I've been writing poetry since I was twelve. My inspirations are Kipling, Belloc, Keats, Duffy, Dickinson, Big Poppa E and all those poets that got me into this shit in the first place on this wretched site (you know who you are.)

I largely do freeform poetry because I am lazy - from time to time my brain will occasionally remember how to do sonnets, villanelles and sestinas. My poetry springs from my head fully formed, largely. I also have two huge and scruffy scrapbooks of spontaneous poems that I will start to post when I have filled the "second volume". I have written an estimated five hundred poems.

I am working (slowly) on two anthologies that should make their way to kindle some time in the coming year. The first focusing on texture and animism, the second on wildflowers and weeds of the westcountry.

I also write stories, sketch, paint, make costumes and sew; you will see these creations very rarely when I judge them fit to share with the internet. They are largely hobbies and done just for fun.

I welcome critique on all my pieces - unless specified otherwise.

Poets to keep an eye on

Poetry I think is rather special from poets who are doing rather special things.

New Poets to keep an eye on

A collection of new folks who have joined in the last month or so whose work deserves showcasing. We should look after the new people in our community, no matter how long they've been poets outside of dA.

If we share an interest, let me know, I love to chat.

My favourite Groups

Groups I've found friends and useful things in.


So in the space of two years all four of my grandparents died, one of which died in my own house in the room next to me, suffering horribly for a year whilst also bearing a deep resemblance to my own face. I also was in a terrible friendship group full of stupid unhealthy habits and drama for many years, whilst also being in an emotionally abusive relationship. I went to live with some people who I regarded as friends who were openly threatening, violent, volatile and loud - who made it clear they could be pushed to violence. And I recently received a letter from an ex long-term friend who proclaimed that they’d hated me for years and I went through the long petty process of untangling myself from them and their friends.

Now I am finally in a safe space and generally stable, I still find it hard to eat, sleep, approach people socially and have outbursts of emotion in public alone unprovoked (aka I started crying in the street today because I couldn’t afford street food and I was sad about my grandma who died a year or so ago). As a person who had a large and healthy libido I have completely lost it, I jump at loud noises and my mind is never too far away from the situations I went through when I am not occupied. I’ve experienced flashbacks with triggers and strong episodes of disassociation under great stress.

I think its fair to say I’ve been traumatised.</sub>

Its important for me to say that because I’ll often get frustrated because my anxiety should be mopped up by now and that coping techniques for people without these experiences often don’t work for me.

I have been traumatised, I went through a lot of shit, and I have been damaged emotionally. And that’s okay. 

Its okay to be sad about my grandma a year after it happened, its okay to resent the person who sent me a grand letter of hatred and resentment, its okay to not sure how to feel about the emotional abuse, its okay to not be sure how small things like my ex friend’s abusive relationship and my shouty dad factor into things. Its understandable that I think about suicide a lot, less nowadays, but a lot.</sub>

Its okay to not be okay.

I am sorry I haven’t been on much these days and I am sorry if I am ratty, or sad or silent. I will be getting caught up with group responsibilities very soon, I promise. Communicating is very hard.

Kindle update - I am writing one about Buddleia, I see a lot of them in the industrial district and their greyish leaves and droopy heads match the sodden weather very well.

Phisisturae's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Literature
United Kingdom
Hello - I’m Phis.
I'm a poet of sorts, but I also love to get crafty now and again. I'm a uni student studying religion and creative writing, currently recovering from a severe anxiety disorder and chronic depression.

Mainly my poetry is about my mental health, my disabilities, my relationships, my pantheism, animism and witchery as well as other fun things like that. I aim to be an honest and enjoyable person to be around.

I try to comment on 5-50 poems a day, sometimes I just lurk because I have a lot of health issues which mean I can't do much more than stare at a screen some days.

Phisisturae is a nonsense word I made up because it looked very pretty. I've decided its an noun that describes the act of something very mundane catching your eye in a very extraordinary way, the profound appreciation of sundry objects and phenomena (Fih-cyst-tour-eye).



Would you buy a book of poetry on kindle I wrote about British plant-life which will be around $3/£2? 

3 deviants said Yes - as long as it was below $4 and on somewhere accessible like amazon.
2 deviants said No thank you.
No deviants said No, but if it was about something else I might. (please comment!!)
