The Bipolar Experience of the Written Word
The Pain of Bipolar Disorder
No, you can't just pull yourself out of it-
Paper bound in dark dusty jacket
Pungent smell of mold spots
Stagnant news; reruns of all that has gone before
Dark, numbing, sour
Slowly read - missed a line - concentrate
Blurry grey letters jumble randomly
An invalid opinion, a dull tale
Shelved long before the last page,

The Infinite Pleasure of Bipolar Disorder
Joy is great, but be aware of too much joy-
Paper bound in brightly coloured sleeve
Crisp clean new, sharp
Amazing news; the world shines with possibility
Glowing, stimulating, sweet
Quickly read – absorbed - assimilated
Sharp black letters flow in ordered lines
An insightful lecture, a novel point of view
Shelved only after the last drop of ink
The life story begins here
