Mental Illness, just like anything else regarding human existence, is not only different in every person affected by it; but it’s reacted to differently as well. I’ve spent most of my life in a dance with my own malfunctions. The closest I can come to describing things in a broad view is to compare it… Continue reading A Dance With Mental Illness
I swam away in the light of a gossamer web Frolicking strands tickled my feet As I floated amid the cerulean tides Pushed and pulled by the gentle sway My life rocked into an even calm The muted cacophony of the outside world Trickled from somewhere muted and murmuring Pacified by the slowly waving green… Continue reading Lullaby
After what seemed like an eternity, Dave worked up the courage to open his eyes again. He stood within a pinprick of light, surrounded by a vast darkness so profound, that if he’d been asked to describe it, he’d be at an utter loss for words.
