Tension

Every muscle in his body was tense.
Constantly.
He could not relax himself.
His mind didn’t seem to allow it.

His shoulders were hunched.
So much so that he had constant headaches.
Leg muscles so tense
That he shuffled awkwardly.

He couldn’t slow his racing mind.
He tried every trick in the book.
Would he be like this forever?
Oh, the joys of bipolar.
