    I have been looking into how I can portray OCD with in a typographic context, here are some great examples of how to link the word with the visual. I really like the overall effect these examples have on the reader.

    Suggest a desired topic for a coming poem here; I shall try my best to implement it!

    When people are in distress, their perspective is often inaccurate and their thoughts may be unrealistic. A common feature of depression, anxiety and stress is that a person will focus disproportionately on a ‘worst case scenario’.

    Imagining the worst can actually relieve the fear…

    Stop using them as adjectives. These are real problems people have.

    Olaf will melt when Elsa dies.





    Um, I hate to be that person but…imagine Anna singing Do You Want To Build A Snowman at Elsa’s grave. 

    first of all how dare you

    i’m so done right now

    i’d like to apologies before hand for this.









    i am very sorry.

  6. Dear friends

    I hope you’re doing allright.

    I’ve had a very hard time recently. I’ve been obsessing over death and the passing time for months. I’m terribly afraid I will achieve nothing in life and I can’t stop thinking about how it can all end in any moment.

    Every day is the same. I hear others talk about things I’ve been unable to pay attention to for ages, and I’m trying to understand.

    My hamster died on 31st of March. His name was Krecik (literally: a small hedgehog). He started to have problems with breathing at 11 p.m and I knew there was nothing I could’ve done. I watched him breathe with its mouth for 2 hours, having covered him with his . Its cold, stiff body made me remember that I can’t avoid death.

    I don’t want to end up being forgotten. I’m afraid that I could be the person that is buried on the cementary with nothing, but some old, artificial flowers on their funeral.

    I’m still trying to live, not to exist. It’s difficult, but I’m still trying,

    Stay strong friends and keep talking about mental health. This way my idea will be immortal.

  8. Three Letters


    I can’t write this poem because I’m busy
    Clicking the pen
    Clicking the pen
    Clicking the pen

    It’s funny; when I’m stressed
    I see the germs
    See the germs
    See the germs
    Crawling through my veins
    Like a tunnel
    Like a tunnel
    Like a tunnel
    With no light at the end
    A light, switched off
    Switched on
    Switched off
    When will this stop?

    A life in 3′s
    In 3′s
    In 3′s
    I’m so tired
    I’m up all night
    Checking locks

    Here are some images of a good visual representation of OCD using typography. 


  10. 1. Listen to your parents when they try to teach you about your heritage. Do not dismiss them for being old fashioned or too traditional. There is truth in their lessons and you will learn it when you’re older. Remember that there are things you can teach them too.

    2. Spend more time with your grandparents while you have it. When your mother makes you go to visit them at the nursing home, go willingly. Do not spend the whole trip silent and cranky. Give them a hug. Give them kisses. Ask them to tell their stories and do not let their stories die with them. Cry at the funeral. Ask your mother to explain what the monk or priest is saying.

    3. Stop sucking in your stomach when you look at it in the shower. Stand up straight. Sit up straight. Stop obsessing over your collarbones. Eat breakfast. Eat lunch. Eat dinner. Do not let yourself fall victim to bad habits early on.

    4. Keep practicing piano even though you don’t like it. You will appreciate it later on.

    5. Learn how to communicate effectively early on. Express what you have a problem with and think about what you can do to change it. No one will read your mind and if you have a problem with someone, you have to tell them. It’s easy to complain but what you need to do is change what needs changing.

    6. Do not let your parents pass down their hate. They will try, but ask them how to love properly instead. You are sixteen and you still don’t know how.

    7. Do not fall for boys’ words. Do not become interested in someone just because they are interested in you. Do not date someone because you are lonely.

    8. When he touches you the first time without permission with a smirk on his face, push him away as violently as he came. When he sends you flirty text messages, turn him down firmly. You do not owe politeness to people who do not respect your personal space.

    9. Stop apologizing for your existence. You are allowed to exist.

    10. Read. You hate books because you are not patient enough to finish them. Keep writing and keep reading.

    11. Don’t let the world turn you into a cynic. Don’t let anybody steal your warmth.
