Oh no! I knew based on the week's theme and the title that I had heartbreak in store, but I still wasn't expecting that twist! What a way to elevate a simple game of Pong. 

I also appreciated the way the "blacked out" memory blocks fade so that a scene can crystallize in their place, symbolizing how the poet clings to these memories even as his mind starts to fail him. A stroke of visual eloquence.

I've played the other games you've published on this site, and I gotta say your choice of background music is always on point!

One thing you might want to know though: when I press SPACE, instead of restarting the game seems to bug out. The player's paddle gets frozen at the top of the screen and I have to manually refresh the page to get it to work again.
