    Frameless

    I am a picture with no frame, no writing on the back, year unknown
    I am not the kind of picture you display in your living room, on your bedroom dresser, or even on your fridge. I am difficult to recall, tucked away under forgotten dreams and errands. Trash that no one ever throws away. Useless storage for the nosy children to find. I am not met with a smile when found, just quickly shoved to the back of guilt and shame we took thankless blame for. I am a picture without a frame flashing a toothy smile I thought was real. My frame was broken for being thrown away and replaced by a cluttered drawer. Somehow, I was still developed to even be here so maybe frames are for wallflowers anyway.

    • Dear Milan,
      You are not frameless. I see you and you are beautiful. Always know that and stay strong in your pursuit of happiness.

    • Milian-Anaj you are a picture perfect sense in my aura. I tuck pictures, cards and notes deep inside of my closet and clothes drawers because those are the pieces that mean THE MOST to Me. I have a minnie mouse birthday card from my mom when I turned 14… its not out in the open on display its tucked deep within so the moments when I am loosing my footing around Me I go through my cards and feel whole again. You may be frameless but trust Me … you are most certainly timeless! Thank you for sharing a bit of your soul with us! :”)

    • Hi there, Milan. Aiša here. Thank you for sharing this work of heart and art with all of us here. You are memorable. You are worthy of being remembered. And believe it or not, I carry the very same worry around. Everywhere I go. I never put it down. And so the fear of being forgotten persists. I want to assure you that you will not be “difficult to recall,” not for me 🙂 Thank you for this unforgettable read <3
