Untitled Poetry Submission

My mind is like cascading glass. Each shard shatters beautifully, into smaller pieces after every trauma. I piece myself back together, grasping at anything to hold back tears. My own mind cuts deep into my flesh, exposing old wounds that are damned to never heal. Each breath continuing life, each breath continuing pain.

We love all submissions here. However, we would like to take this time to say, if you are hurting, feeling lost, or hopeless, please talk with someone. You are a beautiful person, with people who care about you, even if it feels like you’re alone. As someone who has personally struggled with their own mental health issues, believe me when I say that you are not in this alone, and there are others who understand. If you are ever in crisis, I’ll be including a link that has many numbers for helplines.
