Falling

Im falling into

a deep abyss,

blind blackness

smothering my air.

My hold loosens

on fairys’ golden thread,

my hands slipping

toward it’s visible end.

I release,

as burning pain

breaks my hold….

Free falling,

I cannot touch the sides

as I bullet

down the abyss

toward Misery’s black hole.

To slow downward spiral…

To grasp the golden rope…

To see glowing light….

To fly upward

with gossamer wings……

∞ π ∞

Sometimes I feel like I am free falling into a black hole…….

Bipolar Ecstacy (Pleides)

bipolar fairies

Broken dreams, deep despair

Bought with false promises

Bitten twice, hindsight feeds

Bitter consuming thought

Banish saddened pining

Bright effervescent mood

Bipolar ecstasy

This poem focuses on unconstructed thoughts and feelings associated with bipolar disorder based on traumatic life events in my past.

Pleides Poetic form: 7 lines and 6 syllables, the beginning letter of the sentence starts with the same letter as the title.

Restore Plea

Layers of sadness forestall calm thought

Release blighted day to bright tomorrow

Renew amnesiac regret

Unglue morbid sorrow

Clear accounts deep in dept

Restore time, now stalled

Unseal eyes with future blind

Remove inky black-walled

    TORTURE—

Renew happy hopes, once mine

Often I wish that I could go back in time and erase mistakes.  I was full of these feelings when I wrote this poem.

 

Depression (Senryu)

Enclosing darkness

Black hued walls suffocate life

Depression chokes light

 

This was an attempt to, in a very few powerful words, describe the blackness of bipolar depression.

Senryu:  the style is the same as Haiku but the theme is related to feelings and relationships.
