    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.

    I never said I love you This much I know is

    true A kiss was never stolen Which turned my burned heart blue But in the midnight hour When it's all said and done Better we had each other And created so much fun You were part of my universe But now you're just dust The pieces of the alleyway The old forgotten lust No short...

    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...

    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...

    Mosaic

    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...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    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, taunting, pleasing and in it's recourse I lay...

    I wonder if you look at your phone,

    telling yourself its for the best, and that to speak to me, could end so much. I wonder if you think of me, and ask what happened, if I am still the one you love, or if I am just someone in the background

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    and if we only have tonight,

    would you hold me tight? would you kiss me softly? and tell me you love me? if we only have right now, will you slowly take away my pain? would you show me all I needed to see? would you make me happy?

    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...

    In The Gloam

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. 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 To cut...

    She walks in a glass case made of carnival

    screens, trapping her tiny body. She is a caricature of the woman she'd like to be Exaggerated movements, laughing, smiling kindness, kindness, oh-so-sweet, Garish masks, gowns, Kabuki-- hiding so much bitterness so much hate so much grief.

    Deeper Stranger.

    Sometimes I can't stand the stupidity.

    Those peeps don't get my empathy. Is it so hard to get yourself some education? Learn how to respect those without relation. I call it laziness, the craziness you spew, such ignorance. One can't be so arrogant to think they know everything. Someone once said a wise man knows...

    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...
