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...
(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
Connecting too much
Prefer feeling small
Small has no obligations
Easily grounded and calm
Like liquid libations
The worlds in my palm
Deep is so ugly
Can’t escape it so smugly
Can’t avoid the mind’s eye
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
that isn't meant to be?
Imprisoning yourself for someone when you know you could be free
It's like hoping for rain when you're standing in the desert
Trying to grasp what fell apart when you know you could do better
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Emit me as the avalanche of fear,
the very sand that slips through your glassy lips.
Control is dispersing.
Can you feel it?
in the tumultuous lulls of quickened breath.
A gasp, an internal shrinking of lungs.
And you, aching like the coward I never knew...
Your eyes, your mouth and only God knows what else
I don't think you will ever understand
Or maybe you'll never talk to me again
But I did love you, I really did
You were my first love, my very best friend
~I need someone to talk tooo :): ~
but my own crazy thoughts and dreams to sooth me.
I know the pain of a killer
He dwells inside of me.
I've felt the courage of hero’s
and the strength of monsters
All crawling through this weak and helpless body
The killer is a madman;
Ripping through my translucent skin
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
In this night, I will be with you, as I light the candles for this special eve, my heart rejoices in the light you bring.
In this night, though we’re far apart, the feelings which consume the core of who I am, allow a place where we are free to be.
Why doesn't anybody want me
They just see right through me
Trying so hard to hide
But i cant keep the pain inside
Its eating away at me
I only wish they could see
I've been hurt so much
I can feel it in my soul
Like a piece has been taken
I don't feel whole
until it's just almost too much
A sparkle shines in the eye,
no more need to be shy
Hands roam and explore,
clothes begin to hit the floor
Need and desire building,
our pleasure needs releasing
Bodies beautifully entwined,
dancing to a mutual grind
The world outside fades away...
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...
While waiting for the sun to rise
Pink cotton candy clouds said hi/goodbye.
Just one star's shinning, twinkling high.
This sticky glitter star tickled my sight.
She drops down slowly, puts up a fight.
Can't let her be; though the sun just might.
I stared at her night through...
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...
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...
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
that seems like a blank white back ground. We over time develop a canvas to paint ,our words and ideas on . However as we add leaves trees and mountains to it . A jealous painter called society switches the canvas with something even more beautiful . so as you paint you think...
to carve a statue
out of life
cutting my hands
as i struggle with
it dominating my world
but the pains are more than worth it
designing its creation
never known before
and the love
it helps me learn
goes far beyond
what empty hands
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...
I stood where I'd pulled softly on her hair
And mothers' milk would flow.
I was so pale as paper waiting to be written on.
Now off on a journey imitating a life mourned.
Black hearted and jaded,
Speaking in a different tongue.
Lost without a compass,
Running trough a field of...
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...
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...
I've known you now for sixteen days
We met out where the sparrow plays
Where golden wheat rustled and swayed
And morning sun immersed our gaze
Your flowing hair to me impressed
Upon my soul a desirous quest
To speak to you I might suggest
That all our worries we divest...
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...
when my heart was heavy
sought refuge in a place where the laughter was strange
where there were men of pestilence in their souls
but it was a place to call home
it was a place that in the cold of night remained warm
you might be frightened by the gleam in their steel shod eyes...
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
all of them lies,
I needed only the truth
so I threw them all away.
I've seen many eyes
heard voices sweet and brash
seeing in them,
a life that could have been.
False joy in watching things grow
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...
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...
her little, dark hand to the edge
there she stared and gurggled
there was "Used to be"
unseen for months
the women with the table top back
the woman with the long white hair
Used to be is her name
she used to be a lady.
this is only 1. there are others bur today...
makes us feel that were not alone in the universe.
The universe is huge, and big.
With the love around us, it is something to take for granted.
We never really know what we all have till it's really gone, till it's to late. Something real to take in, but to let go so easily can...
Why must you make me wait
I feel as if I may just be bait
I feel like I'll get hurt in the end
I'm always forced to bend
But never to break
It worse than venom from a snake
Now I'm done I wont be your fool
I'm not just some dumb tool
I will always love you
you immediately judge me? Have I done something to offend you? Is it the power in my walk, is it the pride in my heart that shines through me, the grace in my strides that you cause too feel this uncertainty. Why is it when I walk down the street, you immediately judge me?
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,
to her which
No human could ever do to his enemies
I moulded her, played her and destroyed her
How could I be so cruel?
How could I be so mean?
I knew she would love me nonetheless
Thats what made me ruthless
I blame her for being so nice to me
Making me think that she will be...
labels that I now believe,
their words are like a guillotine, and my esteem is what they cleave.
I try to make them happy, but they are never pleased,
i feel like my happiness is all but slowly seized.
so tonight ill pray to my demons, hope for better luck,
but they demand...
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?
