Bad Poetry

Bad Poetry is just what it is, even though, sometimes when we’re trying to write some bad poetry about mental health it actually turns out to be pretty good…… Well, that’s what we tell ourselves. It’s kinda like it’s so bad it’s so good? Maybe that’s too hipster of us and considering that we’re not hipsters, we’re feeling a lot of shame about this category right now. Anyway, we’d love to open this category up to the community and have you share some of your mental health bad poetry. You can email us at submit@massivephobia.com

Ode To Anorexia

I haven't been around Massive Phobia for awhile because I've been so busy with school and volleyball, and volleyball is life, so sometimes things fall by the wayside based on my religious priorities. Squad being my religion of choice of course. I was re-reading some...

So Thirsty

  Usually we give a preamble to our "bad" poems, but this one reminds us that sometimes less is more. For everyone who has been wasting precious life force energy looking to the outside to give them what they already have within, this poem from community member...

Manorexia Island

Manorexia is the urban dictionary term used for males that battle the eating disorder, Anorexia Nervosa. And it's a disorder that most males battle alone as it's not very macho to be a male battling what's been deemed as a mainly female type of disorder. Besides...

Our latest Community Collaboration from C. Essex got me thinking about intimacy and loneliness in a new way. I think most of us have had the feeling of being lonesome in a room full of loved ones. How sometimes the people that are supposed to know you best don’t seem...

#metoo Said Darcy Leu

My name's Kristy, and I'm in charge of Top Ten Phobia Lists around here. However, today I asked to write a piece of poetry, in the vein of bad poetry, that this site creates. I tolerate many people on Facebook, mostly friends of friends, and their political beliefs...
