Projection is finding that only detractors are guilty of sin
Where faulting contingent extraneous factors about your own life
Result in a cleanly appearing absolving of burden or strife
Which only conceals all the rotting of conscience that happens within
It’s here that the narcissist thrives when they see all the flaws in our culture
Because it can only be others who taint it and warp it with lies
But lies upon lies only make for a fantasy through their own eyes
Which makes them the valiant hero when really they're only a vulture
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
They’re speaking quite loudly with haughty indignance
Revealing their chances have dwindled and faded
To make their true mark on the world they’ve created
While moaning and screaming with seething malignance
Their grievances found with the people they pester
Is nominal next to their toxic behavior
If only as children they’d had more exposure
Instead of allowing resentment to fester
If even a purposeful path they can follow
It’s buried in mindless indulgent pretension
Abandoning reason, denying dissension
They threaten detractors with words ringing hollow
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
These tomes transport our minds into a place
Removed from living’s ordinary pace
Both poetry and prose they make us cry
With words impressions find their wings to fly
The varied themes in words do tantalize
Between the lines with passion exercise
They speak to all the struggles that you know
Within a realm that only you can go
Within the gilded pages of a book
As visions with the open eyes to look
Upon the paper where the words were made
They fill our hearts with all our dreams displayed
These pages as they are they are a gift
Which we into our fantasies do drift
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
Moonlight it shines ever brightly it glows on the edge of the basin
Hauntingly gazing The Moon through the dark with the light it does hasten
Darkened the depths of the water beneath it does shimmer with moonshine
Mirroring all the crepuscular features it sings to the skyline
Blowing the wind finds a path through the thicket of evergreen pine trees
Greenery turning to darkness it swallows the moonlight with great ease
Swaying and rocking the leaves and the branches they dance with a measure
Marking the coastline the forest it beckons the night beasts with pleasure
Pulling the tide as it fills up the heavens with luminous power
Reaching the peak of its monstrous potential upon the twelfth hour
Primal encompassing fear trepidation and curious urges
This does The Moon in the sky represent every night it emerges
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
The Dark
In this strange realm it seems there is no peace
A place where you’d not want to live or die
Above our heads the storms they do not cease
The darkened clouds they dominate the sky
But this the weather is not why I rue
I tell you now the world is not so flawed
It is in fact those mediocre few
That taint our world with pestilential fraud
The dark and grey reminds me of the heart
The nuances that life is really for
For all the pain in us that does depart
It still remains as memories evermore
Those people who engage in guile and hate
Who lie and steal our momentary bliss
They do not have a lonely, dreadful fate
Instead they have a life without abyss
The void is dark and has a lot to teach
Reminding us the meaning of our fears
By challenging perceptions out of reach
It shows us all is more than it appears
And through these lessons we embrace the night
We find a peace in things that are obscured
Though some react with ignorance and fright
We build upon the things that have endured
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
The Spark
We write the tales of joy
Sharp words we do employ
From deep within the heart
The purpose of our part
We walk on virgin roads
And work in stranger modes.
With care we do progress
Despite the great distress
With passing of the times,
The poets and the rhymes
With love they do infuse
The blessings of the muse.
Around the world and back
We're kept along the track
By muses as they speak
They make the boldest meek
And blessed are the ones
That find her when she runs
In circles through our heads
While sleeping in our beds
In dreams is where she lives
Through inspiration gives
The words we hope to use
The blessing of the muse
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
From darkened corners of my inner mind
With vicious hatred and a pain severe
Emmerges feelings of a beastly kind
That manifest from angst and greatest fear
From skin to bone they painfully create
A dwelling sense of fundamental grief
These adverse feelings they do not abate
They will maintain until I find relief
Frustration yeilds a vastly simpler thought
When its not found this feeling does abide
A semblance of control is what is sought
Within my heart resentment does reside
Its through acceptance of my feelings here
That I can live in balance without fear
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
This is our great temptation
That comes from our intent
Into our inclination
It follows our descent
Of that which isnt mentioned
It speaks without a word
Within the heart contentioned
In this it is preferred
Without the clearest motive
Our game continues on
Inside our minds distortive
About what we will spawn
In truth there isn't much
That we will not include
In sight and smell and touch
And hear with attitude
The fun is in the guilt
We all construct about
The structures we have built
And things that we seek out
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
The hanging grapes upon the verdent vine
Throughout the many lands in which its grown
Becomes the charming drink that is called wine
Indeed its quite the venture to be known
For women and for men it has been made
It's inspiration to assembled masses
To drink and to enjoy is how it's stayed
As its gladly poured into the glasses
With pleasure we do find it is to drink
And though it can be quite the awful bane
It warms our hearts and makes us want to think
Into our hearts and minds it will remain
A soulful pleasure it will always be
A greatly blessed comfort unto thee
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
Nature is our greatest teacher
Spawning every living creature
Void of prejudice or guile
Leaves our world quite versatile
Freely giving, never taking
And continually making
All the wonders of the earth
We ourselves are of its birth
Lacking sorrow or compunction
Lends it to a greater function
That of living and of change
With the varied, and the strange
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 2
To my father and my mother,
In my world there is no other,
Quite as giving or as true,
Or as caring, as you two.
Even through the paths unknown
You make sure I'm not alone;
In the troubles and mistakes,
You are here for both our sakes.
Loving in so many ways
Always there to give me praise
Giving guidance and respect
Splendid that we do connect
Full of purpose and devotion
Sending you my deep emotion
I am greatful to be yours
Allies that this son adores
It's my heart I do express
That I wish great happiness
For our family and you both
Know this is my solemn oath
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
The Wayfarer
He the cunning navigator
Is an adept conservator
Paths sincere he does surmise
Carefully he holds supplies
Working trades with great finesse
Each detail he does address
With great skill he does assure
That the methods are secure
Speaking frankly and direct
By his word is great respect
To his guidance we rely
And his zeal we can't deny
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 1 0
The Trickster
He the joker plays the part
Making fooling quite the art
Jesting with a playful tone
His sharp wit is thusly shown
Speaking with a cheerful theme
Sometimes with a dopey scheme
Nonetheless a thoughtful fellow
Even when his mood is mellow
Oh the stories he recants
And the ways he often rants
Smiling widely with a grin
Its the fun we'll find him in
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 0 0
The Integrator
His technique is great and bold
With machines it can be told
There is not another man
Knowing gadgets as he can
He constructs for you and me
Widgets of great artistry
With his hands and focused mind
Manifests the skillful kind
His is through the mechanized
That we know is greatly prized
It is far from automatic
Craftsman of the systematic
:icontelaestheticist:telaestheticist 1 0
The Champion
In his body is a thirst
Quenched by competition first
By the edge of knife and sword
Is the warrior explored
From the earnest of his motions
Are great passions and devotions
His are strong and quite astute
Clear of doubt and resolute
In his heart is where you'll find
That his character's aligned
With his vigor and control
That of honor is his goal

dark night
cold air
feel the chill of
death run down your spine
it feels so good
all the way down
filling your every being
it comes again
as wet drops fall
upon you
and harder
gaining speed
you're soaking now
close your eyes
never forget it
make it last forever
it never ends
here comes
the rain.
