those photographs that lined your mothers fridge
starryme

That night i stood
 1
before the faces of the past
 2
each photograph
 3
haphazardly placed
 4
on the offwhite refrigerator
 5
in that dingy kitchen
 6
 
 
I looked at all the faces
 7
the smiling eyes and mouths
 8
the blissful moments captured
 9
and contained on a
 10
glossy sheet
 11
 
 
each moment glowing
 12
in its own significance
 13
and each moment
 14
set apart, marked
 15
as one of our favorites
 16
 
 
in those color photographs
 17
i saw a child
 18
who had all the trust in the world
 19
who knew nothing but love and
 20
understood nothing but joy
 21
 
 
And i wondered
 22
for a passing moment
 23
what happened to that child
 24
with the dimples and the
 25
messy hair
 26
 
 
with the shining eyes
 27
and the glowing smile
 28
 
 
with the outstretched arms
 29
and the blissful expression
 30
on his childlike face
 31
 
 
And i wondered
 32
for a passing moment
 33
if all our happy moments
 34
end up to be the forgotten
 35
wallpaper of memories
 36
in some dingy kitchen
 37
of the future
