Never Been Heard

(formerly The Musings and Learnings of a Widowed Bipolar Mum)

Bipolar Depression Is A Dark Beast

Weighing heavy on my chest

Rendering me immobile as I lay

My best a distant memory

Day by day by day

Staring into the abyss

Disconnecting as you devour me

Nothing is worse than this

I deteriorate hourly

Your ugliness reflects back in the mirror

But you’ve taught me not to care

I have a bigger problem

How to get you out of here

The fear you incite saps my energies

I don’t know when I last ate

Can’t meet my responsibilities


You claw inside my head

Causing voices and mind chatter

Sometimes I wish I was dead

You render me that battered


You forget that I’m a warrior

I’ve fought you off before

I have a strength inside me

You won’t leave me on the floor

I will get up and fight you

I’ll push you to the ground

My powers’ abundant too

And in myself I will be found
