One more day of sadness
Taking away my control
Over thoughts causing madness
Another day swallowed whole
Leaving a trail of hurt
Of loved ones around me
Left twisting in my dirt
Because med’s aren’t guaranteed
Bye and bi a new day starts
Trying to make amends
Hoping I didn’t break your hearts
Or I might descend again

Interesting, do you mind explaining your meaning behind this one?
I have bi-polar type 2. I added bi-polar to my tags under the piece. I should have made it clearer for my readers. Thanks for your input.
Well expressed. Bi-polar can be a terrible illness to cope with at times. Hope you’re feeling better soon.
I’m fine, but you us bis….We only go up or down. Thanks for your concern and hope all is well with you too.
No that’s ok, I know about the bipolar but the poem reminded me of another scenario so I just wondered what situation you were trying to portray 🙂
I was trying to show others that bi polar not only hurts yourself, but also your family and friends; they are limited as to what they can do.
