39 (who?)
I have been too sad
to tell you that I love you
when I am tearing my hair out
and smashing my bones on the floor
to make myself whole.

And I have been too sad
to tell you that I love you
when you are keeping my hands
from pulling at my skin,

when you are holding my body down to the
safety of the floor with your arms wrapped
around my chest as though maybe they can
keep my sadness still.

But lover, I am not too sad
to write this poem backwards on
your face with my lips.

I hope that one
day you look in the mirror
and it's there, loving you
as much as I do.
I have been too sad for anything. The only times I feel truly capable of anything is during my manic episodes, during which I am totally exhilarated but also entirely out of my mind. I'm back on medication despite a very strong dislike of relying on a pill in order to function. I am tired of knowing he is sad because he cannot fix my madness.

What you call your madness, Hun, is your inner sanity becoming real. If you learn to accept that your sanity will be controllable over time, how long that takes, is entirely up to you though.

This is absolute perfection.

(I'm sorry for your pain. Not in an apology way, but in a compassion way, an "I empathise with you and I hope it eases soon" way.)
