The Troublesome Pain of Memory Lane

A silent and dusty mind,

Meaning memories are hard to find.

As cobwebs cling to jumbled thoughts,

With a last attempt to rack your brain,

Searching for a seat within the train

Of thought that seems to have departed,

Leaving you in lands uncharted.

 

It never used to be like this.

Remembering faces and names,

Now a struggle to reminisce.

Cast in thick fog,

A grey mist that sticks

Causing thoughts to slowly slip

Out of sight, thus, you forget,

As if your life has been reset.

 

Until the switch is finally flicked,

A flash of reflection firmly gripped.

And for this moment,

Although the light is brief,

Can you feel memories sweet relief?
