    I found a poem I wrote back in 2013.

    Silent Warriors In the dark harsh weather. In the bracken and heather. In the long howling night. Their howl last up to the first light. Their eyes as bright as lasers. Their teeth as sharp as razors. Fixing their prey with an icy glare, Their body covered in warm hair...

    I miss you Sands falls in the hour glass As

    twilight dissolves into darkness I remember you You were my light And now I walk into darkness Alone and afraid But I have learned to say goodbye.

    One essence of life, Can take long

    strides  Existence --insane  Brushes with pain  Inner - outer  Look through the water  We observe ourselves  We perceive ourselves  As long as we see  The truth is with thee  Much peace -nat the blue eyed cat

    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...

    Fall Feeling the air leave your lungs

    Everything hurt. Everything hurt

    so deeply. My heart just crumbling , and the pieces falling onto the floor in hope that he would pick them up. But he didn't. My body so numb, aching for a relief, anything to numb the torture I felt. My hand reaching for the painkillers... Pill by pill until I couldn't feel a...

    In Sleepless Hours

    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...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    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...

    In The Gloam

       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 where the...

    I want to see your breath,

    rise and fall with your breasts; as your heart pounds in your chest. Its gentle beats lulling me to rest. Your skin on my skin like a gentle caress. Your tresses wild and splayed all over my chest, no make up on is when you look best. I wanna lay with you forever and no less...

    They Told Me, Well Tried.

    They told me I take life too seriously, so I made them laugh. They tried to say I had a learning disability, I haven't had a B, in over 5 years, and I take advanced classes. They said I couldn't sing, I play guitar, write my own music, (& sing) and I've been asked if I could be...

    I am confused, my thoughts crowded of my soul

    being tortured. Each time I sleep, my dreams are filled with blood of the innocence and dammed. My sight clouded with shadows of the past, I don’t know where to turn, and I keep running even though I’m going to a cliff I can not stop and I don’t know who to ask...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    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...

    Stalking

    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 Missed Your Smile Today.

    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...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.
