Fragments and Reminders

Pushing shopping carts filled with my life

Rummaging through fragments and reminders

Is it possible to recycle only the memories of my choosing?

There are so many that I would like to drift away

She Took Black and White Photos

She took black and white photos

Her lense searching for a cure

Zooming in and out of a life that felt alone

Despite the perfect picture in a shiny frame


She took black and white photos

Because it was easier not to feel

A reflection of herself inside

Looking colorless in a mirror


She took black and white photos

Would the color ever return?

Waking each morning to capture the sunrise

Hoping one day the sun would appear
