“You are someone else, I am still right here”

Been writing about Alzheimer’s and memory. Something that I might post here, or maybe elsewhere.

Meanwhile, listen to this moving cover by Johnny Cash of Nine Inch Nail’s Hurt.

I wear this crown of shit
Upon my liar’s chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

I think this may be the most fitting description of the crazy mixed-up, kaleidoscopic world of broken memories.


One response to ““You are someone else, I am still right here”

  1. Very telling! Like many, I am probably in the early stages of that life changing, life stealing, disease.
