Jack D addresses his demons with art and writing
Life on the Borderline
Noxious worm at the end of the world
Breaks out into the sun
Scours the plane, seeking brain,
And drills the Fragile One
I wrote this poem in July 2018, during one of many stays in a Mental Health Clinic.
The Artwork came first. I think it took a few days to draw the skull because my concentration was compromised.
I wrote the poem one evening before night-time meds. And as you can see, it must have been a dark time.
A short poem exorcising the thoughts from of my brain. Just a single verse, a Moment in Time.
I don't know if there is a lesson, or anything at all, that anyone else can take from this experience on paper.
Except possibly, that drawing, painting, writing, composing, or anything that helps get the thoughts, out-of-your-head. Can drag you back from the Borderline.
