A sudden flow of energy flows through me

I twitch where I stand, itching to move

Screw consistency, I’ll be who I wanna be

I’ll write a thousand haikus, just cos I can

Bright colours pop in my mind

Silent fireworks banging in my mind

I scream, I laugh, so loud

Dance when everyone’s watching, who cares anyway?

Smile at everybody who walks by

Play heavy metal music at top volume, who’s gonna complain?

There’s no one else around, and I’m not complaining

Panting coz I just ran a mile

I’m not tired though, there’s a mountain to climb

Dance around my living room

Kiss that guy you like, why not?

They asked if I’m drunk

I haven’t touched a drop

I’m high on life, my friend!

I’ll party all night and no one can make me stop

Let’s walk the plank together

I know pride comes before a fall,

But I have no pride, just this joy in my mind, so unfamiliar

Nothing can stop me and my mania

It could be gone tomorrow

But if I don’t sleep maybe I’ll outrun the sorrow…

~ Bluebell Rizzi

I’ve wanted to write about mania for a long time, but inspiration just eluded me. Tonight, though, it came, and with it this poem.

I hope you enjoy 🙂 ❤
