Lost in Space

Somewhere in the space between my ears

A disease engulfed my mind these years

 

Causing confusion, memory loss

Distorting perceptions is the cost

 

Like a rocket lost in outer space

My conscious mind cannot keep the pace

 

My daily life is full of black holes

Swinging my moods between two hard poles

 

My universe has shrunk to my home

Stars and moons can hear my nightly moans

 

I dread the sleepless nights watching time

Lost in my thoughts I can’t calm my mind

 

Parkinson’s disease will run its course

I still try to fight feeling remorse

 

My creativity keeps me going

Art and poetry I am showing
