MANIC DEPRESSIVE

 

Sticks and stones don’t hurt, but

Words maim the mind, leaving thoughts

That filter through chaos, spreading

Like a cancer,

Threatening sanity,

Destroying reason.

 

The mind that welled

With love, Emotion

Barren now of warmth,

Seeks filling,

Despair

And darkness find seed within.

Loneliness

Finds a way

To destroy

Feeble defences, built

In casual companionship

Spreading

Like a forest fire, and like

A rabid canine, bites

The mind that feeds it.

 

It begins,

The beckoning, the magnet

Of death draws closer,

Lifts its veil, and reveals

The peaceful abyss,

Of a sleep

Without end.
