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...
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
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...
A kiss was never stolen
Which turned my burned heart blue
But in the midnight hour
When it's all said and done
Better we had each other
And created so much fun
You were part of my universe
But now you're just dust
The pieces of the alleyway
The old forgotten lust
as a tribute
to the man that was my father as well as many
other father’s like him. However many do not
have that positive role model so I had to write something
for them as well. Here goes.
My father stood on a street corner,
Selling crack and meth.
He drank most days...
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
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...
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 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
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...
(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
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...
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...
I thought it was me
I was only five
Go to sleep to gunfire
Police never come
Crack ho's never tire
And I know I'm done
My uncle runs guns
My momma's doin time
I have to mule drugs
And I am only nine
They say I can choose
The future is mine
What do I have to 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...
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...
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...
smoothing the breeze into a sleepy lover’s caress
encumbering the wispy strands through which limbs pass
until all is slow and gauzy like a dream.
This silken air was born in buzzing twilight
Gently protecting all who ventured into it in the dark
blunting the edges of a sharp...
knows that you are so beautiful
I held you too close to me, close enough to make me want to leave I still feel scars from me that you may not see
I wish we could fix what was broke
So instead of sending broken flowers I'll send you roses
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...
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 spend every day awaiting the pain to go away.
This came just out of NOWHERE in my mind. No idea why. Was just going to post to "I am not creative" and that pops out.
It's how I feel about myself. I am completely plain in every way. My appearance is plain, I have no skills...
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...
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
deleting things )
Looking out my window, something lately I often do
Just passing time and drinking beer and feeling very blue
Feeling like a lonely voyeur, as the day creeps by so very slow
Like the jet planes high up in the clouds, people quickly come and go
I watch the...
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...
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...
Well here goes let me know what you think.
Every night brings a new day
Every moment brings a new memory
Every breath brings life
And every lesson learned should be remembered
Hills will come in my path
But it's up to me on how to get past it
Whether it be the long way or the...
although i'm gone. Just know i'm in a better place now. Promise me won't cry even though you miss me deeply. I know you wish i was still there with you. Everytime the rain pours down it's my tears pouring over you letting you know i miss you. When the sunshines i want to to...
but you don't know that I'm wise. If you ever listened to me, you'd see through my eyes. If you didn't judge my history, I wouldn't have to be in disguise. If you let me finish my sentence, you would see that this monster has a beautiful heart inside." -Beautiful Monster...
home. Knowing what will come if he makes contact. Yet he must see her talk to her, feel her. His heart heavy as he watches her from the shadows. He slips in selfishly only to disappear again. Only because he knows the destructive world he lives in and the creatures within it. He...
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...
the broken and shattered pieces of me,
Finally beginning to heal,
Will I need you in the end?
If by some ill fated design,
You show your face again,
Will it cause me pain,
Or will I be perfectly fine?
if your thought has begun to fade,
if I can look at you as a stranger,
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
telling yourself its for the best,
and that to speak to me,
could end so much.
I wonder if you think of me,
and ask what happened,
if I am still the one you love,
or if I am just someone in the background
would you hold me tight?
would you kiss me softly?
and tell me you love me?
if we only have right now,
will you slowly take away my pain?
would you show me all I needed to see?
would you make me happy?
! thanks so much for supporting who i am and giving me so much happiness :) i'll let him remain anonymous....
this cloud of dark emotions hung over me
and cold rain blocked the happiness i couldn't see
but then like the rays of the sun, you shone through
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...
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...
Those peeps don't get my empathy.
Is it so hard to get yourself some education? Learn how to respect those without relation.
I call it laziness, the craziness you spew, such ignorance.
One can't be so arrogant to think they know everything.
Someone once said a wise man knows...
