My poem :)

You wait.

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.
