Daily Lit Recognition for November 30th, 2015
What to Do
To submit a piece for consideration, please choose an Admin from the appropriate category--Poetry, Prose, or Foreign Language--and note them with your suggestion. Easy as that!
Please submit your suggestion to only one category admin at a time to help us avoid confusion.
A deviant may only be featured once every 30 days. A deviation may only be featured once, ever. Do not suggest pieces that are already recipients of a DLR, DD, or DLD please.
The current submission format guidelines are:
"title" by AccountName
And an optional, brief description of why the piece should be featured could be included here.
We would appreciate it very much if this format was followed, especially the descriptor – if you can convince us of the piece in a few, short lines, we’re much more likely to give it the consideration it deserves! To see if a deviant has been featured recently, check the two monthly pages linked:

Daily Literature Recognition is here to recognize the literary community here on deviantART. We yearn for good literature and we thrive on your words.
By showcasing one featured Daily Deviation per day the Literature Community Volunteers provide the community with a showcase of excellence in Literature. In contrast, we will be showcasing excellence with a series of literature pieces each day here to serve the community. We are a diverse group featuring several pieces of quality literature every day.
In such a large community many artists feel that their work goes unnoticed. We are here to help change that!

Iambic TetrameterThe nightmares tear asunder hope
And shadows black with fervor grope
Within my heart so dark and cold
Within my spirit grown so old
Can I still witness light as it-
As well with with fervor strives to keep
My tried and tested faith from sleep
And give my weakened spirit grit?
Lunar EclipseObserve the birds that soar so high
Their wings that stir in endless flight
Like vibrant sails become aflame
And lit below by beacons bright
The moon rusts red in darkened skies
Absorbs the glow of midnight light
A blood moon is too cruel a name
Let rest the stars and sleep tonight
Oh love, stay here and rest with me
Oh love, sleep calm and rest tonight
Your Heart vs. The WorldThe stars are dreams caught in mid-flight.
Your heart is black and blue tonight.
The beat it bangs is secret song.
The moon it feels the meaning strong
Though wind won't let the wonder stay
So eyes look toward the morning grey.
The heat they hope to find was spent
Against a heart for another bent.
Lay your body in warmth of rhyme.
Heal as this is just the first time.
The Tell Tale HeartI feel the rhythm of his heart,
beneath the boards the beating starts;
as reason from my mind departs,
I fall apart, I fall apart.
The men who knocked upon my door,
not knowing what's beneath my floor
will want to settle up the score -
I do implore, I do implore
This guilt breaks conscience with my lie -
my wracking sobs and wretched sighs.
I never meant for him to die.
It was his eye, it was his eye!
