  “The Death of a Mind”

 

He could feel it

slipping away

his grasp

loosing

on his hold

of his sanity

he wondered

if he would

miss it,

if it had

as much value

as people are

made out to

believe it does

not that it

really mattered

his control

of his lucid

thoughts

kept getting

shorter,

long

and then longer

breaks

consisting of

rambling and

unconnected ideas

taking up

more and more

space

in his mind

a mind

which has been

giving him

less and less

cooperation lately,

he thinks about

a school boy crush

he once had

is her name

and face

soon to be

forgotten

replaced with

blurry images

and words

he’ll never be able

to find

he starts to

write down

her description

before realizing

it wasn’t going to

matter

he couldn’t

outsmart time

he could see

his fate

out their

waiting for him

he turns off his

television set

and stretches out

on his old

but very well kept

sofa

closes his eyes

and wades through

his memories

and when he

finds

one of those

uniquely special

moments

he takes it apart

and relives

each and every

detail

before moving on

in search of

another memory

to remake

his own

he keeps this up

for a couple of

hours

before his mind

gets lost in a

hole

prompting him

to sit up

switch on his

television set

and start to

continuously

flip through the

channels

till

many hours

later

when he is

quietly

led away

to bed…
