Welcome! READ FIRST




:star: TAKE NOTE ALL MEMBERS: WE ARE NOT A SUBMISSION DUMPING GROUND. IF YOU SUBMIT TO OVER 40-100+ GROUPS, YOUR DEVIATION WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. :star:

:star: BE PATIENT AS WE VOTE ON ALL OF YOUR DEVIATIONS. THERE ARE ONLY TWO ACTIVE DEVIANTS CURRENTLY ADMINISTRATING THIS GROUP. THANK YOU! :star:

We encourage deviants to select only their best pieces of literature for submission. We look for pieces that simultaneously move us, challenge us, and inspire us as readers; pieces that stimulate us emotionally and intellectually; and the pieces that display true technical skill. To ensure this level of quality, we have judges who consider all these things, and let only the pieces they deem up to snuff through to the gallery. The purpose of this is to push our submitters to excel, challenge themselves, and improve their craft, and to provide our readers with high quality literature to read.

Group Info

We are a selective literature group; not all submissions make it through, and we ask you to be understanding of this. A declined piece is not a bad piece; it's just not what the judges perceive to be exceptional.

While we welcome open dialogue, harassment or abuse of admins will not be tolerated.

Hey, take me,
Take me, along.
I might lag behind, but I'll be no trouble
If you stride on, I'll run.
I will follow you to your destination
No averted gazes, no hesitation
Take me to where the past won't haunt me
Let my feet land on solid ground
Allow me to stay, just a few steps behind you
I know you won't wait (but then again, why would you)
Go, onwards, you're the evening star
Meant only to be gazed at from afar.

What Geometry Doesn't Tell You
The circles we measure are inconsequential
Distance between our hearts is the sum of our pain
Boundaries are all that we can keep up now
I want to traverse the space lingering between us
Tedium in these numbers is a distraction
Necessary for survival, far from the peace we seek
I want to transcend this limited logic
I know this is not the zenith of our existence,
But the bane of it

Starfaring
Wander
 
This parting way do I now trod
Crossing over fork to a starry road
Where my companions none may follow
Shall I blaze then a path by the moon
The sun my peer to crest the world
Dawn horizons and chase comets
For aloft is my heart and airy the way
Buoying my feet ever and anon
Farewell I bid now to friends few and fair
Divergent our paths do go unto light and dark
And I will tread the gilded highway
Laden with lamps of stars and stellar dust
I will be then as a constellation in the night
My parting gift to guide those with my light
And make my home beyond the clouds
At endless dark’s edge shall I reside
Shine forth as a beacon into the great abyss
My feet like torches, my head a pyre bright
To this end shall I go, and apart will I bide
Casting down the mantle I have worn
A token to those who clung to me
But then I shall be as star fire
Brilliant and untouchable, for reach will I deny
And sail away in silver flames as a bolt
Until my home most true within do I d

Variety
Affection
Oh, it was all only
some small thing—
a little crack
in the shale heart
into which
the river flowed.  
Connection
Planes lifting, buffeted
in the vast plumes and billows of air
I sometimes think I see
what Van Gogh painted,
that untameable whirl
I stand, stretch—
feel the forest of my body
become trees, each atom
wild and disparate
congregated, earthbound
if only by habit.
Salve
Here, the ounce of quiet
I daily dole out to myself.
In this
I’m a practiced pharmacist,
the most skilled doctor.
A soporific stupor,
the laxness of muscle
and a softening of bone.
Forget a medicine
for melancholy, who needs it?
Ounce after ounce
piling up like soft snow.

Thoughts of a Schizophrenic (Poem)
You don't understand
Why I choose not to see
The unwound future
That I see before me...
You don't understand
Or maybe you just don't care
To hear of my plights
Or even look at me, if you dare
If only you knew
The silence of life
Brought by cacophony and incongruency
And every day's starving strife
For the world was made better
Than for us to understand 
As we foolishly worship
Our man-made Gods and their Commands
It all starts at the nucleus
And the social anxiety
That brings me to this moment
And where is questioned my sobriety
I am but one man
Among a sea of sorrow and dread
With a similarity to everyone
For we will die in days ahead
They have War and Peace
Hunger and Sate
Intelligence and Retardedness
And Asexual and Mate
I look at the world
Through a broken piece of glass
As I hear what sounded maybe
Eternal words that have not passed
Minions of mayhem
Harbingers of Death
You collapse and fall with shame
For you were not worthy of your breath
The combine does twist
As it molds

True Harmony
Allowing them
   to linger
I’ve let the voices
of others tear me down;
   Scarring my mind,
   poisoning my soul,
Until, steadfast, I cried,
   "No more,”
Ghosts of the past,
they can no longer
   harm me
   as I now rejoice in
   true harmony;
From this day on
I will celebrate life
as I walk it completely
       my own.

The New Meaning
The New Meaning
For Puabi
This world had lost so much meaning;
It was so dirty, and in need of deep cleaning.
Those I once knew no longer knew me.
Then I found a book;
I opened it and I took a look.
It taught me more than all seeming.
I found a text that spoke of old times;
And of names I did not know.
I read the passage cautiously;
And, when I was through,
I saw you.
Now, whenever I call your name,
You give my life and my world new meaning.

Literature
Little Iris laughs in the curtains
Little Iris laughs in the curtains of the atmosphere,
springs gymnastically on the foggy car light,
and switches the red pupil of the honk
with the petrichor of the running soles;
Little Iris waves at the polishing coats of the city:
the serious concretes, so gray, so gray yet patient,
and she slides up and down the windows
as they scream at the domestics
to save the ropes of clothing.
So much laughter, as varied as her seven dyes,
collecting the cityprints,
as she gaily thinks
of future ideas
to crayon on the clouds
once she can return to the supersonic sneezes of airlines
as they dust up
the cobwebs of nimbostratus.

I Will Write
I will write until
my pen creates
blisters on my
fingers
I will write until
blood flows
from my fingertips
and I am unable to
stop the flow of
words from my mind
And I will write until
my thoughts run out
and I simply cannot
think any more

Do you read poetry with those eyes?
I would ask you to read this
but I’d hate for your gaze to linger
or for you to reminisce. 
The words I write are not for you
nor was ever my forgiveness; 
unlike devotion, that was for us two,
to which you bore false witness.
I look back at that night with regret now, 
remembering the way your eyes gleamed
when my dignity was forced to sorely bow. 
In that moment I knew it was never a dream.
You have always been incendiary 
and your eyes hold those same properties.

Peaceful Coexistence
We're all capable of peacefully coexistin'
Love my neighbors, love my kin
Love refugees, how're y'all settling in?
Helping my zealots to combat sin
Muslim, Christian, or Jew
Buddhist, Taoist, or Hindu
Zoroastrian, Atheistic, or Asatru
All friends
Negroids, Semites, Aryans, Orientals, and the rest
Swear to every god, we're all truly blessed
Extraterrestrials show up talking smack?
We'll cut those foreigners no slack
All love baby, a fun film, and a snack
Y'all know they'll be coming back

I was wondering if this Group still happened to be active.  If the situation is the same as stated in a response below, I must say it is a shame.  I really liked the principles here.

Anyway, if you still are the only active admin, I do sympathize.  Until recently, I was the only active admin in a writing Group, which has been waning for some time.  My lack of privileges and voting support made it impossible to run things, and I'd feel guilty knowing that all I could do for the members was to reply to their comments.

I do hope things have recovered, though.
