POEM: Manic Episode 403

Mind racing

Body shaking 

Adrenaline rising 

No compromising 


I can’t see

This isn’t me

Too afraid to let it be 

Manic episode 403


Mania is fun

It makes me the one

But I know i’ll fall down

When I hit the ground 


Mind racing

Body shaking

Adrenaline rising 

No compromising 


A ball of energy now

I’m god’s pinball pal 

He chucks me up 

And spins me, FUCK


How do I stop?

My mind will surely rot

I’m not in control 

I tried a racing stroll


Mind racing

Body shaking

Adrenaline rising 

No compromising 


As the clouds cast over 

And I remember i’m sober 

I remind myself 

This is temporary wealth 


Now it’s time 

To give up on this rhyme

To soothe and survive 

Soon I will thrive
