Here is the photograph and my story:

Something More Than Usual

“When a gaze cannot be held
someone is usually
right or wrong.
Tilting the facts
one way or another
doesn’t change
the way things are.

Turn away.
Look at me.”

Those are the last words he wrote to me.  But this was long ago when the boats were heavy with hope.  We knew he was leaving.  We knew I had to stay.  Boats can only hold so much weight at a time.
