Crimson Wounds

Time heals everything, they say.

But can time heal
a wound time itself has caused?

Those smiles captured
in that yellowing photograph
still hanging on my wall
long after you left
like a talisman -
a reminder -
of all the moments
I will never live again.
Those smiles, frozen in time
on faces that will never shine so again.
