A Bipolar Cliche

When I don't sleep or take my meds as I
am told by my psychiatrist, I hear
the sound of voices drawing near and near.
It is a scary feeling to come by
when you're bipolar and you want to die.
Most of the time  it is a life of fear
for me, just always facing what's too clear--
that my life does not amount to a fly's.
My life's so meaningless to me it seems;
if I could I would end it right away,
but that'd be taking it to such extremes,
I suppose. Instead, I just read and pray
and write poems of brighter, happier themes.
I swear--I'm such a bipolar cliché!

    Never leave us...I've only just discovered your poetry and don't want to miss out on what's to come! Your life most certainly amounts to something when you can share writing such as this. K

    Thank you, Kaye, for your words of sympathy and empathy and for enjoying my poems--but there is no need to worry as I am doing much better these days.--Ngoc
