 Romantic Notions By Ivy Rose

thief
you rummage
through the hours
snatch away today
abduct memories
of sons and daughters
pull drawers open
throwing relationships
on the floor
memories scattered
everywhere
you take light
from the eyes
leave vacant stares
you rob family
of the person
you steal away spirit
and you take your time
snatching one piece
after another
even the ability to eat
before you're through
what's left is a skeleton
with dry bones
eroding in the Sun.

**Dedicated to all Alzheimer's victims**
