Girl, Interrupted

Girl, Interrupted-

Deep cuts from within.
She faced bravely the many hardships of womanly life. 
How did she end up here?
Severe depression after her first mental breakdown.
Sorrow oppressed what was left.
Now in the parallel universe, 
Never aware of the world left behind.
She will catch a brief glimpse of this world where everything is different.

Losing the veil in which includes time, 
Aging without caring death awaits!
Her different personality replaces reality. 
Things appear normal in her the eye. 

Although captivate in her own mind,
She feels this is freedom.

Being heavily burdened--
Every day she stares into different mirrors,
Smiling in her bipolar face.
Without knowing insanity put her mind at ease.

    Really well done. did you write it after reading the book? watching the movie? Or was it just a title that fit? either way, really good.

    Pouring such emotions in your work. That's quite something. But in a poet's perspective, it is really on how he/she can express those overflowing feelings within us. Our work is our signature, our very own reflection of ourselve, that's who we are

    I don't know about the last line, what did you mean? I did like this poem though. I also loved the movie Girl interrupted. What motivated you to write this? Can I ask?

    Congratulations on your winning poem. This is very sad.

    Such a somber but moving poem of depth and perception, .......depression is the enemy of so many women....often hidden with shame......but a stalking presence. This is a great poem of truth.

    very powerful, you did a great job recreating the emotions depression through this poem :) Kirbykirb ~

    I like the use of stark words that truly describes what a person feels when they are truly depressed. It is truly an invisible burden others who do not understand will not see. I like how the mirror changes everyday while she calmly faces each days change. Very moving, but I am biased on this poem. I hope you have more like this one.
