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...
April 7, 2014) Are you ready for the beginning? When times will be spinning. Making you feel dizzy. Everyday you'll be sleepy. Monsters said that I can put battery acid in your eyes. You'll wake up blind. Do worry, you won't be fine. Sheep's will be counting your sleep. And that...
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,
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
your brash words are nothing but air,
and still we lie.
you pull and you tug,
trying to trip me with the rug,
your lies are your demise,
and one day I will rise,
above it all we are champions,
but still we fall,
fall like shattered glass,
broken upon contact.
and every word...
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...
Blurring your vision,
Leaving cold smears and stains across the floor.
Your hands reach to feel,
To find the entry or exit,
The point from which the pain holds its core.
Wounds visible in their depth,
In their crimson contrast to snow white porcelain skin.
They are mended...
Leaving a path of crimson and green.
The inky sky silent as the stars illuminate,
Lighting the colours that glisten on the crest of the waves.
My hands long to reach across the golden sand,
Touch the corners of your smile,
Etch you to my skin like an eternal tattoo,
Keep you in...
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...
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
! As captain toad embarks on a brand new adventure. His vessel is as unseaworthy as his dreams, and although his legs were made for land, his heart seeks islands far beyond the scope of his horizon...But he's quick to catch the tide, as on its sweeping swell he's swept to warmer...
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?
Quiet is the wait.
One wish, one dream,
Two voices searching,
Three little words.
Dark is the sky,
Lonely is the night,
Quiet is the wait.
You only know,
And we have hope,
I can only wish.
Dark is the sky,
Lonely is the night,
Quiet is the wait.

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
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...
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...
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
2012) Sneaky Kate. Sneaky Kate. Stealing cake (stealing cake) from the cake store for her twin daughters birthday, of course. She can't afford (can't afford) not even a dollar. She lost her job and now she steals (now she steals) and she burglarize (burglarize). Sneaky Kate...

and threw a stone into the water.
I watched the stone drop and concentric circles spread out from it.
The stone was solid. Though it sank, it was centered, and the circles were only the mist of sadness and despair drifting away.
The stone grew. The depth of the water breathed...
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...
December 16, 2014) The carpet was plagued with hair and crumps that were left on the floor, days ago. The carpet moved towards me and grabbed my feet. It peeled off some of my rough brown akin and blood was oozing from within. Then the other corner of the floor was moving faster...
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...
Often feel appreciated
Or strongly disliked
Appreciated when it was conquered
Hated when envy
Love is such a valuable object
Anytime we lose fear
The only difference with the precious
Him we do sail in heaven
Stupid and cursed are the Men
Who does not love as their...
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...
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...

The grizzly is bare. Run for your life, its coming right here. The grizzly is bare. Brown and furry. Giant and scary. The grizzly is bare. Bare enough to tear you up. The grizzly is bare. If you don't hurry, good luck. The grizzly is bare. The scary, bare...
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 don't remember you,
But I can pretend
For a moment or two.
Our souls spent their eternity
Being dashed upon a wall of white.
I know you were there, certainly,
But if they knew, the others might
Have erased you.
If they knew
They'd take you
Away from me. They'd leave me in
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...
2012) Hold me. What time is is it? Hold me. Don't know what time it is? Hold me. Are you unlocked from your cage? Hold me. And brought into the other level of life. Hold me. Seeing and hearing things. Hold me. Everything looks like a picture painting. Hold me. Heart thumping...
2012) When the lights go off, eyes appear in the dark. Have no clue what they are? But I know danger. I'm no stranger to the paranormal. If your not like me, please don't panic, you're in danger. Green alley under your feet. As we watch you and times approve and make you feel...
(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 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...

Everyone hates you. They like to see you hurt and abused. Everyone just can't leave you alone. You can't stand people so you spend your days, lonesome. Its impossible for you to be at bliss. And its mainly because you're always pissed. No smiles for you, never...

I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself

but once again,
Elections aren’t far away.
The candidates seem to be everywhere,
As they practice what to say.
They will promise us some brighter days,
And each will promise more;
But those of us that have been around,
Have seen it all before.
The promises made have a...

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 speak,to adventure and to...
