Photograph.

It's been a few weeks - maybe even a month, since I deleted all your photos from my Google drive in an attempt to erase you from my life. The thing about all these apps is they like to remind you of things.


A birthday.

An anniversary.

A memory.

A highlight reel.


Today it reminded me of our trip to Maui. And even though there was no trace of your face left, the photographs didn't look right. The void outshined the sunsets, and your eyes were missing from the sea. All I see are pictures of me.


Alone.

On the beach.

In the jungle.

On a catamaran, having brunch.

By myself.


You weren't in any of the photos, and this reminded me of how much you're still there even more.
