a blueprint of how it was

photograph this now
because I don’t think it
will last for very

paint this picture with
night and a hint of

so I can play it back
when everything
goes back to how
it was.

and now
do not wish upon
unless you wish
to become it.

    Life is a flickering series of images that will pass us by, so preserve them now or forever lose them. Great poem, I'm glad I got to read it.
