Thorny Poetry - 14. Hypomanic

This is your brain on Bipolar II...

the constant noise

in my head, voices

they’re all mine

 

they push me this way and that

tell me what to do

but won’t let me do it

 

it’s like a storm and

i want to sleep, but

i can’t with all this noise

 

and endless, endless writing

stories

music

poetry

 

should be grateful

for the inspiration

 

should be grateful

for the songs

 

should be grateful

 

but my brain is spinning, singing, slinging thoughts

like endless dreaming but awake

and i can’t focus, only listen

but there’s too much noise to hear

 

still, words keep coming, running through

my head like dancers, going to

some place where paper catches some of them

 

not all of them, but

some

 

should be grateful

 

but i crave the silence

This is a fantastic poem. It picks me up as the wind takes an Autumn leaf, whirls me about, and sets me down again at silence. Excellent.

Thank you. Pretty happy with it myself, really... it’s not every time I manage to express just what I’m feeling, but I think I did this time.
