Photos, Poem

I can’t see where you’re coming from

As your form grows larger

You move closer and your face gets fuzzy

That look you give me

Leaves me questioning your motives

And the photo in your hand

That photo you’ve been alluding to all year

Seems to be letting me in on a small secret


No doubt the photos that we take

Will someday take us away

No doubt we’ll see each other in a different light

Unlike we see each other today


Our table is set for two

And has been for a while now

Our piano is out of tune

And the notes come out one after the other

Projects put on hold and you gone for hours

Your camera has been dead for days

Only holding memories from months ago


No doubt the photos that we take

Will someday take us away

No doubt we’ll see each other in a whole new light

Unlike we see each other today


You said we’d take that trip

You promised long ago

You said we’d travel far

You don’t even seem to want to go


I can’t see where you’re coming from

As the light gets dimmer

We sit across from each other and the silence billows

That look you give me

Leaves me wanting a reason

And the photo in your hand

That photo you haven’t shown me all year

Seems to be letting me in on a big secret


No doubt the photos that we take

Will someday take us away

No doubt we won’t see each other anymore

Just like we don’t see each other today
