May is Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. For a start, here’s an interesting and different take on the meaning of the phrase “a cry for help.”

I'm a therapist and keep this poster in my waiting room, apparently it's saved a few lives


write tomorrow in aquamarine

Week 92


I’ll swallow the affirmations

the bitter punitive taste

you ascribe to me


I’ll look in the mirror and

tepid pulchritude will stare back

with hollowed out eyes


I’ll flip the calendar

and trace my needs

in cursive letters

ink drawn

from my veins


I will close this

sad season with

arrhythmic potions

to silence my aching heart

I will write

tomorrow in


and become one with

the water of the sea
