Chemical ImbalanceI'm not sure I know what to say,More Like This
And I can't find the words to take it away.
I'm lost within my every thought,
Impulses, and chemicals, all shot.
Trying to find a remedy: a cure,
To return to a mindset that once was pure.
I'm lost within the misery,
Bereft of pleasant memory,
Enslaved to my own anxiety,
All that's left: insanity.
EllipticalHe talks to CometsMore Like This
tells them Secrets and Tales
they listen with rapt attention
sometimes crashing and burning
sometimes passing innocuously
through the Universe
Sometimes, the Comets tell their own tales
streaking tails of tales across the night sky
passing sleeping cities, flying over pastures
we watch with rapt attention
sometimes crashing, sometimes burning
but never innocuously
We wish, we hope, we dream
of catching Comets in a jar,
keeping them like wildflower jam
and spreading them on brainy toast
and savoring every Cosmic bite
But, He talks to Comets
tells them they belong among the stars
to sail away and find a new lover
Far away and return when they feel free
The Train Now DepartingQuiet and self possessed the black dog lays down to wait outside the supermarket,More Like This
His people are one of the raggle-taggle families from the dilapidated quarter of town.
Immigrants from some foreign place where the sky is always blue but hope has failed.
Here they wander the well-stocked aisles of plenty, drifting apart and coming together,
Searching out the affordable, trailing ragged clouds of chaos.
Notice amongst the children, the little girl,
In the frivolous pink dress decked out with bows and frills
Carrying an unspoken challenge in her dark gypsy eyes
“Use your imagination
Stand in my shoes for a moment and feel them pinch.
How easily our places might have been exchanged,
But for the rolling of the dice,
But for the inscrutable ever-rolling dice.”
In the cities of recurring dreams,
The wise walk amongst the foolish, the uncaring and the faceless.
Put an ear down to the pavement and deeper than the noise of the traffic,
Those who have ears to hear will hear the rumble
There is no Other“All hate is one hate,More Like This
All love is one love.
I swear this truth on any book you care to name.
Behind the illusion of self
We are all limbs of the same creature.
There is no other.
Who would mock his own clouded eye,
Or ridicule his twisted foot?
The clouded eye sees visions in the mist,
The twisted foot might aid our balance
And carry us on a little way yet.
There is no other.”
Having spoken his piece the unreliable witness falls silent,
Fumbles for his or her varifocals,
And limps down from the witness stand.
“Call the next witness.”
31To those in my life I love the most...More Like This
Here upon my birthday, I bid you a toast.
You've enriched my life with humor and wit,
And stood by me even when I was a whiny twit.
You've given me pleasure, and eased my pain,
And keep me level when ought I'd go insane.
You share sage counsel, and make me chortle,
Even if you insist on reminding me I'm only mortal.
A soul must endeavor to hold on to those most dear,
And with all of you around, I might make it another year.

Welcome To The Today Page
Dawn by Smattila
The wonderful thing about the shared global art narrative is that it’s constantly evolving.
A new chapter in the deviantART story has begun, with a new Today Page focused on outreach and engagement, telling our stories and bringing a devious lens to the world around us. We seek to monitor, analyze, report on, and most importantly, be a part of encouraging the bond between art, life and the human spirit using the pulse of the first digitally-oriented art collective and in ways older, established media cannot.

and it is work,
and you will often come second to the job –
it’s best to know which pieces are fictions,
which ones are wishes,
and which parts are for you.

ALL INFO ABOUT THE THEMATIC FOLDER HERE
Hello dear members of TheFavouriteShowcase, friends and deviants,
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in group
