    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...

    My love is not silent it is the coo of the

    morning dove at dawn with tender breath trilled over soft morning lips. The downy wait of a lover's response in the creamsicle breeze left lonely and echoed. I am not the coldness of the universe. The dark poverty of the vacuum in your songs has dried my wells. Love is a...

    Titled Hollow. Empty husk of what

    once was, Butterfly soul flown away. Hollow shell; Hollow eyes; All fire dies In the end. Ashes on the wind, Remnants of before. Silence falls. The grave calls But I am already dead and gone.

    Awake all night, oh master of fright,

    for you just keeps growing, With every day that has past. I know for sure my love for you, Is the kind of love that last. I see your face when I first wake, And again when I fall to sleep. Your image is one that I will cherish, It is one that I can keep. My body aches in...

    Truth often goes unheard,

    at times spoken not a word, fools that can not bear it will give you the bird, it's a shame they do not care, but ignoring it will lead to despair, for if ignorance can be bliss there is no purer example than this. People don't want to admit things: their fears, their tears, the...

    Your Hair Black Your hair black Raining down

    your face. Hiding your secrets. Exotic plays. Taken aback I'm dragged into your nightfall. Glimpse of passion. You chuckle. Your eyes know your beauty. I wonder how they close slowly Exposing your neck With your sensual blackness Raining down your back.

    Pain In These Eyes

    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? Can you...
