Fractured

my mind
is not whole
my mind
is fractured

parts of me
exist now
parts of me
lived then

persevering
into the future
until I am dust

time chips away
at memories
a failed algorithm
an infinite loop

the past
indistinct
the present
daunting
the future
unimaginable

who knew?

masks
epidemics
storms
fires

makes me glad
I have nobody
to leave it to

but even so

fractured
though I am

I am still

regardless of
past failures
forgotten lives
dim recollections

fractured
though I am

I am still

depression
weighs down

good days
like needles
in haystacks

occasional
contentment
surprising

but even so

fractured
though I am

I am still

decisions confound
indecisions abound

time fritters away
days recede rapidly

insomnia lurks
in the recesses
of the darkness

but even so

fractured
though
I am

I am still
