The Withdrawal

Title: Lost.

Exhibited @ Blank Wall Gallery Monochrome International Photography Competition - digital showcase

Fantasy of a photo

 

We never took a photo together.

Thus you will only ever live in my memory.

 

My fear of memory loss intensifies

I might lose you within them

I imagine us in a crowded place

Our love still anonymous to everyone around

And someone clicks and shares

I’d finally have a photo we’re both together

 

When my memory fails me and I stare it

Even if I don’t remember you

I sense a warmth and a longing heartache

For someone I never knew

The Withdrawal is a self portrait photography project accompanied by poetry navigating the pain of losing a lover and enduring their withdrawal
