The Bipolar Flow

This blog entry is a creative narrative based upon the experience of bipolar disorder and may contain triggering content for some.

Flying high, then swooping low

It's the cycle that you know

You can do anything touch the sky

feel invincible but you're just a liar

When the night comes, there is no sleep

laughing loudly to weeping in a heart beat

When the docs ask are you okay,

you say "I'm really great, thanks",

watch them grab their slate.

"She's so excited" they all exclaim

"Incredibly positive" not knowing the

chemicals that have hijacked my brain

All the laughter, chatter and dancing

may seem fun at first

then hours pass, then days

weeks go by, even months at worst

To the urges of my being

I'm sick of being a slave

I'm begging on my knees*

ready to medicate.

& then day by day

you loosen up your grip

ready to say goodbye

& I know you're already waiting

for the next time I slip

that's not before the low tides

they return and you take a hit

they sweep you off your feet

until you're looking for a fix.
