Emmie/Emmellia Untitled Poem #12

Death comes
slow
creeping close
black bleeds
red
through time
voices call
screaming
searing
pushing
get away
shrieks
bound wrists
blades removed
time taken
hurt self
why
all the same
questions
again
again
again
go away
never hear
never listen
left to bleed…..
leave me
heed me
desolate
languish
grey soulled
fuck you
make it all better
promised lies
like all the others
get away
abandon me…..
huddled
pain
gasped fear
only one
leaving
turn
too late
shade gone
reverberating howl
beating flesh
plunge needle in
finally…..
let her rest.

Endless Time

Hard
no explanation
no words
encompass
emotions fled
tears fall
voiceless
mouth moves
no one
never anyone
hears
caught up
caught behind
false life
pretending glories
mirrored falsities
one upon another
building
lives further
further from truth
further from sanity
further from…..
very 
very 
sad.
Wrapped
wet linens of melancholy
trapped
burgeoning fears
standing on the lip
bizarre mirage
flickering in the future
never
to be found…..
oasis lost.
Sad
truly
truly 
sad.
Wade the depths
sink slowly
beneath
blue waves
float
graceless
eyes wide
tears gather
stars wonder
last breath
time to say good bye
for this sad
it has climbed within
unable to find succor
I want it all to end.
