Today’s poem is about an elderly man in some sort of hospice or facility at the edge between reality and dementia and is a very sad poem. It reminded me a little of the movie “The Notebook” when I wrote it. Thanks to the following people on twitter for the 7 random words (in blue) today:
Thoughts tangled like a gossamer weave
Struggling not to forget her again
Each memory a laboring construction
False memories like email spam
Make the task even harder
Your barely clear thoughts are
Held together by a weakening bracket
Was she your daughter or your wife?
Her sensitivity would indicate the latter
Was this a hello or a goodbye?
Like a star playing a cameo in a movie
She was in your day for a brief moment
And then she was gone
Would you remember her tomorrow?
Would she ever come back?
Did she say she would?
What did she say her name was?
For now you remember though
You remember how much you loved her
