Interrupted me, you stranger,

with your camera.

Go on.

There is nothing to see here, you see.

Only me and my memories,

full of ghosts from the past.

I am but yesterday’s news.

Go on.

Tread softly, because

the love still lingers here;

the tears aren’t dry


Go on.

It is just a moment in time

that our paths cross.

I am but a fleeting memory.

Forget me, because you should.

See that vacuous look in my eyes?

Remembering is too heavy a burden to bear.
