dc.description.abstract“Paintbrush & Other Poems” is a collection of poems documenting different facets of sadness and their contribution to mental illness. It seeks to use writing as a refuge, the way writing is often used, as well as a bridge between others to communicate the things in their life they may not be able to quite explain; it uses poetry as a way to find one fundamental truth, however small that truth may be and invites the reader to not only reflect on it but feel it. Ranging from topics of problems in relationships with others in the titular poem “Paintbrush,” to troubles with self to struggling to keep a handle on depressive symptoms, this collection explores through the use of language the reality of reconciling mental illness despite how hard that may be.en_US
