glancing at you everyday
Until 30 years later
We’re sighing at society
Tracing frozen shapes with our fingers
Wondering how life goes so quickly
How our past selves could be so mockingly cruel
And we throw you across the rooms
Sobbing at what could’ve been.
