total blackout!


the journey is ending
the head is the first to
signal to me that all
would soon be over

this hair has turned from
black to grey to white
as fast as the memory
is greying into nothingness

they turn white totally white
as sheets of my memory are

but oh god, what a contrast
it would soon be - a total backout!

    I hope you smiled when you wrote this. It probably is one of my biggest fears, and all we can do about it is smile....and hope for the best
