“WILDFIRE”

These wounds are not
Wounds you can see
But still
They are inside of me

images (9)

So sealed
Only I can see
Unfulfilled
It’s treachery

Burning my skin so deep
Yearning for a memory to keep

Show me a sign
And I’ll show you the words
You say it’s benign
I say you’re all absurd

I’m still crying
And so unheard
Living but dying
Like a broken – winged bird

images (12)

Trying to find strength
To fly again
Searching for length
To try again

Flapping
Up and down
Trapping me
At the slightest sound

The little fears
Keep coming around
Followed by tears
Kicking me down

images (8)

And no-one
Hears a sound

The tree falls
And I am crippled
The little bird calls
And the drops of blood are trickled

No-one sees at all
It’s just too fickle.
You can’t hear the fall
But I feel the thistle.

And it’s madness.

I am a writer. I am an artist. I love people. And understanding human behavior has become a hobby. It becomes imperative when you're trying to understand your own. I have Borderline Personality Disorder. To me, it means many things. On some days it means the most extraordinary imagination one could have. On other days it means it is the absolute end of the world when that vision gets distorted and dismissed. Sometimes I feel like it is the best part of me and sometimes I feel like I wish I had never been born. Some days it is pure black and some days pure light. I have a daily battle to find my Grey; my middle ground. It is not just a diagnosis. It's a state of mind. But this is not all that I am. I am still discovering myself one wonder at a time.
