Keep It Real:If I Could Cry

if i maurice yvonne could cry i’d spread my tears eternal over your  ( say it, dare to be bold) naked body (then she could taste your pain) but i can’t shed tears anymore (tell her why) (you need her to know) (no i can't she'll leave me) (get out of my head) my mind beats differently now i have seen the doctor i'm not well...kind of (you're blowing it) (can't you see her face) (quiet i'm trying to think) it's not like a normal doctor if i could feel (you use to. you did) i would touch you with the hands of a silk maker gentle and caring and with purpose. the doctor. my physiatrist. i was diagnosed as bipolar  (there you got it out) (was that so hard?) leave me alone will you no i'm sorry not you they gave me drugs  i don't feel like i use to not the mountain not the waterfall (give it a break just speak plain) (ok yes i will) i can't cry any more i have no sex drive it's the pills if i... oh my God  if i... i would and more i’d run beyond to hold you i would the pills they make me docile you'll laugh when you hear this because you are always with me (don't get all mushy with her) i miss you  (ok bud you did it) (let's just move on) i have no answers, but i know what you're feeling you want us to be romantic way back (i can't listen to this) (i am out of here) before being medicated i was passionate  so very passionate not anymore  i'll tell you though something’s got to give my god  something’s got to give.

Writing allows us to express the things that we could never say. I believe that poetry can be very therapeutic, because it has gotten me through some tough times before. It is like that best friend who is always there when we need them most.... Please keep writing, Maurice. You have a great talent! Good luck in SKAT's contest!

Thank you for sharing such personal info with us. Maurice. You are a great poet above all things and I hope your writing and reading are also good medicine for you. I am amazed of all the hardships people have gone through here. On one side it is good because we all have pain in one form or another and can all support each other.

deep emotional write Maurice my sis suffers from depression and the meds mess her up - at the moment I can't cope with words from her like 'I want to go to sleep and never wake up' -I've got enough on my plate and want to keep on living. hugs Jan xx best therapy is writing Maurice gets your emotions out in the open and others can relate:-) hugs Jan xx

I know exactly that. I was put on meds for anxiety, and for bi, but I like my emotions too much, I need them. I write and it creates a home for them, emotions are a tool, they don't need to be shamed or supressed. and I missed the sex drive, i hated feeling numb to the world. i think the key to not being crazy is to except being crazy and use it the bad times make the good times sweeter, why make all the flavors the same. But anyway, babe you are awesome and I certaintly do enjoy having you here

HAHAHAHA! While taking care of my parents for seven years 24/7, i suffered a panic attack and then many. I am not typical bipolar mostly general anxiety disorder. I feel great but the pills do have a sedative quality.
