  • Bi-Polar Karachi
  • Bi-Polar Karachi is a diary of a girl who at birth was married to a city which soon turned out to not only love her with everything it has, but also drive her insane. It is the rants of a girl who has been madly in love with a city even though the city’s extreme mood swings bring her close to suicide. The city has been personified to be a man suffering from a Bi Polar disorder, someone who switches from being euphoric to sadistic in a matter of seconds. A man who has turned the innocent love of a girl Bi Polar too; she is now stuck between a condition of love and hate, all dependent on what the city has in store for her. Even though this city leaves her exhausted in every possible way, gives her reasons to detest it from the bottom of her heart, the girl’s love for it is so strong that she wouldn’t be anywhere but home.

    It’s been so long since we’ve been strong; still your doubts just go on,

    Oh so many mothers you have, all looking for the perfect one,
    With eagle eyes and vulture intentions, they always manage to hook one up,
    I’d hate to fall in their net, but this flattery you throw always gets through,
    Dear Diary, I hate him but I love him, I wouldn’t be with anyone but him.

    Dear Diary, I hate him but I love him, I wouldn’t be with anyone but him.

    I know your love has no shore; I love the mansion you’ve made for my caretaker,

    Each morning on the way to school I see it spread, swallowing more and more in acres,
    Three floors below you place my boss; there was no need for such a deed,
    I hate that you’ve placed him on such a pedestal; it makes me bleed jealousy,
    Dear Diary, I hate him but I love him, I wouldn’t be with anyone but him.

    I love how you can talk for hours; the dreamer you are makes me proud,

    I hate how you can go on for hours, but play dead when it comes to your part,

    All talk and no action only frustrates me, but somehow you manage to make me believe,

    You exhaust me off all my love; still I continue to walk with you,
    Dear Diary, I hate him but I love him, I wouldn’t be with anyone but him,
    Because he is my one and only; my bipolar Karachi.
