The Professional ManThe Professional Man by jackgunski
You’ll find the rules have changed.
This is where you become the exception,
and law of man becomes a hindrance,
rather than a necessity.
You will see the line where following the rules
meets the banality of evil.
There is no more comfort.
People don’t want to see comfort.
They want to see how their misery fits on you.
And they will use all their power to do it.
All assets will be liquidated.
Your facial features.
Your inner peace.
All will be placed on a scale
and sold at market value.
Others won’t see it happening.
They will pass it off as a necessity of life.
The only way to stop it
is to shake yourself and others out of their haze.
It is a battle without victory,
and you will surely die on the field,
but it is a battle you lose if you don’t fight it.
You lie in the path of the wind,
destined never to settle down
with the dust around you.
Look around, and you will find yourself
falling through the crack in the universe.
Dust NightDust Night by jackgunski
Moonlight settles like a dust on the grass.
It coats each blade, giving a slight florescence,
breathing the slightest bit of life,
as though the ground beneath were its child.
This dust settles almost everywhere,
but I can only feel it here,
as it travels through my open window
on the chilled breeze.
It is a soft dust,
it brings its softness to the world,
and if you breathe it in slowly,
you can feel your heart fluoresce.

The Flavour Of AutumnThe air had a sweet aroma, mixed with the crisp coolness telling us that winter was around the corner. I lay there feeling the leaves crunch, and crackle underneath me. I could feel the cool dampness from the morning dew that had settled upon them. I could also feel the warmth of the sun, and your body as you were laying there beside me. I could feel your hand underneath the pile of dying leaves as you gripped my own.The Flavour Of Autumn by AlFangMindSculptor42
I glanced over at you, and saw you were also looking at me. I looked at your eyes that seemed to absorb every colour of fall, and reflect them back to me. I could see the golden rays of the sun, the reds, greens, yellows, and browns of the leaves around us. I felt that if I stared too long, I too would be absorbed, and be another colour possibly not so beautiful looking in your eyes.
You leaned forward, and gave me a kiss, and I think that if autumn had a flavour it would taste just like this.
The Great PerhapsPerhaps the stars are in the sky for the number of souls that I love.
Perhaps the sun shows that we should also radiate like her.
Perhaps the night hides all our dark sides.
Perhaps the laughter takes away the pain and gives hope.
Perhaps the sea does not know where to spread, knows no bottom.
Perhaps the waves hit the shore, at low tide and high tide.
Perhaps the cycle of the sun, over hill and vale.
Perhaps the bothering dream, day and night.
Perhaps a balance tilts to the left or right.
Perhaps an uncertain decision, whether yes or no.
Perhaps is the dance rhythm of possibilities
Perhaps sits as deep as the sea of time.
Unappreciated Works Feature #25The feature for the month of February is up!
So, the works for this month are:
(There are more in the group, but for now, these are the ones which have had limited exposure thus far, and require comments I also understand that its below the standards of this group as well, but more submissions to this group would be helpful in remedying this problem. Those will be immediately added so as to give more fodder for commentary)
And well, the rules:
Now, the rules for submission are as follows:
* One critique allows you to submit one deviations, two critiques allows you to submit three deviations and three critiques or more allows you to submit five deviations for the whole month.
* You have to link/thumb the work which you have provided a critique on, to this journal.
* Number of deviations featured is based on how many critiques are given – they are equal to the number
