‘Cause Everyone Loves Free!


There are two free chapbooks featured on this website. They are updated every Friday. The poems in these series are meant to be read like a mirror since the forms, themes, and messages tend to contrast each other.  

 

Hanging On Naked tells the story of a young woman with post-traumatic stress disorder. Her mental illness a result of childhood trauma, relationship abuse, sexual assault, and anxiety. This book of poems is like a collection of flashbacks. She paints a vivid picture of her scars. She reopens the scabs on her memories. 

Please note:  All the poems in this chapbook contain triggering images and themes. Other topics not mentioned above include suicide and depression. Please take caution while reading.

This book of poems is a collection about transformation. She finds the courage to break away from her toxic thoughts and love herself. She figures out how to live again.
