I wanted to show him off, take him with me, show the world he is mine. I wanted everyone to stare and wonder where you could find someone like him. I loved him the way you love your first own car. He was not perfect or the best looking guy but I loved that. I was addicted to his...
And thought were important to keep.
Were nothing more than superficial,
And faded away in our sleep.
Our looks is not what’s important,
Although taking care of our self is not a crime,
Some things just don’t last forever,
Erased by the passage of time.
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...
Talk like one too,
I am one, I know,
But you tell me I'm cool,
And knowing this pains me so,
When I **** up it's me who you'll sue,
I am a toxic person,
I've known my whole life,
I am a bomb ticking away,
And I know every day it worsens,
Though people insist they'll stay, they...
so ingrained it plagues all the nations
One concerning life and living
Which focuses not on taking
But on giving
We, the masters of this world
Are doomed to watch as it unfurls
Not out of punishment, not out of spite
But for the ignorance of what is right
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...
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...
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
(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
that takes you whole. That clash of insanity that carries you to the edge of a cliff. It’s in those last few moments that you realize that this was your destiny. Being able to have freedom was never a part of it. There comes a time when you question everything. You try your...
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...
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...
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...
I'm trapped between pages and underneath words. your beauty, your love, your warmth is a breath of fresh air to my lungs. It breathes new life into a story so cold and bitter. One that thought it was nearing it's end. Every part of me, every ounce of strength and love belongs to...
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...
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
it to my face
I wont let you see these tears
That i cry everyday
You destroy my confidence
You shout at me
You tell me you don't love me
You constantly make me weak
You break me everyday
Whe you lie to my face
I try to tell myself to be strong
But the pain wont go away
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
Returning in a car from a day of adventure,
An Odyssey with blue skies
And white clouds
Cotton-balling their way in every selfie,
Three is not a crowd,
With a cloud the perspective grows,
The floor would become
The old man sat on his porch each day,
As he rocked away in his chair.
And the flag that he always proudly flew,
Was waving ripples in the air.
The flag he flew was ragged now,
Having used it through the years,
It held some memories from his past,
And even held some tears...
so many things.
A protector, a mentor and friend.
She gives you guidance till you know your way,
And nurtures from beginning to end.
She provides you with meals from your very first bite,
And feeds you till you’re on your own.
She teaches you values like honesty and trust...
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...
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...
since i last saw him
Years since i accost him last.
I used to give him my time,
my love and my heart.
Never once did he welcome,
did he even acknowledge me.
But that was years ago.
That was many moons ago.
Too many for my to count.
Too many for you to remember
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?
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
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...
No time to recover in between
Or time to climb up from the lows
But still I will power through
Fighting all the way to the end
Living, breathing, pure adrenaline
Yet staying as sweet as the morning dew
This is what I live for, to simply defend
Using whatever I can to...

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 human walking past me. More days go by and the sun keeps playing hide and seek. Like it is toying with me.
Oh how life is toying with me, playing with my sense of right and wrong.
Oh please my world, why won't you be gentle?
I don't even know how to describe beauty...
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...
distracted by scenery and questions of life
my eyes stumble upon the one that one day
one day I hope becomes my wife.
Her eyes were two deep ponds
waiting for my soul to dive
so that there would be no other bonds
where my attention would thrive.
Dark brown locks of hair...
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...
With the village children praying
Did you hear them calling out your name
For to save them from the slaying
Did you watch the day turn into night
With the village children weeping
Did you hear them calling out your name
As they saw death softly creeping
Did you watch...
cant talk about you though 7 years its been
It hurts so much
But i hide the pain away
The cuts stay unseen
Your beautiful face
Stuck in a wooden frame
Behind that glass
How am i still sane
Loosing you nearly killed me
Im surprised I'm still here
To walk another day...
