What help would a
lovesong do
to enrapture a heart
when it is dead?

    dearest lover
    dearest fire-savaged queen
    dearest tiger-boned boy

    your letters aren't
    the frame of your words,
    they're just words-

    like beasts hung
    on the edge of
    your throats

    like cold, cold nights
    and your bare back
    entwined
    with a ghost
.

empty chambers
empty tears
empty summers-

the sweetness insinuated
in springtide glissando

(vibrations
cadence
portamento)

but tongues unfurl
and the slur of speech
escaping from dark cavern teeth
roil and tumble and

crash.

what should've been mockingbirds
were crows that scratched
vocal chords into pieces,
abrasions
bound to unforgettable

(and unrequited)

    so,love
    do you hear me now?

    can you listen with
    ears tucked in snow
    and wet hair?

    can my song uplift you
    to a postmortem heaven

    or would it stay
    in the silence?


monsoon disasters
of an aching chest,
shattering
crumbling glass

but lest it never happened
for the first
(hopefully not the last).

    What help would a
    lovesong do
    to enrapture a heart
    when it's dead?
11/6/13 (well 5 to be exact but I edited this thing anyway)
 
Dedicated to the unrequited Eponine in Les Miserables.

Funny to dedicate something to a fictional character. But I feel her though, loving someone who can't love you back. 

That feeling when you know your crush would never ever ever like you back </3

This is very well put together and meaningful.  "Tongues unfurl" is such a cool phrase.

Pretty good.  Got my book published (finally!).  I see you got a DD!  Congratulations!  Not sure why I didn't see that in my inbox, though...

Snowed in today (and yesterday, and probably tomorrow).  Cold too.  But the smooth whiteness (or ice crystal) is kind of pretty.  =)
