It isn't easy,
riding the seesaw within my brain.
Will it rise, fall or give me a moment's peace?
When it's time to rise
I see the world through rose tinted glasses.
Now impossible to express anything but sheer happiness.
The darkness seems a lifetime away,
a surreal experience that just doesn't seem true.
Yet it is true.
Time passes and the fall begins
The world plummeting into darkness
All energy sapped from me
My spirit shattered
Deep despair filling every nook and cranny
I want nothing more than to disappear
Released from the shackles of my mind
