vanishing echoes

Top Story - April 2024

either i am growing closer or slipping further away.

choosing is not an option,

least of all making myself known.

i can't break through the barrier.

please tell me someone will remember

so i can fade in peace.

ease me down and lie if you must.

    “ i can't break through the barrier” was a line that stuck out to me Alivia, and this reminded me of growing old and struggling with memory loss.
