Forgetful Life

Staring into the distance

I can’t remember what I was talking about

I can’t remember the conversation I just had

Or what I was trying to do

I’ve forgotten the meeting I was supposed to attend

Had to make an excuse when I realised

I forgot to check the list I made

That would have helped me remember

I can’t focus on the conversation between my friends

Trying to dip into it when my brain allows me to

I nod along trying to seem interested

When in reality I don’t know what they are saying

I feel life passing me by

And I’m just an observer

Merely dropping in on the world when I’m able to focus

For those few minutes or hours

I accept I’m forgetful

But this is far worse than simple forgetfulness

This is losing parts of my life

That I will never get back
