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.
an epidemic of travelling warmth
down streams of blood
life giving crimson waters
helpless to fight for what matters
and how I ignore it in routine repetition
and in the darkness
the criss cross of my lingerie
are purple soothing sounds
that tip toes a sweet scent...
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
Deaf from the forced silence
Speechless due to no words
Trapped in my own little world
Avoiding the conflict of others
Desiring a touch or a feel
But locked away instead
The nescessity of choice
An illusion of some control
Just a momentary withdrawal
A moment that will...
it continues with, for your own protection
the protection of, cages and barbed wire, the protection of broken bones and bloodied sinew
the protection of old men and young boys
they gave us, sisters of the cloth,
and the signatures of turgid old white men, TPV
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
thousand fathoms into you
Your flesh tight around me
The inside of your thighs
stealing not just
the heat from my body
But the very breath
from my lungs
The dew of your body
Your deep wetness
Wringing out a groan
That batters my sails
As I crest into you...
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
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...
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...
love Like a new dress
The fit and the cut, made to impress.
Tried on my smile, so soft on her face
A show of affection, silken and lace.
Saved me from myself the day she did send
Kindness from a stranger on whom I depend
She “believed in me”, once a throwaway line
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...
my leaves will fall
and you will see through me,
my brown lines juxtaposed
with brick, slate and sky.
For now, I remain
put together with light;
as my green joy breaks down
in the cooler air,
I reveal to you
what was already there:
the yellow of my soul,
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...
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...
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...
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 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...
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...
I'm learning now how to let go
So my smile's no longer just a show
And I don't know how long it takes
I'll bend it back before it breaks
I used to think it's all your fault
But I'm the one holding the cord
I see now I must first forgive myself
To gain back all that I...
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...
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 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...
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...
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
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...
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...
about life as a whole. They way it tears us down, the way it burns our soul. However, life can also swarm with love, faith, and hope. And through these gifts, are the way we most cope. Life seems to hate us, and make us be our worst. But you must remember you're not alone 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...
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...
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
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?
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.
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'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...
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...
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...
(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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
