The Catatonic Angel By Mark Tulin – Prachya Review

A crisis develops in group therapy.

Catatonic Angel

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. Such a heartfelt story, Mark. If true, your catatonic angel came to your rescue that fatal day ❤

    This is so sad. A lot of ppl think schizophrenics will kill you. They have some of the biggest hearts. Everyone has their own story. What an Angel.

  3. What a tragic story. I was moved by it.

  4. I hope this Angel was released from his pain. Even though he didn’t know where he was going, I pray that God welcomed him Home. He deserved it for saving a life like yours.

    • Thank you, Theresa. I know it sounds real, but it’s a fictional story. The Catatonic Angel is a flash fiction that has some basis in reality.

      Here’s a definition of literary fiction from Wikipedia:
      “Literary fiction, also known as serious fiction, is a term principally used for fictional works that hold literary merit, that is to say, they are works that offer deliberate social commentary, political criticism, or focus on the individual to explore some part of the human condition.”

      I hope this helps,
