Lost Within Myself (Bi-Polarity Comes Knocking) - Poem by Elizabeth Sheaffer

Life's catastrophe
Mental apathy
Feeling empty,
Lost, and dazed.
Deep depression
My regression
I'm alone,
Brain in a haze.
Pain-filled anguish
Mental languish
My hopelessness
Cannot be fazed.
Evil thoughts
Satan's taunts
My mind races,
Eyes ablaze.
Empty wrinkles
Insanity twinkles
Bi-polarity never
Fails to amaze.
Eyes distraught
Lonely thoughts
Tears overwhelm
And eyes are glazed.
Wicked torment
So absorbent
I shrink to nothing
Beneath your gaze.
