Contraption
Reddening anthracite fills up the furnace with sweltering fire Boiling the water it builds up the steam with a powerful tension Pushing the pistons and grinding the gears in a single dimension Forwardly moves does this massive contraption through pilot’s desire Picking up speed as the roar of the engine possesses the hot air Outstretching wings start to lift as propellers awaken their loud turn Buttons and switches they fill up his console with many he need learn Gripping the yokes in the cockpit he pulls up against them with great care Further beneath him the ground drifting lower with fields far and quite still Flight he achieves after many endeavors and failures for certain Feeling the joy of his triumph he glides through the clouds like a curtain Smoke fills the air and is joined with the rain as he treasures his great thrill

Projection is finding that only detractors are guilty of sin Where faulting contingent extraneous factors about your own life Results 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

Apathy
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

Pages
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

Moonlight
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

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 w

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 mus

Rage
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

Bawdy
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

Vintage
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

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

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

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

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
