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,
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
it to my face
I wont let you see these tears
That i cry everyday
You destroy my confidence
You shout at me
You tell me you don't love me
You constantly make me weak
You break me everyday
Whe you lie to my face
I try to tell myself to be strong
But the pain wont go away
shivers as cold fingers strokes through her hair
She's at a café at the end of an unknown street
where the only sounds are the echoes of invisible feet
A shadowy bird glued to the sky
lonely girl remembers how it was to fly
She's a neon butterfly with no wings...
so many things.
A protector, a mentor and friend.
She gives you guidance till you know your way,
And nurtures from beginning to end.
She provides you with meals from your very first bite,
And feeds you till you’re on your own.
She teaches you values like honesty and trust...
The old man sat on his porch each day,
As he rocked away in his chair.
And the flag that he always proudly flew,
Was waving ripples in the air.
The flag he flew was ragged now,
Having used it through the years,
It held some memories from his past,
And even held some tears...
I can't breathe,
I can't see.
This fire's burning,
It's burning proud.
No rules to follow anymore:
It doesn't matter-
I have my freedom.
I don't even need to rhyme.
(All of the...

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...
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...
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...
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...

(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
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...
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...
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...
cant talk about you though 7 years its been
It hurts so much
But i hide the pain away
The cuts stay unseen
Your beautiful face
Stuck in a wooden frame
Behind that glass
How am i still sane
Loosing you nearly killed me
Im surprised I'm still here
To walk another day...
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...
that takes you whole. That clash of insanity that carries you to the edge of a cliff. It’s in those last few moments that you realize that this was your destiny. Being able to have freedom was never a part of it. There comes a time when you question everything. You try your...
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...

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

I'm trapped between pages and underneath words. your beauty, your love, your warmth is a breath of fresh air to my lungs. It breathes new life into a story so cold and bitter. One that thought it was nearing it's end. Every part of me, every ounce of strength and love belongs to...
Talk like one too,
I am one, I know,
But you tell me I'm cool,
And knowing this pains me so,
When I **** up it's me who you'll sue,
I am a toxic person,
I've known my whole life,
I am a bomb ticking away,
And I know every day it worsens,
Though people insist they'll stay, they...
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...
I wanted to show him off, take him with me, show the world he is mine. I wanted everyone to stare and wonder where you could find someone like him. I loved him the way you love your first own car. He was not perfect or the best looking guy but I loved that. I was addicted to his...
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
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
yet another human walking past me. More days go by and the sun keeps playing hide and seek. Like it is toying with me.
Oh how life is toying with me, playing with my sense of right and wrong.
Oh please my world, why won't you be gentle?
I don't even know how to describe beauty...

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?
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...
And thought were important to keep.
Were nothing more than superficial,
And faded away in our sleep.
Our looks is not what’s important,
Although taking care of our self is not a crime,
Some things just don’t last forever,
Erased by the passage of time.
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...
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...
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
No time to recover in between
Or time to climb up from the lows
But still I will power through
Fighting all the way to the end
Living, breathing, pure adrenaline
Yet staying as sweet as the morning dew
This is what I live for, to simply defend
Using whatever I can to...
since I saw you last,
And I almost have come to believe
That I'm no longer at the mercy of my pointless crush,
No longer my heart do I deceive.
I love you as a friend,
(I've been telling myself),
but that's as far as it goes.
I tell myself I am now immune
to that which caused...
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...
With the village children praying
Did you hear them calling out your name
For to save them from the slaying
Did you watch the day turn into night
With the village children weeping
Did you hear them calling out your name
As they saw death softly creeping
Did you watch...
