Welcome

FREE WRITING

I've been introduced to the broken crowd,
The tight-lipped, sarcastic quips,
Scars up and down the esophagus
From the screams that got torn out their throats.

Welcome to the new in-crowd,
The most dangerous person to you is yourself.
Dark humor is only funny because
It covers up the reality that we're facing.

The new trend is to
Keep all of your feelings inside,
To speak through the wounds you give yourself,

The Color of Lies

Slightly scuffling, scuttling- crawling,
Tip-toeing tangents around words,
Telling without saying completely, exactly

Scarring the insides of every artery and ligament,
Every vein that led to your heart
bursts in a flurry of varying colors.

But all you see is red.

Red is the color of lies,
Bright and pungent,
Staining your vision and the walls,
Stinging your nostrils until it crawls
Into your eyes.

The Unspoken #MentalHealthMonth

FREE WRITING

It's been 17 days.
17 days since his last setback.
He couldn't go 2 days without indulging on it before, next he couldn't go 15.
I hope- no, I pray- PRAY that he never looks at it again.

Do you know what I'm talking about yet? A side of addiction that hardly gets talked about- the "He Who Must Not Be Named" of the addiction world. And yet, it's everywhere- on billboards, advertisements, social media, pop-ups, everywhere, EVERYWHERE.
I live...
