Pictures


Pictures torn and wrinkled
Fading slowly over the years

Brittle and yellow with age
A box of tombstones with no names

Seeing only aged faces
Hollow eyes and empty smiles

One can only guess the occasion
Left to wonder where it was taken

Forgotten moments in time
Trapped forever
Frozen on simple paper

All memories gone to ashes
Last one to remember long passed away
And with them everybody’s name

Pictures from the past creating new questions

Nameless faces stored away
Aching to see the light the light of day

Trapped
Boxed
All wrapped up

Just waiting
Longing
Begging to be let out…
