EDGE OF MADNESS

By Catherine Gourd

Although Catherine has been labeled by her diagnoses, and was once ashamed of them, she is not anymore. She has accepted that she suffers from mental illness. She has anxiety, depression, and a mixed personality disorder – a mix of borderline personality disorder and dependent personality disorder. Catherine is now 30 years old, and the one unifying thread in her life, besides mental illness, is hope. In her mind, she is a survivor, she is strong, and she believes that there is always hope.

CLICK

By Catherine Gourd

Click is how it happens,
Click is how it goes,
My frontal brain it deadens,
My primal brain’s in throes.

I am all emotion,
No rationality,
I can’t go through motions
And fake normality

My pain is at its limit,
My being is my pain
And though I may forbid it
I know it’s all in vain.

My suffering is immense
I see no end to it
My body is too tense
On fire is my spirit.

I think of my own passing,
Of my pain being less
I cry and I am screaming
Enthralled in my own madness.

Click is how it happens,
Click is how it goes,
My frontal brain it deadens,
My primal brain’s in throes.
