I planted this seed...
watered it with my blood...
tried my best to shine...
my inner light upon it...
so it might prosper...
but as it broke through the soil...
I knew it was fragile...
maybe I sheltered it too much...
perhaps I didn't give it...
as much as I...
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
Just in case
You put a smile on my face
Making my heart skip a beat
Soul is now whole and complete
Challenged the depths of my mind
Darkness no longer left to find
Things you make my body feel
Wounds are beginning to heal
Sparking a brand new imagination
Friendship built on a...
Thanksgiving feast is over,
We haven't even digested the meals,
Before Bombarded with commercials,
And loads of black Friday deals.
There is still turkey in the fridge,
And a pumpkin pie or two,
While shoppers skim the paper,
To plan out what to do.
The football games are over...
The feelings we share I ride like a wave,
The ups the downs the direction they make,
On a magic carpet that we made,
From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid
the vessel counts as much as the map,
The carriage awaits for us to step up,
I admit Its scary as it might...
eyes expresses nothing but cold and distant
My smiles are only because I'm enjoying
No, I don't miss anyone.
Past is not what I want to look at anymore
Few people are those whom I don't want anymore
I gave and gave and nothing I received
Now I'm tired of giving so I left all...
As a veil in your thoughts and dreams
Image of my red lips and red hair
Is what you remember
But no life is behind those thin eyes
While the real ones gleamed that colour
Like the rest of me
Shards tearing us apart
Or perhaps we were always torn...
and I lashed out, a pizza delivery driver merged into traffic and I remembered Autumn and Football, running immortal and the sound of defeat in his voice as I slipped away and he slid in the mud, She said nothing and texted him while the billboards told us how to feel.
I knew better
I put myself in this position
Just when I think I'm winning
I start losing
This game called love
It's so confusing
A vicious cycle with no conscience
No remorse, I made my choice
I sacrificed my heart
Was torn apart by feelings I let loose
It's a noose...
Be the villain in your dreams
Watch the hero let you down
As you wake up the next day
To realize you aren't one
You fear the parents
Fear the crowd
They won't let you pass
What a bummer
What a son
You missed your last mass
Your last mass
Flip another coin
just a generous chance
of the stepdown therapy
Stepdown Therapy is the one that tapers the dosage...
Your memories addicting
I love you, but I understand
Love and possession are not the same
You don't need a mess
I can't bring you that
I love you, and you may not know
But I do, and I'm pretending
To write to you
Instead of chasing when I'm wearing chains
In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold
I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams
You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...
Sometimes occasions come our way,
Inspiring memories good and bad.
The occasion that is now close at hand,
Brings me memories of my dad.
The things he taught me have stayed in place,
And have become a map for me to tread.
As he told me about the things in...
She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...
Cold black heart
Been torn apart
Blood black as coal
Feelings you stole
No warmth in sight
Cold as a winters night
Trail of Hurt left behind
Brutality in your mind
Destruction is you goal
Torturing people's soul
Pure evil inside and out
Love long gone...
In the gloam
deep in the forest
where the faeries sleep
There is one who knows
She knows the full measure
of you; the flame your smile kindles
The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke
And the wake you leave in your leaving.
In the gloam
deep in the forest
like the rest
I will always be
What they can't see
I'll just be myself
Never have the wealth
Nor the fine cars
Can't give you the stars
Don't own a Rolex watch
Clothes don't match
Saying that comes from the past
Nice guys do finish last
I am very giving
Work hard for my...
and fire in your soul that speaks to me
Beyond boundaries and oceans and timezones
There is a trust in your tone and your gaze in your pauses that amazes me that each and every revealing revelry of who I am
Embraced by your longing gaze, the biting of your lip, your wistful...
when life feels like an abandoned boulevard
But in the darkest nights you see the brightest stars
The bright tomorrow might not heal your scars
But keep in mind they chiselled you into who you are
If you open up your chest and see what you're made of you'll realise you're finer...
I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...
She lies easy in my arms
This dimly moonlit night
Her body supple to my charms
She moans with such delight
I brush her hair back, find her neck
And kiss her softly there
My lips they trace her gentle curves
They make her arch and swear
While fingers brush and pinch and...
My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim.
My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...
falling in love seems to be
like experiencing an encounter
with a Black Hole
in which we seem to have
as much to say
(especially as resisting it is concerned)
as a cohort of shiny Comets
struggling to prevent
being sucked in by
woke me up
just in time
to not allow this
to come back
i was really
since it was much easier
to go get out of bed
her litter box
than it would be
to empty my mind
should the dream
be allowed to
find every moment to find happiness, indiscriminately. Recklessly we lose ourselves into journeys made for epic adventures
Time stops and the Sun appears to wink at
Swings of clouds surge higher
Every woe melted, every sensation sublime
A free fall from Cloud 9 that makes a...
So alive amid dying light,
Embraced by the night,
Illuminate with unseen bliss.
The earth is your canvas.
Scary, yet I’ve no fear.
From afar I see slow dancing:
On haunted soil, frolicking
In ragged dress with messy hair,
Awkward steps oh, so dear.
Remove your cozy boots...
Let me look at your face
One last time because it’s still beautiful to me.
And darling you were all I’d ever need
But that’s the past and it’s passed.
We’re well past the point of no return.
My loves an ancient relic
Compared to where we...
that I will go mad
it is also quite possible
that also you will go crazy
thus the possibility of you and me
seeing through the Game of Life
why don't we thus decide
to take one day
at a time
On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station
Lost in tender admiration
I had to turn my gaze away.
For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today.
Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep.
The only time...
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
Are at one with the universe and the cosmos
I gaze upwards to see a celestial
Divine of ambiance within the clouds
The clouds unveil...
and empty lies.
People are suffering and wondering why.
You cant trust a soul and the love seems to be fleeing.
People love to spread hate and that's all we're seeing.
Open up your hearts and minds and start focusing on being.
Why cant people grasp the simple things and be...
Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone
wondering what the hell I did wrong
Trying to pick myself up and carry on
Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life
Lost your will to fight
Trying not to listen to the voices in your head
Fighting against the...
If only they spoke ...
.. Those walls .. If only they spoke ...
To tell about that hidden truth and what really goes around ..
To tell about those secretive screams that never made a sound ..
To tell about those real smiles that yet haven't been found ..
To tell how those lies...
Everyone was having a grand time
Then a flicker caught my eye
Staring at the licking flames
I saw my heart
Choke on the smoke
And cry till you can see
Love is a fire
It leaves you burning all night
But in the morning light
Your heart is black and cold as coal
As I lay back down to sleep
to dream of nature's virtue, sweet
to dream of her within my mind,
to dream of once upon a time
to dream the dream of
happy ever afters
to dream once more
of nature's laughter
to know it teases,
and in it's recourse
I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way
I relish every night, and I live every day.
I live, I laugh, I write, I sing,
I wonder what the new days will bring.
Then I get home, and I take off the mask.
The day, an almost impossible task,
Is finally over, and so I lay Down,
You are lost
In faded colours of Summer's smile
The world we had now locks me out
I tear and strain in desperate style
You drift away, I scream and shout
My blood dries in the vein
True love just means real pain.
You are lost
Until moonbeams send you from the skies
I'm sick, and it's a pretty little illness
A prefrontal bacteria that eats away my willingness
To live within the social parenthesis
I'm twisted, sick from this political annilingus.
The jacket that I'm wearing will define my disorder
I'm due to see a professional Visceral...
Waking up in the morning,
another day dawns,
I rush to my computer,
I flip the cold box on.
As it's familiar sounds start,
Time to pour a cup,
I rush back to sign on,
To see if he's already up.
The "Sign In" is complete,
Today begins anew,
I gesture "Good Morning...
knock- this send a jolt down my body
The perfect blend of nerves and excitement I call out your name
And a sexy, confirmation brings even greater flush through my neck and face
Unlocking the door, it finally unveils the person behind the secret messages, one look , barely two...
(Barvo's note - I don't actually write poems. I have no urge and don't read it for pleasure. I wound up in a writing class taught by a poet, so had to write several poems. When I can't do something well, I hide behind humour. Behold the result!)
Ode to a Lost Sock
cannot clearly see
What is the use of ears
if you are told you cannot properly hear
What is the use of the mind
if you are told you do not really understand
What is the use of the World
If the best philosophers call it just a Metaphor
What is the use of your Self
Nothing shows my feelings as your name inside a ring.
I could write it out in letters, across the endless azure sky,
But sun will set and sky grow dark as time goes flying by.
Carved in stone, etched in steel yet gentile as a dove,
A single ring, a name within shall show to...
