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...
My dreams hide beneath,
Frighten an fragile,
I protect it's childish soul,
Held tight by my icy lungs,
Where frozen blizzards blow,
Dazed by life's gyre,
Threatened by life's liar,
I bare my teeth, and share
My claws to those who
Would take away my
m kinda freaking out right now
Because I don?t know who?s in my house
I?m seeing and hearing all these negative things
And I?ve BEEN wanting him out
You don?t love me, you don?t care
I?m not in your future
You remaining in my home
Is pure torture
Admit it, this isn?t working...
as they dictate,
never give in to their hate.
Always fight against the tricksters plots of fun,
always move on when the deeds have been done.
Seldom will they assist,
Why won't they get the gist.
Seldom do they protect,
I know, for I have felt the neglect.
Remember those who...
And you and I are here alone,
Then, will my gentle heart reach out
To draw you closer still.
And like a looking glass
Reflecting things once done,
Our thoughts...our lives... we'll see as one.
For us, the tie grows stronger with the passing of our time.
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...
Amongst the chaos,
The butterfly path or
The erratic form of waves
Cresting upon a watery canvas,
A lighthouse illuminating a fog,
The nose of a ship pushing
Through the foam.
The undulating roll of the...
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...
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,
I want to scream and run away from here,
Every day this pain just grows and grows,
Reminds me of every single day it snows.
Every thought, every word, all the things that go by,
Every single one is the reason she wants to die.
All her tears have dried and her fate...
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...
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...
Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone
wondering what the hell I did wrong
Trying to pick myself up and carry on
Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life
Lost your will to fight
Trying not to listen to the voices in your head
Fighting against the...
Left me there willing to die.
My wings are broken and soakin with blood.
Knowing I wouldn't have Gods heavenly love.
Now I'm on earth all alone.
Knowing that I'll never coming back home.
A fallen angel that made a mistake.
Wishing to take back but it was too late.
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...
there is no one else i want
I love the little thing
You’d do to make me smile
I was scared to love again
Although it had been a while
You’d kiss my cheeks
And make me blush
You’d call my beautiful
And I’d say hush
You made my world of darkness
(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
now all that I know,
For the light I once followed
Left me long ago.
The happiness faded,
Replaced with despair,
And all that I'd once seen
Was no longer there.
I search to retrieve it,
Yet my efforts in vain.
Of my once guiding light,
Only shadows remain.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
Her coat she would clean till it shined just like new
Her day was spent sleeping, as much as she could
Yet, nothing would pass her constant review
Especially the dogs in the old neighborhood
Her nemesis the bloodhound was old and sprue
Famous was he for his...
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
We don't have a reason or a right
It breaks my heart to it's core
Our egos tryin to settle some score
I say this and you say that
Why battle ..when we can in fact..
Be peaceful with one another
And be simply kind to each other
Take my hand ..let us walk if you will
and have published a book of poems in the last year... I still fear sharing my work with people. Whether they will hate it, or steal it, or not understand it... So we'll see. I hope to share something at least.
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
passing, may he rest in peace. For those who may not know who that is, he played Spock in Star Trek.
There was a man
He told me to be logical
And so I studied
There was a man
He showed me what it means to be selfless
And so I did my best to be like him
There was a man he...
A laso around your heart
It's beat is stead fast
I've got chills down my spine
I can dance on the wind
As I sing you a song
Of a beautiful mind
You complete me my love
So different, but the same
That laso I threw
Brings you closer to me
The goosebumps rise
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...
This feeling deep inside me,
The one that lasts through everything that happens to me,
I'll be honest,
I wouldn't care..
If it didn't hurt so much..
Every time it re-appeared...
The emptiness that holds me here,
Like twisting vines and thorny trees,
With it here I can never be...
right thru me
I can feel your pulse in me
When ever I'm with you.
You make me wanna sing a song
All day night and all day long
This smile that you give me
Is all I could ever ask for.
Talk with me how you feel inside
How you really think
What you really want
on the coldest of night
I bathed in the light
of your skin glowing white
and you laid next to me
the air was thick with the currents of your breath
a familiar breeze of the sea
like endless waves so warm and fresh
and I boldly stared into your eyes
into the brightest...
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 look at all the pain and strife,
Trying to help but finding out,
That what I had to give,
Wandering round with nothing to do,
Thoughts so blank,
I broke in two.
My heart longing to help,
But my body too broken to move..
My voice unheard as soon cry,
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...
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...
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...
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...
Angers seeps from my heart
Remembering the moment
I entered the room and see you
The attraction was mutual
I guess I was wrong
Sorry for loving you
You see I realised you weren't kind cuz you wasn't all that
everyone seemed to admire
I see you realised I was a good...
when I was young,
I looked around to see,
All the people standing by,
That looked so old to me.
Age is just perception from,
Just your point of view.
Others may not see the same,
In people that you do.
Time has passed and things have changed,
And when I look around to see...
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
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?
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...
