Happy Fall, poets! We have some news regarding the featured deviant, voting, and admin support.

This month's October feature goes to peaseblossoms.

Her work is intriguing, direct, and full to bursting with lovely imagery and clever metaphors stiched throughout. Please take a look at her gallery.

dear starboy,i.
there is a sort of radiance taking over the blood
beneath your veins - a spontaneity, a curiosity -
and the moon reserves some of her precious
light for you because you are miraculously
unafraid of begging for more.
(you're a modern day oliver if i ever saw one.)
ii.
there are days when i wish with every piece of myself that
i could close my eyes and my trembling
heart would morph itself into yours, free of flaws,
and your same contagious charisma
would set my soul on fire and finally
burn my cowardice to ashes,
and it would become a pure instinct to
hunt down fleeting moments before they can disappear,
and, with a toss of the mane,
claw them down and savor every
last precious piece.
iii.
i am an unwritten page,
a girl who chokes upon
her own rare valiance
before she can shakily
expel it. i am a rabbit,
a dull and flickering star
whose velleity it is to let these
poems tumble freely from
my lips, and there you are,
living an unfathomable dream of mine,
and your bravery makes me crum
we can't stop treading water, can we?i.
he's the hitch in her breaths and
the tremble in her frozen hands. she
sees the green in his eyes and closes
her own to let the viridity of his gaze
trickle into her irises. as soon as he
swishes past her she loops the heart
around her neck over her finger - it
nuzzles her collarbone as she whispers,
"damn that boy..."
ii.
"you and i" feels right on my tongue, and
it only feels righter when we're side by side.
we pound the keys and navigate our way
through more and even more. "save me,
save me", you say, but do you ever wonder
who really needs the saving?
(i blossom in your light, but i've never
wondered if you could bloom in mine...
together we could be a beautiful mess.)
iii.
[you're right. she'll never be anything
more than craters and pretty words and
wide eyes that never cease to gouge
out valleys in my breaths. she can't
hang in the sky over me anymore. and if
i ever want my lungs to work again, i have
to, have to, have to let go.]
iv.
it only gets
tomorrow, time will eat our constellationsi.
this goes out to the boy who
insists on solving me, who insists on shuffling through
every file in the folders of my mind to figure out just exactly
who it is that makes me grin so widely. (it's you, oh bother! it's you!)
today you finished picking up the minutia of mine that fell apart
and putting them back in their places, and then you
succeeded in picking me up myself because
you knew with all of my emotions i was
bound to be slipping towards the ground.
tomorrow, you will be gone. tomorrow, you will be
so close and yet so far away. tomorrow, will you wait for me?
ii.
this one's for you. you know who you are,
with the two lizards on your shirt and the
twinkle in your eye. you spent your whole life
admiring feathers on wings, and it hurts to see you
spread your own as your thrush talons push off
from the golden ground. today your voice wreathed through
my head and i raised my eyes up to search for you. tomorrow
we'll be too close for comfort, and i'll be too red to read

One last thing: We are looking for some more admin support to help with submissions, occasionally writing journals, and scoping out new deviants to feature in the coming months. If this sounds like something that would interest you, please let us know.

Thank you to sweeneykitkat for taking the time to help us out when she could. :)

That's all for now, don't forget to vote!
