I am woman, hear me cry
With bloodcurdling screams as I slowly die
Pulled down into sadness, I travel due south
With no hopeful words to spew from my mouth
Buried deep within my shell
I torture myself within my own hell
Of self-loathing deeds, I wilt before I bloom
Fading away in my own world of gloom
I take a little pill and travel due north
To wash away the tears and push myself forth
I am Bipolar, see my moods shift
From melancholy to euphoric, I am whip-lashed in the rift

    Marilyn, Thank you so much for sharing such a personal insight into your life. As someone who suffers from the same affliction I am all too intimate with your demons. If you have a moment read my 2 part poem, 'Me, Myself and I". Be sure to read part 1 first. I thank you again for pain shared is pain diminished. Scott...
