LossI run before I think,Loss by Fundelstein
down the long corridor.
It goes on, almost forever.
The floor is cold, so cold.
The door at the very end,
it's always at the end.
I want to see you.
But when I reach the door,
it's shut, locked away.
"Where did you go?" I cry.
"Why are you not here!?
I'm alone, do you hear me?
I'm all alone!"
But there's no answer.
My nails scrape against the surface.
All I can do is sink to my knees,
My tears flow against the door.
I'm trapped in the passageway.
Fairy's VillanelleFor the fairy to turn wight into knightFairy's Villanelle by ArtCrusade
A spell must be cast that needs strands of hay;
Lets them dance and dance through joyous nights.
By day she searches with magical flight
And many a strand she finds on her way
That lets the fairy turn wight into knight.
Upright the gnome stands to hear her recite
A spell that teaches this wight dance ballet,
And they dance and they dance all through the night.
But they must part before the sun shines bright.
Anew the wight must bide the sun's last ray
For his fairy to turn him in a knight.
He prays that his fairy will be all right
So that they can spin over earth's parquet,
And dance and dance all through the moonlit night.
The meadows flood with sun's orange light
So the gnome needs to wait another day
For the fairy to turn him in a knight -
Until again they may dance through the night.

April's Artisan Craft Monthly ChallengeApril is upon us.April's Artisan Craft Monthly Challenge by cakecrumbs
It's my favourite month of the year. I am biased, because my birthday falls in it. But there is so much to love! The excuse to eat loads of chocolate because Easter. The whole my-country-not-being-as-much-on-fire-any-more thing. Also did I mention chocolate?
This month's theme isn't chocolate. This month we're crafting Dreams. But maybe if I dream of chocolate I can make chocolate things and eat it all in the name of being in the spirit of the contest. Right? Right?
The theme for April is "Dreams".

Positive ThinkingBecause I'm a big fan of Morecambe and Wise Classical comedy FTW!Positive Thinking by Malco735
Just a quick update! My boring life continues, trying not to stress out about the approaching deadlines. I literally have less than two weeks to sort out my dissertation but thankfully, it's mostly done and dusted. Still, I'm getting slightly edgy about the impending doom!
Daily Lit Recognition
Recently there was a lot of talk and anger about Daily Lit Deviations. I won't go into details here because a) it's all in the past now b) it's pretty much been sorted out by the admins and c) I don't want to rake up old ashes and coals and bring all the emotions back to myself and others.
I can say, however, that's there's a new group now called Daily Lit Recognitions which can be found here http://dailylitdeviations.deviantart.com/. It's still finding its feet and there's a lot of work to be done, but I'm super excited for the future. It is sad about DLD, but as someone in the chatroom said 'somethin

Tears in the MoonTears,
In my eyes,
gently moisten my cheeks -
In dark night -
Glittering silverbeam in sky -
Mutual UnderstandingAccept also those who do not suit you.
Be there for each other.
Trust in that everything will go well.
Discover what is important and let off the unimportant.
Begin new, even if you failed yesterday.
Offer help for carrying to those who need your help.
Weeping WillowI feel the warmth of a summer day –
The sky so wonderful in blue,
The grass in saturated green.
Step by step
I come to meet you.
Along the way
So many thoughts,
So many words in my head.
The stony way becomes shorter
And I see you approaching.
To my left
The blue lake in which you are reflected.
I touch your leaves.
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow ... do you feel me?
Do you feel the scars burning me?
Please remove it!
I thank you!
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow... do you see me?
Do you see my silent tears?
Please take them away!
I thank you!
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow... do you understand me?
Do you recognize my courage?
Please support me!
I thank you!
You stand at the lake,
So quiet and calm –
For me it is a place so peaceful and wise.
You seem to be full of sorrow,
But this picture is an illusion.
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow...
You are my hold.
With you it never gets cold
In this world.
Your foliage hangs down sadly,
But it serves a
The BardOnly the luck of the bard was it
To reach the heart of a beauty with his lute.
In the castle court –
There where knights broke their lances
And where streams of red blood
Drenched the white sand.
Where swords clashed
He let swing the strings of his lute
Far above all ranks –
Yawning and exalted –
Stopped feasting her eyes not on
The fighting turmoil.
“Fetch him, that young bard!”,
Came from her lips.
The herald hastened and within a moment
This news reached the bard.
The bard was no rude smith.
He sang a love song to the woman …
"My dearest guest! Secret friend!
Reveal us the high art …
The harmony of your songs
In my favour!
How had your mouth shaped the words?
Why does the sound of your lute equal
The feast of harmony?"
The bard broke his silence soon …
And called it “SPRING MELODY!”
Already long time ago
The love song of the bard died away.
Then I heard in spring
How the young girls sa
Such a Love exists only onceSuch a love exists only once,
That dizzily intoxicates me and makes me happy,
That narcotizes me like a drug,
Which moves me to far realms.
My darling, in your heart dwells the sun,
Lets everything rise lovingly.
Kindness shines in your eyes
Like stars that will never sink.
Such a love exists only once,
So impetuous and enormously ardent.
It makes trembling my heart
And will never let me go again.
My sun, never leave me, please.
I cannot be without you
And I wither like the flowers’ splendor
When your light will not surround me.
Such a love exists only once,
And even if time passes quickly,
I will dream of it all my life,
Like one summer long of May.
Little stars, please show me the way,
Lead me carefully on my path,
So that I even find the way at night,
When once I will get lost.
Such a love exists only once,
Still fulfills me in my death.
In front of me I still see always the sun
When I behold the far sunset glow.
FriendshipFriendship means to give,
But also to take -
Solidarity in joy and sorrow.
Friendship gives hope
And grants happiness as well -
It is assistance in times of loneliness.
Friendship must grow,
You have to cultivate it -
By frankness and honesty.
Friendship means to love
And to be loved -
It depends on mutuality.
Understanding for the other -
Despite his weak points and fallability.
Friendship does not live on advantage
But on feelings -
On the same thoughts at the same time.
Friendship must hear,
Friendship must see -
The other's happiness, expectation and grief.
To open yourself for the other, to talk to him,
To be ready to simply listen to him.
To hope for the other, to live with him.
To swear him eternal loyalty,
Not to grudge the other something,
Even if you are losing it for yourself.
To love him as he is,
Just because he moves your heart.
Friendship develops in times of gladness,
It stands the test in times of solitude.
And if it is a true and deep friendship,
Elven HopeI have a dream
Of another world
Where no-one resembles the other.
But where all are one
In a world of diversity
That plants every flower at the right spot.
I dream of a world
Where hate is unknown
Either among individuals or the great nations.
There is only the appreciation of the others' life
At all their places.
I dream of a great sign
That will re-unite in joy
All once scattered.
Brother will not be angry with brother anymore
And everybody understands
That living is now the new dimension.
I see a new world
Where shining light nets
Spread like a shield across the Earth
From east to west and from south to north.
I dream of a world
That has forgotten the old one
With all the insanity and fury -
In which all humans have been purified.
And chastened in real humility
They stand up and move forward.
In this world
True love will
Seize again the hearts of humanity.
Men and elves -
Together we will cure every wound
That we once stroke ourselves
and our world in limitless rage.
Long poems mean more than 3 stanzas - based on topic of your choice, only free verse format.
If you have always wanted to know what your dream might have as meaning, I will tell you. Tell me your dream and I will tell who you are and how you are. Every dream has a significant message and should not be ignored.
Of course, I am obliged to silence. I have worked for some time as online interpreter but requests were growing over my head
I will start another trial. You cannot imagine how many people can be helped just by telling them what is bothering them and how to confront these problems.
Please sent me your dreams per note/message. You will get the answer per note/message too. I am always ready to answer question if there will be any.
FearThere is this feeling I cannot shake
Something follows me slithering like a snake
I fear there is something that is creepy
Hiding under my bed when I feel sleepy
I hear the howling of vicious hounds
The beasts malicious and escaping from pounds
I hear maniacal laugh of a clown
I see the undead crawl and frown
There are things stalking me in the dark
Children have been abducted by creatures hiding in the park
There are things unknown hiding just out of sight
These are the thoughts that fill me with fright
