Mind Fading Away

Mind fading away

Ravaged by illness and age

Fate of so many

Such a sad state of affairs

Watching those we love forget

Feeling so helpless

We’ve become total strangers

Passing in the night

Frustration steeped in sadness

Becomes our permanent state

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

  1. The sadness and the frustration truly are mutual as your choice of the word “our” in the last line conveys. Thank you for such a fine example of the volumes that can be suggested by a single word.
