Post  mikeschultz on Sat Feb 16 2013, 09:53

In my deepest depressions, I scarcely write
An intelligible word or coherent thought, and
While standing atop the pinnacle,
Manic pride spews out molten words
Too quickly for my melting pen to cipher.

I live with the mouse in the field overturned
And feel Burns’ pain for his un-intentioned deed,
Sailing great rivers and oceans, enjoined
With adventure through the stories I write,
Stories lived, and now known only as memory.

I don’t know, and when I know, I’m not sure,
So how can I say I know anything at all?
Life gives us lemons, I’m told,
That we may make lemonade for everyone,
So what does one make from depression?

Just out of an extended manic stage,
In a continuous cycle of depression and mania,
With a mix of the two as we pass the baton,
Where am I that I cannot see where I’ve been,
And cannot even say where I’m going?
