Lithium

Rating: 4.0
I fancy the life full of
temptations and anti-depressants.
Forget lithium,
depart me from the apathetic audience.
Emphasize my hopes and surround myself
in my sweet, sweet indulgence.

I've been counting the days,
and I believe happiness is about due.
take down these bland curtains,
paint these walls that are of pale hue,
change the floral blankets on my bed,
and the pillows too.

I seen what they did to her,
a life on paper, with coherent sentences.
the day she took lithium,
her life became speechless,
and when she wakes up,
all meaning has already been lost.

I know I'm bipolar,
but I rather be an emotional wreck
and write a life I can fathom.
I know I'm stubborn,
but I rather not embrace,
what she could not abandon.

I've been counting the days,
and I believe happiness is about due.
change my room, change my mind,
and change my ending too.
