The Storm Inside Of Me

There is a storm inside of me and my emotions are in the eye of it.

I know I should take shelter but my body, known as she, decides to sit.

My heart is tearing into a thousand pieces but yet she does not stir.

All I can do is sit here and console myself because I am a part of her.

She is a temporary shell that I call my home.

And without her I would be lost and all alone.

My emotions are heavy, my mind is weak.

The storm is getting more intense but yet she still does not speak.

I have to overpower her so she can see.

How this is affecting me.

If we don’t take cover before the storm pass.

How will I survive? How I surpass?

The devastation that lies before me.

She has to know. She has to see.

But in the blink of an eye all the damage is over and done.

The storm has taken over my emotions. It has finally won.

Now I have risen to an unwanted state.

Another Bipolar episode has driven me to an uncontrollable fate.

@MysteriousOne...Hey there! How have you been? Thank you for stopping by. I am looking forward to those better days :)

@Truckstop Sally...I am so glad you stopped by. One thing is for sure, we will always have to fight for survival.

@Sharyn...you are so kind. I am glad that my writings have helped you to see the feelings of someone close to you. I hope they are doing well.

I feel so much and the safest way for me to get everything out is to put it in words. I feel that making it public will help someone else and to let them know that they are not alone. This is something that you have proven to me today.

Your encouraging and empowering comments give me confidence and I thank you for that. I look forward to hearing from you again.

Sassy,

I realize you are opening up about how you are truly feeling in your life. I am so glad you are sharing your thoughts. I'd love to say something that makes you feel better about life. I can say that on a somewhat different level, I can relate. And at times, you have helped me see how someone close to me may be feeling. You have opened my eyes and I so appreciate you for that. And I can say that you are a very gifted, talented writer. You have been writing so much lately and I am very intrigued every time I see a new piece by you. Awesome work!

Storms, eyes . . . very powerful images. But survival is the ultimate. We all need a measure of control.
