forgetful (continuous haiku)

What if you lost it, 

Small at first but widening 

the gaps in your mind. 


memories you lose  

a sinking ship fulls of holes 

the holes in your life  


the world lost to you

maybe then you would get it 

if remembering


was still an option 

but It's not for my heart 

haunted by this feeling 


that I have lost much  

but am unable to recall 

anything any more 


as my mind falls away 

and memory fails me again 

repeating words again 


forgetting it all 

is ruining what is left 

of my tired life.
