Fake Love – Poem

A poem written as an inspiration from the songs ‘Fake Love’ and ‘Outro: Tear’ from the band BTS that is all about loving yourself before loving someone else otherwise it will all end in disaster.



Anxiety

The title really explains it all. The words in the poem itself are complex and extremely ambiguous which makes it hard to understand it without the context. The confusion and ambiguity placed are deliberate to depict what a person who has severe anxiety goes through. The mind is a place of utter chaos for someone who has any form of anxiety. Written from a personal place this one tackles the intensity of being socially anxious.



DEAR MIND

Originally written in the format of an open letter to my 'Mind'. Using the same words I structured it into the format of a poem for my creative writing assignment. The poem is about suffering through severe depression and having suicidal thoughts and written from personal experience.



Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday

A poem written in the context of time about having a recent breakup. Time is considered to be an important factor when going through tough situations. Many people give the same advice about time essentially paves the way for the process of healing, but it also doesn't completely erase the pain. With that thought process I moved forward to write this piece.



SILENCE

A poem written on selective mutism. 'Selective mutism' is a condition where one is incapable of speech in specific situations or of speaking to specific people due to high anxiety levels.
