The Wedding Photo

Smiling faces framed side by side,
Ebony and ivory on listless backdrop,
Hung high on the walls,
Adorned on every souvenir,
Their portrait of love,
Symbol of a union soon to become,
Reminder to the final day of loss and gain,
Invisible lines drawn in virtual sands,

Traces of sobs lingering at the edges,
As the thought gnaws ever deeper,
It should be me…
