Writing

Angsty Poetry

So, I used to write a lot of poems, most of them are awful ngl, but it was when I was working through a lot of issues (mostly teen angst, but also just depression/anxiety). I also had a little time to actually work on novels/stories so I used poetry as an outlet for that as well – in that quite a few of my poems are based on fictional characters I created and not my own experience.

I don’t really like writing them now, I much prefer novel writing. This might change in the future, but idk. It’s a nice part of my past, but I don’t feel like I need it as much anymore.

Anyway, I thought it’d be fun to share some of the ones I actually still like:
