Isn’t it odd to go to a place with the intent to immortalize a moment –
Without knowing what that moment will be like?
Will nerves climb your slippery skin?
Or will your stomach somersault?
Or will butterflies lift you away?
Or maybe you won’t feel anything at all
The moment was too grand
The moment was too bland
Maybe you won’t remember how to feel,
Or you’ll try to feel what isn’t there.
But nevertheless, you’ll stand there, smile in hand, and the deed will be done.
You’ll always revisit that moment –
You and your smile
The utopian duo
Who fooled themselves
And embodied their great expectations
