Smudged

 

I paid an unexpected visit

You were called away,

I thought I’d look through photo’s

As a way to pass the day.

It would have been much better

For me to just have left it be

As I don’t think that what I saw

You’d meant for me to see.

For in each and every snapshot

Where my face should have stared back

I was confronted with a messy mark

That in color, it was black.

A disappointment I have been,

It’s very plain to see,

The black sheep of the family --

A smudged out snap of me!
