Memento Mori

Desperately trying to recall

a memory of more than a moment

the before

the after

Any small detail that exists 

outside of that one still frame 

in your mind


The slow sick thought

that what you to be 

an authentic memory 

may only be a memory 

of a photo you once saw

of that moment


You know it all happened

but you wonder if possibly 

you've lost your goddamn mind

Still, you hope you were just too busy

living in the moment

to remember

to pause 

to make a memory
