I got hugs today on my birthday from my absolute favorite person in the world, GAVIN ROSSDALE!
Friday afternoon freestyle freeform 🙂 + a few added snaps because it's my birthday weekend!!! 😃
Ahh ye great joy of depression!
Who cares, everyone has someone
MOOD "I'm gone and forgotten / maybe it's like I NEVER EXISTED AT ALL"
Thoughts. Ideas. Micropoetry. Micro-thinking. Is that a thing?
Do you guys meditate? This is the equivalent of me sitting in a circle with stone and giving us a journey to travel on... Freshly written this morning, freestyle. It was meant to be a non-rhyme but oh well, a bit seeped out. I hope you like!!!
This is not my best writing, but it comes from a real place of fear as I battle depression and suicidal tendencies. Trigger warning.
Blog cleanup + apology
A movie recommendation of my favorite film since I was 10 years old.
My love was made for you.
A love letter to myself
Possible trigger warning. Depression and suicide is the subject. Be warned. Including original digi art of myself.
I'm starting to believe them when they say "ignorance is bliss"... knowing things suck! This poem was written in freestyle, I like giving myself the freedom to flow. Age of reason, no doubt!!
I am in a financial apocalypse and am seeking help to keep my only ride. Desperately need help, please read & share.
Seems like I'm getting hit from all sides lately; a new mantra to remind me to keep putting one step forward, keep moving, keep breathing, keep living! Pain teaches us that we're alive!! Depression isn't forever! Good times will come again! Don't give up!!
I swear I'm going to take a vow, I swear I'm going to take it now...
a poem + spoken word on leaving and not looking back

Gavin Rossdale of Bush answers a question I submitted on the Kevin and Bean show!
Bits of pieces here & there. Thoughts. Ideas. Microwords. I feel like watching you smile is one of the most beautiful things I can witness in life. If you can't have it, dream about it. Fantasize. Talk to yourself. Loneliness is a state, not a being. Be one with it. Love. Even when you can't. … Continue reading Things of Note by PoeEternal
