How Easily I Lose Things

I’m endlessly surprised,
At my ability to lose something,

Within the space of 10 seconds;

I’m great at not losing things over time,
β€”I’m highly organised,
Everything has its place,
And it’s easy to locate everything;

But when things are en-route,
Between such places,
β€”There’s the loophole,
They can go missing!

I just had my phone,
With me in the car,
Went to the toilet,
Now everything’s on-pause;

This happened a lot, last year,
Whilst living in the car,
One second was holding something,
The nextβ€” it no longer existed!

In the car,
β€”A highly-constrained space,
I didn’t believe it was possible,
But it kept happening,

And it’s highly disappointing,
Because I was so busy,
And happy,

It’s just hysterical at this point,
β€”So thought I’d offer some comfort,
To anyone else out there,
With this same (insane) issue!

  1. I will tell my better-half he is not alone!
    I can’t even begin to tell you how often he loses something during the course of a day.
    I think it happens to old people like him. (heck , he’s not old , just 39 and holding!)

    1. Haha! Great, I’m glad that somebody might feel some comfort from it! Thank you Margie πŸ˜„. He’s 39? Haha, was not expecting that after you said he was old!

    2. And oh yeah, ADHD means you have the short-term memory of somebody much older! Don’t ask what happens when I DO get older!


    1. Yeah, I get that :). For me it’s just the total ridiculousness and impossibility of losing something within such a short space of time and space, and how much time gets lost over it.

    2. As well as when it makes you miss things, or be late for things. It’s had terrible knock-on consequences for me at times!

      1. Oh, nice! Awesome to have inspired one of your poems! I’m not aware of having inspired any so far, anywhere πŸ˜„.
