    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...

    Nulah's Moon The day is done,

    The sun long since gone to bed, The mournful cry of the lonely loon, As he swims 'neath the August moon. I am his brother, As I travel in the ghostly glow, I have no compass, no earthly map, To guide me on my lonely quest. Only a face, a voice, Whispering from the mists of a...

    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...

    In The Gloam

       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 where the...

    I guess its a story that will never be told,

    I guess it means nothing to anyone really, yet in my heart this story, maps out my entire world, pretense and nonsense, confusions and delusions, every day I breathed but every day I died.

    Empty? Perhaps. I don't know what it is,

    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...

    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...

    Tamashi Now every time I see you standing

    there, 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...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    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...

    Passing Sometimes we aimlessly pass through

    life, And never take a chance, And never stop to sing a song, Or never stop to dance. We simply do the easy things, Just trying to survive. And never try to do the things, To prove we are alive. There are some, who really want to love, But feel the risk too great. While...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    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...

    AGE : I remember times

    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...

    You & I When all the passioned days have

    gone 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.

    The Winds Of Time

    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.

    The darkness around me Is

    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.
