Author, artist and passionate mental health campaigner.
In this extremely intimate collection of poetry and artwork, Michelle looks at how these all combine together in the highs and lows of human relationships. This book shines light on the dark side of intimacy, sex , love and the human condition.
'If all poetry were this human and raw then I would read it all of the time! Michelle’s words and imagery are powerful and perfectly written in a way that I have not experienced from a book of poetry before!' - Review From Amazon UK
A brutally honest, raw collection of poetry accompanied with original artwork. This collection pours desperation, confusion and anger as Michelle describes spending her entire childhood from just twelve years old sectioned, trapped in psychiatric units being subjected to tortuous abuse. This book will open your eyes to what really goes on in the mental health system.
'I have never read anything as raw and powerful as this collection of intimately worded reflections on the darkest of times! Michelle’s bravery in publishing such a heart wrenching combination of experiences should be applauded and this is a book that I think should be an essential read for anyone who works with children or thinks that out of sight is a policy that works!
Thank you Michelle for your searing honesty which deserves to be awarded and shared at every opportunity!' - Review from Amazon UK
