The way they walk, talk and stare..
I take from each movie a scene, a glance, every love word they share...
The way they hug, caress, the way they look in each others eyes..
The way they kiss, the way they smile..
in my head I'm replaying those scenes..
and be inspired to write. In 2000 I was on a boat in the Greek Islands and one moonlit night I was sitting on the bow of the boat looking and the stars. I thought and wondered if there was someone out there for me. So I wrote this. It seems a little corny now. The photo is...
and told beautiful lies, silvery webs of nothing that curled around them like the heat of a soft blanket on a winter morning. Hard tiles fell at their feet as the roof slid apart, the earth warning, shouting no, no. No.
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...
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
Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead.
Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again.
Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...
that I will go mad
it is also quite possible
that also you will go crazy
thus the possibility of you and me
seeing through the Game of Life
why don't we thus decide
to take one day
at a time
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...
no sunset walks in the darkening red.
No trips to far off wind swept isles;
no open laughter and carefree smiles.
No grand gestures for all to see;
nothing more than just you and me.
No watchful eyes over your pilgrim soul;
no side by side as we each pay the toll.
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...
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,
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...
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...
so clear so
mercilessly and unavoidably
obvious that you
really do not need me
I just don’t know
how should I express
for this radical gift of honesty
perhaps it will do
if receive it
with a smile
chewed by my
Another layer sustained.
Another level to the wall,
To shield me from the pain.
Another hour, another day,
of longing to be free.
Another night inside myself,
Praying for reprieve.
Another heart, another soul,
Reaching out to mine.
Another glimpse of something...
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...
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...
than her own brother?
Spent so much energy
I tried for the best.
I got to know you the best.
I got to see you grow
In ways others couldn't.
Trust was gained then lost
At the cost of others.
That's when you know
Life isn't truly fair.
It's not when you don't have money
Have you ever wondered what it would like on the other side
Have you ever had a person
Who could make you drool, but now he makes you cry
Have you ever hoped for a better day
Have you ever hoped that the pain would wash away
When he touched you and you screamed
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...
As a veil in your thoughts and dreams
Image of my red lips and red hair
Is what you remember
But no life is behind those thin eyes
While the real ones gleamed that colour
Like the rest of me
Shards tearing us apart
Or perhaps we were always torn...
Just in case
You put a smile on my face
Making my heart skip a beat
Soul is now whole and complete
Challenged the depths of my mind
Darkness no longer left to find
Things you make my body feel
Wounds are beginning to heal
Sparking a brand new imagination
Friendship built on a...
I see the window to my soul instead. It's like a broken mirror i can't see through,
as the pieces won't be picked up till you've bled.
And I realised, my eyes, they cut so deep,
for the loneliest reflections never smile.
My shattered entity was all I could keep,
by making every...
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...
cannot clearly see
What is the use of ears
if you are told you cannot properly hear
What is the use of the mind
if you are told you do not really understand
What is the use of the World
If the best philosophers call it just a Metaphor
What is the use of your Self
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...
and take heed.
This tale of valor, of wit and wonderous deed.
From far off Elswyer a most distant place,
Came the greatest of Dragonborn that evil could face.
Saw it myself! I swear unto thee,
For adventurer i was till arrow struck knee.
I saw when Alduin met had his grim date...
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...
like the rest
I will always be
What they can't see
I'll just be myself
Never have the wealth
Nor the fine cars
Can't give you the stars
Don't own a Rolex watch
Clothes don't match
Saying that comes from the past
Nice guys do finish last
I am very giving
Work hard for my...
(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
who needed lyrics for a track he made. Let me know if you like (if you care), p.s., always available to write more for those that need it, i also do vocals:
“In Darkness Let Me Dwell”
(Deep spoken vocals/:32)
Winter's tendrils, crept across the land,
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
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...
your breath on the window and the sand dunes covering the playground, this isn't even the right house but there you are, calling me backwards,
And tomorrow with that leering idiots refrain,
Well suppose, just for a moment, I don't need either of you, let it rest under the...
Thanksgiving feast is over,
We haven't even digested the meals,
Before Bombarded with commercials,
And loads of black Friday deals.
There is still turkey in the fridge,
And a pumpkin pie or two,
While shoppers skim the paper,
To plan out what to do.
The football games are over...
So alive amid dying light,
Embraced by the night,
Illuminate with unseen bliss.
The earth is your canvas.
Scary, yet I’ve no fear.
From afar I see slow dancing:
On haunted soil, frolicking
In ragged dress with messy hair,
Awkward steps oh, so dear.
Remove your cozy boots...
brushes and paints
cannot do without
cameras and fancy lenses
sculptor needs a stone
or a piece of wood plus
hammer and chisel
yet we poets still
believe in using words
shadows and silence
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
I can't hold it in anymore
I shattered my own heart
Now I'm breaking down
I'm falling apart,
so listen to me now
I'm not okay
I'm not alright
This is the truth
I'm not Fine
My walls are crumbling Down
there's fire and hell all around
I can feel myself slowly...
but I found it long ago and it stuck.
I am sending this note to advise you,
That taxes have taken way,
The things I have found most essential,
My workshop, my reindeer and my sleigh.
So I am making my rounds on a donkey,
He is old and crippled and slow.
So you will know if you...
for a touch,
A touch that can set my soul on fire and fuel the burning within.
Craving, yearning for that touch so sensual and inviting.
I dream of you in this moment giving me what I long for.
Find me and my want reaching for you.
Feeling every motion every breath every soft...
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
