Empty eyes met with gouged perception
Shedding but a single salt rock tear
Shattered mirror shows melting reflection
Into captured hope I lamentably peer

Flashed memories imprint my propensity
The lens sheds animosity from faded shutter
Polaroid melts from sheer intensity
Hear the melancholy squall wings flutter

Memory dust settles in deaths coffee
Yet causes no outbreak or cough
Faded gems of past content set free
Choking on depressions trough

Accepting captured reality
I give a reluctant sigh
Engulfing my denial, Mentality
Clinching,
To photos of my mother who's died
