Strange and Silly Senility

Sometimes I am in denial
I'm starting to go senile
Forgetting things more and more
My minds closing up its door
My kids and hubby have a laugh
Having fun on my behalf
Turning it into a game
To lessen my fear and shame
There's no chance I'll be improving
They keep me happy with amusing
Stories of my grand adventures
Like forgetting my new dentures
In a box on the cab seat
Making it so hard to eat
Or buying a pretty dress
So that I can look my best
Getting lots of silly stares
Without my bra and underwear
Food shopping does not go well
My family can never tell
What is going to be made
Home made soup or braised lampshade
A chore that I should never do
Is washing the clothes for you
Red and white clothes joined in bleach
Turns them pink just like a peach
My antics is what you'll see
Every day you are with me
My family is never down
When they have a live in clown
Acting crazy and so weird
From a disease everyone fears

    lol Robin, I totally resonated with this poem. With my many long years of substance abuse, I have no doubt my brain is riddled with holes and gaps. I have a terrible memory and very limited concentration, attention and focus, which is probably why most of my poems are so short lol. Great piece, sweet pea! <3

    i love the way you possess..literally like in a possession, different characters and become them, and not only that, see but feel the world through them, it is a real gift that you have..make sure ur words reach more people, its like the universe wants to tell mankind something and has hand picked a few to be its narrators...this is not flattery, it is my sincere opinion
