Bipolarity (why I've been gone for so long)

Avatar Author: Abby (LoA) Gonna miss you guys so much. My 'official/professional' email is: in case anyone wants to keep in touch! Read Bio

The world seems too bright in the night
these days.

But I can’t but begin to deny it.

And I don’t know quite how to say the thin words
that my heart beats too fast in the bright night
these days…

Or get out the words that my spit is too sweet.
Or how I can taste chlorine in the water
these days
Or how the lights are just so very bright
these days
Or how my legs could just run themselves
bloody these days.

You know
I can’t wait.
I’m so close.
I just…
I don’t even know
You know?
Any more.

And the rain smells so soft off the clouds
these sweet days,
And the colours are just so damn pretty
these days.
While the skin on your face feels so soft
these damn days.

You know.
I can’t wait.
I’m so close.
I just…
I don’t even know
You know?
Any more.

And I can’t help but think that the
ice is so cold these days,
the sheets are so warm and
the wine is so sharp these days.

Cant wait … so close … I just…
Don’t even know.
You know?

    Well, can’t say I don’t miss ya here and I’m probably not the only one, but I agree with elsha on this one.

    If this is goodbye, I’ll just plan on welcoming you when you get back, making it more of a TTFN (Ta-Ta For Now). I don’t think anybody begrudges you, we just sort of quietly miss you. On the other hand it would be worse if we held you back.

    Your poem makes us all mushy so it’s working!

    Aww thank you guys! Life sure is crazy at the moment (in a good way), but I’ll be back – in the summer for sure if not before then :)

    You only get one shot at it so make it worth your while. No regrets! Thats how you should approach it all. Get some experience in and see it through. Great enrty by the way lol.

    Ehy, I feel you. Someone’s called me bipolar before, and I can’t help but find that it was true.

    It’s weird. It’s this sense of uncertainty that really triggers mood swings./.

    This speaks to me. Also it reminds me of Billy Joel’s song “I Go to Extremes”.
