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 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. Most of the poems are different poetry forms, and the focus is the release of trauma through poetry. Some are my stories, or things I have observed in other people’s lives, or heard from the sharing of their painful stories. The title is inspired by the feminine Self-loving voice/ force.
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.
