Failing Mind by Ann Christine Tabaka


Blue days
Black nights
In between all is lost
I search the ceiling
And stare at walls
Time stands still
I find myself counting pennies once again
Where did I leave off?
You extend your hand
I do not feel it
My thoughts are shapeless
My mind is like some amorphous bubble
I do not know where I left it
Blue days
Black nights
And so it starts again

    • Thank you so much Mark. I watched this happen to my mother before she left us. This is what it feels like.
