What the camera saw

They often  tell lies, but sometimes the camera catches a moment of truth. This isn't a classic poem but it catches a poignant moment.

The Photograph.

You, longing for another
who wasn’t there. 

She was leaning against me
but I didn't care. 

That sunny day
I was looking at you, 

confident my feelings
were not on view. 

But now I see
as the camera saw, 

that moment’s disappointment,
a lifetime cannot thaw.
