Dead Bird HeartI never noticed the way ash looks like feathers.
I become aware of the shores where my body
folds to meet itself, doubles over so that my hair
seems to grow like roots into the ground
keeping me from ever lifting my head again.
Of all the things she told me, she missed this one:
what to do with the ashes.
Hers is a dead bird heart—
grey-haired and grey-feathered.
She is paler than she has any right to be,
But her eyes are open, and she can see the sky
where a roof once was.

Dead Bird Heart by AzizrianDaoXrak

The extended metaphor and gorgeous imagery
in Dead Bird Hearts by AzizrianDaoXrak
will bring readers to a dead halt at the end.  The
descriptions of this are perfectly placed;
readers will be left begging for more.

Rhapsody In Zero GravityIs deep space silent?
Amid the revolving spheres.
In perpetual night.
Or does God whisper?
Echoing across light-years vast.
Filling the void with song.

Rhapsody in Zero Gravity by Blacksand459

Taking on an unusual form, Blacksand459
crafts a contemplative, beautiful image.

Nascent DeathDeath borders upon our birth
Such a barren wasteland embraced
within the Empress' nurturing bassinet
She envelops me in the ice-clad evergreens
And ivy baby-blanket; snaring, strangling -
The veins that bind. She is life;
Mother nature, Queen of repose
and fair Demeter. My eye
fixates upon the hollow, never-ending
sunlight. Where time has become a dazed,
gentle creek. This bizarre entrapment
shrouds itself in serenity. Seemingly endless
as I traverse to Styx
                                    Yet now our cradle
                 Stands in upon this weary grave
        Where, unbeknownst, smirking Hades knocks
     A debonair Death; divining precious cards

Nascent-Death by ndris970

Prompted by the quote:
Death borders upon our birth,
and our cradle stands in the
, the author employs
multiple mythologies to plumb
the depths of the concept.

Get lost in the language of

C’est aujourd’hui. C’est aujourd’hui que je le rencontre. C’est aujourd’hui que je l’affronte à nouveau.
C’était au secondaire. J’étais petit, timide et studieux. Lui était populaire et voulait un souffre-douleur pour se remonter. J’étais la victime facile. Pour ces gens-là, se compliquer la vie est inutile. Il n’avait même pas besoin de faire l’effort pour se trouver des idées. Il avait un groupe de copains pour cela. Je me rappelle la première journée. Il était en dessous d’un escalier en train de fumer des cigarettes avec des amis. J’arrive pour aller à mon cours, et lui et ses comparses me bloquent le chemin. Il me lance : « Je crois que tu t’es trompé d’école. » Cela devait être drôle parce que tous ses sujets riaient. Il m’a fallu passer par l’autre escalier. Le le

L'affrontement by christianross75

A touching story that reminds us
that everyone deserves forgiveness.

Prepared by: spoems
Daily Literature Deviations is a group that is dedicated to bringing literature to the forefront of the deviantART community. We attempt to accomplish this by daily featuring Literature artists from around the community that deserve the recognition, but are not getting it.

Each day we will feature 5 deviations from the Literature categories in a News Article. In order to support the artists that we feature, we ask that you :+fav: the news article as well as check out the individual pieces. We understand that each day you may not be able to check out each and every one of the pieces. We just ask that you make an attempt to help support the growing Literature community and these artists.
