The Experiment (100 Words)


The Experiment (100 Words)

Jackson walked through the lonely streets.

Wanting to learn more about his past, he volunteered for the dangerous experiment.

Scientists advised him of everything that could go wrong. They never suspected everything would go right.

Total recall, perfect memory; some said it couldn’t be accomplished.

Yet, long lost memories rushed through him like light through a prism.

Lost loves, toddler falls, even prenatal sensations.

He lived trapped in an eternal state of nostalgia.

They told him he would recall every memory.

No one warned him he would relive every pain.

Jackson finally understood some things are meant to be forgotten.

      1. It depends on how much I want to know the past, how much I need answers. However, if I am already happy to begin with (with the present), I see no reason to rock the boat, so to speak. πŸ™‚


  1. Ok – 3rd times the charm.. Won’t let me comment on this..
    Wow – I really love this post – makes me think about all I wish for and I’m happy I love my life and appreciate the moments I’m in..


  2. “Trapped in an eternal state of nostalgia.” Some things really are better off left alone. It seems he sacrificed his present in finding his past. What an awful state in which to be trapped. Oddly enough it’s almost like Alzheimer’s in a way as those affected by the disease can no longer recall things that happen only moments or days prior.
