Day 26 – Senses – Reblog

A poem by another friend who joined us on MHA drive. She wrote this poem when she was in a dark place, pretty much sums it all for a lot of us.

Please do check she’s got quite and artistic blog.

Being sucked away from your being

You put on a brave face

To distract them from the shadows

Every breath is an effort

You feel like you’ve run a marathon

Living is like breaking nails
