Shut up.
Shh.
Quiet.
Don’t. Say.  A n y t h i n g .

“Are you okay?”
I’m dying.
“I’m fine.”

Scream.
Cry.
P an i c .

“What’s wrong?”
Everything.
“Nothing.”

Close the window.
Open it.
Close it.
Open it again.
No, stop.
Close it.
Good.

“What’s wrong with you?”
I’m losing control.
I’m empty.
I’m dying.
I am Bipolar Disorder.

… “I don’t know.”
This is a quick poem i made on my experience with Bipolar Disorder with Psychotic Features. thanks for reading.. comments? :)

Yeah, that about nails it on the head when it comes to Bipolar. Both me and my Fiance are and...well lets just say our lives have been a living hell when it comes to family and friends and the only solace we seem to find, when our Bipolar doesnt act up, is when we are alone together...otherwise we always have to watch ourselves. Try to control it around others...Its very stressful and tiring...and it makes you feel a hell of a lot older than you already are...And both my Fiance and I are only 21!

It varies from person to person. It's just a terrifying, horrific disorder sometimes, and other times not so bad.
I can't really explain it. It's quite complex.
Thank you so much! :)

Well, it makes you unique so that is good but it causes pain so that is bad xD

You are honestly the best author I have ever read! (:

I've had so many days like this in my life. I like all the short lines, it gives a feeling of being rushed and confused. Awesome work!

Oddly similar to your last poem I read; Schizophrenia.

I know, shame on me for making them so similar.
I really couldn't think of anything new for this. This was about one of my little paranoid moments i had a couple days ago.

:) Yeah, I remember reading a poem somewhere that reminded me of this one. I found it and I realized that you write both of them. :lmao: I almost thought someone was copying the original poem, but I looked at the name and I saw it was the same person lol. Your poetry is very good, though.
