A Virgin’s Release

she twisted herself
into a virgin’s release
mixed up with a fix up
innocence deceased
abashed in the feeling
of what she traded in
a little girl’s promise
for stained satin and skin
a tearful acquiesce
sanctioned by demur
exonerates her heart
and revived what was pure


I haven’t written much poetry in a while, but last night it was impressed upon me to write a piece about the struggle and consequence of sex outside of marriage. It’s something that many Christians find themselves having engaged in, myself included, and the remnants of its action can be overbearing at times. A moment of pleasure turns into what seems like timeless guilt.

I wrote this in the most simple way I could from start to finish to show that just as quickly as it can happen, so also can the forgiveness we need to accept from God and from ourselves .
