In early 2020 an acquaintance told me that her therapist recommended that she write poetry for catharsis. A few days later I sat down with pen and paper, and a deeply cathartic poem appeared. Thus began my reconnection to writing poetry. Now dedicated to the craft of poetry, my writing quickly spread beyond catharsis. Having had two poems published, I am now working towards his first collection.
This poem appeared in the ‘The Storms‘, issue 2, February 2023.
Another of my poems will appear in this anthology from Broken Sleep Books in early 2024.
