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,
Left me there willing to die.
My wings are broken and soakin with blood.
Knowing I wouldn't have Gods heavenly love.
Now I'm on earth all alone.
Knowing that I'll never coming back home.
A fallen angel that made a mistake.
Wishing to take back but it was too late.
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
Saying this can't be true
The day that I lost you
How could I disengage
As my heart filled with rage
Blaming only myself
With my life on the shelf
Offering my last day
Hoping that you could stay
But this did not prevail
As no life is for sale
So I sat there and wept...
you to become my greatest secret
the one I will be longing to spit out with every chance
and if you succumb to this selfish request, by any chance,
you'll be the only secret I will allow my self to tell
to yell on the top of my lungs and be a bragging ***** about it
to show my...
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...
We don't have a reason or a right
It breaks my heart to it's core
Our egos tryin to settle some score
I say this and you say that
Why battle ..when we can in fact..
Be peaceful with one another
And be simply kind to each other
Take my hand ..let us walk if you will
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...
Her coat she would clean till it shined just like new
Her day was spent sleeping, as much as she could
Yet, nothing would pass her constant review
Especially the dogs in the old neighborhood
Her nemesis the bloodhound was old and sprue
Famous was he for his...
It's within us all, not just laying around.
It's there where your heart is and it's behind your eyes.
That's why we feel hope can be lost, when one of us cries.
Take care of your heart, catch your tears. Then you'll have hope throughout your years.
shining on you.
The moon that's smiling at me
Is the same moon that's smiling at you.
We breathe the same air.
We drink the same water.
Let's get up and walk again
Let's keep up strength and maintain progress.
It's not alright
But it's ok :-)
Because we think we can...
Do they enhance you?
Do they diminish you?
Do they improve you?
Do they suppress you?
Do they help you become a better version of yourself?
As we relax into each other, we are finding a new beauty. Finding that giving each other more freedom makes the world a more...
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...
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...
I don't want no love
I ain't got the time for that
If love try to talk to me
I'll look the other way
I don't want no love
I ain't got the time for that
If love plays my favorite song
I'll just laugh and move on
I don't want no love
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 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...
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...
Running in a world of white mist
Nothing but the dirt trail ahead
The cold bites my bones and I clench my fists
I should've stayed in bed
This world consumes me
Clouds curl around my feet
Impossible to escape as it rises to my knees
The fresh air smells ever...
I'm the outcast you dehumanized
I'm the college student you want no part of
I'm the loner who you forgot about
I'm the phoenix that always rises from the ashes
I'm the lone wolf that never needed a pack
I'm the prototype that defeated the stereotype
I'm the black...
Amongst the chaos,
The butterfly path or
The erratic form of waves
Cresting upon a watery canvas,
A lighthouse illuminating a fog,
The nose of a ship pushing
Through the foam.
The undulating roll of the...
m kinda freaking out right now
Because I don?t know who?s in my house
I?m seeing and hearing all these negative things
And I?ve BEEN wanting him out
You don?t love me, you don?t care
I?m not in your future
You remaining in my home
Is pure torture
Admit it, this isn?t working...
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 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...
Talking in circles.
Of fantastical theory of why,
Invention after the facts,
We connect the dots
To make sense of what really are
But labelled effective,
Due to seemingly therapeutic effects,
Sunny spells and scattered showers...
passing, may he rest in peace. For those who may not know who that is, he played Spock in Star Trek.
There was a man
He told me to be logical
And so I studied
There was a man
He showed me what it means to be selfless
And so I did my best to be like him
There was a man he...
A friend you never were to me
I regret giving you the attention you NEVER deserved
I gave to you what I can't give to myself
Memories fade away, I want to forget it
No, Alzheimer's I'm not welcoming you
Hopeless I remain, faceless I have became
A lack of identity remains...
as they dictate,
never give in to their hate.
Always fight against the tricksters plots of fun,
always move on when the deeds have been done.
Seldom will they assist,
Why won't they get the gist.
Seldom do they protect,
I know, for I have felt the neglect.
Remember those who...
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...
Makes me stop and think
But sometimes it doesn't go by fast enough
Especially when things are getting rough
If you only knew
What I go through
Then maybe you can understand
But maybe all of this is part of a bigger plan
Just hold on one day longer
All of this...
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...
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...
thought it possible
To mix the polarised opposites
Of two completely separate concepts,
But work with me here.
It's not such a crazy idea,
Psychology and mathematics
Storage of energy, of goodwill,
Of compromise, of love...
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 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...
and have published a book of poems in the last year... I still fear sharing my work with people. Whether they will hate it, or steal it, or not understand it... So we'll see. I hope to share something at least.
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...
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...
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 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?
(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...
