I never thought I would be so lost,
And I never thought I would care;
Enough to salvage at any cost,
A love that seemed so rare.
My mind and heart were each at odds;
In Sleepless Hours - 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...
If I had to describe you
In one word,
I would say a picture,
Because you to me,
Are worth far more than one word,
You are amazing,
You are intelligent,
You are beautiful...
You Never Know
Twisted metal, torqued into unlikely shapes
curls about me like some maniac blacksmith
had pummeled me into the earth with the forces
of inertia; laws of physics...
The night sky is amazing to me. It creates so many possibilities and ideas. Far above and spreading so vast, with spots of hope filling all empty spaces, my eyes start to...
If Only They Spoke ... - 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...
Message at the Bottom of a Bottle
I'm afraid you and I are too easy to coerce
Because guilty is just too close to guilt free
And I can't decide which is worse
You break me down...
Jojo LeMo drew from his own
He had fun and joy with all his little toys
He was born of Mama LeMown
He drew from her own, and forgot about little boy and his childish joy
This is a haunting land,
giant trees reaching into the sky.
It is a mystical place,
with old spirits walking by.
Twisted fingers of drift wood,
drying, piled up...
"thin soup of souls"
his leather face worn thin by the years
is tanned and striking as it catches
the approaching dawn
his threadbare fingers nimble still
weave the moment into...
The Truth About You and I
I've got bruises highlighting my skin
And cuts stringing along my soul
Your only objective here is to win
And my goal is to be in control
Will To Fight - 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...
Stepped on me
Shut me in
Locked me out
I don't know
What's going on
With holding upset
I don't understand
I want to hit out
I want to fight...
Motions - Open, close,
the door swings its motions
the air rushes through
the cycle it seems
But where is
what makes it new?
Our EP Gesture Dance -
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,
Mosaic - Broken pieces, shattered all around
We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground
Torn pages, in the book of my life
In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight...
The Mask - 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...
An olde, owed, ode, to Nothing.
a warm puppy on a cold day,
black folded into black and whisked
swaddled in papyrus...
The Gates Of Heaven And Hell -
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
A Sunny Day In Thalamus - 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...
Twisting,turning and spinning they fly, effortlessly through the sky.
Burning, churning, and returning they glide, evoking stamina and pride.
People gawk and stare at the power...
Ode To A Lost Sock - (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...
Be My Love -
I happened [stumbled] upon her one day,
Clad in a muddied dress, in disarray.
Damsel why on this floor dost thou lie?
Reply, "I am alive? I am ali-"
I've Looked at Life
I've had a chance to look at life,
And watch the years go by.
I have seen the setting sun,
As it paints a crimson sky.
I have seen the green green...
Pain In These Eyes - When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything.
You see emotions and their journey.
Their heartbreaks and their fears.
Their memories, maybe even...
You let ring, that old masking laugh
It bellows and cries
As it begs for a grasp
Of a chance to make known
That which threatens macabre
Yet, upright your lips curl
i came upon a girl in the wood
her sun floating smile could not be repressed
the light of her inner shone clearly
like song simple and true
i asked her and i...
In The Gloam -
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...

Only to forget the painful bruises,
Of passion ignited then exhausted quickly,
While being stared at by eyes pale and...
Not The End Of Me - 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...
True Love and Beauty
There are some things you love
imperfect though as they are;
sometimes you wish you can improve them,
that in one way or another
you can somehow make them...
in the dark.
Caves of ice,
The Winds Of Time - The winds of time erode away
The memories of our past,
Leaving us with shadowy thoughts
That disappear too fast.
And so we cling with all our might
And try to...
I'm used to being rejected,
Nearly used to being neglected,
He said that he truly loved me but those feelings that he's projected,
Doesn't amount to a thing.
While sacrificing my...
Saturday mornings' hangover helped,
Now I miss you,
I dreamt of you this morning;
The way you've always comforted me,
Your feel, taste, seeing us together.
Deeper Stranger. - Deeper Stranger.
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...
"dreads and beads"
the tide of the days winds shifted
and the sunlight submerged returns
she lay in the pieces of sunshine
sculpture of dreads and beads
fine tuned erotica machine...
Sadness is something that everybody feels but hides at the same time
We want to act strong on the outside
But cry and scream for somebody to save us on the inside
A Little Love Story - The man of pain sat alone,The girl of hope sat in pain,Both looked at the stars, Where they touched the moons light,One so far,The other further,But the...
She Lies Easy - 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...
Threads Of Ourselves -
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...
Garden... - 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...
Real Pain - 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
Nobody is beautiful
Nobody is perfect
We all have our flaws
And yet, we judge each other
We look in the mirror every day
And see the flaws that we have either been born...
Stalking - It never rightfully belonged to me
But I wanted it nonetheless,
So when you were distracted and couldn’t see
I took it, I confess.
I thought that it might take a while...
Memories of waver
Within the darkness in my mind, the shackles of suppressed memories unfold, into a delicate flower that spurs out the poison of my undoings. Hance I think to...
Long Distance Love - Miles of empty air between us,
We still manage to love.
Through time and space,
The affection finds its way.
Words cannot take the place
Of physical contact...
You - (reposting this again...sorry :) )
you were the first one who said i looked beautiful any other way.
in those godawful thick glasses.
even if i wear my hair short.
I didn't have to words yesterday to tell you how I felt.
I wrote it down carefully with the hope that it helped.
As I fought back my tears, I wrote with rage,
I think i like the hunger...
The tightening of my gut.
Mouth watering fantasies,
Butterflies won't fill me up.
I think i like the hunger...
MEMORIES OF LOST LOVE
by Edward York
Your smiling face is all I see,
As I lay down to sleep.
The memories, that seems to cloud my mind,
Are all that I can keep.
When I awake they...
