Dementia – A Poem By Denise Gleason

Dementia

In my life, many scary things I faced

But, Dementia was the thing that put me in my place

When in Dementia’s presence

You must bow to the one in charge, like a peasant. 

Before you go into its lair put on your armor 

And realize you are only a glorified snake charmer  

Cloning its visions and mood so that you can negotiate your position 

Holding yourself, so that you don’t slip into abyss and forget your original mission. 

Just when you feel like he is about to swallow you up and you begin to taste the bile

You get a brief glympse of a wonderful memory or a positive current moment which makes you smile

The many faces of Eve 

can’t compete with Dementia’s ability to deceive 

When you leave it’s presence

You neither win or lose 

Just remember to wash off the slime and not allow it to cling to you.

Denise Gleason December 2019
