I Emerge Divine

by fyarlgiles


crystal showers

heal my mouth

wash away the taste of fruit

give me dreams of

strange desire


and new

like lily buds

Pull  fire from your face till you’re boarded and blue

with eyes dark as stone


and icy to touch

though melodies spout from your heart

red and true

be quiet as moonlight

for songs strip you bare

Hearing Her

by fyarlgiles


To Hear Her

 it all returns.

the dark room,

the shrinking veins,

the strong, rageful pumping at her center

it travels like wind

here and then gone

waking and sleeping on a clock of it’s own

Hearing Her by Angie Hoover- Hillhouse

I wrote this several months after my girlfriend broke up with me in 2004. It’s probably published in my high school livejournal along with other evidence of teenage angst. We all used to feel our feelings very publicly in those days. I’m sure I wrote this hoping that she would contact me out of pity. Now I’m marrying a man, and she’s teaching english to impoverished Ecuadorian children.
