    Mosaic

    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...

    If Only They Spoke ...

    Ode To A Lost Sock

    (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 my alarm...

    She Lies Easy

    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...

    Today I had to cry Like

    Time, it's either well-spent

    or wasted. By some people killed, by some it's invested. Some people have more, while others have less. We all try to buy it but it can't be replaced. In life it's our currency, every moment is paid for. Spending it recklessly, then wish we had more. Because it seems to...

    In the land of poetry commentary,

    you will encounter those who take poetry too lightly, and those who take poetry too seriously. The former will give you no real indication of their true opinion of the merits of the poem, while the latter shall reject it out of hand, or be entirely unsatisfied until you write it...

    Another poetry in Italian language I BUONI

    DAVVERO I buoni davvero non hanno un'ambizione, non hanno alcun sentiero, ma tutto, in bene o in male, è un'emozione. Non hanno mai una meta, non hanno mai ragione, né un angolo di quiete, né un posto....mai assegnato a un'illusione. I buoni davvero camminano a fatica...

    I am yelling to the shore yet getting nowhere. The pain is deepening, becoming more real, it’s a seal of my fate and I cannot negate (nullify). Only go with the flow, the fall and this one hits a bottom that hurts. It’s a pressure, pushing me against the surface, forcing me...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.
