My Safety Net by SOUM

If you die I will kill you
spoken with sinister undercurrent

In the abyss of winters despair
I cling on selfishly
hibernating under fluffy blankets

Body depressing mattress
Thoughts depressing mind


SOUM (Screams of Unfettered Minds) is a newly-formed female trio whose poems explore the darker aspects of life championing awareness for mental health and social issues. These private Kiwis consider their style to be raw, unapologetic, unfiltered, cheeky, but always heartfelt, using their poems as their mouthpiece. Twitter/X: @SOUMpoets
