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
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
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...
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...
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...
Tumbling words, fumbling hands,
breath caught in the very top of the chest and held
like the escaping air would banish the moment forever.
The night outgrown has a low babble to it.
Rasping friction, oxygen exploding in candle flames
quick bursts of motion traveling along...
" 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...
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...
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
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,
The silence of when I was waiting to see my therapist, scared out of my mind, hiding the burns I left on my skin with the sleeves of my hoodie, thinking 'I shouldn't be here'.
The silence between my mom and I when I came out to her, wanting to run away and feeling my eyes...
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?
And peel my pale shoulder blades.
My tongue is a field filled with lies,
Waiting to split me open and rot my beating heart,
Shelter me I beg,
In the velvet of your palms,
Cooling my wretched scars.
Every time we ****** nothing would heal and nothing would grow, lost in forest...
looking anywhere but eye to eye
feigning a casualness to the request.
The truth was it wasn’t casual
The quiet seemed almost to make the walls fall away
Giving too much running room to fears about ourselves
grown large and feral and rageful at their entrapment...
when I shock myself turning on the light in my room, my heart stops a tad bit, and I smile because it gives me weird little giddy feelings in my stomach. A little bit of electricity like that is safe, okay, adventurous even. But when I let you closer, into my thoughts, my...
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 dreams had been too deep.
The darkness surrounds me like a glove.
The sun was still asleep.
The morning air was damp and cool.
The grass was wet with dew.
I sat and drank my morning Joe,
But my thoughts were those of you.
This time of day is always quiet...
your skin your smell as familiar as mine,
your voice your laugh like distant memories,
like a once loved song or a half remembered dream.
But dear prince hold on, don't storm my gates.
My halls are empty of all but pain.
Dear prince be patient of this fallen queen,
and fantasies show at the edges,
Stark faces and foils,
The belle’s en pointe,
And but for our toils
We struggle with want,
Tapping three times,
But failing to knock.
Now traipsing circles our sweet, inviolate,
Grant us a piece of your strife;
We’ll wreathe thee in scarlet...
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...
. This is me being raw before I explode.
Leave me in peace.
How can you expect me to like you when you unknowingly fractured my own ability to stand and be confident in how I was designed to be?
I love you but I don't like you.
I need you at a healthy distance or I...
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...
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...
Like a psychedelic canvas
With your essence drawing me in
Creating art in my own mind
To appreciate the value
Of a priceless hanging portrait
Held on by just a thread to you
Yet from your abstract undertone
The impression that I've received
Is though you are 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...
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...
and buckled black shoes
Whirling flowers in a circumference round strolling parents
Amidst a landscape of desolation's last fling
A few holdout leaves cling grimly in death to the branches
Above the scattered ruins of their brethren on the ground below
The wind sighs Winter's...
To settle in and feast.
I tried to fight it with my sword,
Just to kill the beast.
Great care it takes to fight the beast,
And certainly great skill.
It tries to make you think it’s dead,
By lying quiet and still.
It moves around and hides away,
Like a thief into the...
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...
The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space,
Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth
Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air;
Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day,
And men forgot their passions in the dread
The way we used to be
The love and empathy
The dream went on
Going day by day
But what hurts is what we never got to say
Goodbye my family
My brothers and sisters
Let the remnants of the past rest where they lay
Left in the shadows of...
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!)

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...
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
