Written by Jacob Ibrag

Memories fading, can’t remember your face.

Just the feeling of temptation, it’s the things you

would say. Forever is a wives tale, this mind is about

to meet its end. It all fades to black till there’s nothing

left. Every now and then I’d smell a familiar scent. For a

few moments at a time, I remember everything. You’re

right next to me, holding onto my hand. Please stay

a little longer. I don’t want to forget, again.

    You know, for some reason alzheimers came to mind. I felt this to be their voice.
