It is a lonely night
he makes accusations
I can’t answer to them
I say, “You are right.”
It is the best answer
It only heats him more
yet to deny is worse.

He’s fallen off the cliff
no reality, no sanity
it is sad, it is tense, it
is frightening to see 
how his brain is ravaged
all of a sudden unexpected
when a week ago was fine

He is grim and angry and
not rooted in reality, he thinks
things are as they are not and
I am afraid for him, for me too
in this insane circus of a brain
gone awry with plaques and
tangles and night

  1. I understand your fear, Diane. It sounds like there has suddenly been a big change.
