Poem: Painful Reaction

2 posts in this topic

Hello all! Below is just one poem from a collection of poems I'm working on that describes my deconversion. In this poem I imagine a typical reaction to my new position. Enjoy!

 

The scooped her fingers

In my throat

Scraped the sides

And dislodged the word

‘Atheist.’

Dripping in blood

And demands.

“Look! That’s how much pain

It’s cost you.”

 

But you were the one

Who caused the pain.

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...



That was very well written, Ataraxia.  You are so good at creating vivid and descriptive imagery with your words!
