Digital Ghost

by Sherry Lynn   Apr 26, 2008


Looked through some old photographs today
just to catch a glimpse of your loving face
memories have become a haunting past
all happiness has forever passed

just a digital camera remains
holding precious broken dreams
reminiscing of what we once had
never again to be experienced

tears still flow when thoughts of you appear
stains forever left where a smile once stood
this broken heart has never mended
unable to forget about love so true

looked through some old photographs today
just to catch a glimpse of your loving face
memories have become a haunting past
all happiness has forever passed

    It's nice I like how you repeated the first stanza at the end it really brought the poem all together. This poem is sad, I know how it feels when you only have a picture to look at from someone that you will never be able to talk to. The title caught my attention, so all together a beautiful well written poem.

    It has already been said but I also agree about the clarity of emotion this demonstrates. Since I assume we have all had at least one experience like this we should all be able to write a poem about it. You have already done it for us! I wrote one about old letters, probably before we all had digital cameras, but I like yours just as much if not more.

    Let me tell you one thing, amazing.

    The flow is smooth, even though you classified it as a love poem Which is obvious that you or whoever was or is in love. But it's so sad because it's just a one sided love. All that is left are memories, pictures that are the greatest treasure of all the things and many can relate to this piece.

  • Firstly, congratulations on the win. You really do deserve it.. even for the title alone. I love it!!
    I particularly like how you repeated the first verse at the end.. really got the idea across.

    Don't get me wrong.. this poem is amazing how it is.. but I just a had a suggestion...??
    In the third verse, second line:

    "stains forever left where a smile once stood"

    I was thinking that maybe it could have been:

    'ghosts forever left...' OR EVEN
    'shadows forever left...'

    Just a suggestion...!!

    But honestly, I absolutely love this piece.. the title alone is poetic beauty!! (:
    5/5
