Skeleton-Crew

Howdy folks! 

I was late posting this last year on my Heartbeats blog, because it took me almost a month to complete and I also have/had other, more pressing priorities. Real life always takes precedence and being creative, as much as I love creating, is something I do as I can, when I don't have other things to do that need to be done. I'm just now deciding now to add it to this, my Rhymetyme blog, since I didn't last year.

While creating this piece, however, I began believing I wouldn't ever get it finished because I kept thinking of more elements to add. I love adding details and I feel it's well worth the extra time involved. The title I decided to go with does give new meaning to the term, 'skeleton crew', though. hehe

"Fright Night"
- with artwork, "Skeleton Crew"

At last the night is here,
The night of fright and fear;
The night of Halloween,
A ghastly, ghostly scene.

As witches make their brew,
Calling on the Skeleton Crew
To, from their slumber, rise
And meet without disguise.

The moon is full and bright
To make luminous the night,
As amber flames flicker in each lit Jack
And lick the brewing pot, burning it black.

With winter's breath coming, near,
On October's night, the last this year,
The chill to the bones, not in the least,
Matters to those who have deceased.

As spirits awaken, rattling their bones,
With a chorus of their moans and groans,
Rustling Autumn leaves blanketing the ground,
A symphony commences of an eerie sound.

Distant werewolves with blood curdling howling,
Are now on the hunt, have begun their prowling.
The owls are hooting, "Who-who-who who-whooooo,
Who dares to venture out this night through?"

As the graveyard comes alive with the walking dead,
Who've been sleeping restlessly in their earthly bed,
Waiting for the celebration, an annual eventful night,
When spirits mingle, old and new, a welcomed sight.

There are stories to be told, legends to be read,
Like Sleepy Hollow, the horseman with no head.
There's news of the living that must be spread,
Like who among the living is about to join the dead?

Ah, it is a Fright Night, one that spooks the mind;
One that's to the living, an event often quite unkind.
But to the spirit world, it's a night looked forward to,
The annual congregation of the Skeleton Crew.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗

Halloween-2018

Howdy folks! 

"When true to ourselves and real we live,
We need no mask for an illusion to give."
~ Artsieladie Quote 

Halloween is great for stirring the imagination.

It's all Hallow's Eve, with tricks up their sleeve,
Trick or treaters have begun their descending
Upon this spooky night, packed with fright,
Along with spirits of all sorts attending.

As Casper says, "Boo" and the owl says, "Who-o"
And Jack's face is lit up and bright;
The raven's arrived and is still unwived,
No change in his loveless plight.

The moon has risen, free of daylight's prison,
And now sheds light on an earth below,
That's ready and waiting and anticipating
Another grand and spooktacular show.

Over tall, naked trees, wherever they please,
Witches, on their brooms fly high,
Not wishing to spar, avoid bats' radar,
Searching for food in the sky.

With moans and groans and rattling of bones,
Skeletons start their waking and stir,
To rise from their bed, the unresting dead,
As the wind gossips among the fir.

Goblins and ghosts and all such ghoulish hosts,
Are out and about for their party time.
Unmasked, naturally scary, all living be wary
And even before the midnight chime.

Now on the prowl, the werewolves howl,
Each one a starving, treacherous beast.
The thirsting vampires with bloody desires,
Are seeking necks to gorge on and feast.

Fast asleep is the sun. Hallow's Eve's begun.
As screams echo the sound of fright and fear;
The creepy are walking; prey, they're stalking,
Reaping souls before the dawn gets here.

To be up for the task, do wear your mask,
For you must blend in with the scene,
To keep safe through the night, hidden from sight,
And to survive the night of Halloween!

🎃 Happy Halloween! 🎃
💗 Have a blessed day! 💗

Flying-Monkey

Howdy folks! 

The term, 'flying monkey' is used in psychology, referring to a person who believes and believes in another person under false pretenses and is usually associated with narcissism and narcissistic abuse, since narcissists (narcs) are known as masters of manipulation (especially through gaslighting) and of disguise (many 'masks'; impostors); are pathological liars, are extremely arrogant (either to cover their high level of insecurity and low self esteem - 'vulnerable narcissism' or because they really believe they're perfect - 'grandiose narcissism')

The person believed in, projects themselves as one of good character, when in fact, they aren't. Narcs are shallow and spineless, lack the ability to empathize, love, feel remorse, or care about anyone other than themselves. They insatiably crave attention, respect, Love, admiration, adoration, acceptance, etc., but since their personality type ultimately undermines and destroys that which they crave, to compensate they're boastful, they lie, and manipulate to control another, unable to comprehend that the very tactics they're using are really working against them. 

Flying monkeys believe in the goodness of another, though falsely projected, and are different than enablers, since enablers merely either go along with or cover up an abuser's bad behaviour. Empaths are particularly vulnerable, are easy targets for a narc and empaths provide narcs their 'narcissistic supply', which narcs feast on. Since empaths are caring, compassionate, and nurturing people, who see good in others, they're an easy mark for a narc. 

"Flying Monkey"
Flying Monkey - poetry by Artsieladie

was once your Flying Monkey,
For I believed so much in you.
I sang loudly your praises,
As Flying Monkeys often do.

To believe you to be a narc
Was farthest from my mind,
But a heart believing can
And often is so blind.

I defended you many times
Knowing I'd be reprimanded,
Ostracised, belittled;
As crazy, even branded.

Even when the red flags
Kept appearing one by one,
I then made excuses, many,
For your wrongful deeds done.

I was warned by others,
But when one's heart is true,
They will remain steadfast;
Stay loyal through and through.

The only colours that I saw
Were of rose coloured glass.
All your other colours hidden,
In a character, cruel and crass.

I gave willingly of my time.
Endless hours were consumed,
Doing things for you, your dream,
As your ego soared and bloomed.

When the red flags became
Too many to overlook, ignore,
To be fair with you, still,
Your reason I then asked you for.

Instead of appreciating 
The chance I gave you to explain,
You attacked me viciously
And began your smearing campaign.

Your other Flying Monkeys 
You then sicced them on me,
'Cause truth I'd learned about you,
Others might also learn and see.

No morals, no ethics,
No values, no integrity,
No remorse, no shame,
No compassion, no empathy.

You're just a narc
With no heart or soul;
Just emptiness inside,
A huge, black hole.

All these years and still,
Your stylus, never does it move.
Still arrogant and superficial
And stuck in your ego's groove.

But 'this' Flying Monkey
Has landed now on solid ground.
I see you for what/who you are
And truth rings a freedom sound.

All your Flying Monkeys
Can, your bidding, do,
But eventually all will learn
The truth and will bid you then, adieu.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗
