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.

Remittance of Evil

Screen
predominate
figures flicker
fast
slow
advance forward
rewind
this here
these shots we show
your world
your reality
your explanations
time to reap
that which you have sown.
Children have died.
You laughed 
power play
bringing others to their knees
corruption
gangrened 
all limbs
needed to be pruned
needed to be cut back
needed to be culled
to prevent further rot
from forming.
Colleagues
turn away
no longer willing
to play 
stupid game
lost you have
protest all you want
no returning from this.
Potted old man
humored 
no longer pandered to
sycophants fleeing
delusions
rended with reality
burnt
fires flaming
retribution has come
finding you wanting.
