Not even a memory

Imagine

A black hole

That consumes

Everything.

First

your name and identity

Then your memory,

relationships,

ideas

and personality.

Gone.

extinguished.

Imagine

no impression

left

behind.

no shadow

no footprint

no nothing.

And to emphasise the extent of the void

take the words,

writings and memories

of

everyone

you have ever known

and those who have known them

throughout time

and

Wipe them out too.

void

  1. A frightening prospect of utter blankness and blackness.
    Hold my hand gently, speak softly of everyday things and happy times, smooth my forehead lightly, sing sweet songs quietly and play lovely music ,perhaps the dawn chorus of birdsong. Hope of comforting for both sufferer and carer.
