My Spaceship

by a young man, age 16

Sleepless nights
Like I am on a rocking ship
Flying through the solar system
Upside down, right side up
Chilling in a space ship
The walls melt
And the days are endless
It feels like I am in a labyrinth of time and space
I feel trapped with no way of escaping
Sleepless nights because of my mania
My eyebrows are stuck up
Because my eyes won't blink
My skin feels like wax
Touching my hands, my fingers stick like plaque
My whole face feels numb
I try to close my eyes, but they are stuck open
Constantly jolting up
That is my bipolar
