Dementia - Poem by Fred Babbin

Kronos. God of Time and Entropy,
Father of Dementia the monster,
thief, eraser of memory,
who has robbed my love from me
my now hollow woman.

Kronos has attacked our eyes and ears
but his daughter has attacked
my woman's brain.
Would that she could do the same
for me,
for my memories have so much pain.
while my love has none
and I have hundreds if not one.
So we wait for our lives
to be done.
