The Borderline Personality (BPD) Poem

Hi, my name is Leif E. Greenz and this is “Borderland,” a poem I wrote in 2016 about my borderline personality disorder (BPD) diagnosis. I honestly believe BPD is most often a misdiagnosis of complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD), but more on that later!

Read the full poem below:

Borderline, borderland,
Lamictal, speed, Citalopram,
I love my crook psychiatrist.
$160 for five minutes,
a white slip,
and a glance at his green class ring,
the gaudy prick.
I’m fused with him.
One day of missed doses means
smashed dishes,
new ex-boyfriends,
and a cross carved on my stomach.
Doc says I’m Satan incarnate
and he is my gas-masked angel
wielding a morphine syringe.
He is my hero,
my healer,
my watering hole.
And I am his Kool-Aid drinker.

Borderline, borderland,
bipolar diagnosis.
Doc adds it to the list:
dysthymia, PTSD, majorly depressing
outlook on everything.
A razorblading, sex-fiending, self-sabotaging Eris
with a sad boy complex,
leaving chemtrails of
motherfucking
Freudian bullshit.
Sheep-eater,
straight-edger,
hip hopping hypocricist
spitting dip drip from cracked lips.
Leif,
hyperventilating she-beast with tattoos and Timberlands,
Iron Man,
psychopath,
they see right through me.
