Poetry

Lately, the waitHighway traffic, seamless like the skies
of October; distant lights foretell
a visitor.
A gush of wind, a magnolia laden threshold.
Another blackout.
We share
the
much sought after
lunacy.[Lunar/lunatic]

Lately, the wait by MehreenFreed

From the suggester: The hushed tone
of this poem is quite lovely, and I love
how atmospheric it is. The formatting is
very interesting, too.

Twenty YearsWe're icebergs
disguising as ships.
We float along so aimlessly and
crash into this shit!
I can't make
the things you create.
You give and give and give and give and
all I do is take
what I want
and what I deserve.
Our boys are yours. Our girl is yours. Anne,
you've sure got some nerve!
Nobody loves me
like I do.
I push everyone away
and find someone new.
We're clean clothes
lying on the floor.
We love and leave and love and leave like
two revolving doors!
I should have
the praise and respect
of everyone and everything that
I have ever met.
Life is hard,
but I carry on.
You think what you want, but know this, Anne:
I'm never alone.
Nobody loves me
like I do.
I push everyone away
and find someone new.
We're children
hiding from a fight.
We close our eyes and close our ears, but
there's no end in sight.
I still love
all the things we made.
Though they turn their backs and walk away,
that will never change
how I feel.
What a thing to know:
Twenty years as a Godly man; Anne,
you reap what

Twenty Years by Gymdawg

Per the suggester: "Not only is
the rhyming clever, but it packs a
poignant punch with an edge of realism."

August Moon  
     Quiet night.
  I walk this umbra amid fallen ashen
      -my gait tempered in its shadow,
  Hear the north wind wake
      gentle and luke-warm
  Elevated into its murmer
      of lush, summer oaks that stir
  For now like curious whispers
      among their soft forebode;
 Then ranked breath and boreal chill  
        
   will rise, will fall 
  will lapse in it all.
  
 
   I'll wait for an ever lucid darkness
           
           that an August moon lead  
       
  For a small breeze, skulked into
      the rising penumbra of its limbs
 Like shadows to contemplate in silence.
 

August Moon by Fleeting-Epiphany

Suggester: This poem is
wonderfully atmospheric
thanks to the careful
formatting and use of language.

Door to DoorThe first time he had tried them, he cried, and the tears obscured his vision. He understood that was he was seeing was not the world around him, but something different. It was the world how it may be. The woman at the door had been correct, and through his tears he smiled.
“Hello, my name is Maddie.” she had started, not deterred that she was one of the last remaining door-to-door salespeople in the world, or that she was trying to sell her product to a blind man. His cane had hit the door when he opened it, and Charlie, the dog, had given a little woof and wagged his tail at the company.
He supposed she looked him up and down. She was quiet for just a second before she continued.
“It’s not everyday that I get to sell my product to someone who would appreciate it the way you might-- may I ask, were you ever sighted?”
He was taken aback, but found himself answering.
“I was-- years and years ago. Why?”
“What was it that made you lose your

Door to Door by Goldfish-In-Space

Suggester: An interesting idea,
and well written. What really
stands out to me is the way
she manages to neatly tie up
the beginning and end in a
circular plot structure. I just love it!

they were divorced before you criedI found hope walking a corner down 9th and I was afraid to ask, really. I was afraid to ask, "I'm sorry to bother you but did you kill your wife?" And I kept praying that if I did muster the courage to croak out loud, his jaundiced eyes adorned in kohl would widen and his gaze would fall before he sighed and muttered, "I'm not who you think i am and she cheated on me."
I would laugh because I expected it and my stature would stagger. It would lower and crawl into the pavement with my dignity as hope stands there worried, asking if there was a gas leak in the basement. I wouldn't stop laughing until he asked why and when he would, I'd smile. I'd smile and wipe a tear before murmuring to him, "Happiness sleeps around the minute you leave the house. I haven't laughed this hard since she told me she was going to stay."

Per the suggester: "I rarely read any [prose],
but the wordplay in this and the lasting message
are absolutely fantastic."

Prepared by: thetaoofchaos
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.
