she was

SHE Was Pretty… She Spend Half Of Her Life…
Plucking and waxing, moisturizing, dieting, exercising, brushing, applying, removing, tucking this, hiding that, cleaning this washing that, buying this and buying that…
Wearing clothes that hung gracefully to her shape accessories to add taste, fake eyelashes here, fake extensions there, piercing this and tattooing that…
“It was her body” she argued to those who criticized her. Then came the day she died… She was locked in a box and the key was thrown away, her coffin left to lay amongst the dirt, where her body will slowly disintegrate to nothing as the maggots, feast on the skin she used to take so much care of!
“it’s my body” she had argued…
No!!! It was NEVER your body but it was given by Allah… For if it was your body surely you’d have never left it behind.
“indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return” (Surat Baqara:156)
Ya Allah!!! forgive all my sins… Great and small sins, the first and the last sins, those that are apparent and those that are hidden. Aameen.

Hypo manic mixed state 

skin is antisy and creepy crawling inside with anguish and annoying deep within my soul 

anguished despairing dark deepness of all my life 

depressed despair! filled with grayish green blackness that noone else understands or cares 

its like staring into a abyss and the abyss stares back 

but no matter how deep the abyss is its up to you to jump or not! 

 

Ode To Lost Sleep 

Sleep fails me more and moreI lay awake tossing and turning, 

My mind unable to quit down  

Staring at the wall and ceiling gets old fast

I dont know what happened and why I cant sleep 

None of the sleep soultions help 

I feel helpless and hopeless 

My mind dwells in darkness of shadowy sadness, 

And unending sorrows

I silently cry tears of fears and sorrows that only I know, 

About noone sees the shadow of my life’s struggles against this thief, 

Bipolar has many mangled sides to it ,watch closely and it will steal everything

Starting with the thoughts of happiness it will replace them with gloom and doom worries about Silly things as well what if if only!

Then your to tired and worried to sleep so you just pass the time and worry and fear eats away 

You peaceful slumber by the time you have figured it out the problem isn’t easily remedy.
