Summers Lost god died today. or maybe it was tomorrow. i can't remember.
"ask anything."
static skies;
grizzled blue
sketching down
to sewer lines:
like a wish
on a dead star.
the feeling of gritted teeth
and fingers crossed
until they break.
shame tasted
like a scalpel
and a brick wall
against my throat.
and i was
chewing concrete
when i said,
"it's okay."
swallowing cinder blocks;
stuffing steel under skin.
sugar-sweet
on my cheek,
like book pages:
"where have you been?"

"Summers Lost" by poetic-headache

Suggester says: "The ambiguity
of this piece and its vivid and
creative imagery make it stick
out as a great bit of poetry."

Stephanie - Collab(I wrote us in free verse over every inch
               of your tattered surface ).
you were the beatific grin
of a kindergartener high off oxygen,
mouth stretched wide as the entrance to hell,
black tongue bleeding virtuous sin like ichor.
(You taught me praying was for the weak
      as I fell for your gypsum nails,
               white teeth scrabbling over my chalkboard frame).
               
scribbled flesh tells no love story
but three layers of skin
worn thin along the length of our feverish bones.
(Garden flowers tucked away worms and dirt,
      my ribs hoarded misspellings of my mother's name).
dipping your origami limbs into my ink,
you lost yourself within the dark tangles
of my labyrinth roo

Stephanie - Collab by winterkate & DearPoetry

A gorgeous example of a well-executed
collaboration, in which each artists' skills
and styles blend into and complement
each other in perfect synchronicity.

My Bullying Experiences by C-y-n-d-i

Suggester writes: This piece of writing
is more than just a recollection of a
progression of mental scars, it is an
outstanding push by an individual
to raise awareness of the direct
and indirect effects of bullying
from the bullies and their victims.

Etiology by cliffthetotoro

From the suggester: "I always love
a well-done story of gender distinctions.
This is a marvelously-told, nearly nonfiction
piece which analyzes the disease of society."

Prepared by: LadyofGaerdon
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.

Thank you for featuring My Bullying Experiences. I knew there had to be a reason I lived through it, and I think it was to help others going through it now.

To anyone going through bullying now: I love you and you aren't alone.
