The Journey
The celestial bodies are shining on high O’er the glowing, white moor ‘neath the snow-laden sky. In the midst of the dark by a fiery light A silhouette sits in the cold winter night. That traveler’s journey began in the spring, Like those lively, old forests that suffer and sing. When the blossoms were blooming and life gurgled forth And their limbs had not lived in the cold from the north. In the summer they tumbled through valleys and hills; Through the grasses and mountains with jubilant thrills. For their vigorous eyes were alive in the sun, But the great River Time ceases not in its run. When the leaves started burni

Finding Fate
It was in a distant desert that I first found her. I was far from home attending to business, or perhaps searching for something. Or perhaps someone; I can’t recall, but I feel as though it was notably unimportant. The sun dazzled on the bright colors everyone wore; gleaming threads of blues and reds against the golden sand and darkened skin, billowing in the hot breeze. Vendors lined the street selling anything and everything; foods I hadn’t dreamed of, and trinkets whose purpose I couldn’t fathom. There was a warm, kindly feel to the place that pulled you in and made you welcome. And that’s when I saw it; a flash of

Forests
Of forests fair and green I dream, Turned riant by the sun. The groves where often songbirds sing Where deer need never run. The air is thick and warm with leaf. A zephyr always blows. I find that here I find belief And never need my clothes. In wooded lands I long to live, Yet never will I see. We took what all they had to give And now they cease to be. At night I sleep in dreamless rifts And pray to the unseen That soon the dawn will bring me swift To forests fair and green.

My Greatest Fear My Greatest Dream
Within an empty ocean vast, The lights lay glinting from the past. They seem so slow, but move so fast; Myself I know they will outlast. I see for eons, this is true, Though ne'er again will I see you. I pray to you, don't pray for me; My mind's at peace inside the sea. The years are long, but mark my plea, Togeth'r again I know we'll be. In dark I'm floating, never near, Though hope is gone, I do not fear. I think of you and only cry; Alone and cold, I soon will die. I hear you now, a clever lie. Inside the void, I wonder why. I feel so awf'lly small and frail, Into forever now I sail. My greatest fear, my greatest dream.

on loving a girl who doesn't love herself
You used to tell her that you’d accept the reminders, the dark shades running down and over the hill of her waist, the shadow of her wrist. Far from unlovable, you said. So far. Grudgingly, you realized that you could not fix her. She was not a dismantled puzzle just waiting for you; she was her own brand of porcelain, one you didn’t know how to mold back together. She wasn’t breathing for you. The moments of silence between you led to a longer period, those weeks when you went days without talking – and you didn’t know if you were supposed to be proud of her or cry. Stargazed at each other’s words until

Trimmed a lot of shit from dA, including journals. Half of them were "omg sorry for not updating" and the other half was me in jr high. So.

So if today is supposed to be the end of the world, I wouldn't have cared, because yesterday was freaking amazing. I wake up, and check my FB and dA pages randomly. I see some comments on my piece, "Amara Updated", and am pretty happy about that. See one guy congratulating me on the DD. That kinda sucked, because I thought, "Well, now I get to message them and tell them that what I got was a Daily Lit Deviation. But oh well." Then I decide to check on Amara Updated, and HOLY SHIT A DAILY DEVIATION OMGWTFBBQ. XD  I was so surprised! I had a stupid grin on my face for like, half an hour!!  It was probably one of the best starts to a day I've

My name's =shehrozeameen and I welcome you to #PoetrynProseWatchers.
This group is basically carrying the legacy and ideology of #Poetry-Watchers. And what is that ideology, I hear ya'll ask? :?
Its simple: submit your favourite prose and poetry deviations!
:saddummy: still confused?
As a member, you find yourself with works which are simply awesome... they're too awesome to resist... so you feature them... but not everyone gets exposure.
Thus, this group came into being: So that all of you can be given the privilege of not only my favourite deviations, but also your favourite deviations are shared as well. They'll get features, group exposure, even themed identification of why they're awesome to begin with!
So, how does it work? What's the method:
you submit to the poetry and prose folders only. Features are selected by the contributors, founder and co-founder. Anyone can apply for the contributor position - send me a :note: and I'll send you the inv

Its me, =shehrozeameen, your founder!
And ~Pauper-Circumstance and ~UnThai, your co-founders!
As all of you can see from the above title, today's journal entry is about submissions. Thus, what're we waiting for? Lets get started!
Now, how does it all begin...
the first step is getting to the group. Type (on your address bar) poetrynprosewatchers.deviantart.com
Or alternatively, select it from your groups.
OR click the icon ------------------------------------> :iconpoetrynprosewatchers:
Good, now: step 2.

After selecting gallery, click on the "Submit to this gallery" button. this link will show you where that button is
so far so good...
Alright, step 3.
Clicking the "Submit to this gallery" button will result in a submission screen coming. For those who are running other groups, you have two options: Submit a new deviation and Contribute an existing deviation

Select "Contribute an existing deviation". Y


For more information, send a :note: over to :iconshehrozeameen: or :iconpauper-circumstance: or ~UnThai.
