the front garden
Mimicking the bumblebees
Skinning my knees
And making mud pies with my sister
We’d laugh and fight and dig
Before they came
And took my family
Took my mother and I
Out into the fields
My mother’s naked skin cold against mine
As she cried and...
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,
for the first time, it seems so simple. I saw the world in her eyes. Her eyes that were too deep and warm to hold anything but perfection. Her skin, a warm tan on a warm beach that made every tomorrow feel like yesterday. Her smile! Those teeth that flash and dazzle and glint...
troubles of the world. The past a haunting.
Stuck inside of my F'd up mind. No one can hear me shouting.
Sleep, sleep, slumber. The Devil's got my number.
My time is up. The needle stuck. Was born to be free. But Satan lied to me.
He stole my soul for his keeping. I knew...
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
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...
The winds of time erode away
The memories of our past,
Leaving us with shadowy thoughts
That disappear too fast.
And so we cling with all our might
And try to hold them near,
All the things for which we care,
And those that we hold dear.
No matter how much we try to cling...
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...
Lies a dragon in the hills who brings you down
She's mightily black with purple eyes
Has such beauty as she sails through the skies
One glitch just may occur while she's 'round
This drop dead beauty has no sound
She swoops down and kills with such ease
She has no one...
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...
He's there waiting for the moment to attack.
Vicious rage flows over your whole body
Face turns red, you feel like strangling somebody
His pointy claws sink so deep
Thoughts won't let you even sleep
Shaking confusion settles over your mind
No good thoughts there...
by surprise,With little hands and little feet,And little mouth and eyes.I couldn’t help but wonderAnd thinking all the while,If what I saw upon her faceCould really be a smile?A fragile sight, a helpless look,And needs she can’t explain.All left for us to calculateIf...
the world should hate
hell had been discovered
When the Russians came to liberate
the white smoke had vanished
The trains had gone
Thier victims were no longer there
But the memory lived on
Most of the gas chambers destroyed
The camp leaders had fled
All that remained where the...
The Kiss... Last of the Mohicans by Trevor Jones)
They built a new runway,
Tarmac for fast tyres departure,
Up, up and away,
Pointed in your direction.
There is an arrival associated
With behaviour like this.
A less than tragic comedy,
The girl that died of a heartache passed me in the night whispering memories of youI stood to frightened to move for fear my eyes cast a lightand the darkness she drew like a cape around her shoulders.Her tears fell like jewels on the crushed lovers rulesthat you broke to bring...
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...
yet another day without you
every moment im awake
Im thinking bout you
And Im not sure
How much more
i can take
Because its only 9 am
And this pain runs so deep
Im not sure if i can
Last another day
i just want to sleep
The time away
I tell myself all the time
That you'll be...
night's passionsEscape from the outsideWarm on the insideDreams for the soul.Will hushed voicesAnswer the prescient night?Can hearts know minds,And time becomeAllied to the soul?Bring your song to the window......and know the voice of the wind.
as long as I can remember
Eclipse pain resonates rain
Every drip on my fortunate face
Facing God I forgo fate
Only oxygen still satiates
For as long as he is alone
I will bear burdens as it pours
Breathing through suffocation
I've never been so harmed
And worst still...
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...
(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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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 have to thank God
for me everything seems kind of odd.
my mind is thinking about you.
I know that it can't be us two.
but I know that one day.
it could be tomorrow or even today.
I am starting to feel like my old self.
I dont think about death.
I am optimistic about...
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
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 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 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...
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...
what I search and wait for,
and hope is soon in coming,
until reality defeats hoping
Excite my wandering mind,
challenge my mind to stay,
speak to me of joy and life,
help me see beyond strife
Tease me with your body,
make my body feel alive,
let me feel the desire burn,
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...
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...
when you wake up at 4am and its not dark but nor is it light. the cigarette smoke that contrasts off your loneliness. that colour underneath your eyes that matches the bruises on your thighs. hot coffee you forgot about drinking. having something to say but what you put out isnt...
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...
that you have in my heart has a door that holds a mysterious lock
A sigh/ a song/ a face book post can suddenly unlock it to million of tears
Time has stopped when it comes to you, because it was never existed
My tears are temporary as the feelings that occur every time this...
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
when I'm all alone
I have to take out a loan
on happiness, nothing less.
Now I don't need any muscle tone
to push this boulder to the designated zone.
Sisyphus laughs, belly laugh.
At least I'm not stuck down in Tartarus
going through bouts of disappointment
like a Saturday at...
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...
every direction a dim touch
Twin stares single breath
Even the flower that blooms
Red or grey
A fluttering butterfly
And the beating heart
Only bleeds blood
To beat life
But not love
Bearing repeating starts
Every moment is the moment you left me
