He Baptised Our Bed


This piece is about a time in my life when I experienced portrayal and infidelity. It was the shock more than anything, and a instant rush of anger which made me respond the way I did. It was the least he deserved, I do not regret it, it took away this anger. And I left, left him where he belonged because I knew my worth; I pitied him.

I then found forgiveness. I forgave him not for him, but for me. So that I could free myself from him, creating my own happiness.

    Your poem shows exactly what you’ve written in the description….. It shows the anger and betrayal yet shows your maturity and forgiveness to have written the words that you have chosen… Well done!
