Probably 5 years ago I went thru a very creative writing stage.  I wrote 3 articles on BP that were actually published in professional journals, plus I wrote a lot of poetry.  Now I wouldn't be able to write 2 creative words.
I have found BP to be ever changing as I journey thru the ups and downs.  Anyway, here is a poem I found yesterday folded up and put in a book.  I kind of like it and guess even tho I could never write something like this today, it pretty well reflects how I feel these days.
                   Pieces of a jigsaw puzzle 
                   scattered,
                   making no sense,
                   a picture with no meaning
                   Will I ever pick up the pieces?
                   Or will the pieces be thrown into a box,
                   never to be connected?
                   Or will important pieces be forever lost
                   making the picture meaningless??
                   Meanwhile, a jig saw puzzle remains,
                             scattered,
                             meaningless
                             unconnected
                   Will anyone help put me together???
 
I recently threw away many notebooks of my writings because they seemed so foreign in a creativty I no longer possess and most were so
depressing and reflected the pain of being BP.  I used to need to try to write it out of my system.  Finding that didn't "cure" me, I kind of gave it up.  Whatever, I just wanted to share this.

And thank you for sharing. Everyone here has such different areas of creativity, some its words, some music, others art, and others it is just hard to define. LOL LOL LOL Interesting that BP isnt just the desease of poets, or just the disorder of muscians. It can be as broad as the people it affects.

And horse crazy, its no big deal if you are a bit hypomanic, posting stuff here is a way better outlet for your energy than a whole lot of other things you could be doing. So that there i think is cause for celebration.

Congrats.
