Anxiously studying the works of Poe and Gillman, horrific poetry blends into reality, as Laura suspects that her abusive ex-boyfriend has broken into her new flat.

Submitter Statement

I hope you appreciate Her Coloured Cage, we put 3 meticulous years of work into it haha Narratively and thematically it's about coping with and accepting your trauma. Even if you didn't get that it's okay to just enjoy the pretty colours and Gothic poetry, that's a big part of it as well :)
