frozen in time

November 13, 2013 wednesday - 23:52

photographs are funny things. i see you, across the screen, and it feels like we are meeting. the smile you have is for whoever will be looking. for me. just for me. you are smiling at me.

and i feel like i can reach out and touch you, but of course i can't. the photograph is evidence of a moment in time, frozen forever. but time doesn't freeze. you smiled, the camera flashed, the picture was taken, and then you turned and moved away, through time.

so now i here am, years in the future, smiling back at you. but i cannot reach you, i cannot touch you, and you are lost to time.
