I could get diagnosed with paranoia
or that could’ve really been a private investigator
outside of my apartment last evening
And it could be said that I have issues with rage
or maybe I’m just pissed at the psychiatrist
I tell him, ” I can smell
your little bipolar sniffing
investigation from a mile away,
i studied psychology and lived
with mental patients; let me tell you now,
I don’t have it.” “Ok,” he says “But do you feel
that you’re anxiety and depression
are cyclical? Do you go through periods
where you feel like you can do anything?”
“I feel like that’s a trick question.
Listen, it’s not my fault or unrealistic
I can do anything if I set my mind to it.
I feel like I’m killing this.”
“Uh-huh, and is that a scar i see on your wrist?”
“No, that’s a cigarette burn.
Here are the scars. But I didn’t do that.
Someone else did.”
“Someone stabbed you?”
“Yeah, that’s a long story.
I don’t want to get into it.”
“We have an hour and a half.”
“Do we? If you ask me any more
bipolar related questions,
“Well, I can tell you right now
you’re not getting out of here
with just one diagnosis. But I’ll also add
that I think most of your issues
stem from the life that you’ve lived
and, of course, seeing as how I’m a psychiatrist
I’ll also point out that your mother has alot to do with it.”
