the willow tree lay there to die. Abandoned, different, cold and dark, the only willow in the park. The other trees alive and fair, the willow broken sad and bare. Beneath the willow I sit to think, with all this sadness that I drink. Drinking, thinking on my own, like 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...
an endless well
But I don't remember, how I fell
It seemed like forever, but I finally hit bottom
Was thinking these thoughts, when i shouldn't have thought em'
Sitting there hopeless, when I heard "rejoice"
But it was more like her thoughts,only in my own voice
I'm not gonna...
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...
Your armor shines and glistens upon the sun
Your helmet glows brilliant gold and silver
Your face illuminates the radiance of love
Your eyes delve deep into the world and universe
Crisis and desire conflict in one spectacle
Damnation upon you and I forfeit our lives
Your halo and...
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...
Raising up my glass
My face behind it hides
For once in my life
The ashes have been burned
A wrecking ball comes through
Where my life had turned
Rush to keep me awake
My voice and my chest
Remains a dead giveaway
Shame in my being
Am I not too old yet...
Less then a whisper
Not a sound
Less than steam
from a cup
Less than hot
yet rising up.
Less than eyes
That never stare
Less a kiss
Of breathy air.
Am I less
When you're around?
Or am I more
Just never found.
Remembering my failures
There's no one around
As I renew myself
And delve into my thoughts
No distractions to deter me
Yet no company for levity
For all things there is a season
And this is mine for solitude
Paying penance to myself
Learning to simply be
Waiting for the...
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...
A river flows one way,
Blood flows many,
Water is one,
People are many,
People hide truth,
Yet people hold true,
I am nothing,
Yet I’m something,
Many ask questions,
Most of whom is purpose,
Blood is thick,
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...
Insecurity from fear. Fear from society.
Steadily march, to the beat of conformity.
"Hail blissful ignorance!" They’re chanting with unity.
One by one, they fall prey to absurdity.
Individuality, killed off for a hungry hungry vanity.
Ideas and thoughts that lack...
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...
dark, grinning faces, staring back at me. Shadows on the wall, dancing in the light, waiting for me, to slip into night. The voices they echo, whisper softly in my ear, but not like they once did, 'cause no longer do I fear. My mind is empty, my worries are gone, the demons are...
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...
The one who never leaves, the depths of our minds. You dont know their name, or the looks on their face, but yet you still search, all over this place. You dont know who they are, or if they even exist, but until they are found, you'll always persist. Why? For the simplest...
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...
I'd be guilty of it everyday. So, instead I'll just write this rhyme, using words I'd never say...out loud.
My spine trembles, with an unknown ache. With this ancient heart, that nothing could resemble, feeling it's own earthquake...through a dark shroud.
Retracing steps made...
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...
can help?). It's my most recent poem... I've only written a couple this year... trying to get back into the swing of things.
Life would be so much easier if my heart and mind were in sync,
If only they could get on the same page, then it would be much easier to think
to find yourself a mate..
don't think romance is all that blooms
and find your wrong too late.
Be careful who it is you trust,
don't believe all you read.
Love can really be just lust,
planted like a seed.
Before you decide to meet,
someone met online one day.
Try to be...
that inspired me to write this one. Some of the lines I took are from the other poem. This poem is a mixture of my words and the author I cannot take all the credit.
I truly hope you get this letter,
And I hope you can make better.
I don’t mean...
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...
hoping you would roam
Making wild assumptions that this must be your home
Your perfection follows me in a silhouette
It's all I've ever wanted, everything and yet
Something isn't right, something unintentional
As when I look at you, you're two dimensional
You cannot be real...
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...
I can feel your heartbeat--like a toy wound up,
A little porcelain monkey, manic, beating it's drum--
with a strange defiance, despite the fact that the drugs in your system have inevitably made you numb.
The blood has exited your brain, flowing from your cut...
(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
are waiting for a train to take us home
Will we find ourselves as happy again?
I can't wait to get you home
To run my hand through your curly hair
And feel the night air, the window wide
along our spines.
We will listen to jazz from the club...
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...
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...
a peace of mind
A peace of mind, that comes with time
That comes with time, and is a virtue
A virtue when felt, can never hurt you
& never hurt, is what I want
although what I want, is what I can't have
So what I can't have, is what I need
& what i need, doesn't need me...
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...
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?
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...
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
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...
for you Wyesman.. lol
Is this poetry, or something else
I once was told, but have forgot myself
If you think that it, all has to rhyme
Go read the definition, just one more time
For what I write, is not a crime
& is not perfect, all the time
Loved your words, they told the...
Oh yes I do
& to the world my thoughts, I love to spew
a poet, discovered, myself, who knew
it wasn't always, like it is now
words pouring out, like a flooded bough
i don't know when, it came to be
that with words, I decided, to make you see
& all I know, is that this is me...
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
those who've I hurt the most,
I'm sorry my image of strength is breaking off and everyday it's getting harder to cope,
I'm sorry mom that you had to hear how desperate I am to kill myself and how I still don't believe in god,
I'm sorry dad that you're bitter because your...
we choose to be,
In that space I found you and you lead me to a path where you were afraid to go.
I started to walk and call you to come with me ..........
You didn't just told me to walk along
I walked and cried, walked in pain, that pain became a friend who I had to leave in...
leaves with autumn rain
boots in mud and love so vain
hours grew short with faded light
between two sides of a twilight
boarded houses and covered sleeves
cold will set as colors leave
in our hearts burrow deep
be sure, winter does creep
brace for long slumber
save the feelings...
when you found it.
A clean slate, unmarked and new.
Or a masterpiece waiting to be created.
You see my heart used to be black. Deeply altered by the forgotten parts of my life I left behind.
Because before my heart was white, I had to shed the black from me.
Cross their hearts hope they die
impale their bodies with the needles
Dismember their limbs from their bodies
Gut while they scream in pain
Cut their heart out put it in a jar
Pour their blood into some buckets
Rip their innards from their bodies
Store them in a...
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...
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...
