I am a collection of
Unhelpful thoughts and
Unhealthy behaviors
Dearly earned as means of
preservation of a self
That was never me

Hello there,Tim,
Very relatable poetry. "Don't believe everything you think" comes to mind as I read your poem, which is a go-to affirmation for me when needed.
Thank you,
Now I'm off to read Spirals Entangled!

I really enjoyed this short but meaningful poem. It's very relatable and human.

"To fly is to fall."

Just the absolute best group a person could hope for. I love you all. Thank you so very much.
