End Stage!
Rendering physical to
Robotic malfunction.
Victims speechless!
Fear pumping,
Returning to knowing.
Eyes close to living.
Teeth grind!
Frail hands tap at
Life/'/s struggle
Turns to the
Slowly, opens
The exit door.
Gasps move
Once rigid jaw
And she has gone.

I wince at this
it bites down hard
like a clamp
where we go
even when...
I feel sad in this
instance, within
all its domain.
And I say,
sorry and sad
I do feel along
with you best I
can though it
never would

I was a kid
stuck in the hospital
once, in a wheel
chair, sitting
for an Xray
and there she
was this dignified
woman, just
gone by
senile dementia
they called it.
But you have
and somebody
is somebody
with a soul.
I am sorry
for your loss.

Dementia is what I call Satan/'/s Blessing. My mom had it and my aunt (her sister) had it. I know how hard it can be. Anna, I am so sorry you and your family had to endure this. Huge hug.

This poem is very emotive and hits straight to the heart.

Again, big hugs!

A difficult topic made moreso by your personal experience. But you give us a front row seat to the inevitable decline, and your write is so compelling we cannot turn away from the tragedy approaching.
A fond farewell relived in no uncertain terms. I wish you the peace you seek.

It/'/s a hard and bitter stinging subject to write about but you have done the subject justice at least.
It reminds us all that the mind is a fragile thing.
Sad for your suffering :(

Please accept my sincerest condolences, this illness is merciless. This hits close to home as my family is dealing with this now.

The decline happened quite fast. A blessing and a curse combined, I think.

You captured this end stage quite well. Thanks for sharing.
