it's not a bad day, it's a bad life.

Book 1 of short “free form” poems in the pov of my manipulative thoughts, written as sort of a diary of my horrific high school years that were far from an ordinary coming of age film. (TW; depression, ad*iction, e*ting disorder, self-h*rm, talk of s*icide.)

You can’t just punch someone in the face.

First you warn them it’s coming
and maybe they’ll stop you.

You can’t just take someone’s life.

First you warn them it’s coming
and maybe they’ll stop you.

Then again, probably not.

!Trigger Warning!

Talk of suicide, depression, eating disorders, addiction, self- harm, death, blood, etc.

This collection gets dark dark, so if you feel it may be a little too much for your mental state, please don’t be embarrassed to stop reading. There are trigger warnings in the title of each poem that may have more triggering language, but keep in mind the entire collection is referencing tough topics. This is about my personal experience, so don’t feel pressured to relate directly or continue reading if you’re triggered. It’s a heavy subject and I hope this collection helps someone, but at the same time I know it can harm someone and that is the last thing I want. So please, be cautious with your triggers and otherwise, enjoy!
