Arrogance annoys me
Attitudes of conceit
Answers are always right
Acting authoritive 
Affecting the others
Admirable their not
A need to be on top...

CHEST THUMPING


May you be honed 
and strengthened 
by the humiliation
of occasional defeat.

Yet, in triumph,
may you shun urges
of chest-thumping
arrogance and conceit!...

P-ride and mind's conceit.

IRON STRONG


Though the faith 
he boasts about seems
unbreakable like iron,
it's iron cold, iron dead,

rusting away, 
corroded by bigotry 
and conceit, bloating 
his self-righteous head!...

Fade
I slit my wrists and watch them bleed. ,
I feel no pain, just emptiness and conceit,
As i lay here, my blood spills onto the floor,
All the time i spent trying to love,
Flashes before me, and i fade away......

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire...

Premium Member Conceited Love
What ills you elicit with your mordacious tongue
shackled am I, while you trifle with my love.
You horde my affections with a cartridge of conceit
then loiter in self pity as I, wizened, exit with relief.

Grandpop's Words

may you, in cowardice,
    be bold and prevail,
         yet kind to those who
              struggle, stumble and fail;

may you be honed 
    by occasional defeat,
         yet, in triumph, shunning
              urges of conceit!...

Raising my mind
Shutting my senses 
Hermetically 
Permanently 
Decisively

for Vanity 
Negativity 
Conceit
Arrogance

Puffiness 
Imagination 
Witticism
Presumption

Crisis 
Judgement 
And while I'm doing this 
I open my senses for love

Raising my mind...

Their weak hero
Softly softly not to smear
Your ego’s creation
Which kid gloves pat
Your yes men collective
Blind to their subdued hero
Nurture your conceit.
How you wear your crown
On your cowards brow
Pale yet blameless.
A little man in a big world
I never want to live in again.

They kissed, and kissed again
'neath the mistletoe like snow...
love stifled,did not grow,
so bittersweet,her lasting refrain...
her swain,she did not see again.

this quintain inspired by Debbie's poem ' ...a bittersweet vine' presented as a 'conceit' of her 
theme from nature

MINDBLOWN
I'm getting glory
I am a crazy poet
And I feel awesome!

I'm getting well-known
From around the world - oh yeah!
No conceit, but I

Think that I am smart
And worthy of praise and such
gettin' lots of views

I'm mind blown again
I feel accomplished! Yes sir!
I need an applause...

Lolita’s Conceit
 
Obsession defined
Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov
An accursed passion
Love’s true abomination.

Literary allusion
Tintinnabulation
Sounding moral oblivion 
God’s sure condemnation.

Let me share my views
Love is a clenched fist Love is bitter, the dark side of the street Love is another 'con' added to the list Love is demented, it oozes deceit Love is a tresure trove of lies and conceit

Premium Member A CONCEIT
the joy of
         the unexpected-
a cryptic
           riddle
a surrealist 
           allusion
naive
yet lucid
with hint
           & subtext:
a dreamlike
          fallacy
a perfect symbol
in quiet
           pathos,
a touching,
             vivid
footnote 
         to my story...

Premium Member when I
this is hellish born
when I cannot control my rudeness to other
when I deny my barbarity
when I want to be the unknown of my impurity
when I reach to vertex point of my conceit
when I make myself blind as the ruler of ego
when I create uproar for illegal demand

I am a proud girl, proud of achievements and work, of family and country. But, sometimes I lean to arrogance- to much pride to accept a helping hand. ____________________ October 28, 2018 Poetry/Choka/Pride Copyright Protected, ID 1060-031-01 All Rights Reserved. Written under Pseudonym.

A Metaphorical Heavy Crown
‘Heavy is the head that wears the crown’,
he thought as he admired his reflection.
It’s heavier as the ego brings it down,
when the mirror is your object of affection.

He is the King of Psyche, Lord of Conceit,
kiss the finger that don’s his ruby ring.
He wears a robe of superiority 
to display his narcissistic majesty....

H.R. 3162
Rolling arrogance
Invasion of mind
Perception skewed by wire

Revelations are rarely kind
Evolution of self reliance
Pernicious egos construct conceit
Under the pressure of false-flag terror
Battling ourselves mercilessly
Leaving the thieves to pillage
Individual thought too great a threat
Constitutional privilege rendered dead...
