Sugars

I can't remember things I should
My thoughts are blurred and that's not good
Recovering thoughts locked in my brain
Is a strenuous task and all in vain

Words dangle just beyond my grasp
A friend has coined this "Synapse Lapse"
Is it a sign that I'm not sane?
Or, toxic sugars on my brain?

Some living brain cells still hold on
Hang by a thread and almost gone
These cells I should not over tax
The few I've got I must relax

My mind's now in a neutral zone
The one cell left is all alone
Are there yet memories in my head?
Nope! Toxic sugars killed them dead!

    hmmm, I am seeing that I already commented to a lot of your poems on the recent poetry page of yours. Let me go back in time and see how well I was doing on seeing your poems. Don't know how I lost contact with you. Must be you were not commenting back to me. I wish I had the time to keep up with all the good poets.

    Thank you ilene. I've got to blame my memory lapses on something may as well be sugars.

    pd do you enjoy sugars as much as I do? I was recently told that a spoon full of sugar can seriously compromise your immune system for 24 hrs. Haven't confirmed it yet. Will that deter me from eating my sweets? I think not. Happy New Year.

    Thank you Andrea for your wonderful comment. Oh, yes loved your poem. And the last line "They're both the same. They're both the same." Speaks volumes.

    Thank you Rollo. A dear friend of mine Nancy coined that phrase and let me use it in my poem.

    Thank you Toquyen. Perhaps it was my stomach you heard growling for more sugar. I remember a T-Shirt I had once. Printed on it was the message. "Feed me chocolate and nobody gets hurt" It was just for fun. I couldn't hurt a fly.
