Sepsismy love for youhas escaped my heart;it has spread through themaze of capillaries and veins,into the arteries.my adoration has flooded my brain;it has inhibited allrationality, and foggedall memories.it has taken unwelcomerefuge in my lungs;burning in my breath,devouring the oxygensucked past dry lips.my love for you has gone septic.(the doctors say they cannotclean my polluted blood,because the infection festersin my heart.)
Fiat luxAll the rivers run into the Sea; Our cast reconvenes 'neath the ol' Bodhi tree: Fisher King from the Sea-Otter's demesne; The forgotten soldier who lives to have seen Faust's night on the ridge and Walpurgis night's dream; And fore-thinking bones from the dead fire-bringer. Three dreamers watching, with the lighting's singer.Yet, the Sea is not full;
angelShe is a musician.Pale grey eyes that are half closed and blood shot most of the time.Crimson colored hair, the kind you can only get out of a box, sways down to her frail hips,But the incognito blonde peeks out at the roots.She leans her skinny body against the cold brick wall like it's Home Base in a game of tag.A cigarette hangs from her lips, a violin from her fingers.They're melancholy tunes that she pulls from those strings,But they harmonize with the clatter of coins being tossed in a jar.They watch her like she's an angel.They hear her like she's a prayer.She sings about money, and love, and other seemingly empty t
Shadow and RadianceOn the west side of EdenThere is nothing but seven graves;And in the dust, I hear voices chantingBut no bells ring.Say it:O for the radiance of a thousand sunsO I am become death, destroyer of worldsO O O OUntil the rotting teethFall from Golgotha's empty mouthAnd tree's grow in the sockets,Where pleading eyes Used to be;No one will know peace.I used to bask in The misty sunset's glow.But now, even Valhalla's feasts Seem quiet and empty.I wonder if I'll ever Get them right.No wonder.No wonder. No wonder.Those are pearls that were his eyes.
52 Week Six Word Story Challenge! - Week 11#SixWordStories has teamed up with #theWrittenRevolution to present to the literature community a project that will question what it really means to be a writer. Although all of these challenges are in the six word story form, there is nothing to say that you can't apply them to different kinds of literature too! We encourage everyone to take part! Even if you are not a writer, that is totally fine! If you can string six words together into a story and follow some rules, then you are very welcome to join us and you don't even have to participate every week either!Each week, a challenge is set with the results of the previous week featured in a news article. This is what the community has come up with for last week's six word story challenge: Write a six word story in dedication to a female to celebrate International Women's Day that fell on March 8th this year.~ Suggested by ~Bakape :thumb2

Stonehenge - The Mystery and Legacy Domain of the Dead, Historical Mystery...Stonehenge It's referred to as probably the most important prehistoric monument in Britain and is viewed by thousands and thousands of people every day, week, month and year.To many people it may look just like a pile of rocks, especially in some of the images you may stumble across. But Stonehenge is so much more than that. It's history right before our eyes, mystery, wonderment and it's the fundamental basis for a very strong religion.I go to Stonehenge regularly not for spiritual or earthy reasons but purely because I find it overwhelming and hugely baffling that such an immense construction can have no true historical origin. There are still so many questions about how it got there that I find the idea of an unknown History quite refreshing.Set in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside the presence of the rocks is something that can awa
Project Educate: Lit Groups Under the RadarAs a part of #projecteducate, the literature gallery moderators will be posting news articles regarding the literature community and gallery here on deviantART as well as literature in general, covering various topics that we feel deserve to be covered. So let's get started, shall we?Did you know there are currently over 600 groups devoted to literature here on dA? Navigating your way through said groups can be a difficult task, especially if you are looking for a special genre or literary niche.This article is to help promote some of the lesser known but very active groups that fly below the radar. Many of the descriptions are taken directly from the group's "About Us" section, so you know precisely what each group strives to do.Maybe somewhere in this list you'll find your perfect fit!Poetry:iconthe-rhyming-rhythm: #The-Rhyming-Rhythm is a place for that notoriously-difficult form of poetry: rhyming.:iconpoetry-jam: #poetry-jam is an improv
