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
dark, painted faces, staring back at me. Shadows on the wall, dancing in the light, waiting for me, to slip into the night. The voices they echo, whisper softly in my ear, but not like they once did, 'cause no longer do I fear. My mind is empty, my worries are gone, the demons...
when you found it.
A clean slate, unmarked and new.
Or a masterpiece waiting to be created.
You see my heart used to be black. Deeply altered by the forgotten parts of my life I left behind.
Because before my heart was white, I had to shed the black from me.
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...
we choose to be,
In that space I found you and you lead me to a path where you were afraid to go.
I started to walk and call you to come with me ..........
You didn't just told me to walk along
I walked and cried, walked in pain, that pain became a friend who I had to leave in...
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...
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
For you to realize your mistake,
And though I felt guilty in my guile
I held it close, for love’s sake...
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
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...
(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
that inspired me to write this one. Some of the lines I took are from the other poem. This poem is a mixture of my words and the author I cannot take all the credit.
I truly hope you get this letter,
And I hope you can make better.
I don’t mean...
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...
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 hold them near,
All the things for which we care,
And those that we hold dear.
No matter how much we try to cling...
The girl that died of a heartache passed me in the night whispering memories of youI stood to frightened to move for fear my eyes cast a lightand the darkness she drew like a cape around her shoulders.Her tears fell like jewels on the crushed lovers rulesthat you broke to bring...
I can feel your heartbeat--like a toy wound up,
A little porcelain monkey, manic, beating it's drum--
with a strange defiance, despite the fact that the drugs in your system have inevitably made you numb.
The blood has exited your brain, flowing from your cut...
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
a peace of mind
A peace of mind, that comes with time
That comes with time, and is a virtue
A virtue when felt, can never hurt you
& never hurt, is what I want
although what I want, is what I can't have
So what I can't have, is what I need
& what i need, doesn't need me...
an endless well
But I don't remember, how I fell
It seemed like forever, but I finally hit bottom
Was thinking these thoughts, when i shouldn't have thought em'
Sitting there hopeless, when I heard "rejoice"
But it was more like her thoughts,only in my own voice
I'm not gonna...
Cross their hearts hope they die
impale their bodies with the needles
Dismember their limbs from their bodies
Gut while they scream in pain
Cut their heart out put it in a jar
Pour their blood into some buckets
Rip their innards from their bodies
Store them in a...
In your palm, a flash of pale color.
No roots have bound me.
No wind has stirred me.
You plucked me from my meadow.
To gaze, but not to keep.
At first I turned white,
Then a sweet flush of pink.
Soon turned into crimson.
Then deeper into scarlet.
And I turn darker...
to find yourself a mate..
don't think romance is all that blooms
and find your wrong too late.
Be careful who it is you trust,
don't believe all you read.
Love can really be just lust,
planted like a seed.
Before you decide to meet,
someone met online one day.
Try to be...
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...
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...
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
so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...
those who've I hurt the most,
I'm sorry my image of strength is breaking off and everyday it's getting harder to cope,
I'm sorry mom that you had to hear how desperate I am to kill myself and how I still don't believe in god,
I'm sorry dad that you're bitter because your...
for you Wyesman.. lol
Is this poetry, or something else
I once was told, but have forgot myself
If you think that it, all has to rhyme
Go read the definition, just one more time
For what I write, is not a crime
& is not perfect, all the time
Loved your words, they told the...
I'm learning now how to let go
So my smile's no longer just a show
And I don't know how long it takes
I'll bend it back before it breaks
I used to think it's all your fault
But I'm the one holding the cord
I see now I must first forgive myself
To gain back all that I...
Each and Every Night
So much do I miss you that
Each and every night as I close my eyes
My heart sees your sparkling eyes, and your smile.
So much do I want you that
Each and every night as I think of you
My heart hears your sweet whispers and your...
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...
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...
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...
Burning and writhing
I'm tearing down creation like a disease.
Before all life
There is pain unfathomable
Before me there are horrors divine
How dare it destroy me?
Will it never know that of this, I am?
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...
A river flows one way,
Blood flows many,
Water is one,
People are many,
People hide truth,
Yet people hold true,
I am nothing,
Yet I’m something,
Many ask questions,
Most of whom is purpose,
Blood is thick,
Your armor shines and glistens upon the sun
Your helmet glows brilliant gold and silver
Your face illuminates the radiance of love
Your eyes delve deep into the world and universe
Crisis and desire conflict in one spectacle
Damnation upon you and I forfeit our lives
Your halo and...
Raising up my glass
My face behind it hides
For once in my life
The ashes have been burned
A wrecking ball comes through
Where my life had turned
Rush to keep me awake
My voice and my chest
Remains a dead giveaway
Shame in my being
Am I not too old yet...
Insecurity from fear. Fear from society.
Steadily march, to the beat of conformity.
"Hail blissful ignorance!" They’re chanting with unity.
One by one, they fall prey to absurdity.
Individuality, killed off for a hungry hungry vanity.
Ideas and thoughts that lack...
the willow tree lay there to die. Abandoned, different, cold and dark, the only willow in the park. The other trees alive and fair, the willow broken sad and bare. Beneath the willow I sit to think, with all this sadness that I drink. Drinking, thinking on my own, like the...
I'd be guilty of it everyday. So, instead I'll just write this rhyme, using words I'd never say...out loud.
My spine trembles, with an unknown ache. With this ancient heart, that nothing could resemble, feeling it's own earthquake...through a dark shroud.
Retracing steps made...
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?
Oh yes I do
& to the world my thoughts, I love to spew
a poet, discovered, myself, who knew
it wasn't always, like it is now
words pouring out, like a flooded bough
i don't know when, it came to be
that with words, I decided, to make you see
& all I know, is that this is me...
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...
hoping you would roam
Making wild assumptions that this must be your home
Your perfection follows me in a silhouette
It's all I've ever wanted, everything and yet
Something isn't right, something unintentional
As when I look at you, you're two dimensional
You cannot be real...
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...
walls are caving in
I still won't give up
No, I won't give in
They try to distract me
But I'm focused on what's ahead
I'm ready to pass this test
No, I won't give in
Time and time again
They try to use lies
To take my eyes off the prize
No, I won't ever give in
