LitanyLitany
I would like to tattoo
a poem on my skin, or perhaps
only a few choice lines, the important
ones that I'll never forget.
But one line, one poem, would never
suffice; there are so many
more words than that, so many
that have engraved themselves
on my heart.  I would spend every day
scrawling new words, new poems, new
epigrams and witticisms onto my skin, adding
to a history of loves and losses -
a current of words that starts
at my hands and continues up my arms,
coiling lazily around my neck then dropping
to tenderly spiral around my heart.
It would never stop with one.
[and that's the reason
i refuse to let you write your name
on my hand
-
you are already always
with me]

Litany by Tyrison

This piece is about the love of words
and how hard it is to pick just one to choose from
as the 'one' to get tattooed upon their skin;
then it blends into the reason why the writer
allows another to write their name on his arm.

Clock and TimeI hate how the clock ticks,
Leaching away the euphoria I seeded,
And the contradiction of every paradox .
I hate how the clock ticks,
When the wand waltzes in constant cycle,
Every second, every strain; vexes me.
But I love how time passes,
How the clumsy hulk smashes my past,
And how he gifts me bouquet of future times.
I love how time passes,
How I await every comfort after every storm,
And how I never seem to catch its breath on me.
-Clock and Time
(G.L)

Clock and Time by Milk-and-Pie

Milk-and-Pie looks at both the
pluses and minuses of time--and staring
at the clock--in this poem.





Prose

Alphabet SoupLydia was the only child of a dead mother and the third child of an absent father. She lived in a small house on a small, unpaved side road.
Every day, Lydia would wake up with the birds and wish the sun a good morning before sliding her feet into a pair of slippers that had belonged to her grandmother. She would go to the kitchen, kiss her aunt and make her breakfast.
Every morning Lydia would take the blue bowl and heat up one tin of alphabet soup in the microwave. She would use a yellow spoon and eat the alphabet backwards while her aunt read the morning paper and tut-tutted.
On the particular morning that our story is set, Lydia did not find the letter Z in her soup. She ate backward from Y instead, and when she was finished she kissed her aunt goodbye and left for school.
Lydia was used to walking to school alone. In fact, Lydia was the type of girl who did many things alone and as such, she had grown to enjoy doing things that way. On this morning, however, something unexpected h

Alphabet Soup by introverted-ghost

A story that uses its brevity
to really impact the reader, leaving
them with a sharp, dark ending.

For a priceOnce upon time, there was a handsome prince who lived alone in a tower, guarded by three lions – he had grown there since his very tender age, for legend had it that he would grow to rule all kingdoms along with his Queen, if only a brave enough young woman could free him from his prison and claim his hand.
But the young man did not wish to be freed, or to be wed; and so whenever, once every few years, a courageous lady managed to climb up to his tower and momentarily defeat the lions, he challenged her to a swordfight, and killed her if she lost.
For he had everything he needed there in his loneliness and peace; food he could hunt for, and his faithful felines brought back enough game for the four of them. A clear spring trickled down the stones nearby, and in winter there were birds, and stored provisions from the kind months, to survive on.
In clement times he would run and hunt and play with his animals, roam about the mountain and watch the clouds; in winter he would play mu

A fairy tale like story with a twist

PerspektivenKannst Gold durch deine Venen schießen
Oder Blei durch dein Gehirn
Tollkirschenmarmelade auf 'nem Butterbrot genießen
Betrunken vor dem Supermarkt erfrier'n
Vom Kuppeldach des Reichstags springen
Oder vor den ICE
Tanzen mit den Lieblingsklingen
Im heißen Bad, das tut nicht weh
Du kannst zu Zyankali greifen
Zum Strick, der Wirbelsäulen knackt
Zu anrollenden Autoreifen
Oder Fingerhutextrakt
Großmutters Zauberschränkchen plündern
Die Apotheke überfall'n
Deine Zukunft weitsichtig mit AIDS verhindern
Oder dir spontan den Kopf vom Rumpfe knall'n
All diese Chancen steh'n dir offen -
Sie werden dir auf Silbertellern präsentiert.
Doch du? Bleibst stur. Egobesoffen
Verkündest du, dass keine Freiheit existiert...
Das Ghul, 19.1.2009

Perspektiven by DasGhul
A fantastic piece of free verse dealing
with the freedom of will, depicting it with
a dark sense of humour that I personally adore.

Skin by SimplySilent
Daily Literature Recognition 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.
