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.
