"Starving Exile" by Caitlan78

Why do we seek our own demise in a world that 

tempts us with the elusive promise of grace? 

The poet makes incisive inquiries into the matter.

Rapunzel: A RecountingAsk nothing from the azure sky, and the
blinding sun that burn bronze locks to gold, and
corrupted me with candlestick and sunlight.
Do you recall the child you delivered and deserted?
Exile, I entered, and you left me to my evermore.
Father, did you falter, when you followed her - my
good mother, the witch? (Gather ye rapunzels and go.)
Halt there, hurrying prince,
in my ignorance, you steal my bliss.
Joker, surely you jest?
Kings and kin - kill me now if I am ever
late - late! in love, in lie, and in line!
Men are mountains: mote to crumble away.
Never will the tales near normalcy:
Omniscient is the overlord, and the
princes tried patience and pleasure; never
quiet in quests. Quoth the Queens, the ladies,
Return Rapunzel: relieved of her religion.
So sever'd the Soul from its seams and
turned the tide towards the tower,
understanding the
vanity of

"Rapunzel: A Recounting" by Vigilo

It takes skill to make alliteration look good, but 

Vigilo does so much more than that. 

She has made it an art form itself.

All That Passed Between ThemShe came there each day, waiting. She would sit there in that spot on the bench for some time before getting on the train - the right train. The train that he was on. She had noticed him one day, on her way to a certain somewhere, as usual, and as a people watcher, she took note of the time and proceeded to try and catch the same train each day. She was a stubborn girl, curious too. Her nosiness often got her into trouble, but no matter - she always bounced out of scrapes. And when she was determined, red flags that could possibly have warned her were only burned and tossed into the trash.
He was a nice looking fellow. He had smiling eyes and the gaze of an observer. She guessed that he had observed her, too, but she didn't mind. Each day she would get on the same train and sit faithfully in the aisle across from him. She tried her best not to catch his gaze. Instead she would only study him as he glanced out the window or turned to his book, and look away at the first instant she thou

"All That Passed Between Them" by wordofthewillow

A sweet, slice-of-life love story that reads like a 

contemporary fairy tale.

"a bed shaped universe" by BlueMeadow193

This prosetry piece describes a rather cliche subject so 

abstractly that I didn't even remember it was cliche until 

I finished it. It reminded me of what we always forget to 

mention in literature about sex- everything that's not the sex.

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.

I have a weakness for prose-y slice-of-life romance :D

Man, what a great piece you wrote there - i'm still surprised i missed it though work has left me quite unaware of some of the more enjoyable nuances of dA these days. Really loved it though good miss and can't wait to revisit it a couple more times later in the week when time presents itself.

I'm flattered and bewildered, and as always, pleased that you enjoyed the poem. It's the same with me and your poems, every time you update one I haven't commented upon, I'm exactly the same way. :giggle: Thank-you so very much. I do hope you find time enough (for both the poem and yourself) soon! :heart:
