The Camera Roll

Click, click, click,
Delete, delete, delete,
Phone memory full
With countless selfies.

 
Every fleeting moment,
Every person we meet,
We make it a point
To take a click.

 
But oh, how I miss,
Those bygone days,
When every click was precious,
The camera rolls, treasured.

 
Every photo was accounted for,
Deleting was out of option,
They were saved in the albums,
Some framed and showcased.

 
And, oh! Those negatives!
And how I adore them!
Storehouse of million memories,
Each of them dearly cherished.

 
But now, they seem like a distant memory,
Of friends I no longer talk to,
Dreams that died long ago,
And a part of me, I no longer remember.

For NaPoWriMo Day 17.

    Yes! I’ve often thought of how it’s a shame that doesn’t happen now. And, you have to be disciplined to create an album with the duplicates removed and only containing the highlights, for showing to people. But even then, people don’t sit down to go through photos together much anymore.

    “But now, they seem like a distant memory,
    Of friends I no longer talk to,”

    Ha! Maybe you meant past friendships, but this is another part of what I mentioned aboveβ€” people getting out of touch! Even when they are supposedly friends.
