"Decide that you want it more than you fear it."


Dead.
Lying face down,
Body still, decaying,
Leaving nothing but memories;
Vacant.

Voiceless.
Lips glued, sewn shut,
Actions, emotions unsteady,
A prisoner of my own mind;
Stifled.

Manic.
My mind racing,
Pick up a pen, escape,
Emotions, thoughts now blueprinted;
Alive.

This is a very accurate description of what it feels like to be manic and depressed. Very well worded. It captures what it feels like well.

You see that girl? Yeah her. She seems so invincible, right? But just touch her & she'll wince. She has secrets& trust no one. She's the perfect example of betrayal. Because everyone that she's ever trusted has hurt her.
