Literature
Rainbow Dust
Stars made of nightmares and skies made of fears
Hearts made of glass and a home built of tears
Cries made of silence and words made of knives
Dreams of the struggle to simply survive
Souls made of paper and minds made of flames
She is a piece of their loveliest game
No longer can she feel more than disgust
Even a rainbow does turn into dust…

Literature
Teenage Girl
I sold my soul, but not to the Devil
I sold my soul to a teenage girl
and all that she asked in return for my spirit
Was that I fall in love with her

I told her that without my spirit
I did not think I would be capable of love
She cut my name in to her arm
I think that she has suffered enough
I held her closely in my arms
Until our hearts did beat as one
She fell asleep unaware
That the next morning I would be gone
From a girl to a woman to an angel
She shall live, she shall love, she shall grow
Fate suggested I leave her
To eternally mingle our souls
But there will be no trace of my existence
I simply will have never been
Though as my soul now lays beside her bones
She will know she was loved by me
I sold my soul, but not to the Devil
I sold my soul to a teenage girl
and all that she asked in return for my spirit
Was that I fall in love with her

For Sarah, Forever Ago
I worked the midnight shift last night. It was the sort of night where you body feels so heavy that your mind just starts floating away.  I was exhausted, worn. Sleep reached for my heart like a vigilante reaching for a gun, and I couldn't stop thinking of you.
You filled my head with poetry.
I could write something beautiful, that it was a clear night and the stars were out, that the moon shone above me like a love song in the sky. But it wasn't. The clouds were low and heavy and the streetlights painted the sky orange.
It was the kind of night that makes you feel trapped. The kind when there's no one alive but you, no sound but your heartbeat, a wolf howling and a siren in the distance. The kind when I decided that the world isn't big enough for us. The nights that turn into sunrises – the sunrises that break apart the horizon and pull the breath from your lungs.
You know the nights I'm talking about.
The nights when the wind lashed our lips like we were sky-sailing to

Poetry, Prose: Who Knows?
Welcome to the first edition of this week's Project: Educate series dedicated to getting facts out there about the Literature gallery and community.  As education is only effective if you start with the basics, we figured a brief review of which art forms the Literature gallery covers might be in order.  First and foremost:
What is Literature?
Well, one can answer that question in any number of ways stemming from the very academic to the very pejorative, but I like to settle on something simplistic.  Literature is art in the form of written expression.  It usually (but not always) deals with a particular subject and often strives for an audience of interested and like-minded folk.  So if you are using words as your artistic tools, then the Literature gallery is the gallery for you!
Are there different types of Literature?
Again, this question can become needlessly and quickly complicated.  To avoid

Literature
Poetry Is
Poetry is the work of a poet; he is a craftsman like any other. The notion that anybody can be a poet is ridiculous. It's the same as saying anybody can be a mason: it takes rigorous devotion and effort. Anybody can be inspired, but not anybody can write a functioning poem-- that is a, a work of rhythmic literature that uses figurative language to convey something. That "something" is what makes poetry so difficult. A poem taps into some aspect of the plethora of human emotion, making poetry universal regardless of time or place; that is, even if a reader can't identify with the situation or time period of the poet, the underlying sentiment will tap into something already within the reader. Poetry is that machine which artfully created to make the reader confront that which always existed.

There is a smell like rosemary and tobacco at night so I write. Ink? I prefer the eye straining array of electroluminescence. Letters sparking into stale black and forming complex thought

I am the girl who drinks the strongest coffee possible over and over just so she can talk to you all night.
I am the girl who wants to buy a Chinese lantern and set it off in your direction, just to see if you'll see it too.
I am the girl who enjoys sleep deprivation, because while she's not sleeping, she's with you.
I am the girl who breaks this into tiny pieces so she can read all your words again and again.
I am the girl who cries when she sleeps, because you're not in place of her squishy pillow that isn't warm enough to be you.
I am the girl who thinks you're perfect, despite your flaws that don't really exist to her.
I am the girl who started your Birthday present two months before your actual Birthday.
I am the girl who's splitting her fingers open with guitar strings trying to write a song for you.
I am the girl who's promised to make a hundred paper stars so that she can use her wish to wish for you.
I am the girl who's already saving up for our VW camper van.

Writers, the Future is Here!
The New Direction for Literature!
The volunteer literature gallery moderators have been sitting on this announcement for several months, and we finally have the green light from the dA administration to shine the spotlight on the future direction of the Literature Gallery!
May I present dAlta, "deviant Alternate literature & text arena", which will be an external site created solely for text-based deviations. No longer will our writers submit their poetry and prose to deviantART.com. Instead, everything will be posted to an external, affiliated sister-site called dAlta.
(Of course, we're hoping to shorten the acronym before the final launch that will appear with dA version 8. All suggestions are welcome in comments below.)
What is dAlta?
This new site will contain much-longed-for literature elements such as gallery-like pages called "portfolios" for sharing writing with parents and friends, an integrated text processor instead of muro, and blocked emot

Literature
Crystal Lucidity
She held the gemstone heart up to her bedside lamp and crinkled her nose. For twenty dollars, the thing really was ugly. Its color was that of vomit. Vomit if it were ignored and allowed to cement, dooming its hapless recipient without hope of ever being removed. A stain deeper than any amount cleansing could ever heal.
A disgusting comparison, but she'd stopped seeing the beauty in things long ago.
Help me...
She turned the heart in her fingers. Yellow tungsten light swept over the stone's only saving grace--flashes of iridescent aquamarine, winking back from within a sea of grayish green. The only reason the crystal wasn't still sitting under the glass case at that New Age bookstore.
"It's call labradorescence... a flash of light in the darkness," the saleslady had said as she plucked vomit-heart from her case. "Wear this crystal on your person and it will reveal that which is ever-present but cannot be seen. Or you can put it under your pillow, for it works best at night. You

poem-fallen stone
i try and try
but i never get far
for i try to be happy
for only little care
and others wanting me
to give and give
but i never get in return
i try and try
but i just cant
cant be who she wants me to
i am who i am
she cant see that
no respect to me
than no respect for her
you dont get
when you dont give
for she brings me down
as a fallen stone
and more i become broken inside

Literature

Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White…
Oh God,
Who came up with such a simple
Mirror-mirror
World?
They must've lived inside
Their heads, not with their
hands
This is life and it's
Woven by words spoken in corners
Between kisses-
Lying on the ground with our
Hearts in our mouths and our
Eyes in the clouds and our
Bodies resting on each other-
Beating, breathing, humming
It's not woven by fairies
And roses and gingerbread
And stone towers and glass fortresses…
Temptation instinct longing
Are what twist us in a
Certain direction, not a
Code of honor
Because when you start
To pray you can't stop
Crying
There's not quiet haven, no short cut,
No warm place without watchers
This won't be real in a few years,
Brought together by lack of choice and
Twin desires
I'll be thinking
This is a big world
That was a small town

Still…
You make the rest of my life
Go too slow,
Each day used to last
The same amount-
Not anymore, you
Trick and move the hands on the
Clock of
