dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille Monday #147 -A Stolen Existence


The dVerse challenge for today is to write a Quadrille, 44 words which must include the word eye in the main body of the poem.

His hearing is mostly gone now
His memory consistently fails him
He no longer recognizes his loved ones
He only remembers his first language
It’s almost impossible to understood him
His eyes hold secrets of his failing health
And his frustration with life now

44 words

  1. As my mother faded from life with Alzheimer’s and Lewy Body Dementia I remember most of all the ‘blank’ look in her eyes … though she remained breathtakingly beautiful. A lovely write.
