Ride these emotions recklessly..

Know That I Too
by B4 n/a

To You, With Love, From Me

Please know I too have felt there is nothing left,
been afraid, and out of hope.
Please know I too have felt there is nothing left
and did not know if I could cope.

Please know that I too have felt alone
and watched my strength drift beyond my view.
Please know that I too have felt alone,

Stop Romanticizing Mental Health
by Shay Grace

Anorexia, Anxiety, Depression, Self-Harm, Suicide
How you have become my friends
You have grown up with me and have been by my side
Friends I could not live without
You guys have controlled my life
And have left me at the end of my rope
What I go through every day is very real
You have put me through the lowest darkest times
It angers me when people put off my issues
Like they don't even care, they don't even try

the boy in the mirror
by anon d

So desperately i tried to right my wrongs, healing the scars i had left behind.

Such a terrible card i dealt him because i was incapable of loving him.

All the times i told him how much i hated him making sure he knew how little he was worth.

How afraid he must have been of me, each time i showed up more battered then the last.

So regretfully i hugged the boy in the mirror.

The Weight of Calling 988
by Frangipani Retrograde

It's been a week since I last showered
Can't force myself to get ready for anything
If I wake up it's a miracle 'cuz I haven't gone to bed for days
I just fall asleep with the lights on
I wish I wasn't here,
I wish I wasn't here.

Nobody knows but I'm living a lie
Sit at my desk and I'm wondering why
I have to be affected by losing my friend

When I Am Up (for Mental Health Month)
by B4 n/a

When I am up, every sky is a boundless, cloudless expanse of brilliantly blinding blue.

When I am up, I am William the Conqueror and William Shakespeare and William Jennings Bryan all in one.

When I am up, life is an eternity of perfect days punctuated by soul-shaking truths at every turn.

When I am up, every person I meet is a fount of infinite expectations.

When I am up, my momentous happiness is so moment-to-moment that if I look away for but an instant I might miss it all.

Armour
by Erin Owens

Dissocaition is the armour my mind
and body so desperately clings too.
Wrapping myself in a hazy dream,
The real me only seen by few.

My laughter muffled, my cries suffocate,
A skill I so perfectly cultivate.
The emotions escape me as I try to feel,
All human experience does not feel real.

All the crimes I've committed
by Kira Walker

What if the perfect murder
Is all that i do on my own?
What if i can't go further
And I'll have to do it all alone?

I look in the mirror and
Don't see myself anymore
All i see is a lifeless body,
A stranger looking, a faded blur
