Emmie’s Untitled Poem #6

Rain spattered
watch drops race
outside the pane
winter wind blowing
can feel the cold
it settles
over home
over body
over child
removing from here
how to withstand
the degredation
the pain
that is forced upon such a tiny body
blood coursing
eyes blank
not in death
far gone
settled with dragons to protect
kings to slay
queens who nurture
tiny princess loved
not neglected poverty
this one faces.
Blackness rushes in
delve into her mind
locked behind steel
teasing the truth
from convoluted truths
no one knew
no one  could protect
no one tried to save
she lost
no more pain
no more emotion
she protects
the small one
still deep within
eyes shuttered
ears stuffed with cotton
hearing no words of care
hearing only
never ending scream
of her own mind.
