Narcissism Admonition

Whisper not, those things which bring admiration

For folly is the action of dependency on adoration

And giveth no countenance to actions of commanding

Tis neither virtuous, nor rooted in the realm of logic

Grandiosity lays the foundational support for hubris

Stranded, as it may, in such an epistemological position,

A wayward visionary solipsism of your own machinations

Oh, I bid silence, for thoughts dour and obsessive

Exploitation invokes an ill-tempered and dank formulation

Infantile, encapsulated within narrowed declarations

Whenst chagrin planted into the ailing subconscious

Evolution imagined, predatorial, and consumptive

Seek not to render charisma towards a vile vapidity

Such as it is with steadfast coercion towards idolatry

Pedestal naught, nor on mountain top destined

Limitless in vision, yet detained by the wounding decision

Sagacity foreign, whilst conceit lingers under glorious banner

Tinkering with intellects tender, presumptive mentalities

Assumptive vacuousness, awaiting villainous injections

Crumbling of previous, reduction to scattered tokens

Diminutive instincts, pathologic, collectively torturous

Nay, step lively and boldly away from the minatory need

Those misanthropic stipulations anchored in egotism

Vengeance concealed in irrelevant administrations

Barbs and arrows beyond preclude, tormented targeting

How cynicism gathers compatriots, yet bold singularity

Each lance of affliction, every dagger, morbid malevolence

Fueled by the escalation of truculent fiendish narcissism

Cede interest, for the sake of pitiful necessity, perhaps

Surrender forth to mediations, find solace in understanding

Indeed, tis unworthy in fashion to seek unions of envy

Pervasive inconsistencies with antagonistic potency

Superiority in self-imposition of transactional actuation

Linger not to a mirror, and sights of withdrawal and resentment

Speak of time and tale, and their verses scribed in infamy

Selfish manifestations of capitulation carry scant reward

Entitlement a construct of the polluted compulsivity

Symbology meaningless, for measure has no tangibility

Corrupt conditionality of self-desired enablement

Discovery far beyond mortality, the constricted trajectory

Pray thee awakening before the gallop of the pale steed

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.
