    I wrote the poems in high school and they were published in my school's annual art appreciation book. The poems are very depressing. I had a lot of gender dysphoria at the time and my mother had noticed I was dressing differently and told me if I came out I couldn't come home or see my siblings ever again.

    The hand was from a reoccurring dream of my body crumbling away.

    I also was uncomfortable with drawing women or focusing on the female form at the time because it gave me dysphoria so that's why all my drawings are of men.

    I wish I could travel back in time to give myself a hug and say everything is going to work out.

    (Poems typed out in case they don't show up well in the photo)

    Numb to suffering
    A solitary tear blossoms into a flood
    Darkness fills my heart
    Who can save me now?
    I'm dead on the inside
    Suffering, suffocating in the emptiness of a soul forgotten

    Leaves of regret
    A cloud of smoke disguises the memory of pain
    Faded time comes into focus,
    My heart awakens to the dagger of misery,
    Temptation for another fake happy moment,
    That tears another old scar open,
    Painful thoughts are hidden
    Within the temporary numbness[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    For some reason the Tapatalk labels aren't working. I marked this as transgender since I talked about gender dysphoria in this post but oh well! lol

    I can see the pain in your art. I hope you are doing better now. You are talented. Tapatalk can be glitchy unfortunately. But I have actually decided to change the prefix to trigger warning because of the depressing nature of your art.

    Ok thanks :)  I was wondering if I should have put a TW so I'm glad you changed it.
