Hey. This is basically just an account for stuff I don't feel comfortable posting elsewhere, or stuff I feel like doesn't fit in with my more "typical" writing.

Some of it may be a bit over-the-top, but getting it out helps, and I hope it's at least somewhat relatable to even one other person out there.

dysphoria by ThatStormLeaf
I wrote a poem about the gender dysphoria I've been experiencing. TW for, obviously, dysphoria and one swear word, but I won't change the rating because of that. Haven't written any poems in a while, but with this it's really more the meaning than the words if that makes sense.
