Poetry and Psychosis

I recently experienced an episode of psychosis, from the turmoil of the soaring highs and crushing lows that defined my delusions I turned to writing as a cathartic exercise to soothe my troubled mind

In the coming weeks I will be posting poems that I wrote whilst in a psychiatric hospital. I had no experience of creative writing before this time, the poems are not particularly good but they do somewhat chronical the cacophony of emotions that I went through

The majority of these poems are inspired by events that I recall, but never actually happened in the real world
