"My mom always told me the key to life was happiness. At school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. My teacher told me I didn't understand the assignment, I told him he didn't understand life." -John Lennon


Lately I've been hiding
All the while my time was abiding
My hope was lost
And at what cost?

I'm traveling in a dream
But it's bursting at the seams
And in the night I cry
I twist and writhe and scream

My heart is drunk with pain
All to my disdain
I hide away, I shy away
Waking to another day

But I'm still stuck here
In this never-ending nightmare
Of all that I fear
Full of crushed hopes and despair

I'm traveling in a dream
But it's bursting at the seams

This is about the nightmares I constantly have along with the lack of sleep that follows. This is another part of being Bipolar and some of this includes what that is like as well.
