numb

numb

A Poem by Desert Knave

Spending time there

or trying hard

just to get there

It seems that life

has turned into

a

slow

dull


drive


down


the


road


to



numb

I think you've expressed the descent into the deep dark canyon of depression very well and very imaginatively DK. I too am bipolar but fortunately I seldom descent to the depths. It may be my running that keeps me on the level and also the lithium. From time to time I do get high which is fun and also a few times I've blasted off on interstellar journeys of discovery. Its definitely been good for my writing ! if you have a look at my earlier writing eg 'Manicarus' you can form your own opinion.
All the best,

Thank you. I have considered trying medicines again, as other avenues have failed. ~Jim

How sad this one is. Brings to mind the song of long ago, "Is that all there is?" Still, if you can manage life without the numbness, it is so much more pleasurable. The change in font is very effective here, Jim. Have a good weekend. Lydi**
