Admitting Mental Illness,

Admitting Mental Illness,

Do you admit to me your presence,
that cruel and uncaring form of self-hood,
acknowledging your involuntariness,
in dealing with my life on occasions
which matter so much to me,
and the detestable act of having
love faith and hope,
completely undiscerning,
in a fantasy world,
ignoring my hellish agony?

Do you admit to me,
the one in authority,
that you have absconded
your responsibilities continually,
and that you have not relented from your ways,
even when I pressed you for co-operation,
in dealing with urgently
yes, imperative matters
timely and maturely,
yet never respecting,
my feelings or point of view,
even during extremely
turbulent and dangerous times?

Do you admit
that your unwillingness and stubbornness
has caused me much grief,
and that willingly surrendering yourself,
at a much earlier date,
could have moulded you into something
more pliable than is presently the case,
toughening yourself against my attempts
to achieve some kind of empiric unity?

Do you therefore admit
that your position makes my life precariously unstable,
detonating,
exploding,
mushrooming clouds,
laying waste,
yes vaporising,
everything
that has been worked so awfully hard for,
me,
putting so much energy
and time into building my reality,
without you giving a hoot about any of this
never - ever - at all?

Well?


"I admit."


Good then we are finally getting somewhere!
