my old memories
are long gone and
i cannot make memories
for more than a day

every book i read
is like deja vu
a faint thread
a slight sense of connection
but that too falls
my memory fails me
but brings me
a new day everyday

in ways it is good
i can cry today
and not remember tomorrow
but i can love today
and not remember tomorrow
that thought hurts me today
but will not hurt me tomorrow

i am reborn every day
a reminder of death from yesterday

  1. @beanay – thanks, though it’s actually written from a perspective of a person who has a condition that will only allow them to make memories for a day. someone with extremely short-term memory. hah, i don’t know if that makes it better or worse. =)
