A Mental Health Limerick My pillow caresses my face, comforter and body embrace. Snug solace for my soul from depression’s black hole when life and I need our own space. Copyright © 2018 Alicia T-Rust. All rights reserved.
The Face of Mental Illness My face, calm and expressionless. My eyes, focused sternly on nothing.
Glimmering smiles, Laughter cherished, Ardent love for humanity. Her presence enriched all, and yet… the Power, the Power of the inebriated and the reckless… Tragically ripped her away from this terrene world. In memory of Taylor Marie.
