Polaroids

Capturing too much hurt with this Polaroid camera.
Things I thought I could hide.
Manipulating my state of mind.

I’m left with these unwanted memories.
Intruding upon any happiness I might encounter.
Any opportunity to empower.

Instant images to keep forever.
Framed in a collage.
And displayed as a mirage.

I need to get rid of these polaroids.
They’re creating hurt in me that I could avoid.
I’ve been seeing pain in too many innocent lines.
