The Picture
by K.  Richardson

I find myself staring into the eyes of a picture,
a piece of paper that captures a moment in time. 

A feeling of happiness comes over me 
as I recollect the times when I  was in the picture,
a time when sadness and grief 
were too difficult to comprehend,
a time when nothing else in the world mattered to me
except the beating heart 
that was pressed up against mine,
when I felt as though I could close my eyes 
and feel myself flying through the clear blue skies 
and feel weightless as I soared high above the clouds, 
when I felt as though I was frozen in time 
with the one thing that was important to me.

Now as I open my eyes I see 
that I am no longer a part of the picture,
but merely an outsider looking in 
on the beauty of a love that used to be, 
and the only thing I can feel is the tear 
that slowly makes its way down my cheek.
