of sewage, it gets in my mouth and ears. The stench is overpowering. I keep swimming. Anxiety overtakes me. Will I survive the sewage? Sometimes I ache from swimming. It gets real thick and chunky at times. Other times its real watery, and I breeze through it. Sometimes the...
The train would soon be here
There was no ambiguity
There was no murkiness
There was no mistaking it
The train was coming nearer
There was no turning back
The train was bearing down upon us
The train was rapidly approaching
The was no possible way out now
You ripped it to shreds
Thats what happened
The day that you left
It burned so hot
But you didn't care
You laughed in my face
You said you'd be there
But you left me
Alone and cold
You left me here
With no one to hold
To wrap me up
Keep me warm at night
Shelter my heart...
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...
seas of disjointed thought fragments, making sense out of nonsense, and nonsense out of remains of linear thought. A world I visit even in my waking hours. Sometimes I'm puzzled by the intricacy of nonsense; interesting, but rather meaningless. Its a place that is refreshing...
the day will turn dark, then the leafs on the trees leave like a theif scattered thru the park, Reminiscing with my heart this is what your reading if my soul turned to art this is the searching for Sanitys edge in the dark, this is an echoing whisper dancing in a canyon of...
(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
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...
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...
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 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...
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...
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
why did you come here --
is it to take me tonight?
The face of an angel
but with eyes as deep as the grave,
a never ending hole
leading to a world
I can see within you there lives pain,
bags you yet to touch ---
Outside a shield surrounds you;
please, I ask...
they are plenty.
The sorrows of life are but few;
But the sorrows just take all our energy,
No matter the good that we knew.
We don’t always take time to be happy,
It just seems too easy to be sad.
We too often punish for goodness,
And praise those who want to be bad.
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...
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...
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...
is crazy. The meat of existence is hazy.We all delude ourselves, no matter how deep one delves. No matter how smart one is, all this can't be summed in a quiz. How do things amount? You think you've got it figured out. Its still just YOUR understanding, however far its expanding...
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,
No matter what i do
You wont like me anyway
You pick on me
Because im smaller than you
My heart cant take the hurt
This im sure is true
You ripped it out
Tore it to shreds
Burned it to ashes
Stomped on it again
Stabbed me in the back
Rubbed my hurt in my face
Help you through struggles, heartbreak and strife
I'll always be here when you need to cry
Shower you with love and affection until those cheeks turn dry
Love unconditional, my true love
You give me me such strength to rise above
Youll own my heart even after I grow old and...
Then will try to translate.
in noi e intorno a noi,
carezza i nostri cuori,
rendici come vuoi.
Che regni l'Armonia
in ogni nostro intento
come da sempre accade
nel Giorno senza tempo.
La gioia degli amici
sia nostro nutrimento;
l'abbraccio coi nemici
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...
dripping out my arms, falling apart
Screaming within, love, hate and fire
Come wash away my sins, show me desire
Take my hand , lead me through the dark,
Show me how to live again, while I express my pain through art
Walking through the flames, burning like it's hell, cast away...
Mountain evening, fading glory of a day long past,
Heather, purple in the sea of green mountain top grass,
Lovers entwined in winds
Chilling, light from the southwest,
Wide arms and the head I love
Buried in my arms and chest.
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...
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...
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...
All hope is gone. All happiness is gone. All friends are gone. All money is gone. All freedom is gone. All families are gone. All care is gone. All kindness is gone. All opportunities are gone. All peace is gone. All health is gone. All sunny days are gone. All heavens is...
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
You we're smiling,
No longer in pain.
I couldn't understand why,
Or why it had to be this way,
As you made your way to the clouds,
I held on to your lifeless body and cried, I could finally say I've loved and I've lost, till this day I still wonder what your doing, and...
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...
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
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?
and its time to enter it's strong fortified walls , that room which we built together will be ready , and we can lay our desires to rest upon each others bodies and express our long awaited passions beneath cool sheets and soft pillows and embrace as the sun sets and the waves...
Dragged down below, bleeding in the dirt...
Eyes full of hate, heart cold as ice
Room so silent you could hear the mice
Silent sighs fill the air
Face full of beauty they say but I say where?
Frozen thoughts of the past
How much longer will I last.
Chained up love...
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...
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...
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...
but the fear of losing u is too great to bare. I just want you to be near, so i can whisper sweet things in your ear and tell you things only you can hear. Put my hands around your waist you think i just want a taste,but what i want is to be your dear and forever feel your grace...
