Alzheimers

Alzheimers
Hello, I see your face, it seems familiar. 
I know you’re friendly in my sense-spared sensory. 
A science undiscovered in the veil of speculation 
All animals have the same marvels, a beehive of anti-separation
A mechanism of creation, the working parts of intricate design 
Chime, no rhyme
Just whispering knocks of air echoing perfectly in streams of geometric beams 
Bounce empty like the tap and basin destitute from salvation 
Overgrown vegetation conceals its foundations
A passing memory murmurs a smirk; for one moment you’re fighting its curse 
Overdosed on modern chemical commerce 
Your fingers are touching the hands of your births 
Then lapsed.  Gripped.  Tension. Insanity of the absurd.
Some moments are worse. 
You’re living a lost, quasi-dead life; erasing the fear of death. 
Hopeful for life and communication 
Grasping at life stations 
Your cable of truth, its truth your best 
It’s truth you've lost 
Another day dawns. 
Pills. 
Buzzing away.
Confusion.
Ignored.
