Bridgett Devoue

Soft Thorns

Soft Thorns is a poetry collection that takes the reader on a journey through a young woman’s life—from reckoning with her looks and sexuality to dealing with the trauma of sexual assault, and finally through the highs and lows of young love found and lost. Bridgett Devoue shares her raw, human story and the lessons learned from living a life fully.

    👎Zum Vergessen

    The thing is it seems childish. It isn't that great when it comes to poetry. Apart from the last few poems rest was just a waste. To be precise. I don't mean to hurt anyone. But that's just the truth.

    beauty does not solve problems

    it’s just a different map

    down the same road

    someone once told me

    they were scared of

    the truth in my eyes

    so i learned to live

    my life blind

    maybe we fall

    in love with sad eyes

    because we see our souls

    reflected in them

    i don’t remember love as a child

    my only teacher being magazines

    and movie screens

    so i spent my life

    searching for fantasies

    but a fantasy in real life

    is also known as a lie

    you can tear someone apart

    just as easily with

    unwanted names

    an undressing gaze

    perverted hands

    a penetrating tongue

    those scenes

    will be replayed

    and paused


    and started again

    with every touch

    and lingering stare

    penetration is not

    the only rape

    i met him at a bar when he told me

    i don’t date women under 5 foot 10

    and i grew smaller

    thinking i would never be

    good enough for him

    so when he invited me

    back to his place for

    drinks and some blow
