Mental Health Awareness Pieces

Thu Nov 30, 2017, 8:44 AM
Hi guys, as some of you may be aware, one of my passions is imbedding mental health into my poetry. Well, I've been working for ages an the next piece for me mental health awareness collection, but it remains a bit elusive. I know the topic, and some of the images, but until I can't quite capture it, my apologies in the snapshot "journal poems" as I like to call them (poems that are taken write from my journal when I have a writing itch). They're akin to doodling in my margins, but several of them have inspired other works years later. So they're definitely worth sharing.

Anyways, once I determine how to capture the confusion and slow gradation of sanity from "Gaslighting" in an accurate first person perspective, I promise you'll be the first to know!

I am a writer by hobby and counselor/public mental health professional by trade. Ever since I was 7 years, I have been equally obsessed with psychology and the written word. I find the interplay between irrationality and reason intoxicating, and how humanity mimics nature. It is a beautiful puzzle.

Your poetry, when I compare it to mine, is way better! ^_^

Oh thank you for the compliment. I'm not sure how much I'd fully agree with that. Your work is rather good. A solid use of imagery without being overbearing/cliche. Also a rather nice flow. So, I'd go with "different voice" ;-)
