Bi-PolarAlthough I'm only 24,
I might as well be 42
with all the things I've gone and done
and all the things I'll never do.
Is it any wonder I don't sleep
with all the secrets that I keep?
All the things I'd like to say.
Maybe. Someday. Not today.
Tell people what I really think?
If I like them? If they stink?
I'd cause more problems than I'd solve
and leave hatred that will not dissolve.
I plan my life, to no avail.
Everything seems set to fail.
What is the point? Why should I care?
I find the darkness everywhere.
It's called "bi-polar;" ups and downs.
Manic smiles. Depressed frowns.
I cannot speak what I do feel
or find the time depression steals.
I live with hate. I live with pain.
I live the life of the insane.
But doom and gloom is not alone.
Something else drives these old bones.
I may wander valleys every week,
but I love the view upon the peaks.
I have my lows. I have my highs.
They're days I almost touch the sky.
I get that spark. I get that light.
No care for day. No care for night.

"I have a two o'clock?"
"He's been here since 7:45. I figured it's only polite to... sir."
God sighed. "Fine, send him in."
While He waited God cleared His desk of papers and blueprints; no need for outsiders to see His plans. Soon enough the door to His office opened and God stood, smiled, held out a hand towards one of the two visitor's chairs.
"God! Great stuff you're doing in sector 2-7-0! Great stuff!"
The man's hands were clammy, his handshake limp. Rumpled suit, porkpie hat, briefcase... oh Jes-- oh dear, a salesman. God's smile slipped a little but He soldiered on gamely. With luck He could shoo the poor guy away in a few minutes.
"So, what can I do for you?"
The man sat, briefcase across his knees. "Sector 2-7-0! Everyone's talking about it! What do you call it? Man and merman?"
"Man and woman, actually. And thanks. But we're pretty busy around here, and..."
"Oh! Right! No time for the wicked, eh?" The salesman winked and popped his briefcase,
