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...
the way he licks his perfect lips
the way he laughs
the way he smells
the way he flirts
the way he just stands there
the way he eats
the way he scooters
the way he stares
the way he back-talks authority
the way he drums
the way he slouches
the way he participates
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...
(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
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...
slamming across the street
chocolate brown and the number nine
a casual check of the wrist for the time
rice and wings and beer -- but not soup,
you hated that -- so I guess that too...
cashmere blankets and clap-off lights
times when i can't fall asleep some nights
An hour would last a day.
And every next one,
would be another one to play.
I dream of childhood.
To fight my demise.
Destroy it with a stick
that is a sword in disguise.
I dream of childhood.
Climbing trees to the top.
The branches ate my future,
the ground is still a long...
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...
ask not for something new,
hold onto the bright star of hope,
and take my hand.
don’t tell me I am nothing now,
when I know I am so much more,
your eyes so dark they shine,
and your anger as hot as molten ore.
You call out another's name,
yet you know I remain,
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...
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
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...
And thought we were alone.
But we were joined by several more,
Connected on their phone.
Before the words could be expressed,
They had to answer text.
I could only sit and wait,
In hopes that I’d be next.
So the future lies before us,
And cell phones catch the blame.
for strolling madly.
Fall into the void...
Total, utter, surrender.
Contemplation, rumination is my ruination.
My ruined nation.
Take me back to the start, back to the start...
Write from the heart.
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...
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
wounds and cracks of life's earthquakes.Beauty in all its grace,Dignity struggling mountains steep,The power of beauty's face,Lips awaiting for a kiss,And sigh to breathe again,The past is past,Just say when.Lifesaving, calming, purposeConfident, head high,Abandon loss but...
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 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...
A fantasy obscured;
An appalling hoax,
This is my box;
A pain long felt,
Insanity cards dealt;
one you love.
The noise resound in the sky
flying on the wings of a dove.
She calls on her other
but there is no reply.
they do not know that she is near
near in mind and heart, that is.
You are about to leave;
I see it in your eye.
But before you go, answer me this:
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...
Pour me a glass,
my dear, pour me a glass.
This plan I undertake,
just to see you when I wake.
You pour a glass,
Oh dear, you pour a glass.
With one gulp, your demise,
I awake as a corpse's bride.
Another day. I can not take. Another why? It kills my pride to have to stay and face today. Maybe tomorrow will kill the sorrows? Maybe tomorrow will kill the hate? Maybe the rain will wash all the pain of yesterday down the drain. And in my mind all of the cries. Louder than...
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...
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,
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
Drive. Came across this one. I never showed it to the person I wrote it for, I didn't think she wanted it at the time. I doubt it would've changed anything. But if I had showed her, I wouldn't be questioning why I chose not to. If you have something to tell someone, tell them...
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...
and I are now facing calamity
Late night laughter
That was then....what will come after?
Road trips and mischief
Memories are clear, but will soon drift
Where did the time go?
I think we both know
I can't extend my hand any longer
You resist reaching farther to grow...
When your face appeared
That's all I could say...
How open your face was,
Warm and affable,
Showing the vulnerable
Anterior triangle of your neck
Trust, passive, encouragement,
The trust zone, the lust,
That Cupid moment...
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...
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...
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...
Never letting them fall
There were times our laughter shook them
But they held too much
Too much fear and insecurity
Lack of faith and only worry
Fear of the world's perception
Wanting to attain their ideal perfection
The reality of pain
Seething pasts that...
Skin to skin,
Back to abdomen,
And knees to knees,
The smell of your hair,
Head half turned,
Stubble, lips whisper soft words
In a listening ear.
And in the equatorial zone
The rising of the sun,
The purpose, energy...
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
