Emmie Untitled Poem #3

Bruised eyes
broken spirit
moves furtively
clinging to shadows
wanting
needing
to be unseen
unminded
allowing for escape
allowing reprieve 
from hands that walked
upon dainty flesh
pressed deep
finger prints
painted upon 
child thighs
mouth grimaced
blackness 
retreat deep
slide the door shut
deep rattle
find within
an oasis 
to cling 
while in real time
pain is lingering
dancing across sizzled nerves
wringing from
tortured mewls
even as in the sun she dances
alone
away from
those who would harm
who would use
who would abuse
she finds freedom here
for now…..
Time will come
they shall pay
for now
she remains hidden
within the oasis built 
to house her
while the abuse continues.

Emmie Untitled Poem #2

Nightmares
drug fueled
little space
curled
fetal position
tears
pillow soaked
jerk awake
own screams reverberating
off the walls.
Spacy
glazed eyes gaze
see above
arms tied
ankles bound
above
stood the man
crooning
loving words
bile
rising
sees
drop of semen
hears
‘that’s right babygirl lap it up’
rattled roar
foolish man
thought he could control.
Through rage
through need
bounds ripped
teeth sink
fist lands
jaw locked
she will not let go
warned she did of this
no one would listen
she had to protect her….
Found
lead away
catatonic in her gaze
no one will know
none shall tell
one more man
fell to lust
to mischief
one more man
who thought
he could own her.
