Prolonged Exposure

Tracing the outline
of her face
from a photograph
he thought

Maybe sometimes
our feelings fade
long before the images
or the impressions
left behind

It seemed like
only yesterday
he held her in his arms
but the reality
was this face
sadly smiling
in his hand

This proof of fading
wordlessly begun
far longer ago
than either of them
had realized
at the time
