Sometimes occasions come our way,
Inspiring memories good and bad.
The occasion that is now close at hand,
Brings me memories of my dad.
The things he taught me have stayed in place,
And have become a map for me to tread.
As he told me about the things in...
You take one side
And he takes the other
Ripping my heart in half
Blood soaking through the carpet
My body, laying
Broken and deadened
Just like my screams
How sweet is the wine
But my liver cries out
How much must it take
For my mind to forget?
A blade rips apart my skin
As children do when they meet a stranger
How would you know
If you close your eyes to the beauties
This world has to offer
How would you know
If you never try
How would you know
If you close your heart
And just wait to be dead
How would you know
If you just stand in one...
with no exit
to find no end
scream and shout
no one cares to listen
drop to your knees
pound the ground
hang your head
drooping like a dying flower
who lives in shadows
there may be no exit
and lead me.
until your heart desire.
until all my senses are on fire.
I'll please you,
and you'll please me.
You'll be my king,
and I'll be your queen.
Our rule will be like no other,
because our love is forever.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
when the brain knows the truth
it sees the good in everything
no matter how broken
no matter how evil
no matter how much you want to leave
it is your anchor
it weighs you down
although its beat slows
it doesn't know time
sometimes you catch...
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...
be a thing of the past.
Seems I might leave you (unwillingly)
when I thought you would be first.
But then the question begs,
Will I even feel like continuing the journey?
Maybe I'll just lay by the side of the road,
and wait for death to find me.
See, without you to ride with...
It's blurry, everything's spinning
Things out of proportion
Can't see straight anymore
Paranoia is all you feel
Shiver down your spine
Everything has been lies
Can't think straight
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 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...
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...
and all creative people out there. And mostly to th poetry writers tonight I am sorry! I know what heart and soul goes into creating form our passion and the chance we take sharing with the world something that is a spirtual and phyisical part of who we are?
trying to make the silhouette you left
on the right side of the mattress disappear
i still see your smile every day i lie awake beside it
and i don't blame you for never loving me
i never loved me either
or how i learned to live in silence
or how i can't see past my...
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...
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...
My face as you read this you'll cry too because it's true in my life
I had try to understand mom
Why you hurt me inside
Why you don't love me like you use too
Why you took me out of your life
For good I was your first born child
You brought into this world
Laden with passion
Hastening to care
It's new yet so crude
These devouring thoughts of you.
I'm not one to stoop.
To feelings so stooge
Like fire it burns
Like water it cleanses
Deep balm so soothing
It feels like I'm soaring
Stop! Stop! tempest wrath
I don't want...
so she could read them
Dear mom :
If you rejected me out of your life this time I won't come back or give you another chance mama I promise you that so if you you really want to be in my life you'll door me,
Write to me and prove it to me
Alright I am counting on you mama...
i didnt see your pain.
The trust you showed to one and all a fake used for their gain.
I can't forgive not seeing you each and every day.
My wingman always, my blood you are, i search for you as i pray.
I cant stop the rage inside me as people just dont learn.
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...
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...
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...
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
Heroes birthed and then undone,
Epic sunsets and crashing seas,
Dirty tears and broken pleas.
Stern miners painted in coal,
Glimpses of our fragile soul,
framed families around the tree,
Infant faces yet to be.
Dusty wagons headed west,
Little kids in Sunday’s best...
may choose to roam the earth
but I choose to fly
Leaving everything behind
The ever powerful wind
further fueling my speed
Nothing weighs me down
Every feather grows lighter
as I go higher and higher
I feel no regrets as I go further and further
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?
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
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...
through your hair
a hopeful heart
fire crackling in the hearth
embers mimicking fireflies
music of wilderness
music of silence
alone by choice
you are not
for the fairies are near
and they are calling for...
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...
those days have slipped
from me now
... and I wait
to know it all
where I came from
where I'm going
how will I get there
and yet I know the truth
but I battle with the
blasphemy of thought
for who could ever entertain
he was anything more than merely
Broken record always set to repeat
In the painting of my fantasy world,
I'll watch you die by the stroke of my hand
Suffocate you until violet fills your lips,
Forcing you to hear my farewell wish
Whisper to me that sweet melody,
Bass and rhythm that control my breathing
...the weight of your tongue....the volume of your seductive thoughtsLouder than a radios songClearer than a cloudless dayYour invitations...to take you and be with you...to spend all my resourceshunting you down.......till I capture your heartI leave kingdoms without a second...
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...
hot summer days
Now it always feels like winter
Since the parting of our ways
Time used to pass so quickly
Now the nights go slowly by
Sat all alone in the moonlight
Where no one can see me cry
I think of how your love got lost
When we could have had it all
My world was full...
withering bodies like autumn leaves
crumbling at one touch
age is consuming
like death isn’t enough
nothing is ever enough
gotta sacrifice a little
to keep breathing
to keep that ancient heart beating
blackhole sucking you in
light burning out
and her super hero
but something was stirring up inside her
was it fear?
I don’t need you"
"what about all we’ve been through"
pointing down the street
two forces not meant to part
The lady I worked for
Doesn't understand it...
She suggested abuse
From my comments...
It was humorous truth
Fun with her innocence;
But I can't go back
Even, to be me
Or tell her of how she
Works in my fantasies...
Let me be a part
of any sadness
That touches you
Share your laughter
Share your smiles
Your tales of all the things
that warm your heart
Let me hear
Say listen to what I have to say
When my arm curls around you
and we are on the cusp
Of Filing our...
(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
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
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...
