Description: Manic Love Poems 1984 This book of poetry is the only creative thing I have ever produced. The poems are simple, childlike and not very profound, but they are from the heart and mind of a young girl who fell in love with someone she shouldn't have fallen in love with (to quote The Buzzcocks). But what I thought was love was probably the start of my illness, bi polar. Although the highs I get seem to feel very much like love to me. I hope they inspire people to believe in something good even though the world is full of bad things. font size =4>Description: My experiences of a failed Marriage Gerry's straightforward and descriptive book is the sad but true story of his emotional breakdown.
