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...
spoke in a lonely room,
"No call for ale I hear?
The Pilgrim stands as still as a tomb,
for a murderous beast roams near."
The late patrol rushed in the door,
"Stand us a round," they cried.
Youth boasted, "We will kill the beast."
Yet in his youth, he died.
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
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...
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’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,
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
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...
(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
I swear to God,
I will be dear to you.
I owe you,
Because I know you
Its my easiness,
You took as my weakness
Take it easy,
Don't try to be cheezy
I am not a fool.
Don't use me as a tool,
You can just walk away,
But I just wanna tell you,
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...
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...
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...
beckons outside my window
Tapping with a glimpse of sunlight.
Promising warming rays
...I remember when first my heart skipped
And I would race out the door
With renewed anticipation
Only to find
Wind burned heart
come along with us?
Don’t know where we will go
Don’t know yet where we will stay
Could be this layby or that parking bay
One thing that is certain is that the time will be gay
We could sit by the sea
Supping a cup of tea
Or by the motorway
Just passing time of 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...
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...
from my body
But people keep staring at me oddly
It seems that you are forever destined to be there
Does anyone even care?
Do you think back on that night?
When things reached their height
I tried so hard to fight
You kept on until it was light
The tears fell like rain
I have to...
The crab’s in
And the money rests in my pocket
The sun goes down on the end of an era
For next year I won’t be here
I’m going on to pastures new
I’ll be watching my boys as they do
The job I’ve done for many years
I hope that the advice I’ve given
This very night for me,
Alas I know not what it means.
I walk I walk…. the wandering me.
The brook it rises above its banks,
Water roars as far as you see.
Amidst the chaos and flotsam still.
I swim I swim…. the wandering me.
The falcon soars in search of its prey...
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...
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 the paddles slash,
Against salty waters,
Yet the sharks swim quietly through.
The dim lights flash,
For one last time,
And lies divide from truth.
And bands collide,
In waging war,
'Till kingdoms fall in blue.
And they see the Child,
In robes of gray,
For it is when the...
Longing for release
Dancing beneath a winters moon
Words are meaningless
Tonight I see the truth
The holes in the hopes
The never audible yes
Only attracted to the ropes
Another of life's sick tests
Injustice, it settles
Just like mist from a rain on a hot muggy...
To the depths of the sea,
It matters not what you say,
For I am, and only, me.
Their mouths shut yet by chance,
I know I cannot be free.
I see the blood on my hands,
And, oh, the rage it brings me!
As I lay down her head,
Pale and motionless on my knees,
For eternal in bed,
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...
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 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
remnants of what it used to be. Soaked in a puddle on the concrete. Becoming the collective soul of one. Rather than individuals. The teardrop shapes became one. Only to be recycled, to become those quick little sky tears once again.
And they're wailing a hurting song
They cry out in pain with each breath that I take
And my hips and my knees sing along
My fingers pick out the melody
Each one plays a note of its own
My shoulders and ankles bang out the bass
Sending vibrations to each of my bones...
tes mots voyage comme le vent
Les rêves en moi se sont éteints
Je ne crois plus en mon destin
La peine en moi s'enflamme
Ciblant directement mon âme
Jaillissant du plus profond de mon être
Personne ne voit, je ne le laisse paraître
Accablé par une douleur vive...
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 have to concentrate.
This is important, this poem.
A poem about poetry.
I have to do this, I CAN do this.
Oh, look, a butterfly!
I love butterflies, so pretty..so..
Wait. Concentrate, darn it!
Ok, this poem...here we go..
"I think that I shall never see..."
Mucking up all my practice
And by now I think you'd know
The danger in your words
Aimed at the wrong heart
What is it you want from me?
Or don't you even know?
I dumped every drop I had left
Spilling it on the ground
The daily wonders...
And you are been laid down in a 6ft hole
When you body starts to fade away
And your memories are the things that stays
You feel like a dead, a true dead
But when you are alive and find no one cares
You want someone, but can't find to share
When your heart longs for hope to...
that I know your there
I see you in the morning, a little bird that knows your there
I see you in my mirror, a face I wish to kiss
I see you in my dreams, your always there
I see you in my heart, beating inside of here
I see you everywhere
that is how I know.... I love you
When you are feeling weak
The voice of courage
And the quiet calm
That wraps around you like a balm
You are more than you think
You're the light in my dark
My walk in the park
You give me that spark
To carry on when all is lost
No matter what the cost
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...
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...
as they stand along the docks.
First class Children,
With their knitted vest's and socks.
People flee to waters side,
to witness man made's beast.
Hundreds to the thousands,
all standing at her feet.
People Cheer and people cry,
as their loved ones set sail.
when I see you
you get me
I enjoy our friendship
I can't see my life with out you.
. your family
you make me happy
hearing your handsome voice
hugging you close
your lips so sweet
your touch on my back
makes me smile.
