The poems in this collection represent a bold journey into the mind of someone who has experienced deep, profound depression and suicidal ideation. They also represent a dream-like escape from the darkness that seems to surround so many of us.

This anthology offers readers a unique look into the mind of someone living with mental illness and inspiration for those looking to reclaim their healing journey. Arcane Poetry is full of dark humour and sharp sarcasm, as well as hope and inspiration. Suppose you live with mental illness or know someone seeking to understand or overcome their struggles.

If you have ever wondered how it feels to be lost in your own head, this is a book for you.

It’s dark, but with a touch of humor. A message of hope.

Let this freeverse poetry anthology take you on an adventure through madness and back to sanity.

Depression and suicidal ideation — It’s one of those things that takes a lot of courage to get through and come out on the other side, but it’s worth the long journey toward wellness.

It can be difficult to cope when you or someone you care about is struggling with a mental illness. Sometimes it feels like there’s nothing you can do to make things better. But remember, you are not alone. There are people who care about you and want to help. You can get through this.

The reader will get from reading Arcane Poetry an understanding of the experience of living with mental illness. They will also come to understand that the healing journey is possible.

Arcane Poetry is a journey for the mind: through confusion, disappointment, wonder, love, facing a hostile world, coming-of-age, getting lost in the depths of the psyche due to illnesses and substance abuse, paranoia, delusions, meditations, affirmations, ascension to manic heights, disillusionment, mysticism, and hopeless romance.

“As an author, I have experienced first-hand the anguish and turmoil that comes with mental illness as well as addiction. I have also battled suicidal thoughts and tendencies. My experiences have given me a unique insight into these topics which I am passionate about discussing and writing about. I believe that a candid and courageous voice is important in the conversation around mental illness and addiction. I hope that Arcane Poetry can help to open minds and hearts to the realities of these issues, so people will be able to see them from a different perspective, and to better understand themselves. My goal is to help others who are struggling with these issues and those that care about them by offering an inside look at a neurodivergent mind.

I am a mystical poet with an original irreverent style. I approach poetry and writing with honesty and openness, and I believe that this is what makes my work unique and powerful. I am not afraid to explore the darkness within myself or within the world, and I feel that this honesty is what makes my work resonate with people. My experiences with mental illness and addiction have given me a unique insight into the human experience, and I feel that my voice is important in the conversation around these issues.”
