Holly's Poem

Holly wrote this poem late one evening amid a creative outburst. 136 Major depicts each of her diagnoses by verse and has helped her come to terms with each of them. She finds it a reassuring reminder that perfection is an illusion each time she reads it.

136 Major



My secluded state

C’est la vie en tenebres

Dead inquisition



Debilitating

A slow decomposition

Brain dead before body



He plays with my mind

Escape to freedom denied

A brute fantasy



A silent echo

of exhausting restlessness

Panic at the club



A rich illusion

On looking from high above

The faint film of life



Diamond in the rough
