The mind was overloaded.
Anxiety and agitation set in.
Personality split and anger took over.
One mind split in two, a mania nightmare-
Control and control
Wants the mind of the calm side,
But it can only watch the other.
Anger plays out,
Rejoins calm, and the normal
Manic-depression arises again.
No anxiety, or agitation
No where to go now but down.
The mind full of hurt,
Downward cycle begins, and sends
The mind soon, curled in a ball.
A life time of normal, a rollercoaster ride
But the end of each cycle, normal again.
