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
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...
back into my dreams.
Like an unwanted ghost
Haunting my nights
Haunting my dreams.
You use others to do your bidding.
With promises of love and affection.
They say you miss me
But I know that's not true,
Because when I needed you most
I no longer desire 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...
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
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...
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...
but knows only your name !
never a day without arousing you, but we lack earnestness!!
we pretend in such a way as if you are our impute !!!
but still you are great,never left us unaccompanied !!!
Dressed in black
Our shirts tear stained
On looking a hurtful sight
Watching you go down
How is it so hard to believe
This is it, its the end of your round
As you get lower
The boys start to shout
Slapping their chests
Stamping their feet on the ground
that I'm going insane
That what I say is crazy, wrong, and in vain
I never meant to offend you, but thought I would be weak
To see the signs in front of me, yet turn the other cheek
And when I spoke, and I could tell the war I waged would not end well
I apologized and I began to...
Her nails painted pink,
Eyes rusted shut.
They say the distance killed her.
The coroner had a hard time
Her heart had grown too swollen
then dried too quick.
I wish I had told her at
the time that
happiness doesn’t last.
But instead she went...
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
was not fair and could not be so that I was suffering and he was not. Woe was me. Self pity was me. But I realise that all the incessant suffering was worth it. It was worth it, for now I know that I am not a flower free to be plucked and discarded, nor will I wither away at the...
You have eyes and yet you are blind.
Past is past
Yet you look behind.
You love yet you tear
Stop breaking my mind.
History is studied so it wont be repeated
Yet you choose to forget i end up depleted.
My lungs are dying from the screams you choose not to hear.
to me he speaks
The gentleness of his solitude
Grief and contentment
in his hands lie
Transparencies of love lost
barefaced in his eyes
Unyeilding strength he lends
in veiled moonlit glow
and ardent adjurations
melt slowly in his snow
In passing my...
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
The only difference between us
Is how we both have seen us
Some days the birds will fly
Or crash into the sky
They don't need to be justified
Just use your wings
By whatever it means
Leave it all behind you
If that's what you need
I'm sick of watching
And waiting to pass...
Silent without a sound
But you see
Grim he wasn't found
Grim is a man
Made of skulls and bones
He does his work
On his own
Touching a person
Taking him with him
To that place
Where they make a decision
Heaven or hell
Go straight up
Never go down
Grim takes away...
That I may experience their deaths
Over, and over, until mine eyes awaken
For though i may sleep,
I shall know no rest
For ever, and ever...
Let your vengeance course through me
Thy rage inflict weeping sores upon the soul
That i may live once more,
And in light of day, devour...
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...
hands I held today,Brought to my face a smile.And any troubles I may have had,Left me for a while.Even though you are short right now,In emotions you are tall.Possessing a great big growing heart,In a body that is small.I watched you try to make a choice,As your mind began to...
to be me. Let me become everybody, so I will be able to feel good about my sanity. I feel I am blind, bound by shackles. “Let me go!” What has a hold of me? All I desire is love, something I can observe in others. This is why I hate to see my reflection; because it’s a...
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...
mind when you
Go on your tirades
You yell and scream
You accuse me of breaking
Promises to change.
You act as if I'm a monster.
I never cheated on you.
I never turned my back on you
I always stood by you
And when I say I am here for you
You attack me and shut me out.
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...
Slander be more than lies
Could statues be more than stone
A king be worth more than his throne
They think when it doesn't hurt
We mean that it's much worse
Shoot us in the chest again
One more day if we pretend
You'll be seeing headlines
It's all we ever dreamed
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
thought I was
Turns out I have a breaking point
I guess everyone does
Hers is the stress
Of pleasing everyone
His is the pain
Of loosing a loved one
Mine is different
It doesn't seem right
But mine is myself
It's pretty Black and white
I am broken down
(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 ice isn’t enough Frustration, anger, fear, Failure… Sitting alone in the cold Wanting a different pain I found it Below my fingertips But stop Lo and Behold Stop He loves you Stop. He. Loves. You. Stop! Shivering, crying, screaming...
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...
Coldness strikes, a vicious debate.
Judgmental world, of past no more,
Dying perspective, losing allure.
Trouble sleeping, painful awake,
Desiring more, make no mistake.
Twisted path to journey's end,
Skeletons closet, makes no amends.
Passion for living, questioning dead...
I thought I knew you better
Spending a life time together.
Only to come and realize
You are a stranger to me.
Have you learned nothing?
You're in dark, turbulent waters now.
Not knowing which star to follow
The Northern Star had guided you
To safer and calm seas.
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...
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...
Memories of your written words
I smile and turn to face my empty bed
I close my eyes and see you there
So handsome i see you so clear
Your secret smile just for me
I want to fly away with you,
To a world that doesn't fit us here.
A whole new world that just
You and I exist...
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,
Check out my strong verbs!
Dig my quotation marks, they're loaded with detailed jargon.
Say, you have some great exclamation points,
Can I be your indirect object?
You may accuse me of using crude superlatives, suffice it to say,
My language is unbiased and suitable for...
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...
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...
