    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 hate this feeling! One moment I am at the top

    of a cliff, content, Happy even, and the next thing I know I jump or I am pushed. Doesn't really matter but now I am falling, full of anxiety and excitement. The the falling is slow, I learn to deal with it, but as soon as I hit bottom I start questioning everything, was I...

    This is one I wrote about 11 years ago,

    when I was 15 or so. It's called "It's you". Haven't written anything recently, but if this goes over well I may be willing to share a couple more of my old ones. I'm the girl you'll never know Because my feelings never show And if you think that you should go It's because I...

    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...

    She Lies Easy

    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, and wait...

    The Winds Of Time

    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...

    Threads Of Ourselves

    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...

    Does it still make you laugh

    when I trip over my words on the way to your heart? Does it still make you cry when I hold in my arms so tight? Can I still make you mine for as long as we are together? Can we still be us when you're gone forever? Will you stand by my soul like you and I did at the alter? Will...

    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...

    Broken..... The happiness

    that is left behind, left me running oh so dry, nothing left for me to hide, dark, beneath, and inside, everything I thought, everything I knew, nothing's left not even you. Now I'm gone you can't find the broken life I've left behind.
