Helen Gaudin


Sorrow's Thorn In The Faded Memories


The barbed wound in the softness of melancholy
Yearning for a life long gone

Beauty decayed
No longer shining bright
Memory betrayed

Hope, lost in the hidden recesses' of the mind
The sharp pain, knowing for a moment you cannot remember
Sliding back, into the blurring colour of the faded memories

Sorrow's thorn
