She...





life is exciting
like a pendulum swinging
with no in-between


always on the go
with not a moment of rest
when she's on her high


then she hits her lows
and everything go downhill
ah, time for her pill


And all seems well now
but like sands through the hourglass
the cycle begins...


a tragic Blessing
paired with a Beautiful curse
she is Bipolar

Very thought provoking and touching haiku!

If you're really interested in the book reviews, let me know and I'll give you the reps email addy. You can ask her if you're able to participate. I don't think it matters where you are as long as you have a blog.
