the ground today
And held it up above me
Looking, wondering and pondering
How high were you yesterday
How far above the ground
I looked at in wondrous awe
And asked how high were you
Above the clouds
Above the earth
How far did you climb
I held it in the warm breeze
Let it dance...
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 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...
Falling apart piece by piece
Anger building to a rage
Feeling confined to a cage
Tearing my flesh away
Trying to get through the day
I feel it's hunger growing inside
It no longer feels it has to hide
Eating away at my core
Energy it's trying to store
Tearing away at my mind...

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?
(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
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...
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...
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...
will have crushed
When you shut the door
Each year that goes by
One less tear ....
will shed from my eye
This cold truth
Stands this chance for reason
As love changes
Like autumns fall
Bleeding leaves to these seasons
The anger may hurt
Yet time comes and goes
Like long ago...
But i cant bring the courage to speak
No matter how hard i try
My voice becomes so weak
So i found a better way
Got out me pen to write
I wrote about the good things
I wrote about how you changed my life
First line was how you smiled
How it could shine so bright
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...
spinning around and around and as time goes by. Over thinking consumes me, death gripping on me , crawling on my skin, head to toe. Until I've become numb and just stiff. I look to the right and left to see if there's a light in this world I'm in. Why I'm here? Where is everyone...
You have to be taught to be happy from a neutral position.
There is no way to jump from misery to bliss -
not if either emotion is sincere.
You have to go in steps. There is no teleport in this life,
in this mental and physical realm.
Only in math and only in one process of...
seat to look outside,
My coffee cup in hand.
The sun had yet to raise its head,
To spread its warmth upon the land.
The darkness seemed to magnify,
The crispness of the air,
And I could watch it all unfold,
From the comfort of my chair.
There is nothing like the morning smells...
Lonely day today,
not even an email,
let alone a phone call (ah, bliss!)
or seeing you (even better!)
And my heart wants to contact you...oh so bad.
But I know you're busy.
I try to be mindful of that,
even as my heart and soul cry out for you...
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...
needs to know why
The other part doesn't care
I always tried to be fair
I truly cared about you
Thought what we had was true
It's time to say goodbye
Wish you would just say why
Is it something I did or said
Maybe your messing with my head
I hate you not talking to me
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
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 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...
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...
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...
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
that lead this rocky shore. Scraps of your clothing tossed apart without sanity. Cold hearts of treason that runs amok. The pure madness upon this calamity which I am now sad. Darkness has set and the moon is about. Its deathly face of love filled with dew dripping like a candle...
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...
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...
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
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
you turned my world upside down
I stopped answering
Silently grasping help
Hoping for notice
Theres no way you haven't feel fishy before
My ears divide voices
Yours aren't cold, its ******* freezing
Do you really turn a blind eye
Whenever I beg warmth
Ignoring me, who slowly...
Out of me
Remember me in pictures
Black or white
And let your memories
Fill me with new colors
I had no life
Would you remember the repetitions
Reduce me to flashes and pixels
And color me as one:
Today is a static blur
Of my deceased soul
Eyes blinking, I said goodbye
filled with desolation as I face my own wrath.
And as my sidewalk slowly floods through emotion,
with each singular tear creating my ocean
I wonder, would we smile without destinations?
Could we all walk as one without expectations?
And if we cry in unity, our world might...
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
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...
that I won't accomplish anything.
My family doesn't notice me.
I'm like an aspiration that just walks by and just startles people at times. Everyone one is changing around me. Everyone is moving forward, when I'm just stuck here.
I dream of many things, but I'm losing hope in...
I cannot load my music play list
Someone left me a rude comment online
I have three loads of laundry waiting that I should have done last night
No one at work today was carrying their weight
My rent check is going to be late
The fax I sent came out blank now my...
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...
