Blue Crayon is a collection of poetry and prose about mental health and endurance. Rowen Ingrid Parker explores the themes of love and survival in this moving and powerful collection of poems.

I told her that when I feel like self-harming instead of scratching
myself with my nails or paperclips
I like to run a blue crayon across my skin
she smiled a small smile
because she thought that I had found a way to stop
but when I told her that my scars
were the crayon’s doing
she lowered her head
And cried

It would have been better if she did not read it so fast. There was no breaks, (commas, periods). I enjoyed the story (reminds me of my childhood) .. unfortunately.
