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...
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...
Gazing almost reluctantly out from behind dark lashes
Hiding behind a small smile and a busy pretense
While attempting to see behind what stands before me
Beyond what lies in plain sight
Trying to see underneath the careful exterior that you present
Wondering what is...
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...

Building a playlist of songs.
Choosing wisely, music for?
A soundtrack to the film about
Nocturnal vertical and horizontal super bliss
Whatever happened to the good old fashioned kiss.
Well that's how it starts.
My mouth all over your body,
First your ears...
random thoughts that may or may not make sense. Oh well, I like writing, let's do it.
Such tired, tainted symbolism
Toxic being so willingly consumed
Self-appreciation so selfishly misconstrued
Why does it have to be this way?
Why does it have to be this way?
Why does it have to...
personal so please be kind. Its in free verse and its about my anxiety disorder.
It crashes over me;
Live an ice cold wave,
It comes over me.
Like a forest caught in a blaze.
Hot, cold, hot, cold
will it ever end?
The winds change and I'm fine.
The winds change and I'm...
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...
when the thought of taking my blade everywhere I go occurs.
It's strange when the scars on my wrist slowly fade but it's normal for me when they are replaced.
It's strange how people think my life is perfect and I honk it's not a life at all.
It's not strange how people are...
(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
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
but it is neither here nor there.
It is but only a dream, one in which can not be attained.
The perfect exit, the perfect plan, to enter a world of much better things.
The way out is not far near, and it will be a time of celebration, for the journey will be rendered dear.
like? It's a slow fire that burns
under the pan as the bitter whine
simmers with butter on the surface.
Flowers to thicken the rudeness
in your flavor. I can smell it now
with it's homespun heaviness hung
awkwardly in the air. Poor Rabbit,
you had your lucky...
Luminous in the window,
Blue and grey,
The day is over,
And it's yours.
The first touch of the weekend hue
Autumn scenes across your sacrum,
The tilt of your pelvis,
The curves of your hourglass figure,
Your hip to waist...
don't know how to close the distance from here to there
It seems that I've found the road to nowhere
And I think I've been here once before
I recognize a few stars in this sky
I think I know that face in the moon
Things look so familiar, but at a distance
Because I don't know...
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...
as the next
All the same,
Only slight differences
All look alike
How they live like that,
They all form into one
Performing as one
A whole world
Separated by one thing
Undetectable by you or...
Pain stands behind your eyes
Rising with the tears.
Emotions sit on your lips.
All of it I know.
You're always there,
Along with me.
I've always known
What you'll do next.
Until the mirror smashes.
both know I can't be enough for you
So I don't blame you for forgetting
And I understand why you fell for other girls
And it's okay that you left even though you promised that you wouldn't
Just know I told myself that I would wait for you
That I would make sure you were...
That they will see...
See that I can't hear?
Why does it matter anyway?
Of what they may think...
Think what they will
They don't know me anyway
My name, and my smile is what,
They really need to know anyway
What am I really afraid of?
If they will talk about me after this
ten thousand layers of steel and concrete
where infinite darkness fall
and time moves slowly or not at all
I threw away far and beyond
like hopes, wishes, and coins into a pond
let it sink in tears and drown with it, fear
it will remain there but not here...
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...
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'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...
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...
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...
Can there be one without all three?
Our future seems so hard to see..
Can it be you only lust for me, you don't really see me. You see a fantasy.
In a moment, you can own it, you can stop the lies and your fake alibi. You don't really need me, just a Fuсk, that's all it can...
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,
I'm too small to fit in the shopping mall carousel's steampunk rocket ship.
I found this out the hard way.
I ended up doing some counting as I didn't quite have the freedom to do anything else.
5 girls of likely, the same age, laughing at my burning red embarrassment,
maths class today;
You burn holes in my head every time your words crawl their way into my skull
And I'm sorry for being so quiet around you when my thoughts are screaming at me to kiss you
I wish you could hear my muttered hellos and my heartbeat
- I wish you knew
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 the sun rose in the sky.
I tried to pick my self up and stand,
But I could only try.
I couldn’t remember what was wrong,
I had passed out from the pain,
I had no memory of the metal shards,
The flew right through my brain.
My arms were lying at my side,
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...
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...
is a careless companion
his tarnished love is a thin man with hungry eyes
loved only by her mad mad mind
with a clean beauty to her that shines
the sour bread is bitter wine
his own madness stifled his tongue
painting its masterpiece of literary eloquence in utter silence...
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 try to take a breath
but it stops short.
it catches high up in my chest
there is nothing left to be done.
like a flower in winter
i grow cold and shrivel.
my heart beats one last time
then no more...
