Abandoned Dreams

by mkvecchitto

abandoned dreams

Found a discarded photograph by the side of the road

Yellowed by time, its shadows whispered a story

Frayed edges framed tattered dreams in black and white

A packed suitcase on a perfectly made bed beneath that cracked window

Yellowed by time, its shadows whispered a story

A simple wedding band there on the pillow

next to a one-way bus ticket out of town

Frayed edges framed tattered dreams in black and white

this picture captured the image of a man just outside

sitting on a porch with his head in his heads

A packed suitcase on a perfectly made bed beneath that cracked window

Her plans were made, this woman who no longer needed

mementos of another life
