Poets speak from their heart painting a mental image that touches their readers heart.

Shakespeare……a bunch of cliches strung together…..is it cliche if he said if first…or is he just the most famous one to say it?

Why have links to poetry on a PTSD web page?  PTSD interferes with feelings or amplifies them or distorts them.  Poets comprehend the twisting and try to describe it.  Finding quotes, poems, posters, memes, brief messages that help connect us to another person helps relieve the feelings of isolation and loneliness.
