Woah I love this! I can see why you posted this under dark poems. There is that eerie feeling I got while reading this poem. The images themselves were dark but the feelings as well just freaked me out.
The first stanza I immediately think of some kind of sicko perverted man who has taken pictures of you to fulfil his own fantasy. The idea that he has taken the photo of you and using it for his own sickness alters the photo. It takes away the true person you are, the sunny part instantly and the photo turns to darkness because of who has taken it.
I love the poem, the vivid description the uniqueness of it. Awesome write hun!!!
WOW this must be on of the greatest poems you;ve penned to date, the most free poem, nothing sounds forced, its soo geniune..its treasure, this is wat i most love in poetry, my fav style, and loved how you used those manipulative tools in editing photos...it was very well used, and in a very well thought of way.

OMG THIS IS SO UNIQUE! I LOVE THIS IDEA! Im so jealous I didn't think of it!!
Seriously I loved that you took words that we do with photographs (crop, edit, effect) and used them in a different sense to describe what its like when a person tries to change you....dear God that is brilliant!
