A Photograph.

 

Found buried deep inside a drawer,

It makes me wonder quite what for?

 

Looking closely, I’m sure I don’t know who

the face that looks back at me belongs to.

 

There’s something about her pleasant face

that seems as though it belongs in this place.

 

Should I go digging, should I ask,

Or will I be taken sorely to task.

 

A long lost relation, a ghost from the past,

Perhaps better buried, put back really fast.

 

It might be some lover, someone forbidden

That one of you wants to ensure just stays hidden.

 

I’ll return the envelope, bury it deep,

a secret that for now I’m going to keep.
