Student, new to the poetry scene. Looking for critical feedback to allow me to really develop my writing skills. My work focusses on (but is not exclusive to) the juxtaposition between religion and sexuality.
Friends and foe Full of rage you curse me your words they burn me Scared, shaken, wanting to retreat Want to hide under the covers, won’t ever peek outrage, scorn, malice and hate you damn me, no compassion, your anger unabated Try to ignore you, but I must deal with you and those like you every torturous day You won’t afford me an ounce of humanity Oh Lord... “kill him”, you say. High hopes I have...high hopes Soothing words and kind faces A spirit of strength, a community of love and respect Something, I never did expect Friends. You are my friends.
