K.Y. Robinson is an introverted writer based in Houston, Texas. She began writing poetry and short stories in her pre-teens after secretly reading letters that her mother wrote to God tucked inside her bible. They taught her a great lesson on vulnerability. As a withdrawn child suffering from an undiagnosed mental illness, Robinson spent a lot of time alone. Writing naturally became her sanctuary.

With unapologetic candor and vivid imagery, Robinson draws inspiration from being a woman of color, trauma and mental illness survivor, and hopeless romantic. She believes in undressing every emotion until they’re naked and have no where else to turn to but pages. She believes that poetry is the weapon and the healer.

K.Y. Robinson is currently not accepting new questions.

Struggling with mental illness, low self-esteem, feeling lost, and trauma shaped the way I loved and how I failed to love myself.

Longing was inspired by my need to turn lust into love. Being in a constant state of longing for anything that resembled it. It was also about taking my body back. I assert my sexual agency as an act of resistance. After being traumatized repeatedly, I felt that my body and any notion of pleasure wasn’t mine to embrace and experience. I wanted to take my power back.
