Borderline Personality Disorder



“The Line 4/12/17

there's a line somewhere

deep inside your brain

that separates the neurotic

from the psychotic.

if you're lucky

you've never seen this line

you've never had to wonder which side you fell on

because you of course just know

you’re normal

and not crazy

like me

but i live on this line

on the border of this line

i am not neurotic

and i am not psychotic

so what am i?

i am nothing

i am no one

i am a disorder

a walking contradiction

i am a dozen fabricated personalities

for you to have and enjoy.

i can't stop it

i can't fix it

after all this time

it's who i am

it's all i have

when you strip me down

bare in a psychological sort of way

there's nothing there

i have nothing

no one

because i don't exist

on that plane

on that side of the line

whichever side that may be.”
