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...
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...
(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 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...
so many other days
When the vision of your face
Had looked me in the eye
As once it did before
When love was riding high
Today I had to cry
Like so many other days
When the whisper of your voice
Had sounded in my ear
As once it did before
When love had still lived here
Riddles and words won't fill this void
My whole life is a mess
I guess that makes me a disaster
Chasing things that hurt me
Just to feel...
And love is just a word...
They all can tell you what it means
But is it what we really feel
Or what we hope that someone else does...
or wasted. By some people killed, by some it's invested.
Some people have more, while others have less. We all try to buy it but it can't be replaced.
In life it's our currency, every moment is paid for. Spending it recklessly, then wish we had more.
Because it seems to...

Seems to me here lately, and as of now.That my life is moving swiftly, and I'm glad, but asking how?Because I truly don't know, a spell, or a hex? tell me that it isn't so,& this is just how things can go.. upon this train...
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

you will encounter those who take poetry too lightly, and those who take poetry too seriously. The former will give you no real indication of their true opinion of the merits of the poem, while the latter shall reject it out of hand, or be entirely unsatisfied until you write it...
I buoni davvero
non hanno un'ambizione,
non hanno alcun sentiero,
ma tutto, in bene o in male, è un'emozione.
Non hanno mai una meta,
non hanno mai ragione,
né un angolo di quiete,
né un posto....mai assegnato a un'illusione.
I buoni davvero
camminano a fatica...
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,
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
and came across it again, not very good but whatever)
To her who I admire from afar
The one who makes me feel
Like there is nothing in this world
I cannot do
To her who has captured my heart
And ruthlessly holds a grip on it
Unknowingly having all of my affection
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...
because I dont flaunt what I don't got
degrade me because I'm willing to do what it takes to come up
resent me for being everything that youre not
you can judge me if you want
but it won't put you on top
leaves, oh how they
The rustling whisper in the crisp night air lulls me into a slow, soft slumber.
And how I dream of a pond, rippling, ruffling, undulating,
And dream that I am one.
And so I rise with the fall, that prepossessing Autumn blessing,
And make my...
Nothing but smiles, truth be told...
But behind the smiles, no one knows what lies...
That every night he weeps and cries...
Night after night he lies awake and thinks...
Why not down those pills with a few drinks?
But something tells him that he wants to live...
while back. It's called Reaching Zion:
Desires privately intertwined aching to be of one heart, one body, one soul, and one mind just as it is part of the Creator's design. Rushing toward the river's edge while disrobing our war torn emotional vestments and tossing them to the...
Never a laugh
Nor a smile
All his days were spent
In pity and denial
Then came the one
Who made it all worthwhile
No matter what occurred
In his tumultuous life
She stayed by his side
Then came the day
When it all went astray
Every single moment
Every fond memory
Understand that no one feels the way you do...
Selfish liar, how dare you make me into who I am,
If I knew who I was...
Drag the heat with you, spread your wings and fly.
Oh, I want to feel inside of you,
Touch your heart when I hold it so tight.
And kill me with each...
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...
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...
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...
5 pill, 6 pill, 7 pill...more
Empty bottle and lifeless body lay on the floor.
No one finds her 'till a few days more.
She's overwhelmed and cannot take the pressure.
For she could not make the measure.
She died because her head was...
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...
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?
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 am yelling to the shore yet getting nowhere. The pain is deepening, becoming more real, it’s a seal of my fate and I cannot negate (nullify). Only go with the flow, the fall and this one hits a bottom that hurts. It’s a pressure, pushing me against the surface, forcing me...
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...
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...
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
Cannot hold back a heart
It matters not
You cannot be here
To hold me, and i you
For your eyes
Fill me with a fire
Stronger; than touch ever could
Opals; they gleam with all the colours
A spectrum of moods
Of a stormy mind.
I am his sunshine
Casting light through the...
.. the reasons ? I do not know
Maybe I do but those gloomy thoughts just won't let me go
As I am writing this I hope my tears do not flow
But I shall not give in I shall not look down below
Will this pain ever end, will it ever be history
Will new days come, will my heart be...
my lifes overflowing with confussion,
our life may twist and turn to appear as an illusion,
At the begging our DNA had been split was it a blood transfussion?
Is what we see just an ambient occlusion,
Im having a bit of trouble coming to a complete conclusion.
You want to return to yesterday
Make wrongs right
Follow some long ago dream
Silly child wake up from your make believe
Time does not run in reverse
When a moment in time is lived it's gone
With a blink it becomes the past
For this very reason we are long ago taught
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
Footsteps back and forth in my house
Step step step
The sky is bright but a cool breeze outside my window
My body is glued to my bed
Relaxed just thinking
Thinking of how much time I'm wasting lying here
Thinking of what it means to have a life
Thinking of the outside world...
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...
greets,lightly and gently
a losing fight
for the tired and weary
Dried tears shadowed my pillow
its been awhile since I've slept
the air is too hard to swallow
trapped between what I dreamed and dreamt
Goodbye first love
I will always miss you
I wished through the night to the...
you held my hand
and we are thirteen again
We made our bed under a tree
a promise we kept under its shadow
we were kings and we were free
our sky was red, orange and yellow
Your tall boots covered in mud
my torn jeans drenched in water
we fell like leaves graceful and...
The winds of time erode away
The memories of our past,
Leaving us with shadowy thoughts
That disappear too fast.
And so we cling with all our might
And try to hold them near,
All the things for which we care,
And those that we hold dear.
No matter how much we try to cling...
Are you afraid of me?
Don't be scared,i am here.
I'll stay with you and keep near.
Be happy,my dearest.
Don't be sad.
For i am there.
I'll be here when you're asleep.
And here when you're awake.
My arms wrapped around you
When you shake.
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...
light in my hand.
my breath becomes heavy
as my heart races in anticipation.
Gripping the cold metal
burning as it touches my skin.
Slowly I run it across flesh
and watch the red seep thru.
Emotions pour out
my vision begins to blur.
The feeling of absolute bliss
If you can, give me a look, a word, one letter.
If you can, tell me you’re all mine, tell me it wasn’t a joke, tell me a lie.
If you can, look me in the eye — into my soul, take it all in, and tell me what you see.
If you can, take this page out of your notes.
