A poem that expresses the experiences of bipolar disorder, depression and mania.


 

My body is made of iron,
And lead and stone.
I am not made to move,
Nor to breathe,
Nor to feel the depth of love and light
Beyond my own bewildering sorrow.
 
Fly me high over here,
Over these fog-leaden lands,
Where mists curl over shrewd cries,
And hide us poor beings
Underneath our sticks and stones.
 
Lay me down from here.
No, Ill lay myself down.
 
The smoke curling its wings under feet,
And raising my soul above here,
These moors, these cries and rainbows,
Hell, fury and wind.
Smoke gathering me up beneath its salient wings,
And leaving me
Amidst a wind of changing fevers
 
 
Here
Are the flowers adorning the edge
Of sand-laid seas
Beheld in my inspiration.
Where sunlight leads life into fire,
And where the dawning of me begins.
It is here I rush towards.
And within me,
Lay this fever,
This madness,
Fury.

Wow, you have a tremendous power inside you that you must be proud of. Your words pour out a spirit that is alive with energy that seems at times overwhelming but then satisfying. I particularly like:

Where sunlight leads life into fire,
And where the dawning of me begins.
It is here I rush towards.
Reviewed by Connie Faust 3/31/2011
I admire your writing. Great expression of your feelings. There is bi-polar disorder in my family, so i know something of the difficulties you face. Poetry seems a great outlet. You are a good example of triumphing over hardship. Best wishes.
and
Blessings,
Connie
