Leigh’s poetry page is not about romance or the butterflies you get when you look at your love. It’s a page for those who understand that pain is real, mental health problems are real and life is not always a bed of roses. There are thorns too and Leigh has managed to highlight subjects that need to be widely discussed not because they feel good, but because they need our immediate attention.
A fantastic writer and poet, Patrick’s page is a good place to spend time in if you appreciate deep poetry. He is exceptionally brilliant as a poet and is worthy of attention.

An Untwine Me favourite, this is one page that we visit every single day because we value what Kati brings to the world in the form of poetry. Emotions, awareness, inspiration, a dark sense of humour – her potential is limitless.

Anna Lete is a phenomenal person, poetess and perhaps, one of the most gifted writers we have come across on instagram, as far as emotional and turbulent portrayal of one’s experiences arising out of challenges faced by mental health illnesses are concerned. Her words are moving to the point, where you will feel a sinking feeling deep within you. She makes us understand what goes on in the minds of those who suffer.
Unique is an understatement for this wordsmith/poetess who likes to stay away from the limelight and is never caught mingling with the community. We were fortunate enough to discover her extraordinary way with words early on in our journey, and have been in love with her ever since.
Megan Blahnik is a top favourite of ours and is someone who is talented beyond words. She is a force to be reckoned with and has the potential to go the distance and leave behind something timeless for the world to rejoice in. She’s another one who likes to bend rules and constantly challenges the status quo.
Her name is the first one to pop into one’s mind every time you think about people who are raising their voices against the stigma that surrounds those dealing with mental health problems. She is the most active poetess to cover the innumerable issues one has to deal with due to the lack of empathy and awareness about mental health. We love and admire all that she stands for, and her incredibly meaningful writings.
P.S. Our list for May 2018 will focus on bringing you new names from the wonderful world of poetry on instagram. So, if your favourites are not on this list, please have faith that they will show up on our upcoming lists. We will try our best not to repeat the same names unless compelled to do so (in exceptional cases) because of someone’s outstanding work or overwhelming audience votes.
