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,
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...
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 my blade
ill.start.with sum tiny ones
theyll heal in a day.
then ill cut deeper
following my veins
blood running free
selfish as i am
thimking of nothing
me and my razor
best friends we are
freeing the pain of another day
all this depression
i cant cope
this is why...
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
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
because they have taxed me
It never ends a cycle who's path never bends
I guess a slave we will always be?
I see pain
police terrorizing in the streets
It will always come like the Florida rain
Children of the victims I hear them, they weep
Handcuffing a bleeding dead...
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?
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...
Each time I sleep, my dreams
are filled with blood of
the innocence and dammed.
My sight clouded with shadows of
the past, I don’t know
where to turn, and I keep
running even though I’m going
to a cliff I can not
stop and I don’t know
who to ask...
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...
They told me I take life too seriously, so I made them laugh.
They tried to say I had a learning disability,
I haven't had a B, in over 5 years, and I take advanced classes.
They said I couldn't sing, I play guitar, write my own music, (& sing) and I've been asked if I could be...
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...
working last night
turn the smoldering log
add the kindling
bring the embers up to fire
a history is developed
by living in the present
by reliving yesterday
dance to unseen
joys and sorrows
music from living life
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...
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...
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...
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...
Something simple about you,
About you I would like to know,
To know the secrets of your own,
Your own I will hold in place,
In place of pieces you've left behind,
Left behind the loneliness of your soul.
Your soul the darkness reveals,
Darkness reveals truth,
longed for your touch
Where were you
I wanted to give up
You should've been there
To shelter my heart
From this world full of sin
Where do i begin
She gets beaten
And pushed around
He gets shoved
And kicked to the ground
A little life
Didn't even get to start
A stupid act
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...
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 you jump off
Knowing it will end your life
Looking around at your surroundings, to see the beautiful lights
You hear the wind rushing past your ears
Like angels, whispering you'll be fine
You feel the air hold your body as you fall more
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...

It's April and the murmur of the earth
Awakening resonates underfoot.
The furze gorse is growing and blooming,
On lowlands and along the ridges
Of mountain tracks and back roads
High up to tree line on heather filled mountains,
the rapture of words is short lived
and passes by like a swift summer rain
filled with glorious life yet to be lived
with promise of tomorrows never ending sunshine
all in the briefest of moments
captured by the heart like a photograph
distilled joy in the frame of...
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 the dark harsh weather.
In the bracken and heather.
In the long howling night.
Their howl last up to the first light.
Their eyes as bright as lasers.
Their teeth as sharp as razors.
Fixing their prey with an icy glare,
Their body covered in warm hair...
(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
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...
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...
No fear or shame instilled in me
Exploration of smiles and soft laughter
Bright lights and naps I wonder what's after
Discovering my feet they crawl and walk
My mouth unlimited it can actually talk
My hands move things more than ever before
Wanting to do so much...
smile and face of stubble.
It's been hard, I can't find motion
Little hope and lost devotion.
I'm here in a silent state,
my pen is moving to explain my fate.
It's my doing this dreary mood,
I'll find solace in excess food.
Sadness of heart and mind,
Hope for love, hope for...
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
