ChromesthesiaI
I've for long known that beauty is not a sum, where units of measurements could consist of physical attributes, or of anything that could be perceived by bodily senses. The vivid, lush green of a finally quenched apprehension is just as graceful and lovely as the wrinkled and sunburnt blues of a distant memory's wall flowers. Beauty is a spectrum of vigour, the fluctuations of ideas, concepts, actions and thoughts, which become their own purposeless musical colours and flavours. No consensus creates allure, only a great, breathless leap into the disarray of affective venture may lead the consecrated energy to emerge.
II
I have seen the light about you, silken sheets on your glowing skin, glistering pools of gold in your eyes, and beams of radiant bliss, flowing ethereal from your core. No particular shade of mind made you unpleasant in my eye;  I am so accustomed to your fašade, I tend to let the trivial slip. I waited long nights in blindness, clouds of desire still dorman

"Chromesthesia" by kamalaksh

Suggester says: "Chromesthesia is a
type of synesthesia, one that is written
about very well in this instance."

Native ArtsThe artists' study has old dust layering the floor
like shards of glass
Broken bottles tossed by ocean
scattered by wind
There are empty squares on the walls where pictures died
Small houses boarded up with stone
to keep old residents from coming back
or worse, strangers
Whiteboard is imprinted with fragments of color
Parts of a sun
that have just begun
to reappear from behind a halfmoon
Ancient artists trapped in empty lightbulbs sing
of passed days, mingling
what it was to be young
with pictures that weren't all black and white
The window blinds are kept open,
mourning light streaming in
like ghosts trying to touch everything they can
before they disappear

Native Arts by Lazuleaf

Every building has a story, a past life
with tenants grown and gone.  Often, these
stories are subtle...but according to Lazuleaf,
it's the subtle stories that are most intriguing.

always half-finishedi can tell you how much i loathe anyone or anything that lingers, even when they're beautiful. my anxiety disorder can't handle any of that. yet it's been one year and one month and i'm still stuck in reverse.
nauseated is the prettiest emotion i've felt so far because for once, i can see an actual physical rejection, rather than these invisible strings snapping on the inside, but never showing even a blemish on the outside.
my screams have begun to ferment as they remain bottled up in what i imagine to be gruesome-colored vials within the shelves of my intestines. each vial must be carrying individual, heart-straining yelps, yelling and sobs from different moments in time yet all having been filled from one source (you).
i have paint swatches stuck in my journals that i try and match with each of the aches that i can feel from these vials. this blue, is your eyes and this off green is the way they made me feel. color coded aches.
maybe then you would have seen this coming.

UntitledJe suis l'enceinte
Le château, fort de l'enfant roi
Le rempart de ses jours à venir
Demain, sur mon ventre mon amour
Tu l'entends bouger mon amour ?
Je suis l'enceinte, l'alcôve, la forteresse
La louve bienveillante que la portée espère
Je suis le ventre rond, son monde éphémère.

Untitled by drolebouillon

A short prose with a rare way with words.
drolebouillon talk us about the emotional
thoughts of a pregnant woman, with a constant
play concerning the sense "enceinte" (to be pregnant)
and "une enceinte" (the high walls of a castle.)

Prepared by: thetaoofchaos
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.
