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.

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

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

I'd love to read more of your work.  You should post more of it on here in the future! :)
