i'm a lover of literature & beautiful things. :heart:

"Beautiful things make people happy."
-- Eva Zeisel

what we are all about.

Literarily Speaking is devoted to featuring a collection of well-deserving deviants and their literary prowess on a monthly basis. We aim to inspire fellow writers to never give up and aim for the stars and beyond.

Every month we bask in the glory of a plethora of talented writers and an aspiring literature group; we host engaging interviews, comprehensive features, meet 'n greets, and much more!

literary lovelies.

reentryyou are not a constellation.
there's no brilliant cluster
pumping in your chest,
no nebulae atwist
inside your slender neck.
you don't wrap your asterism
in cosmic lace,
nor do atmospheres
feel pressure
in your veins.
you are not blinding,
are not fusion,
are not distant;
but your gravity
is dangerously
Let's Go HomeThere she sits,
Alone and afraid,
She clutches her best friend close,
It’s soft fur giving her comfort,
But her teddy bear won’t bring her a future,
The walls around her dance,
Shadows of a life that could have been,
Dreams that are too far to reach,
But her heart keeps on beating,
Her princess dress is worn and tattered,
The color has faded,
What once was pink is now gray,
Her shoes have holes,
But she still moves forward,
The walls around her dance,
Music plays in a far off world,
She stands up and moves forward,
Is this dream too far to reach?
She can see the way out,
Her little hands try to turn the door knob,
But it’s locked and she has no key,
There she falls,
And stares at the light underneath,
The walls around her dance,
Shadows of a life that could have been,
Dreams that are too far to reach,
But her heat keeps beating,
Tears cover her face,
Can they wash away the pain?
She stands and pounds on the door,
Please someone, she whispers,
I just want to be loved,
How the waves tasted your anklesSince you are the only sailor
of the sea that my moon-
child eyes so easily bleed,
I crumble to shoreline pieces
every time I press my lips
to half-neglected sea glass,
haunted by visions of the way
you rolled cherries on your tongue.

vintage recordshe only wanted her to love him as much as he loved her
just long enough for him to record that feeling
and put on replay for the rest of forever.
Ugly HeartIs my heart ugly, is that why you won't listen?
You write false words to me, tricking my weak ugly heart.
You say that your words are not a joke.
Yet you continue the same tear jerking pattern.
Delicate flesh plucked from my weak heart.
My bleeding shows well through my eyes.
I shall shut this window to the soul, and shut you out as well.
No longer may you deceive, for I shall raise the bridge.
I will cut all our connections, and untie our ties.
I shall speak no more word to you.
My absence shall not be cruel.
For you have been the one plucking feathers,
From my ugly weak heart.
For the DragonladyMournful dragon cries
fill the Thread-free skies
one has gone forever between.
Her work; bright like fire,
her world; our hearts desire,
goodbye to Pern's most valiant queen.
A legacy remains.
Dragons will fly again.
She's captured our hearts and mind's eye.
In memories, stay,
you will not fade away.
Fly high, Dragonlady, fly high!

Dae ye like Outlander, Sassanach?
