as you planted me in the earth.
"Grow!'" you said dutifully as you watered my roots.
"Grow!" you demanded as you stood over me, blocking the sunlight.
"Grow!" you said angrily as you walked past me to focus your attention elsewhere.
"Grow!" you said mournfully as I withered...
You say you are my friend but you never have my back
Rude harsh and to the point is just part of your act
You pick away my flaws and then you attack
I'm not so damn perfect myself
But you have never walked in my shoes
You think you are about something, but I have some...
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
It bemuses me..
Doesn't amuse me.
I find it mundane..
Are you do vane to think that my world should revolve around you?
I might offend because you can't comprehend in that small mind that I actually just don't care.
I just think some peeps are pathetic...
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 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...
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...
that lake, that you admire so well
That pretty little face is a reflection from hell
Get over yourself, Its not about you
This damn big lake has other fish too
You are very pretty, this I can say
But like the other fish, just swim away
Out of my life is a place for you
meaning to write my thoughts for you,
My young sons and daughters,
Despite what I write,
It's hard to avoid
A nostalgic discourse.
Love and the passing of time.
What would I be without you?
What definition of this flawed imperfect self
Would I choose?
What purpose unfounded...
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 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...
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 rain comes falling down .
As my teardrops hit my pillow, they slowly sink and drown.
The lightening streaks the sky...casting shadows from above,
the pain inside my heart, tears apart this dying love.
The thunder rocks and roars,
sending shivers down my spine...
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...
who always told me I should write a song, well I haven't done that haha, but I have written a few poems, and I would like to share one with you guys. This poem is quite obvious on the subject, and it's really personal, I've recently told my friends about my heartbreak even...
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 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 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...
time we're apart feels longer
The clock ticks and the cold breeze flows
As for me,I know where my heart glows
Covering the smile you cause me to make
It's this nervousness that I must break
These hidden feelings that I can't hide anymore
As I walk up the path that lead to...
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...
A diversion from this life of mine
People come and go
I just watch and enjoy the show
People are busy, so much to see
I want not to be them, just leave me be
They come and they go, from were I do not know
A tow tuck a pickup a mini van too
People are shopping buying...
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...
by murky, fertile soil
the nursery for a growth that was at once
a flowering garden
a verdant forest
a steaming jungle
but always the contours conformed to your shape.
A shell of beauty, life and lust.
While it grew you directed it, drove it
Used its fragrant petals to entice...
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...
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...
" spoon says.
Why those are forks,
Stay away from them spoon.
Spoon ignores his spoon friend,
He walks over to talk.
"Hey spoon, we dont want you here."
Says a fork with a bend.
A shy fork girl sneaks a wink
She waves her hand to him
As spoon walks away.
All spoon can do is...
Seeing patterns in chaos
Rather than chaos in patterns,
Seeing status and purpose
Beyond butterfly flight.
Under any other jurisdiction,
Where majority does not rule.
Bent all out of shape?
Thinking of a square,
But being a circle
(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
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,
Undefined, floating ship at sea
Rising to the west,
Contours exponentially curved
Nirvana in the glow before night,
Long shadows, headlands,
Shades of grey and charcoal black,
Drown in fading light,
Civil, nautical and astronomical twilight.
There, alone by...
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...
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'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...
Then it can be removed
And in the ocean thrown
I need a magic spell
To weave into my soul
Wrapping it in thread
Making it feel whole
I need a magic spell
To whisper in my ear
And tell me all the beautiful words
My body longs to hear
I need a magic spell
To freeze 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...
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...
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
Music Max Richter
Wind blowing trough an open window,
Curtains, ghosts in the air,
Dancing in slow motion,
Dust over footsteps
The frontal lobe dependent
On time gone by,
Future, presently passing
Wading a sea and tide in ebb.
Hard to see...
Something worth so much
Something worth so much
That which I have yet to feel
Yet I feel her love
As you are mine, I am yours
Like faded pieces of stained glass
We are joined in holy matrimony
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?
