As Memories Fade

Drowning in a pool of my inner self

Unable to remember, to see clearly.

Time rob me of all I knew, everything I hold dear gone,

Erased, like the dew that slips through at day break

So does memories of you.

I held them once; your memories,

They kept me through the years.

Fading slowing, I tried to hold on.

I felt them now!

Deep down in the grey remains, I see your face

Smiling, bidding me to remember

To reach for what’s no longer there.

I reached out and touched loneliness

I smiled; knowing I can’t miss what’s not there.

Emptiness has filled the void where you once lived.

I knew you once!

I knew you when time was on my side

When promises burst open

And I fell deeply In love with you.

 

Have you ever watch someone you love, loose them self to Dementia. I think it’s one of the hardest thing thing you could ever go through.

No Longer Fear

dark_forest_girl_by_roltirirang

I no longer fear the night
Or the day
That arises from the dust
To snuffed out
What’s left of my
Will to survive
I welcome the
Pain with open arms
Fall into me
Break me
Ripped from me
The veins that
Penetrate each vessel
Filling my womb with the truth
Let it burn the darkness
From my lips
The reckless logic of defeat
Come now and save me
I need saving
I need your guiding hands
To walk me Into the light©
