Lost To Dementia

Night of the dark soul, demons infiltrate the gap between self and oblivion. Your mind's a fragile dysfunctional place under constant siege, and cannot be saved. As reality morphs into a dream, sanity slowly starts to slip away. A part of you is lost to dementia, where confusion lurks behind every thought. Hope's been depleted only time exists, and your frightened heart cries out for a friend. (Free Verse) 4/17/2015

Some what speechless, don't know what to say. This hits so close to home for me for my mother, suffers from dementia and this write was spot on what I see her suffer with. A deep introspective touch for me and an emotionally sad one. Thanks for sharing Emile. This helped to remind me how important of a friend for her I can and need to be.....Sharon G.

Having a loved one go through this is almost as difficult as on them. A very moving piece you have penned Emile. 7
