There’s a reason for my joviality in my last post ‘Nine‘ and I have been pretty caught up in that – that plus other things has been why no one has seen me around my blog for the past three weeks or so. (Phew, who knew dust could gather so quickly? *Blows cobwebs* *cough cough cough*) Anyhow, my baby’s writing a book – about her life and how she’s overcome a lot of abuse and hardship and has come out the other side stronger for it. She wanted to end the book on a positive note and she said to me that all of the poems that she wrote in her book about the kind of man she wanted to meet to take her out of the mess she was in – she said I fit every one of the criteria, and she wrote the poems long before we met! So she decided that I was to write the last entry in her manuscript, a reply to the poem she wrote about me (before meeting me) called Mr Undefeated. (I’ll ask her permission and I might post it here for you guys to read.)
Shameless plug: the book isn’t ready to be published yet, but anyone interested can follow her on Twitter at @EmpressColleen or Like her Facebook page for the book “Who Feels It, Knows It” – http://www.facebook.com/WhoFeelsItKnowsIt
The poem below is my take on her life, and how it changed and is going to change since we came into each other’s life. Basically, it is my reply to “Mr. Undefeated” Enjoy!
Emperor and Empress
Tortured soul stripped –
painful strokes snowballing;
life not throwing curveballs,
but cat-o-nine tail whipping.
Each new day another trial
worse than the one before
Slave master sharing blows
making scorched skin sore.
Life’s lashes rain down
flaying exposed skin
Abuse on top of abuse
Soul’s tender flesh wealing
Wailing cry assaulting
crispy morning air
Each circumstance another blow
Soul trembles in naked fear
But – wait!
Surprisingly, slave girl gets loose
No timid girl, she –
The searing pain ignites the warrior
within her tiny body
She bucks and fights with everything
Not willing to give in
to life’s abusive lashing blows
She must survive – and win!
Whenever warrior lands a strike
Life rears its ugly head
and comes right back with another blow
trying to knock her dead
But suddenly a Savior
steps boldly into view
and starts helping warrior girl
to beat down and subdue…
Together, the combined pair
match Life punch for punch
until Life – weakened from the fight
buckled, with shoulders hunched
Now sexy Saviour faced the dame
and started to caress her
he tended wounds and made her swoon
They’re facing Life together
Slave no more, once frightened girl
was shown a different life
A world that actually was quite calm,
without the pain and strife.
Romance bloomed fast between the two
as the pair connected
feelings of love grew fast and full
Lost desires resurrected!
Now Emperor and his Empress
The two walk hand in hand
And when Life tries to take revenge
the pair fight back – they stand!
