a photographic memory

And
that
was
it.

With the pop and flash of the bulb
the visage in the picture was the only thing left of her.

Somewhere betwixt jockeying
for position with her two closest friends
and the snap of the camera shutter,
she was lost forever.

Her smile- fixed and rigid.
Her eyes glazed over and blank.

A shell remained;
she functioned
yet,
where SHE actually went
no one ever figured out.

Dreams and plans,
vanquished with the vaporizing smoke of the flash.
GoneÖ

A ghost in human form,
haunts the earth.

Until
her
remains
reunite
with
her
soul.
