I've known you now for sixteen days
We met out where the sparrow plays
Where golden wheat rustled and swayed
And morning sun immersed our gaze
Your flowing hair to me impressed
Upon my soul a desirous quest
To speak to you I might suggest
That all our worries we divest...
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...
when my heart was heavy
sought refuge in a place where the laughter was strange
where there were men of pestilence in their souls
but it was a place to call home
it was a place that in the cold of night remained warm
you might be frightened by the gleam in their steel shod eyes...
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...
(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
breathe the air
I should feel lucky to be alive
Yet when I'm home there's no one there
No one to kiss
No one to hug
No one to miss
No one to love
I"ve lived my life
The best that I can
I took care of my children
I've been a good man
When it's all said and done
None of it...
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...
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...
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...
images with my words
brushstrokes to show the texture
windows to my worlds
yet all i seem to do
with words upon the page
is stir up old memories
echoes from ghost songs
so i sketch and work the feelings
as paths into my soul
not as great as you think,
darker than they appear.
The evidence is hear,
if caught then deadly slum,
shivers emerge down my spine knowing...
that the dark ones will come.
The mothers are riddled
crawling with the disease
cancer grabs the deadly
the disease that never leaves...
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 stood where I'd pulled softly on her hair
And mothers' milk would flow.
I was so pale as paper waiting to be written on.
Now off on a journey imitating a life mourned.
Black hearted and jaded,
Speaking in a different tongue.
Lost without a compass,
Running trough a field of...
space to breathe
Closing off my views
Pain swells up
Trapping me again
Nowhere to go
But inside my skin
Absent of any aim
Afraid to Move
Hearts freedom Restrained
who I swear I've never seen do anything but laugh, she's tall and she's smart beautiful and strong and when someone down she tries to fix what is wrong
How does someone so perfect feel so insecure as to scare her skin with cuts and burns and still want to hurt more, how does...
by a window,
Georgian beveled glass panels,
Rainbow effect edged in the early evening light.
Blueness on your skin,
Your nakedness natural
Against the fading light
Hourglass and soft hip exponentials,
Nirvana, and obsessive desire
Right now, ecstasy, an...
Longing for her touch
She forgets while she sleeps,
Dreaming what she must
In her hours of solitude she calls out her name
Clinging to the memories that barely keep her sane
She trembles as she weeps
Begging to be found
By the same cold death
That put her world in the...
the darkness and light
Consciousness descending to take corporeal form.
A stranger looking back from a distorted reflection.
The demons that gripped the shattered soul,
Driven back by nights end
Giving angel another day to fight for redemption.
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...
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...
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...
In this night, I will be with you, as I light the candles for this special eve, my heart rejoices in the light you bring.
In this night, though we’re far apart, the feelings which consume the core of who I am, allow a place where we are free to be.
step, as the white noise of the breakers levitate my soul. The seagulls shriek their song as the sun bleeds orange and red into the low clouds.As the palm trees sway back and forth more violently, the noise of the surf increases. The daylight slowly drowns in the distant ocean...
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...
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...
her little, dark hand to the edge
there she stared and gurggled
there was "Used to be"
unseen for months
the women with the table top back
the woman with the long white hair
Used to be is her name
she used to be a lady.
this is only 1. there are others bur today...
than the trails they use to leave for us as boy scouts
as the eyes of life
watch our stories unfold
how often do they see us play the fool
yet possess the king
how often do they feel our sorrow
and envy our ecstasy
do they smile at our happiness
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...
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...
until it's just almost too much
A sparkle shines in the eye,
no more need to be shy
Hands roam and explore,
clothes begin to hit the floor
Need and desire building,
our pleasure needs releasing
Bodies beautifully entwined,
dancing to a mutual grind
The world outside fades away...
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...
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?
To find a release–
Is what I need.
A way to bring myself back to reality,
Distorted images of confusion and chaos.
The past blurred with the tears of tomorrow,
Nothing to be heard but the endless noises of joy.
Joy for what?
What is there to be so happy about?
I am being...
cursed cup of false paradise
I'm intoxicated with a bitterness,
Left with nothing
The aftertaste of emptiness
I basked in pure seduction
Between silken sheets of deceit
You vowed the frailest words to me
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...
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,
that isn't meant to be?
Imprisoning yourself for someone when you know you could be free
It's like hoping for rain when you're standing in the desert
Trying to grasp what fell apart when you know you could do better
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...
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
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
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
that I could be anything
The "anything" I chose was nothing
I am wasted life and wasted intelligence
To all around me, I am a hindrance.
I take, never give; I hurt, never heal.
My toxic behavior reflects how I feel.
you immediately judge me? Have I done something to offend you? Is it the power in my walk, is it the pride in my heart that shines through me, the grace in my strides that you cause too feel this uncertainty. Why is it when I walk down the street, you immediately judge me?
For the same old question.
Will I ever be satisfied,
With anything less than perfection?
Can I jump the hurdles,
Of life's imperfect flow?
Will I contain my pride enough,
To enjoy the developing show?
The standard I've set for myself,
Cannot been reached by me...
Stopped, the waning of daylight
We reached this point, darkening time,
As the sun ebbed and flows again,
Longer days and shorter nights.
The waxing of the light.
It starts all over again,
And I think...
Gripping, gliding, exploding
milky magma screaming, begging to blame
pushing its way
into the summoning darkness
seeking the source of the impoverishment
collapsed flesh entombing
the inexorable melting result of collision
cracking into the vulnerable trust of want
