Disordered Memory
JoelJosol

You never looked at me
 1
the same way again
 2
 
 
even the smile
 3
is not for me
 4
 
 
but I will never tire
 5
giving my reply
 6
 
 
for as often as you ask
 7
who I am.
 8
 
 
Your mind broke up
 9
like pieces of a puzzle
 10
 
 
each neuron link disconnecting
 11
with another
 12
 
 
all former paths broken,
 13
their traces washed away.
 14
 
 
Whatever remained couldn't hold
 15
memories of me
 16
 
 
not enough links
 17
for imprinting
 18
 
 
from the day
 19
without good-bye
 20
 
 
you slipped away
 21
taking with you
 22
 
 
all these pieces
 23
of yourself.
