For You

This is a collection of poems i've been writing since the start of my hiatus. Some are sloppy, and some i'm incredibly proud of. These take me from heartbreak, suffering and rock bottom; to healing, brushing off and starting out fresh- in no particular order.

I'm finally at a place where i've started to find peace in these experiences, and i've realised that once you become comfortable with that, you become less shy with sharing them out.

And that's why this collection is titled 'For You'; because to whoever comes by this and decides to read it, if you can relate- to whatever extent, it's for you. I hope you find yourself in these words, get lost in these words, and enjoy these words, just as I did.

Thank you.


7. When I Thought I Hit Rock Bottom

They only tried to push me down further.

They only tried to strip away what was left of me.

They left me cowering in the corner-

drenched in shame, tears and hopelessness.

"Do not go gentle into that good night.

"Rage, rage, rage against the dying of the light."

You wrapped yourself around my throat-

you suffocated me-

and you enjoyed watching me suffer.

Do NOT go gentle into that good night.

All I ever knew were the restraints

that held me back.

But you were fear and I am hope,

I am stronger, and I will 

not go quietly nor gently.

When you hit rock bottom, the only way out

is up.

And that's exactly where i'm headed.
