From Within

The circle …widens
Delusions …stirring
Wallow … swallowing
Reality …nightmares
Pursue …dreams of
Yesteryear …silenced
Forever …gone …the
Abyss … pulls
From within!

Bitter Road

Obsessing thoughts
Through  the day
Lady Blue keeps
Lucid Lucy  away
Delusions pave
The road
To the abyss
Bitter and cold.

The Keeper

Memories …turn on …memory lane
Two steps further …promenade
Four steps back …cascading
Abyss … keeper …serenading.

DAY AFTER DAY …ABYSS

Sitting still, frowning, starring
Boring holes in the floor
Unable …to distract you
Negative  outcome …in store
Delusions … in the way
The same …day after day
One day follows another
In the abyss  …I SHUDDER!

No Illusions

Blink of an eye
Whispers of time
Thousands of light years
The Alzheimer’s climb
No cutting corners
Flat out …confusion
I’m aware … your limits
For me …no illusions!
Time  runs … away
Memories … too
Alzheimer’s abyss
Consuming …you.

Broken – Memories

Like … broken glass

Memories …aren’t spared

Fall …in the abyss

A …NIGHTMARE!

The Sum Of All Fears

The abyss …gobbles them up 

Few  memories survive 

Illusions …delusions …appear 

The sum of all fears …has arrived.

CHOO CHOO …LADY BLUE!

The conductor …confusion
The trip to …abyss
The ticket …punched early
Wait …think about this!
Your thoughts … tangled
Faded memories …not clear
You didn’t order this, Mother dear
No one else going? You’d be alone!
One way ticket, forever postpone!
It’s not your choice
What’s happening to you
Let’s … wave the train
CHOO CHOO …LADY BLUE!

If we can pull an invisible cord for truckers to honk as they pass, maybe we can choo choo the Alzheimer’s train to KEEP ON GOING, DON’T STOP FOR MOTHER! I’m just thinking!

Fine Tuned

Alzheimer’s …fine tuned
A running machine
I’m gasping for air
You’re angry …mean.

I’ll wait it out
You’ll come back soon
Away from the abyss
The lagoon!

Running Races

Cars race furiously
Around a track
First one …wins
The leader of the pack.

Alzheimer’s …a race
You don’t want to win
At the end of the track
The abyss …further in!
