Poetry

Images

Written by Jacob Ibrag

You grab the album of pictures. Haven’t

seen these in a while. It’s been collecting dust while

you’ve been collecting memories. Page after page you

begin to realize why you haven’t reached for them in all of

these years. They’re reminders, bullets hitting your psyche.

People you’ve lost touch with. Moments you wish you pushed

a little harder. That girl you should’ve never said goodbye to.

‘Good riddance,’  you whisper remembering that it was never

this perfect no matter what these images were trying to

say. You smile, knowing everything was in its right

place. Nothing is perfect, it isn’t supposed to be.

Images married to stunted  prophecy.

  1. It’s weird. One can both appreciate and regret the past through looking at just one image. Beautifully painful. Photography is poetry.
