Exposed

Gently slicing into your bitterness,
I peel around your red skin,
And cut out your core.

The air on your snow white fruit,
Distracts from your beauty,
Turning you brown.

I disgard parts of you,
Like you are a piece
Of garbage..

Biting, chewing, spitting out the brown
Softness that has gathered,
I eat of your fruit.

Living A Bipolar Life

As I trod through the snow
As I lift my feet high
As I sink back to my knees
As I live my life.

Ther's always a storm 
Lurking, ready to defeat.

Rain To Snow: A Bipolar Life

Rain buckets down
Upon my head, pounding
Pounding me insane.

Withdrawal into my
Secure cacophony of thoughts
Racing like the rain.

Problems solved,
Can't be so far ahead that
My thoughts turn to fog.

Pounding, scrambled,
Racing through time at warp
Speed, never settle on one.

Conversations explode
From  my mouth like lightening and raiin
Brightens my tormented mind

Frozen, my mind turns to snow
I wait while snow drifts through the silenced air
I am calm with the silence in my ear.

Pain

Pain's source, unknown
Excruciating, piercing, pain!

Why me now, in the darkness;                    
Why me now, in the night's middle?

I'll take the bottled medicine,
Hoping it will magically work.

Prayer, out loud, to an unseen spiritual.
Help me, please, I can't do it alone in the dark.

I'll do what you tell me,
The pain needs putting to a deep sleep.

The pain is now just a low furnace burn,
Resulting in a sleepy-eyed, pain tolerable me.
