with artless strokes, caressed.
Nor for a fervid whisper of desire,
Not withstanding all the hunger that my heart possessed,
For that the ink I spilt was not inspired.
Not for one kiss should I ever trade my passion, my art,
Nor seek such lucrative returns
From the blind...
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...
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...
of good love~ here to give service and love~~ I am the child of my parents~ nurtured by their character and care~ sent away at an early age~ to look for knowledge and learning~~ I am the chubby nerdy child~ that got made fun of~ called out a math oddity~ praised by some, mocked...
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...
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...
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
for you is a song for me
I see red inside my head
From memories corroding dead
Take me to insanity
Take me to insanity
Dark clouds rising with nicotine
Drains the pain right through my veins
Here we go once again
Black Clouds rising Inside my head
It feels like a dream
now a ghost town
Old visions creep
There is no sound
I cannot sleep
This Too Shall Fade
It's time to lay in my bed
Since it's already been made
Inside, I feel so dead
You're so near, yet so far
Restlessness at its finest
This Too Shall Fade
One night there...
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...
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?
Hearts can be in many colors,
Blood bleeds in many ways,
Still my heart lingers more,
Because I am searching for a home,
We all need a home,
We all need a place to be,
A place where others lay,
Laying as a pack on we shall go,
Moonlight skies wake me up,
Keeps my mind racing...
because you are no longer a part of it
My world will have a thousand more possibilities and options because you are not the center
But that doesn't matter right now
because I would rather be absolutely ******* miserable, and be with you
Then be alone
and thats the whole...
long day of seeing nothing but clouds
with dancing free on my mind
with dancing itching my feet
i want joy
i want to feel the wind in my hair
but i got a long day here
in the hot weeds
wont you ease my headache
wont you ease my weary mind
tell me the news
tell me whats a...
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
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...
it's the start of a new day, a glass is broken, no words are spoken, the man stands and strives, starring at the knives, the memory of you rests inside, they had only cried, the sorrow remains and the shadows strength gains, no light to be seen, wishing it was all just a dream...
of hope falls from my eyes.
poems dont rhyme and paintings are in greys,
the warmth of the sun replaced by the grave.
a burned and blackened wasteland stretches to the shore,
the blighted oceans that i once adored.
love so cold, a world of no life,
a life ruined and bitter...
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
Ovals of amber smiling back
And your soft flowing colour
I wish to grab you up
Bury myself in your richness
Roll in your existence shouting
But I am an adult now
And the thrall of mediocrity
Has imprisoned me
In my bland partitioned office
The rustle of bills in my...
I'm not here to be loved
It whispers in my ear
A lesson that repeats
As a weight that defeats
While binding me in place
Alone on quiet streets
In my own masquerade
The lies of my charade
I pretend to be more
In hopes sorrow can fade
I acknowledge the pain
As I stand...
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...
A center would ruin it.
Of every crack
Of every chip
Revealing its heart
From beneath the surface
There is no need for a center.
I would not belong.
The air is young.
The sun is fresh.
The clouds are new.
But the entire time
They've watched the cracks
And the entire time

because the former is a lot like the latter.
An innocent villain to the guilty victim
With these, the wise opinions of a mad hatter.
You were special, ironically leading the way,
abandoning normality and also me.
Vanishing from sight and as I'm left leader less
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
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
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,
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...
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...

and of happiness and of anger and of malice and of everything else that the stars could have possibly made up of

Some settle in my veins, blooming into lillies

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

a serenading streamIn a tapestry bound by threads of fancy,A tangled weave of tangled dreams.The tall grass, swept by gentle rhythmStirred by an impulsive kiss,Became the whisper of a sighResponsive to my hand's caressAnd, as we lay, my eyes were drawnAbove to cloudless phthalo...
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...
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...
a minuscule fragment that exists in a void of space we call our existence. Plagued by the debt to pay reverence to an unknown variable that deems my worth with my devout troth, to which I cannot deny but instead do so more as to mindlessly oblige. I am minuscule, my worth is...
as you know who you are
You are the person that talks with me, and hails from very far
You were one of the very first people, that I met here when I was new
Several accounts later, I'm thankful to still be talking with you
At first I was quite stubborn, and sometimes even rude...
as you rest your head
Against my chest. Can you hear a storm approaching?
That's my heart! It rages as your warm breath
Sweeps against the broad cage
That barely can contain it. But have no fear.
It is a heart that cannot draw, 'though it would bleed
Should your cheek forsake it...
(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...
