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...
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 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...
A kiss was never stolen
Which turned my burned heart blue
But in the midnight hour
When it's all said and done
Better we had each other
And created so much fun
You were part of my universe
But now you're just dust
The pieces of the alleyway
The old forgotten lust
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...
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...
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 the park I fed pigeons at every morning.
I was too emotionally attached to things that leave with the seasons.
They say my rain clouds over-watered the plants and killed them.
More time in bed, I thought, but I'm always looking for a reason.
So I gave my bread money to 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...
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
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...
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...
(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 spend every day awaiting the pain to go away.
This came just out of NOWHERE in my mind. No idea why. Was just going to post to "I am not creative" and that pops out.
It's how I feel about myself. I am completely plain in every way. My appearance is plain, I have no skills...
it’s kindness softens the crest of it’s waves
forming delicate fingers that strum upon the wires of this place
making each impulse a declaration of delight.
The voice seeps into the very walls as it speaks
giving them a radiance and a hum
that crests and calms and...
closing in, fear is holding my arm. Leading me along, is worry and doubt.
Leading me down an unfamiliar path. I reach out for help or a hand to hold. Their fingers pass through mine.
Fear grips tight upon my arm. Worry and doubt pick up their pace. Moving faster my fingers...
Music: The Greatest... Cat Power
Feel, breathe, live,
Heart beat faster,
Pulse, heat, softness and hardness,
Minds and thoughts and desire.
Leave the rest at the door,
Tonight we are going to be on the floor,
Feet first then torsos,
Entwined in meaningful...
your mind starts to creep away.
Things you used to always say, are never said.
You forget your friends,
But what's worse?
You forget your family.
That man you've loved for 50+ years, he'll be a stranger in your house.
Your children, what children?
19 grandchildren, & 1 great...
the broken and shattered pieces of me,
Finally beginning to heal,
Will I need you in the end?
If by some ill fated design,
You show your face again,
Will it cause me pain,
Or will I be perfectly fine?
if your thought has begun to fade,
if I can look at you as a stranger,
Your head in your hands,
Your cries ringing through the orchard.
The pain carried too much weight,
And that night she was gone,
Drawn away from you slowly,
Fighting for air.
Now you are filled with guilt,
And soon the blame will consume you,
forcing the air from your lungs...
begin each day;
We can only hope the path we found
Is the one where we should stay.
You can’t always judge the path,
Simply by its looks.
And you can never gain wisdom,
Just by what you read in books.
So be grateful for experience,
Whether good or bad.
For we can learn...
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...
your never alone , even in the dark and you feel your heart has fallen
and you lost your way and cant figure where to start
take my hand , take a chance ,we'll make a plan
we will , we can
Make it together through whatver comes our away
just pray , we'll have...
flooded with mistakes
Trying to run
Trying to escape
The crippling fear of the unknown
Keeps her from moving on
A loveless life
With no real hope
The calm before the storm.
She finds solace in her sadness
As the day turns into night
Her demons caress her tender heart
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...
the floor as I show it photo albums of all the times I can't forget how I was almost happy, and
you're tied up against the bedpost as I'm pleading with you to prove you love me in your eyes alone, make love to me through your gaze or you're a liar, and
the car doesn't crash in...
And he sings,
Be my baby tonight
Greater than the sum,
And he sings,
And come dance with me.
Wanting to touch,
Wishing to kiss,
Aching to see,
! thanks so much for supporting who i am and giving me so much happiness :) i'll let him remain anonymous....
this cloud of dark emotions hung over me
and cold rain blocked the happiness i couldn't see
but then like the rays of the sun, you shone through
At first, all was exploding and dying,
Imploding as it starts.
Then the corrosive winds fell upon blankness.
In rocks and valleys,
the deadening stillness vanished,
as the world became hectic, and chaotic.
Gusts burst into roars, and fury turned to rage.
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...
wherever you are in this massive lot
I send my words to the horizons, so vast and blue
I send my words to your heart, so right and true
if they are still of any importance at all
maybe they're just scrabbles on a wall
they're not Twainian
not that significant...
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?
but what are lyrics other than poetry?
by. A Demand for Proof
I remember back in the day
When we used our minds to fly away
Our hands would go and touch the sky
While the airplanes would just go and fly by
We'd run and laugh in the grass
Our voices blasted out...
would you hold me tight?
would you kiss me softly?
and tell me you love me?
if we only have right now,
will you slowly take away my pain?
would you show me all I needed to see?
would you make me happy?
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...
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...
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...
although i'm gone. Just know i'm in a better place now. Promise me won't cry even though you miss me deeply. I know you wish i was still there with you. Everytime the rain pours down it's my tears pouring over you letting you know i miss you. When the sunshines i want to to...
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
