A Peek at My Poetry

Poetry is a method of venting that I began utilising not long after I started making art books. Although I began writing poetry when I was 14, and I continued to write it often, it became most useful to me during the darkest periods of my depression, and I feel that I wrote some of my best poetry then. 

Some of it is painful to look back on - either from me cringing at things I wrote about my crush when I was 16, to legit pain that I ever felt in such despair. I don't often write poetry these days, the last of which I wrote was probably a few earlier this year about Jack. I would love to publish my own collection of some of the work I find is my personal best, and it's something that I have put together - I just need to sit down and figure out how to put it into an eBook haha. 

Today I thought I'd share some of my poetry. I took bits that were a little less detailed - as all of it is personal -, a little more recent (most of it is from 2015) and a lot of it is short. When I write these days it tends to be shorter pieces than long-winded ones.

Let me know if you would be interested in a small collection of poetry in a book as I'd love to know.
