I keep my promises…

I like to wrote poems. I like the way you have to really consider the texture, the feel, the setting and the consequences of the chosen words. I like the fact that it is a stark contrast to my usual free style of writing, that it is measured and weighed and evaluated several times, unlike this, which is just coming out directly without any censoring (except major typos). That said, please excuse typos in poems; the weighing and mulling was done at the time of writing , not the time of typing.

Here are a selection of poems I have written over the years. The content largely deals with my struggles with depression, anxiety, paranoia and anorexia and self harm. Don’t read these if you are easily triggered or in a really bad place. The other thing I should say is that despite my history I haven’t selfharmed in several years and I’m almost fully recovered from anorexia. No matter how bad you feel, you have the power to turn things around.
