    Today

    I've known where your photo was. I've just been avoiding that side of the room, just glancing at the room. Just the thought of seeing your face frozen in time, all happy.... It brings back many memories and lots of pain. The thought of "what if?" "where?" "how?" But I...

    They're All Gone

    Sorry but the only pictures I tend to hold on to are the ones that bring me good memories. Sorry mom, sis and bro, I only get bad memories from you all and therefore have gotten rid of all your pictures. I can't have your type of negativity in my life. Farewell and don't forget...

    I Burned It

    I found an old album of your wedding.  I was aged 2 and half and was your flowergirl.  My smile was not present in any of the pictures in which we were together - there was one in which you were holding my hand whilst posing in your wedding dress and veil and...

    The Week Before It All Went Wrong

    There's a picture of the four of us, me and Leo and you and him. We're in the local, us two with huge cocktails and them with beer. We're all smiling like crazy, but you can see that me and Leo look a little sad. It was the day you told us you were expecting your son. I should...

    I comment on lots of pictures, but never get any on mine. Is it because women don't comment on guys pictures, or because nobody wants to comment because they are bad? (hope not)
