Shattered Minds

Shattered Minds

A Poem by Carbon Muse
"

The physical can be mended but the memories it leaves you with, haunts you for eternity. On Bipolar Disassociation

"
Like shards of a mirror,
each reflection distinct.
Your mind lies in tatters,
yet it somehow stays linked.

The sound of it breaking,
still rings loud in your ears.
All the thoughts in your head,
crying out, breeding fears.

As the glass cuts you deep,
and the blood starts to flow.
So too do the pieces,
of a mind, you don't know.

Singing out in one voice,
while your' sweeping the floor.
Like twisted creations
that you just can't ignore.

Your reflection restored,
having bandaged the pain.
Your thoughts always linger,
like a broken refrain.

"As the glass cuts you deep,

So too do the pieces,

Loved this stanza. And also the last one.
It just sort of wrapped everything up.

Well done and thanx for sharing

Okay...I love it. First of all thanks for taking the time to write a poem that rhymes. Second, thanks for the easy flowing message that makes its point without any heavy handed refrains. Enjoyed ( : O )

Thanks ^_^ It means a lot to hear that :)
As a traumatic brain injury survivor, including a stroke, this one rings so true. "The sound of it breaking still rings loud in your ears"... oh man, you nailed it.

CM, I am bipolar and there are countless times I wish to be gone, to unplug myself from this world and plug into my own. I was diagnosed at 11 years old, and most of my friends back then were imaginary because my real ones just didn't seem to get me figured out and I often could not understand a word they said. Your poem spoke to me in ways that just seemed to fit. Very nicely done! take care...dan

Some well-crafted metaphor and deep emotion here, CM. Whatever our personal demons, it is wise not to ignore them...

You are too kind, thank you :)
Like shards of a mirror,
each reflection distinct.
Your mind lies in tatters,
yet it somehow stays linked. "I love this one the most"


The metaphors in the poem are so brilliantly put to give a clear feel of that state of mentality.

Insight.

I've heard of dissociative disorder, and imagine it's very tough to live with. I wish you the best on your journey toward peace.
