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 eternity.
Now, look into my eyes,
And tell me what you see.
Can you see the darkness,
That lives deep within me?
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
and take heed.
This tale of valor, of wit and wonderous deed.
From far off Elswyer a most distant place,
Came the greatest of Dragonborn that evil could face.
Saw it myself! I swear unto thee,
For adventurer i was till arrow struck knee.
I saw when Alduin met had his grim date...
I can't hold it in anymore
I shattered my own heart
Now I'm breaking down
I'm falling apart,
so listen to me now
I'm not okay
I'm not alright
This is the truth
I'm not Fine
My walls are crumbling Down
there's fire and hell all around
I can feel myself slowly...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Night's passionsEscape from the outsideWarm on the insideDreams for the soul.Will hushed voicesAnswer the prescient night?Can hearts know minds,And time becomeAllied to the soul?Bring your song to the window......and know the voice of the wind.
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...
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
brushes and paints
cannot do without
cameras and fancy lenses
sculptor needs a stone
or a piece of wood plus
hammer and chisel
yet we poets still
believe in using words
shadows and silence
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...
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
the door swings its motions
the air rushes through
the cycle it seems
But where is
what makes it new?
the people walk past
Below me the ground,
Above me the clouds
up behind you.
Slowly I shift aside your hair.
Letting my fingertips lightly caress your exquisite neckline.
A gentle first kiss placed upon your nape.
My arms slip under yours.
Wrapping around you soothingly.
A comforting firmness to my hold.
As you turn to face me, our...
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...
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...
Everything I write
Gets twisted into a fight
No matter how I feel
Words I have to conceal
Feelings I'm holding in
Pain and Hatred within
Trust has been shattered
My heart been tattered
Just cause love was lost
Thrown away at what cost
For another chance
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...
Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead.
Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again.
Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...
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...
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
your breath on the window and the sand dunes covering the playground, this isn't even the right house but there you are, calling me backwards,
And tomorrow with that leering idiots refrain,
Well suppose, just for a moment, I don't need either of you, let it rest under the...
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...
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...
path I take
Goes with me too
I can work alone
And think it is fun
To start a task
And see it done
I can sleep alone
For once I'm there
My dreams will take
I can stand alone
And face the fight
I will not run
If I know I'm right
But love alone
I can not do
(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
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
than her own brother?
Spent so much energy
I tried for the best.
I got to know you the best.
I got to see you grow
In ways others couldn't.
Trust was gained then lost
At the cost of others.
That's when you know
Life isn't truly fair.
It's not when you don't have money
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...
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...
who needed lyrics for a track he made. Let me know if you like (if you care), p.s., always available to write more for those that need it, i also do vocals:
“In Darkness Let Me Dwell”
(Deep spoken vocals/:32)
Winter's tendrils, crept across the land,
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
Empty spaces, covered in clutter
My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters
I see the places, where the...
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
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...
The way they walk, talk and stare..
I take from each movie a scene, a glance, every love word they share...
The way they hug, caress, the way they look in each others eyes..
The way they kiss, the way they smile..
in my head I'm replaying those scenes..
just a generous chance
of the stepdown therapy
Stepdown Therapy is the one that tapers the dosage...
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...
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...
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
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...
