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...
(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
The outside me is not afraid
Not full of pain,or even shamed
I smile and all those ignorant fools believe
Of course nothing could be wrong with me
My eyes are dry,I do not shed tears
For that gift was taken away from me dear
I laugh and talk and play along
Keep on existing...

The remnants of my pain.
They cover my mind,
Wherever darkness reigns
Scratches on paper,
Pencil in hand.
Of a much better land.
By the worlds lies.
Blood now pools at my side,
As I fade into the black.
Roses are dull
violates are dying,
you say we dont care
but yet i am crying.
just fades away,
im left behind
we want you to stay.
In my eyes
im holding back tears,
scared and in pain
from all the past years.
We all care alot
we dont want you to go,
i try and stop you...
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...
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...
In a way that feels as if love never existed before us...
It was created just for us, you and I alone…
My heart beats only for you…
In a rhythm that only you will understand...
Only you can hear this my love…
You are like a dream within a dream…
So close but...
entirely at peace
But calmer than usual
A profuse feeling of worry fills my being
On this moonlit night
As I lay in bed
Plans of what must be done
Thoughts of how it should be done
Anxiety of meeting up to my own standards & society's expectations
The immense feeling...
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...
so familiar with
Sitting on the front porch looking up, always looking up
Wishing on stars and dreaming of places far away
The cool breeze on my face tossles my hair
Sounds of nature that I first hear one by one
An owl nearby but not seen
Crickets and frogs playing their...
faces going around
I set my eyes in the sky
I set my eyes
shapes that clouds make
I see a peacock
I see a mountain
I see an angel
Suddenly a tap on car door, and I see a real angel
Yes my kid is there wanting to get in :)
that she crys
Till she sleeps everynight
Tears in her eyes
But she stays
And her eyes
Hide the pain
And her lies
Hides her rain
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.bitter sweet symphony , like me and you...
Take my hand, for more than just this dance , the journey will be worth it, just take the chance.
Forever weel shine under our moonlit sky , there is no one out there , like you and I
You a soothing song, and I your every tune...
Mentally and emotionally,
I wish for the haze,
Beckon it's return,
To be detached from everything,
Pain, disappointment, anger,
Energy and effort,
Spent only to change masks,
Oh, how I wish for the haze,
I plead for it's relief.
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...
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...
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
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
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...
show me a beautiful nightmare.
Breath me the of secret to your sorrows,
play my mind like a violin;
show me a haunting tomorrow.
Follow me into the deepest depths
of the darkness.
Watch me dance to a hollowing wind,
come take my hand,
while we waltz in the depths of...
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...
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
Why you actin' like what I want
amounts to games, and ain't about nothin'?
Granted, I need much less than I want
But is that cause for you to front?
I think not, so stop frontin'.
I oft wonder why [or how] you bring me to places
we've never even been?
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...
that I met on YouTube. She's an amazing singer and I always write poems to compliment her. But once I made a bad joke and I really want to apologize, would this be okay:
Loveliest voice of musical beauty,
Chiming like a bell.
Sing she with much alacrity,
And wrought a Heaven...
your first mothers and fathers fought and died,
primitive lives cut short.

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-"
Deaden thy waggling tongue fair maid
Such babble thou speweth forth! Her mumblings fade.

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...
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...
after night, I lay down in my bed... Starting to be curious
Then I think about all the problems, the passive-aggressiveness, and the fights. I start to get a little furious
Then I contemplate the times we smiled at each other, watched a movie, and laughed
I then want to just...
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...
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...

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?
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...
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...
you are in every beat of my heart
You are pulsing through in a rhythm only you know
Always under my skin touching every single piece of me
In my thoughts, in my dreams, in my lonely waking hours
I feel you, but you are gone, you are not here with me
I am left alone with nothing...
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
it is time to awaken from this slumber
I no longer crave your love lies, for I only covet the absolute truth now
I will begin again, I will love again, I will find someone deserving of my gift
You have left your mark on my soul, but it is a scar that will fade in time
Wondering about the love ill find,
But most importantly,
I tried to die,
I use to think, love is a lie,
And hoping to love, i can say goodbye,
But before i did,
I found a love inside my heart that always hid,
It opened up when i have found,
