LOST THOUGHTS Started out alright but as it formed failed to make a connection losing all perception Thought formed so quickly, easily, then just as simple floated away Felt so great ready to celebrate then slips away as pen is put to pad,trying to recall its inception Playing through phrases, floundering about just dallying with words of the day Short term loss becomes normal ,but failing of the inner soul brings on another dimension Lifetimes of grasping for answers slowly slips away,holding on becomes futile much to our dismay Wit like a razor brought down to flat dull and rusted,past time to rethink prevention Sifting through remnants is always distorted will the whole story be reported,viewing past in a disarray Wait what if it is happening and we just don't know,abandoned functions will not know they needed correction Daily ritual takes it's toll but life passes on ,we make the way whether it is for today,tomorrow or yesterday .R.C. Memory & our mind is about all we have so if it slips can be a true life changing experience, Although was not the first thought ,I "feel" many here might relate to the world of grasping for answers ,deja vus and unfortunately maybe giving up sometimes for the short term answers. a revolving door > My best to you thanks for reading Rick
