A forgotten woman

She sits in the gloom
Shallow breaths
Exploring the creases of an image

Smiling faces fill the frame
Tender glances
Unspoken words
A sense of childlike happiness

The bare room
Overflows with rainbows
Golden hues of sunsets
And silver tinges of forgotten nights

Laughter envelops her
Surrounding her with
Whispers of enchantment
Gleeful contentment

Icy fingers mercifully unwrap
Flooding torrents of warmth
Paralyse her body
As a gentle tug eases her from mortality
