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
