Sometimes the words draw me to themselves. These ghosts appear around me.
They tell me their truths, reasons and injustices.
They let the living. These that are loved to not be alone.
They beg the borrower to the lender. To love once more
embrace against a backlit stream
Swollen passages of minds wistful ways
Kindles dark hearts on dying byways
Hasten my heart against you
Beating of internal guilt
Wishful dose of silence
Beats the truth of my innocence
If loves Mercy beneath quilted desire
Loathes my heart to...
the madness of sorrow
Heartache of the lost
Beyond the veiled glaze
Peruse my blood a thousand glares
Insanities wretched fools shall remain
Beyond loves bewildered flat
Fools and the madness
Conspired to the last
Amidst the demons reich
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...
so true. My love on a pedestal echoing out for thee. Whose hollow voices I have no love to give. Feeds the fire of Crimson embers unturned. The love from the love'd. Bending back against the ticking of the death clock. The reaper waits for you....
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...
that you may hear
Fisherman to the ocean my line is free
Flow forth from me
Hold me internally
Hold what's true
Let me drown inside of you
Against my heart I know it's wrong
I don't care my love
I don't care!
It's where I belong,
Take these words and hold them
(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
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 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 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...
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 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...
As the fire raging inside us as we embrace
Discovering each others without inhibition
Only driven by our mutual passion
Indulging ourselves in the sweetest flavor
Of the taste of our sensuous lips flirting for more
Amazing sugar rush felt in our mouth
The love i had i can no longer find.
Im tired of feeling sad and hurt.
You take me for granted and make me feel like dirt.
It may seem like a harmless flirt.
Look in my eyes and see all the hurt.
Im ready to throw it all away.
I cant go on like this another day.
I feel so lost...
Cold coffee on the table.
The morning light filters.
She watches as it filters.
Her tired body refuses to move.
So much to do, but she can't seem to move.
She clutches at her cup, now empty.
She can't help feeling so tired, so empty.
Sleep has evaded her once...
soul in stage of fright
Shivering under fierce blowing wind
breeze of the ocean kissing my skin
Hulled by the shadows of my imagination
Where everything is set into motion
Stars above shinning down with grace
On this part of land called the mistery place
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...
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
suddenly remembered your smile again
Wandering completely feeling lost
I had to come back to you at all cost
Sudden invasion of loneliness
Taken over my soul I must confess
How to get back to you my love
As I'm stuck here on my way above
The sight of your beautiful face
season’s ready to change again,
The leaves have gone from orange to brown.
They gave their all to sustain the tree,
And now are resting on the ground.
The relationship between leaf and tree,
Is not a complicated one at all.
The leaf devotes itself unto the tree,
For all I could say has been said.
A vessel empty of originality,
Mental static swirling cottony
And white, white as evacuated eyes.
Uninhabited shells of forlorn seas.
There is an image to visionless sight
But the very point would be subjective.
And there are so many of us...
I have to wonder why.
An errand to complete,
but for that you came over yourself?
Another thing you check on while there,
but again...just an excuse?
Sounds like something I might do...
Run an errand to where you work...just to see you.
Sure, it was something I "needed" to...
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,
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...
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
Estranged to our own life set into the motion
Constantly trying to make them see
The perception of us they have ain't really
Growing up too fast in a world so cold
Forgotten by those who weren't supposed
Deception we could see in their eyes
Sometimes even pure...
calm oceans of eternity,
forsaken memories captured in golden clouds.
Mellow beats of obscuring artifacts.
Mysteries unravelled of love and romance.
Burnt caresses caring till curing chimes.
Breezy, sunlight sailing through the dawn’s air.
As planets chirp and gallop through...
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...
Nightmared h☺☺kers hawking their wares
On empty mind corners
Clad in startling symbols
Such as flying crocs and bull
I renounce it all as I greedily consume it
The rancid oxygen burning my throat
Wearing my heart like a (pimp)
Wears out his welcome
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...
my very spirit is drowning
Not in sadness, not in joy
A muffled scream, a violent shout,
brain and heart are pounding
The smallest slight, whether actual
or only perceived through enveloping red
I can speak plain
I seek to maim
Avoid the glare or become dead
that was pure
Trust was easily given
Hope eternal was then driven.
Now, the clouds have rolled in
Daydreams have turned to nightmares
A once, whole heart is broken
Memories, caresses never spoken
The road I had followed has faded
Which path am I meant to travel?
Am I to go...
Darkness cloaking it's a sin,
Longing for warmth and light,
Flowery arms reaching for the sky ,
No compassion they wither and die ,
Colouring leaves tightly gripping the trees,
Soon to fall in the sharp winter breeze,
Colours are ranging,
Drama that I...
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...
somewhere in between
the nightmare and the dream,
the conflict and the solution,
the failure and the fruition.
There is a storm.
There are alternating waves
of indecision and shaky resolve.
Confusion ebbs and flows.
The wind howls,
furiously in need of attention.
I try not to loose hope
I cant help the fact
That ill never ever get you back
Sometimes i cant help but smile
Ill think about the good things for a while
I know you'll be walking this road with me
Mile after mile
I think about all those good times
I remember all the times...
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...
