What If? by Nemma Wollenfang

What if we no longer remembered where we grew up? Our first school? First kiss? That college road-trip? Places we’d worked? That cruise to… erm… 

What if it spread amongst us? Like a sickness? Stealing all that we are? 

What if it got progressively worse? 

Last month? Last week? Yesterday

No? Nothing?! Not even a spark?

What if the world fell apart? With humanity pushed right to the brink?

What if someone discovered a cure?! A way to save us all? And what if this saviour failed to write it down fast enough… that thing that they… found… 

What if?
