Prose

Stay Dreamingyou are pale in the half-light;
all the fire you carry with you in the waking world is doused in the sweetness of your hair across the pillow & your frame insinuating itself in the sheets, in pockets of weight & pools of shadow that say "i am a body", "i am a girl"

Summer Job   It was a cool summer afternoon and the street was bustling with activity. April loved this time of the year, with warm weather and lots of things to do. She had chosen a floral dress with pink and yellow flowers which went well with her light brown hair. What she really wanted to do was take the number seven bus down to the beach and walk barefoot in the sand. Unfortunately, that wasn't an option.
   Glancing in the window of the next shop, she noticed a "Help Wanted" sign. Since she had gotten out of school, her family was insistent she find a job. April didn't mind working, but she wanted one last summer to herself. She wanted to enjoy the weather and be with her friends; she didn't want to worry about getting up early and rushing off to work. However, her mother was adamant and April found herself with no choice but to try to find a position that wasn't too far from home. Gale City was big, so there wasn't a lack of places to work, but she didn't wan

A compelling superhero story that really manages

to pull the reader in for a satisfying read.

Prepared by: SilverInkblot

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.
