KEIN GEDICHT by Wyzzel, literature
Jedes Buch, das verschlossen bleibt, ist nichts als totes Holz. Jede Geschichte, die nicht erzählt wird, ist wie ein gestorbener Traum. Jede Seite, die leer bleibt, ist wie ein vergessener Wunsch. Jeder Satz, der nicht geschrieben wird, ist wie ein verlorener Gedanke. Jedes Wort, das nicht gelesen wird, ist wie eine vergangene Chance. Jeder Block, der ungenutzt bleibt, ist nichts als verschwendetes Papier. Jedes Bild, des nicht verwirklicht wird, ist wie eine Lüge. Jede Leinwand, die nichts zu sagen hat, ist wie ein Missverständnis. Jeder Strich, der nicht gezogen wird, ist wie ein vorwurfsvoller Blick. Jede Farbe, die nicht gewählt wird, ist wie ein geheucheltes Gefühl. Wähle alle Farben und belebe was tot ist! Nichts wird erschaffen, um vergessen zu werden! Nichts wird vergessen, solange du es lebst! (H.M.W. Oktober 2019)

Celebrating Deviousness - January 2023
In recognition of exemplary membership and an outstanding spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community, January 2023's Deviousness award recipient is: @Queen-Kitty! Browse through @Queen-Kitty’s gallery, and you’ll find photographic evidence that fairytales exist. Soft, ethereal and fantastical, she casts an otherworldly-vintage glow on her subject matter. She demonstrates her care and commitment to the DeviantArt community through curated features, her participation within multiple groups and, of course, as a beloved member of the Community Volunteer team. @Queen-Kitty pours everything into her craft and the community, and it is our honour to award her Deviousness for January 2023. Hello there! My name is Ashley, I’m @Queen-Kitty on DeviantArt, and I live in Florida. I’ve been on DA for 16 years now, after a friend recommended the website to me when I was around 17. I told her I wanted a place to be able to post my art and photography, and she recommended

I Saw My Body Dreaming by MartenHoyle, literature
I Saw My Body Dreaming
“I Saw My Body Dreaming” Gather, enshrouding dark to my supper. This is my body. This is my shame— My body! The last great deception. You see me caged in what I have loved— The final reflection. For so long, it was safe here— But it’s not helping anymore. I wakened in the night, Without disturbing my slumber. I saw my body dreaming— Somehow, I had left it behind, I saw the skin become stone— So much more than I had hoped for… The wars had been laid aside— What cares bedewed the sleeper’s brow Lay buried in the vestiges of blood, For long had the stone been bleeding, To bleed no more its own ruin. A sigh escaped the surrounding night. Stalking from these mortal relics. I placed my hand upon the sleeper, And found only grains of sand, Where once flesh was made stone. And amid the ruins of what had been Man Lay, end-to-end, the bones of his deities, Self-slain in offering to Their own shrines. What words did they speak, Beyond a fading cry of, “Who now shall say 'Amen'?” © 2023
