Just Sharing

Lurks around the edges of my mind,
Watching, waiting
For me to let down my guard
So it can invade.
Or perhaps…..
Madness will creep in
Under the cover of denial.
I close my eyes and try to wish it all away.
But I’m no genie.
My genies are pink and yellow and green and white.
And they must escape their bottles often.
Or the madness moves in and stays.

~Ruth C. White, author of “Bipolar 101: A Practical Guide to Identifying Triggers, Managing Medications, Coping with Symptoms, and More.”
