Robin Williams (Draft 1)

Robin Williams

This is a grand failure of psychology,
someone who has millions for therapy
of any kind, of strict or loose, of
massage or wild screaming
everything possible

Somewhere
there was a play

A romp worth
a manic jubilant run

The last real part in
the ultimate movie
playing one’s self,
really hysterical
funny, and
why can’t laughing
be enough

  1. I always loved Robin Williams…it’s so sad that he couldn’t get the type of help he needed. It is a grand failure of Psychology. I liked the manic romp a lot and the ending. You know a lot of times depression is like that though…very manic. The ups and downs are exhausting. I feel bad for his wife, the pain she must be feeling right now.

    1. Yes, it’s hard to understand when love is so near. I wish I could wake up and say, “Give me my hug my love ’cause I’ve had a nightmare and can we have breakfast and walk on the beach with potato bread to make the seagulls laugh….

      1. That sounds like the perfect way to soothe; love with a hug and laughing seagulls… Nightmares and sadness would seem so much easier to cope with if love were near and understood.
        Oh I saw a river gull yesterday when we went to that walking bridge again, I got all excited about it. Too bad I didn’t have any potato bread with me…
