"starstruck" by saltwatersleep

Says the suggester: "Poetry isn't my strongest suit,
 but I know what I like; short, sweet, and beautiful."

inhaling us,
our surfboards,
our balance,
the water
imprinted with our
souls, if it all froze
you'd be cast
the die is cast, Caesar said
you said he said, if it all froze
I'm counting on you
Rome's counting on you
past ten
that's when the stairs diffuse
each step so painful,
we know what waits at the bottom
of the sea the landing
busts submarine skin
steel plated, snake eyes weighted,
you blew a gasket
Marie Antoinette asked me yesterday
how we managed to hang ten
for so long on the wave
of words, of men, of sex, betrayal, sheer luck;
the wave of eyeballs, emerald hummingbird's wings, jasper kisses of monarch butterflies;
the wave of eternal mortality, of archaic nunneries, of traditional forms of self-mutilation and capitalized italicized Love...
I remember how, as if it were
frozen in polaroid
I didn't tell her how we radiated every hue out of our prisms
how we refracted and captured the sun's power and lit every street
for miles of suburbs, disco-balling some sort

"Dominic" by claytonwoolery

From the suggester: "Touching emotion saturated in universal
 imagery, a universal energy. I hope everyone gets the chance
to feel this way."

Stuck by raspil

The prompt was "Make the mundane seem extraordinary,"
and raspil executed it wonderfully.

bye. baby. by Magnius159

Beyond just trying to make you feel sorry for characters, this piece
presents a picture of a junkie's life and lets you decide.

VouloirJe veux m'étendre contre ton corps
Sentir tes cheveux s'envoler sur le sable
Et puis me perdre en toi une fois encore
Avant de mourir d'extase, le cœur instable
Je veux parcourir ta peau de mes doigts fous
Pour mieux découvrir tes ultimes secrets
Et puis recueillir sur les bords de tes yeux doux
La rosée nouvelle, soudainement perlée
Je veux te retrouver à moi rien qu'une fois
Me désaltérer à la source de ta voix
Et puis goûter tes lèvres dignes d'un roi
Qui n'en a pas voulu, folie qu'est cela
Je veux m'endormir au creux de ce nouveau jour
Apprendre à écouter les battements de ton cœur
Et puis faire l'amour sans doute pour toujours
Une dernière fois, une dernière heure
Enfin je te veux mienne, à présent et à jamais
Douce rêverie qu'est cela…

Vouloir by shoknar

The title means "to want," and this poem captures the
 emotional essence of physical desire.

Prepared by: Ebahr
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.
