Introducing…..

In the last couple of weeks the poems that I have written have been interlinked.
At first it was just the way they were coming to me.
And then she began to peek around the corners.
And prod at me.
Whispering in my ear.
Flash of picture in my mind.
I would like to introduce you to Emmellia/Emmie.
They are one in the same as she will tell you.
They each know where the other begins and ends.
They are two separate yet one person.
She is a mystery to even me.
And shy?
Well shy is not an attribute that I would attribute (he he he that delights my senses this morning) to Emmie (so much easier to call her this when writing)
she is recalcitrant at best she is letting me know more and more that she has a story to tell.
Some of it will be written in poetry but there is more then can be conveyed with poems only.
So not sure where or how it is going to come out of me.
Emmie is in charge for this one.
So it gives me great pleasure to introduce to y’all: Emmellia a.k.a. Emmie.
For the first time in a gazillion years a character is making herself known to me.
And she is taking her time so bear with me.
Please grab a cup of coffee and sit awhile with me while we wait for Emmie to decide what next we will learn.

Imprisoned Assassin

A darkness
an illness
resides
deep inside
(little girl
robbed
innocence
lip curled in disdain)
creeping
peeking
from eyes
vacant 
drugged
fear for self
were I to break free.
Rocking in the corner
tears
shed
false
come a little closer
one more inch.
I shall snap
teeth missing
jump back.
Sly smile
rocks these lips
curtained hair
I am a mystery
I am a delight
I am a little secret
a graven tonic.
(Giggles
piercing 
shrill
crescendo
little girl 
jagged will)
One time 
too many
warned I did
words
fists
screams
heeded not 
knowing better
thought you were bigger
thought you were stronger.
Strength is nothing
brought to knees
feral
blood founts 
bathing me
swirling
watching
life slowly fade.
(little girl
happy at last
justice done
jailed no more
freedom fast)
