Day 5 Denied #OctPoWriMo 2018

Day 5 #OctPoWriMo

THE PROMPT: Write a poem using sensory words to express being denied or being in denial.

WORD PROMPTS:Denied, Refuted, Rejected, Spurned, Vetoed


Dear God

Your love is conditional
It smells putrid
Rejection is handed out
Left and right
The taste is bitter, repugnant

I reached out and was spurned
My prison of fear was holding me
I spoke, I acted, I became an outcast
A woman scorned

Yet, I persisted to follow my heart
And now I persist
To deny your existence
Free from bondage
