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,
Until I lost you
It's not your fault,
but it was mine
I pushed you too far away
Heard that I went off the deep end
You could say I took the dive
But I did anything I ever could
to get you off my mind.
Do I regret it? No
I love to feel the rush
Every single high I got...
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...
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...
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?
The flame lit up the glistening blade.
Her towel fell from her body,
on the ground it laid.
A drop of moisture from her hair,
curved her upwards chest.
The breeze crept through the window,
stood up the focus of her breast.
She embraced the blade in her hand,
lyed on the silk...
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...
And bumblebees are in a rush, they have no time for tears.
Down by the brook a meadowlark strikes up a happy tune.
The sun is low a ere long will make way for the moon.
The deer are in the meadow, a family with two fawns.
The squirrels are barking from the trees...
as an exercise to learn about how NOT to write. Gimme your thoughts on this. It's either really terrible, or actually kind of entertaining.
"I'm on fire"
Jehovah, it was hot as lava!
If Zeus were a taste tester,
He'd wash that pepper down,
With a refreshing Starbucks java...
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
(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
of a thousand suns
The lighting that slices through
The inky darkness
The thunder that shatters a veil of silence
The rain that reverberates off the infinite world below
The moonlight that reflect from iridescent pools of silver murky liquid
The soft hypnotic murmurs of...
Just met an angel?
Heathen goddesses are unlikely
Candidates to judge
Being weighed down by
The weight of all their vulgar
Offerings of earthly gold
But in the case of one angel
The goddess of desire met,
She knew its divinity by
The fact that it made her aware
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
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
Songs of love you sing
Into the open blue
Songs of the sun
Chirp as you run
Don't go hiding
And in that sky along you soar
With spirits high and rising more
A gentle flutter, my heart doth stutter
Of the fantastic...
aged, features seem out of place
How in Hell did such a young heart
Get trapped in the body of this old fart?
I can’t be that old.
Life has passed me by?
What happened to me?
Where did the time fly?
Youth sees old, wrinkled and greyed
Appearances count, of that I’m afraid...
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...
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...
just because its not in sync with mines doesn't make it any less legit.
i just wish you'd at least took the time and have walked with me for just a bit.
i wouldn't of promised you anything more than a sunrise vibrantly lit.
your hand in mines and a sunrise vibrantly lit.
tears and heart over canvas of wonder
A caravan of memories travel the roads of my tired mind then pause when you smile before rolling again
I perceive your image dancing behind the noisy dust and tumble of its rhythm
When it passes you are gone
And my canvas is nothing...
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...
Beautiful Bluebirds echoing sweetly chirping away. Feel the cool breezes flow through our bodies. We're holding our arms together, whispering & cherishing softly words to ourselves. Reminiscing the fond memories & the love we have for each other. Our everlasting friendship will...
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...
The happy moments we had
And yet it all went so bad
Yet the joyous smile soon fades
It's replaced by cutting blades
Wishing for what could have been
There's too much conflict within
It's a normal reaction
In moments of distraction
But I know that this sadness
usually the mark of someone wondering and thinking of existence lately. Such a way to embrace the reality of which you live in but it's not without the dogs of destiny looking at you in an eerie way, the sirens howl and lights flash revealing something of a lostness. A...
before it starts,
If my hopes rip me to shreds,
I’d be glad to be dead.
It’s always winter in my heart.
Nothing grows, nothing lives,
Stillness above and below,
The blanket of snow my skin
And shadows cast by crooked trees,
I’m so numb I couldn’t...
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...
Led towards periodic obsessions
Leading to nowheres
And stranger nobodies
When misgivings are taken for truths
Without realizing the clever sleuths
Ghosts slip under the phone booths
For a call that rings and never ends
Like congealed clouds of conflicting vapor...
so green and soft,
its ends were covered with tiny little
holes where bugs had been feeding upon them.
But it's beauty was still present. I
It's lax body was so fine it made the
world even more glistening beautiful with its
alluring shape. This leaf was something else.
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...
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
Nothing left of joy,
only pain in sight
Your soul feels so old
And your heart's been sold
The pain that's within,
destroys even gold
Feel a slave to fate
All you do is wait
And anything good,
simply comes too late
There's a beast within
It's your only kin
In this cold...
You're hanging, dangling
From a small silver thread.
With the monsters within
You just want to give in.
Now imagine that's you
Every day, every hour
Like a wilting flower.
You try to tell your dad
And you try to tell your...
that may never be known,
mental disturbance turns a heart back to stone.
Create memories alone in your head,
holding you hostage as you lay in your bed.
Fits of despair have blinded your sight,
awaken to find you are losing the fight.
Rays of sunlight lead the way,
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...
One need not seek it, for it is inevitable
Perhaps never constant, yet always an unyielding teacher
It penetrates the entire being,
demands much from the soul,
taxes the intellect,
launches the heart on a seesaw journey
for you and I
We always made sure that we would see the same night sky
We would look up above, staring into the twilight
Believing that together our future was so bright
But suddenly oneday we had lost sight of our love
As we refused to stop so we could glance up above
Vietnam. Young GI American soldiers, deported, fought & died. Into the raging jungle forest battlefields of the Vietnam War. The sorrow loss of my natural parents, I've never knew. A faded memories I can not remembered. A torn tragic old country I left behind so many years ago...
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...
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...
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 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...
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...
