I knew a schizophrenic
An artist friend
He was an extreme character but I understood him
He was very sensitive and could pick up on peoples unvoiced feelings
He seemed to get overloaded
One seemingly crazy thing he did was - He had many great paintings which I admired.
I went round to see him one day and to my shock he had painted out all his works with white paint
After chatting to him I could understand his reasoning
I have done similar things also IE Burn all my poetry and start again
I hate how labels are too quickly attached to some people and how throwing mind dulling drugs at them is an easy option too often taken.
I like many often question what is considered normal or socially inconvenient.
But that is my experience and all have their own
