Poetry

i want you like no one else shouldi want you.
and those words purge
from my lips
like fluorescent moonbeams.
swollen eyes
are darker than they seem
and something was different
in the way you
looked
at me.
it's been a year or so
but the hymns of the air
conditioner
are painless.
and my tank top
is hinging onto your
collarbones
but i don't know
if the melody is on
key.
and ash is spilling
from your lips
even though your
mother
told you smoking is
a breeding ground for
cancer.
will your skeleton hands
smoke me?

i want you like no one else should by Unseen-reality

Suggester: "A scary new take on overpowering love.
This writer takes on the dreaded cliche in an unbelievable
new way that will make you stop and think about the ways
your own heart pounds."

Quake the EarthYou were
drinking
from the rust-rim
galaxy
in quick sips and swallowed stars,
like those remembered
at the bottom of the glass.
I slept
drunk
from the orogeny
of your subduction,
dreaming
of your skin sliding to a fit
against mine
and the tremors we could make.

Quake the Earth by nawkaman

Unique, vivid imagery and resonant
metaphor create an enchanting read.

Smoke and Mirrors: Law EnforcementSoft murmurs.
"Sawyer."
No.
"Josephine."
Go away.
"Josephine!"
WHAT. "What!?"
"Are you sleeping?"
She opens her eyes, suddenly aware that he's right. As she shuffles around in her chair, trying to find comfort again, the police captain comes into focus from across the table.
'Wake up," he barks.
"I'm awake." Irritation stains her voice.
"Josephine Sawyer, I've been captain of the London police for sixteen years. And god dammit, I have never seen someone fall asleep while being interrogated before." He leans back in his chair and lights a cigarette.
She taps her fingernails against the back of her chair, which is all she can reach while handcuffed like she is. "I think you're actually less intimidating in reality than you imagine yourself to be. Got an extra smoke?"
"Shut up," the captain orders. There's a beat of silence. She stares at him while he thumbs through a few papers. He stops and squints at one of them. "Did you sleep through your mug shot, too?"
She shrugs.
He gives an exasp

I agree.

L'Invocation du soirDouce succube,
Viens donc à moi ;
Le drap est rude,
Mon lit est froid.
Ce sommeil triste,
Viens l'égayer.
Trace une piste
Vers tes baisers.
Je suis hôtesse,
Beau magicien,
Offrant ses fesses
Mais pas pour rien.
À mon service
Sera ton âme
Si mes doux vices
Tu me réclames.
Pour toi diablesse
Je changerai,
Dirai ta messe
En pieux curé,
Mais ne me laisse
Pas un instant
Brûler d'hardiesse
En t'attendant.
Que m'en assure,
Naïf humain,
Ta signature
Et je te joins.
Voici le pacte
Que je te vends,
Prends en donc acte
Avec ton sang.


L'invocation du soir by Alraghan

L'invocation du soir ("The night's invocation") tell us the
story about a pact between a succubus and a magician.
Well paced (en vers tétrasyllabiques), the story lead us,
like in a medieval story, to the expected end... This poetry is a
part from Alraghan project : 100 stories of sorcery.

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.
