losing you

i lost a little more of you today

there must be a wormhole in the bathroom 

because when you walked out 

you couldn't remember who i was

i showed you the television 

where we had just been watching one of your favorite shows

i gestured to the couch where you were sitting only a few mintues ago

i begged,



but nothing brought back the glint of recognition in your eyes

This poem is about: 
My family
