Poem/Dramatic Monologue: Thomas
Second Sunday of Easter - John 20: 19 – 31

It must have felt like walking into a nightmare.
All those sensible, down-to-earth friends of yours, ranting and raving;
telling you the most bizarre stories;
jumping up and down with excitement,
flinging their arms around you and expecting
you to believe everything they said.

It must have seemed like a betrayal.
When you left they were as grief-stricken as you,
faces blank with disbelief,
shocked, silent , devastated –
even the most ebullient ones –
the atmosphere so heavy with sorrow
you needed to escape
to mourn alone...
