Girl, Interrupted

Girl, Interrupted-

Deep cuts from within.
She faced bravely the many hardships of womanly life
How did she end up like this?
Severe depression after her first mental breakdown
Sorrow oppressed what was willed
At present 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 eyes. 

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.

Sometimes it's difficult to traverse the maze that naturally exists inside our mind, so we cut through the walls and hedges to make a new path, while leaving those waiting for us at the end wondering where we are. lovely write, SKAT.

Isn't it beautiful the moment you can use the relentlessness of being one of the insane- but not safe from all the corruption either?

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
