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?
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
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...
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 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...
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...
Do they enhance you?
Do they diminish you?
Do they improve you?
Do they suppress you?
Do they help you become a better version of yourself?
As we relax into each other, we are finding a new beauty. Finding that giving each other more freedom makes the world a more...
Makes me stop and think
But sometimes it doesn't go by fast enough
Especially when things are getting rough
If you only knew
What I go through
Then maybe you can understand
But maybe all of this is part of a bigger plan
Just hold on one day longer
All of this...
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...
A friend you never were to me
I regret giving you the attention you NEVER deserved
I gave to you what I can't give to myself
Memories fade away, I want to forget it
No, Alzheimer's I'm not welcoming you
Hopeless I remain, faceless I have became
A lack of identity remains...
Remember when all we did was smile?
Where did those times go?
Where did we go wrong?
Remember when we didn't hate?
Remember when money wasn't an issue?
What ever happened to us?
Why did we let society devour us?
Remember when we shined like diamonds?
Remember when we were...
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...
I'm the outcast you dehumanized
I'm the college student you want no part of
I'm the loner who you forgot about
I'm the phoenix that always rises from the ashes
I'm the lone wolf that never needed a pack
I'm the prototype that defeated the stereotype
I'm the black...
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...

swimming over a desert
in a mirage of the sea
walk with me
be with me
release the hold on
common, usual, conventional, safe
immerse deep into
seeing, emotions, being, feeling
and light within desiring to be expressed. Repressed thoughts dance upon a page, illuminating darkness like an actor on a stage. Bringing to the surface every hesitant glance and misdirection. A lie is only the truth when the truth is perfection.
Ballroom dancers glide along...
(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
feast upon your flesh as a message from his soul professing love to you.
Do not mistake his eagerness to be with you when the moonlight outshines the neon vacancy sign as an act of romance.
Do not mistake the hands caressing the places of your body you've invited him to...
thought it possible
To mix the polarised opposites
Of two completely separate concepts,
But work with me here.
It's not such a crazy idea,
Psychology and mathematics
Storage of energy, of goodwill,
Of compromise, of love...
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...
lay the observers
the thinkers -
Is it their choice or their nature?
The latter whispers the wolf
but he would, wouldn't he?
A predator after all is not malicious,
Merely a slave of his nature.
shining on you.
The moon that's smiling at me
Is the same moon that's smiling at you.
We breathe the same air.
We drink the same water.
Let's get up and walk again
Let's keep up strength and maintain progress.
It's not alright
But it's ok :-)
Because we think we can...
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,
From love and drugs for me I can't tell the difference it's the exact same comforting...
Makes you see the whole world for what it is, of pain and agoney and broken promises and suffering
But blocks out the reqrieum of my dreams
And helps you see that nothing is ever what it...
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...
Running in a world of white mist
Nothing but the dirt trail ahead
The cold bites my bones and I clench my fists
I should've stayed in bed
This world consumes me
Clouds curl around my feet
Impossible to escape as it rises to my knees
The fresh air smells ever...
The moment of soft arms
Wrapping around shoulders broad,
Chest to chest,
Lips to lips,
And mouth to neck.
It is what it is, because
Nature designed it so
The horizontal dance of two.
And of all the fanciful play
Acted out in act
One, two and three,
Cannot suffice to abate
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...
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...
Talking in circles.
Of fantastical theory of why,
Invention after the facts,
We connect the dots
To make sense of what really are
But labelled effective,
Due to seemingly therapeutic effects,
Sunny spells and scattered showers...
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
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
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...
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...
I can't help that every time I say "I'm fine" I lie.
I can't help that I'd almost take not wasting anymore oxygen on this earth than going another damn day where I want to slit my wrists.
I can't help the people I love, I sure as hell can't help myself.
I can't find a way to...
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...
with mine, it is brilliant
Hard to look at; yet almost impossible
To avert your eyes
The colors sensational
Vivid images exploding
Like a star being born
Let your thoughts collide with mine
Into the walls around us
The ensuing echoes singing
A song that brings joy to me...
