Fall Mania

It begins so innocently and oh so sweet,

Autumn brings a reprieve from depression, a much needed treat.

Instead of 8 hours of sleep I start to get four

Everything's fun, nothing's a bore

Painting, chores, writing two books,

Suddenly confident with my physical looks

I feel great, I feel wonderful, I hope it never ends

I'm a rubber band that won't break but can bend

Pushed to the limits of what is even possible

"I'm fine, I'm fine, I don't need the hospital"

But my sleep keeps dwindling down to dust

And my energy is rising, as is my lust

I spend money I don't have as soon as I can,

I speed down the highway, stick it to the man!

I quit school and my job in one fell swoop

My mind replays scenerios in a never ending loop

I will be rich, I will be famous, God tells me so,

"It's all good, man, just go with the flow"

But the nights stretch out longer, and now no sleep at all

So I roam the streets, running until I fall

Alone in the dark, I make a call

911 please, I'm afraid for my life

My mind is filled with images of a rope and a knife

The police man comes and takes me away

Before I have a single bit of say

I just wanted company but I find myself in a ward

And for the first time in weeks, yes I'm bored

They call this mania, they say I need meds,

And apparently cold showers, bad food, and hard beds

But I do what they say, I play along,

Join the group in making crafts and singing songs

The doc says bipolar disorder type one

was the reason for my month of fun

It pains to say, it's all over now

My mania is gone with an elegant bow

Now depressed, I curl in a ball

Apparently Humpty Dumpty had a great Fall.
