Static Aesthetic

Writing myself in a text reflection
Based in my relative self perception
Calibrating lines into alignment
From honest lies to the truth of who I'm called to be
Divided against myself, cloven verses of the life and death of my identity

Something like a man yet with the hope of being something more
Is it so much a matter of what I'm writing about or who I'm writing for?

Vainglory spouts from the same fountain of an eternal legacy
Of light and of shadows, the dawning hope of so much more than me
One moment my mere relatable best guess at reality
The next, the truth, that despite every bondage, I am free

Light affliction boasts the heaviness of a vapor
I put my heart back into perspective
To know myself in words and yet become more than just who I am on paper
Two tongues in cheek devouring the crow consumed by the utterance of fire
I am a messenger of truth and at the same time an honest liar

Every word taking shape after the influence of pain and a resilient spirit
Speaking of what I feel and what is faith
Emotion is my illusion

Learning to discern the voice of God the more I hear it
Ripples of eternity in every wave
I sketch to redraft before I draw conclusion

All things prewrit, prolific prose of the poetic prophetic
Diamond lines amidst the coal
Fine tune to dismiss the static aesthetic
Every word in process of mining out the soul...

cabcool was the cure

Bee to the blossom, moth to the flame;
Each to his passion; what's in a name?

—Helen Hunt Jackson

 
she joined the staff of moe
on my eighth anniversary
but no one stepped in as her guide
and so i snuggled to her side
mentor-mentee relationship
was no less novel, no more hip
because she would not even eat
unless i also sat at meat
 
one day i had to send her mail
whose speed was only like a snail
she had a digital address
but i had none, i must confess
so when she said j-s-g nice
it made me promptly realise
initials with an adjective
was all i was required to give
 
since she was nice i could be cool
with no threat to the golden rule
and so we thought of it and laughed
both satisfied with my first-draft
from that day thenceforth, we have used
jsgnice and stood amused
that c-a-b cool was the cure
for my snail-mail discomfiture!

Exactly what it says on the tin - "Underdweller" because this is "DeepUndergroundPoetry". Uh...

Unique Scars

 
Let me run my fingers through your hair
When you smile all i can do is Stare

Can we be foolish for awhile
As we enjoy are pity lives

Counting raindrops
Impossible right?

I enjoyed watching you play outside the rain
That's why love-you/">i love you
you're Uniquely Insane

As we gaze upon the stars
No one can hold us
even strong bars

i love you so much
even when you left me
With a unique Scar

Please excuse me, KGERICD, but are you certain that you have posted this in the appropriate forum?
How does it explain your pen name?

Just wondering.

Wallyroo92

Twelve thugs on drugs packin’ mad heat were about to shoot at me,
They was talking smack when I clapped back carefree and happily,
I was young but then again I was seventeen just like my magazine,
‘Cause my glock nine had more speed and rhyme than they had ever seen.

They started spraying but I was praying the Lord to afford me aim,
Suckers took cover like little bitches when they saw my tracers flame,
One drunk punk got hit in the junk when a bullet ricocheted,
And the prick yelled “Ah! My dick” then they all quickly felt afraid.

They fired uninspired while I was wired without dread or fear,
The lame brains saw that the aim from my pistol was crystal clear,
They stopped trippin’ cus I was pickin’ ‘em off one by one,
Ninety two bullets missed my mullet until they I said I won.

I’m just bullshittin’ –
Wally has always been my nickname, I know it ain’t that cool,
Roo just rhymes with ‘92, the year I graduated school.

Congratulations to Carpe on runner up and to gardenlover on winning the trophy. I'm honored to stand on the podium. It was certainly a fun and interesting comp seeing the origins of names.
