Princess Amobi – “Polar Express”

I will tell you about mania.
It is two burning poles; I
In the middle bound, rolling
To press me flat
A deep black hole, a sunken place
And I falling unending, sinking deep
It is being caught in a web;
All my thoughts, giant spiders
In a frantic race to get at me
It is walking a long path, knowing that
I am bound somewhere, knowing not where
Realizing later that I have lost my
Mind again, prancing on the edge of sanity
It is pushing vehemently behind the door
of my mind to keep the darkness out,
Yet, enticed, I let it in
It is wetness of cheek, wetness rolling towards
Chaffing lips, saltwater on a thirsty tongue
It is ecstasy pulsing through my veins — exploding
Maddening highs and crashing lows
Apathy and enthusiasm in one yoke
It is water and I submerged
Racing heart and palpitation
Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep.
Beep beep beep beep beep beep

Flatline and begin again.
