Several studies have shown verbal impairment and visual impairment linked to decreased processing speed (Brébion, Bressan, Pilowsky, & David, 2011; Ojeda et al.,2009- 2012). Among people suffering from a mental disorder, in 1965 studies have shown men with schizophrenia have are more likely to commit crimes and violent behavior (Lindqvist and Allebeck 1990; Hodgins 1993; Belfrage 1998). Data from the Epidemiological Catchment Area Study, found that persons with schizophrenia reported behaving violently.
Secondly, the poem “I Can Stand Him No Longer” also incorporates and develops the thematic topic of guiltiness all along. In the poem, the man states “A heavy conscience will always make what’s hidden revealed” In this situation, the man means to say that a strong feeling, in this case, guilt, can make what 's hidden revealed to everyone. So, the author uses an Oxymoron which in this case, is “conscience” to convey to the reader that there is a deeper level of truth in this sentence. And that by saying “conscience,” the author does not mean any random feeling but instead, is trying to signal the reader that the man is referring to the specific feeling of guiltiness. This is because a person’s actions are a result of his/her emotions and consequently, the person would do anything, without giving any second thought to what he/she is about to do, and that may lead to the revealing of something hidden such as secrets and etc.

Dorothy Ruiz, an Associate Professor in the Africana Studies Department at UNC Charlotte, wrote in Epidemiology of Schizophrenia: Some Diagnostic and Sociocultural Consideration: Schizophrenia is an illusive illness. The symptoms consist of delusions of persecution or reference not occurring in the context of severe depression; grandiose, religious, somatic, or bizarre delusions, but not in a setting of severe depression or mania; disordered thought or body control; and hallucinations, but not depressive in content and not symptomatic of alcohol addiction.
This leads to the third mental illness, alcoholism.

However, the following lines change the viewpoint of the interpretation: “But in the flame I saw myself burned alive / Burned alive with her”. The reason behind his melancholy is revealed and it becomes obvious that the curse is in fact love and the result of it is despair. The narrator continues “Please, save me Saint Peter!” This plead creates a link to “With You Came the Whole of the World’s Tears” in which the narrator is in despair after falling in love but then separated from the object of his love. The narrator feels lost and torn as the “flags” of the ship have been “ripped apart by the winds that felt like thorns, no land, no home in sight”. The despair of the narrator as well as his feelings of loneliness and displacement is verified by the next line “I am abandoned / Abandoned by the light”.
