edge of dementia

Nothing looks like anything anymore

shapes are being disorganised

usualness dislocated

unsure of where it should be


in these strange period's

thoughts are groundless


it will feel as though you have

woken up asleep


everything normal

seems to have been withheld

slowly you are losing ownership of yourself


in this place of uncertainty

everyone else belongs to someone else

there is no safe place to store your trust


confusion is being allowed

to squander itself

and what is being disarranged here


are your roots in sanities garden

this is where we think keeping ones mind moderately active can be a help. As in reading and writing being two examples

It reminds me of when I was a child, if I came home after school by another (unusual) route the interior of the house felt odd, a strange feeling of awkward newness. It would fade after some minutes. Your poem reminded me of it. Tommy
