i told you that night i would forget, but you
were too busy thinking
of when to see me
overdosing on bedsheets and sunshine we were salty and guttural tides -
i had all but forgotten the smell behind your ear, the softness
of your throat when it growls in hunger
the comforting shape of your head under my clumsy hands, that
familiar taste on the tip of you, pulling us
apart and together again
but we overlooked the bitterness
of candy-coated chimeras
the call of their acidic tongues)
next year’s crop should be better, the almanac said;
we chose to believe it
go east; the trees whispered
the snow took away their breath leaving me here
with onions to peel and tears to wipe
noticing them you mentioned winter
would last longer

|I am a Foreign Language Admin at DailyLitRecognition ! That means I keep an eye out for the best FRENCH literature on dA (specifically poetry). If you think you have a suggestion for me, read on!|
What is DailyLitRecognition / LitRecognition?
DLR is a group dedicated to promoting the work of Literature artists on deviantArt.
By showcasing one featured DD per day, the Literature Gallery Moderators provide the community with a showcase of excellence in Literature. In contrast, we will be showcasing excellence with a series of literature pieces each day in a News Article to serve the community. We are a diverse group featuring 5 pieces of quality literature every day.
In such a large community many writers feel that their work goes unnoticed. DLR is here to help change that!
How do I suggest a DLR?
Please see the profile page for the general guidelines and a list of the other Admins you can suggest to. Please only suggest a piece to one Admin at a time to avoid any confusion.
Okay, but what if I have a suggestion for YOU, Wordeea?
Top right corner - send me a note! Here's the rundown:
Please send no more than two suggestions at a time. This makes it easier for me to keep up.
I can feature FRENCH Prose or Poetry, though I try to focus more on Poetry.
Please include a thumb and a description of why you think this piece deserves to be featured. It doesn't have to be a full critique - a few sentences will do nicely!
Yes, you can suggest yourself! If you deserve it, you deserve it! But please don't send me your entire gallery - remember I have to actually READ everything sent to me.
All the Admins have a certain style they enjoy. I myself like reading FRENCH Poetry that is rich and vivid, tells a story and with a great last stanza/verse. I like it when it punches me in the gut. I like off the cuff stuff, unconventional stuff, i do enjoy classical, but i tend to go towards rough around the edges work
