THE WHY

I wanted to get back into poetry but I wasn’t sure what to write about. I’m not entirely sure how I decided to write character poems, but I think I just had a verse for Haveri’s poem (Poem #1) stuck in my head. Either that or she was in my head for some reason.

It gave me the freedom to be creative while allowing distance between my words and myself. Not only that, but I already had material for it too. Seeing as I do nothing but torture my poor characters, I figured their pain could be harnessed into something more.

CONTENT & TRIGGER WARNINGS

When I write personal poetry, it’s more than just rhymes. It’s about the connection with my soul. A moment, a thought, an emotion . . . or maybe a million of them making me feel like I’m spiraling . . . They’re what I use to fuel my poetry.

TRIGGER WARNINGS: PTSDself-harm, suicide, depression, anxiety, death, abuse, addiction, disassociation, apathy, violence, body and gender dysphoria, etc.

PLEASE LOOK AFTER YOURSELVES.
