There is a method to my maddness,
which I wish to share with you.
It's why I lose my sanity,
those times I'm feeling blue.
See my dreams of schitzophrenia,
when I talk to me and me.
Through bouts of paranoia,
Eyes everywhere we can't see.
And I can be compulsive,
yes I can, I can, I can.
Or maybe co-dependant,
I need you where've you been?
But a manic-depressive,
is how you find me now.
So leave me and just go away,
it never matters anyhow.

This poem was well written, but I am not sure if it is making light of mental illness or if it si sincere in its words. I get a little of both with it. Having a 17 year old son with Bipolar (Manic/depressive), I have found that mental illness is nothing to scoff about. He has a genuis IQ of 125 and because of his illness, will probably never make anything of himself...or at least until he recognizes that the medication does help and he does have a problem.

When I make "light" of something, I in no way mean it to be demeaning or depracating. It's just my personality to be humourous as often as I can (in real life) My writing however, is usually the balance to my nature. If you notice, most of my other stuff is darker and deeper.

You know how when I read 'Old Men' to you and you said it was well-written but just not accurate - well same goes here dear! Well written indeed but just not insightful to true schizophrenia! Yes, I know you incorporated other illnesses too. Hey - love the way you spelled humoUrous!
