a week is spent
in throes of excitability,
irritation, unstoppable words,
and ideas with wings of their own-
they soar in their preternatural flight
without a second's notice
and meander along separate currents.

sleep is an elusive,
abstract idea,
fought for so ruthlessly,
only to have it slip away,
silent,
mere hours later.

i am icarus, resin-winged in thought
and flying til my fingers can
almost
brush the sun.

i am icarus, resin-winged in thought
and watching my feathers drop
until my body
is subject once more
to the relentless rules of gravity.

hitting the dirt
hurts more every time-
physics has no mercy for bruised bones.
refusal to meet my mother's gaze,
to speak when spoken to,
and to move from the cave of my bedroom
become expected.

i know how the sun feels
when it sinks below the earth,
and the struggle of the moon
as it thrashes to rise.
the endless circle
from night and day
grows so tiresome that sometime,
i swear
it will just
cease.
not sure if i told you about my diagnosis of three or so weeks ago.

but anyway.

hypomania is fading and i am scared for the crash that will ensue.

This is a very interesting poem, and it is relatable as I am bipolar too. Your poem really spoke to me. Excellent writing.

we're all essentially things that rise to fall, don't feel to imprisoned or different
you are beautiful

and these are things i say to myself so it doesn't hurt (the rise, fall, or consciousness that i am predictable and diagnosable (this means 'me, too')) so i say them to you, just in case you and i feel the same.

this is beautiful and so close to me right now, i just love the way you word things

Im diagnosed as depression and anxiety disorder but no one believes me when I suggest I might have bipolar. I have manic episodes too, they scare me massively.
