I liked your use of alliteration that went through most of the poem; it gave the poem a very classy feel: the emotions and darkness were there, but the reader wasn't drowned in it.
I did not like the rhythmic-rhyming of "pulpit" and "strumpet" (that is, both words are stressed in turn and rhyme). I don't like it because the rhyming clashes a bit with the rhythm. It's a shame, because I like the word choice.
Other than that, the poem was very well done. I enjoyed it.

I have trouble interpreting poems, but I'll take a shot at this one!
I like the beginning, alliteration is always a great way to start a poem!
I don't know if it's intentional or not, but the second and third last paragraphs start with lower case letters. Does that come under some sort of poetic freedom? Not sure.
But great work!

there's just something about your poetry that completley engulfs me into the story. I love it.
