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

  1. Is black and white photography so “empty” so to speak. I look at it as another way to create something beautiful removing all the chaotic mess in life ie colors and using the simple; ie the black and white 🙂 Great poem though!
