White RoseSirens are singing through the storm
A white rose Blooms in a garden of thorns 
                 A Darkening Sky
                 A Hallowed Cry
                    Sirens are Singing 
                      But you never ask why                      
Emergency Lights flash in the cold
A Struggle that has long since grown too old
                 Silence Rushing In
                 Whispers in the Wind
                     The Darkness Seeping in
                        But you never ask why
        All of Her

White Rose by ZeroSkyler

With a tense, tumbling rhythm
reminiscent of a chant, the words
spiral through your mind, leaving
behind a tumult of vibrant images.

control freak by calibius

Control is a hard thing for us to give
up; this piece, by calibius, reminds
us all that sometimes, the things
that are out of our control are the
things we struggle with most.

you're lucky if they kill youshe screams
deafening conversations of millions
footsteps and wine glasses of the smart and the dull,
clinking. clinking. laughter.
she screams
blankets pulled up to comforting warmth
smiles and dreams of the abandoned and the blessed,
whisper. whisper. peace.
she screams
a hand covers the delicate slopes of her lips
cries and pleasure of the chosen and the thief,
echoes. echoes. silence.

you're lucky if they kill you by izha

From the suggester: I think this
should be featured because it's both
powerful and haunting, and deserves
to be seen by many more people.

Six Words: Alarm by MotleyDreams

Adorable and accurate, as
any cat lover well knows.

The titan arose. It shook off an era's worth of sand and stone and rock and various umbrage, heedless of the mountains crumbling around it, and stood. The sun beat down upon its chrome hull, but the tarnished metal had endured things far worse than insignificant heat. The titan arose, and remained still, as sensors began to process information at a terrifying speed. One blue, glowing eye looked out on the dusty horizon, and at the same time, the titan's scanners pinged back their results. Nothing was alive in the great red wasteland that surrounded it.
A deep, grinding sound rolled out from deep inside the titan's chest, a sonorous echo of sadness an eon old. The titan had seen oceans fade away into nothing, had seen the core of a world wither away and die. It had watched civilizations drag themselves out of the primordial mud and build for themselves shining cities and achieve great things, and it had watched those same civilizations collapse and disappear

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.
