Poem: Painful Reaction

Recommended Posts

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.

Thank you Shinobi! I'm currently working on a collection of poems that are similarly about religion... *maybe* one day they'll be published
