Clinging onto faded photographs
Rigid poses that were choreographed
Blurred bodies and echoed laughs
Locked in stasis for a time and a half

A mirror to glance into the past
Sparking memories specific and vast
Faces of Youth gone too fast
Fleeting moments were never meant to last

A tool invented allows us to remember
Sunsoaked summers and chilled Decembers
Waves of joy and hearts in embers
A time conserved together

Hollowed mistaken perceptions
A past riddled with misconceptions
Tales of love, synergy, and connection
Preserved in two dimensions

Flashes and lenses lend us hindsight
A ghost of ourselves in the twilight
Unable to alter these frozen memories
We are tasked to evolve through modern tapestries
