memory gaps

recalls lapse

panic saps

……      my reason

.

clear lines

cloudy times

mental trips

hanging on

……      by fingertips

.

searching for a name

……      in the confines of my brain

.

and the more i stress

……      the worse it gets

The Merry go Round

Merry go Round

The Merry go Round

Laughing children on the ride,
Shouting, waving, being merry;
Parents standing round outside,
Smiling, calling, cameras clicking.

Up and down went the horses,
Round and round went the ride,
Faster, faster, screamed the kiddies,
And a knob was pressed to oblige.

The cries of joy became cries of fear
As panic filled them all;
Parents, children and bystanders
Realised it was out of control.

I jerked awake from my sleep
Relieved it was only a scare,
But next morning I was told by my children
Their school was going to the fair.

Panic


Panic

My mouth was dry, I could not speak
I shook all over like a leaf
Hands a-shake and legs like jelly
I walked with knees that were quite wobbly.

Quavering like a geriatric
(I know I’m old, but I’m not there yet),
I raised the phone to call for help,
And help arrived, I’m pleased to say,
Within the shortest time that day.

They had a look around the house,
Took statements in their little books
Then climbed back slowly in their van
And drove away with sombre looks.

Months went by without a word
And I thought that we’d hear no more
Until one evening they came back
With the culprit, cuffed secure!
