Locked, bound, and not breathing…
Being Bipolar, depressed, having anxiety, agoraphobia, etc…it’s being shut in. It’s being bound up and blinded. It’s panic and terror. It’s wanting to die, quickly (or slowly). It’s craving pain, because that’s an outlet and something to take your mind away from what you’re feeling at the time.
When the bindings are released and that door opens, when you can see, when you can breathe!
You remember, all over again, why your heart beats. You remember why you love, why you live. You remember everything.
And you start. You start all over again…with tears in your light-blind eyes.
