the years before…

the years before they were controlled
the seizures ripped away my mind;
depression left me passion-blind,
and to much further living, cold

i’d stay awake for three days straight,
then make that up by sleeping five;
on whim, might take a three-week drive,
and end up in some distant state

twas mania that carried me
depression, then, would fill my head
and i became a newlywed
for loneliness had married me
