poem: a lonely man

(81 words) 23 Jun 2018

by S.R.A. Markin

this man would take pictures of
nearly everything
and hold onto anything
he would worry
and worry
and hold tightly to his worries
even during the best of times

because he once had someone
who touched him with kindness
and showed him happiness in being himself
he takes another photo
although there is nothing
and she no longer stands starring
so, this man takes a picture of
his broken smile

and there were no more pictures taken from this lonely man.
