Shades of Pemberley, Chap 3
The sun did not dare raise its bright head in Mayfair the next morning. The glass window panes were steadily beaten with a near constant percussion of wintery rain. So it was of no surprise to the household when their new mistress called for breakfast to be sent to her room and not to be disturbed due to a headache. In fact, most of the staff believed it a wonderful sign of the mistress' love for their master, and it brightened their daily chores significantly in spite of the black cloud of Miss Darcy's disappearance.
Languishing in her bed was never something Elizabeth Darcy tended to indulge in. But waking to the dreadful weather out of doors and to the nightmare that had stirred her from bed just the morning previous, she was in no hurry to rush downstairs to an empty household. Lizzy cursed her weaker sex as she punched her pillow once, wishing she could have traveled with Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam. Her mother had always lamented to her that she should have been

losing buoyance
pulling away
closing off
bit by bit, inch by inch
i know the signs
and yet i sit
like a babe newborn
unable to protect myself
the wounds still too new and too deep
to scab over yet
in the churning waves
you were my buoy
saved me from the watery grave
and my self
but now i'm treading water
for hours and hours alone
the sun is setting over the horizon
and i'm so tired
i want to stop kicking
and slip under the surface

Ode for an old soul
California, California
Where she hails from this day
A friend of mine if I may
Emy, Emy, Emy
Such a beautiful name to say
To her gratitude I pay
We're down, we frown
She's there with a sword to slay
and keep depression at bay
She's brill, she's caring
And she's always there to say
"Come on let's roleplay!"

Helter Skelter
Down, down, down we go
No way to stop
Brightly colored flashes distract and retract
Merry music bends and turns like the curves guiding me faster down
Even if the will was there
Nothing would stop this spiral into the depths.
And with each passing second, the path is slicker,
the lights brighter, the music more sacrine sweet
Until I want to choke from it all
Until I am so twisted around that up is down and down is up
Like Alice followed the rabbit down that blasted hole
so I spin and spin, my head reeling, the defeated in the battle for balance.
What if at the end of the slide, there is nothing?

Burrowing Deeper Still...
It began as a gnawing in my chest.
Slowly I felt the tissue break  
piece by piece
sinew by sinew
snappy off into tiny bits of soft muscle and blood dropletts.
I can barely feel it, but I know it's there.
That nagging, horrible scraping feeling
as the layers of tissue flake away, jagged edges
And then it begins to ache
to rip at the flesh as though a drill
burrowing deeper through my body
straight towards my heart.
I'm powerless to stop you.

writer's anguish
the intimidation of a blank page for many writers warrants
knees clattering together like muted castanets
fingers frozen around a waiting pen as if caught in the winter’s
first frost
retinas fixed in fear at the pureness of paper that words could
never pollute.
the whimsical whiteness spurs only visions into my weathered mind –
my pen rushing to fill in the humorous stark space
with the populations of the heart and sympathies of the soul that
overwhelm me.
this daily race
never won this ever-going struggle
never resolved.
another page to be filled
its virgin qualities to be had by my over-zealous pen.
