Welcome to Steak Knife Poetry, a collection of poems and thoughts about being a rape survivor. I created this website as a therapy tool for my recovery from rape. I created it to have a healthy and productive outlet for my experience, and also to provide educational resources and awareness for sexual assault.
Steak Knife Poetry is an E-book that is a collection of my poems from 2001 to now. I am constantly adding new poems as they strike me. You will find in the drop-down menu a list of each chapter.
You can buy Steak Knife Poetry Zine online at my Etsy Store Creative Cloud Designs.
80% of sales goes to benefit a local sexual assault organization.
In this website you will also find my Blog, which is a journal of my day to day thoughts along with news articles about sexual assault and rape recovery. You will also find a Sexual Assault Resources section including sexual assault websites to national organizations, as well as a book list for books to read, a list of phone numbers you can call, effects of sexual violence to victims, a how to help guide, how to prevent sexual assault, self-care tips for survivors, and safety planning.
A special note to you if you are a survivor. Thank you for visiting. I hope you have the courage to heal from such a heinous act. If you are suicidal from it, please hold on, I implore you. Just don’t give up on yourself, You did not deserve what happened to you, and it’s not your fault! There is hope. I love you even if I don’t know you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
