A snippet is shared from “Mary Lives - A story of Anorexia Nervosa & Bipolar Disorder:”

the brain tries hard to gather its fragmented parts,
and anchor down the guy lines.
To weather out this hopeliness, this turmoil and this pain,
—prevent disintegration until the calm returns
and clear skies come again.
