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
