The Portrait

0_8cf0b_afd6b8f8_S

Shades of light blue and pastels faded

Tattered by the disease which had eaten its way through their smiles

Once a soft warm memory now coldly corroded and ugly

Confusion adhered to her pain, but no explanation lay wanting

None was necessary

Her heart rampant with fury but crushed by pity

A tendered compassion recalled the faces and history

She consoled her heart, for not all was lost!
