Emma has been writing for years and only recently begun to post and perform her work. She tends to pop it under the noses of folks on the CommonWord Blog Site and the good people here at Write OutLoud. She is appreciating the kind support of fellow writers and readers over the NorthWest and welcomes your feed back warmly. She finds writing therapeutic and relishes the creative out-let for her experiences and thoughts. She hopes her work strikes a chord with readers and listeners respectively. If her work is warmly recieved, makes people think and transforms their views-Emma is happy. As a Drama graduade Emma also gets to excercise her performance skills at open mic nights and intends to widen her experience in the Performance Poetry arena. She is excited to have had her first collection of poetry published in 2010. Entitled 'EveryNothing' If you would like a copy, let her know.
Everynothing I am every smile I've been offered And succumbed to Impulsive, contagious Between me and you I am every speck of sun That's bathed my skin in bronze Every ray of hope that's whispered "It won't be long" Till you have your time Till for you they'll be sun shine I am every book I've read Every word it said Every song who's lyrics, within me reside Everything that makes me explore And all that makes me hide I'm all the love I've been given All the heart felt,nightmare melted care I've been bestowed I am all the gentle words, soft sentences of hope, I've heard Generous globes of phonetic fondness to soften my world I'm every dramatic pause A stop to tie the laces I'm all that happens In and around the spaces I'm all the invisibility You see in random places The slowness in the haste The blur in rushing faces I'm every mistake, and bed, Ive made I'm every moment stolen, wasted or paid For, wholesomely, wholeheartedly, reluctantly I'm every word spoken carelessly Or delicately, mistakenly A loyal miss-hap to take a miss- step for I'm all you bargained for, haggled for All you wished for, and wished not for I am all of this And more.
