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
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...
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...
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...
July 7, 2012) There's a chicken on my feet while I'm taking a wild love shower, now. It tickles my toes for a while. It hurts, so I ask my boyfriend does he have any coke? I felt more wild, screamin' n' playin' around like a child. Makes in the kool aid jacuzzi. Doing things I'd...
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,
What? We can't hear you. Can you speak louder? Maybe not. Your voice is low and no one can't hear you. Your voice is low and no one can't understand you. Your voice is low. Your voice is low. Your voice is low. I mean, we literally can't appreciate you. What? C'mon, girl! What's...
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
playground here tonight
I know about the war raging inside
Am I good enough? Can I do this? Should I?
What choices are still mine?
I know how scary this is, uncertain for sure
These stripes are more than scars without a cure
I know how they look at you
Forgive them their...
2012) Its my birthday and there's nowhere to go. People always laugh at me because I only have one pair of shoes. Crying like a little boy in the restroom wanting and needing what I can't never seem to receive. Sore throat hurts real bad. Loneliness is my best friend. When I...
(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
A gray cast was set in rigid permanence.
Though through it burst the occasional bit of light.
It was meant to block the sun and it’s glorious rays.
To remain, perhaps unto infinity.
Yet somehow, a peek of blue formed in the gray
Spreading outwards and changing...
February 13, 2012)
The grizzly is bare. Run for your life, its coming right here. The grizzly is bare. Brown and furry. Giant and scary. The grizzly is bare. Bare enough to tear you up. The grizzly is bare. If you don't hurry, good luck. The grizzly is bare. The scary, bare...
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...
2013) There was a time when the sky was Grey and there was no birds in the sky. I stayed inside and finished it. Them I fell into a deep sleep. I almost died. I miss that black train home. Woke up in a hospital. I was in a coma. Coma. I overdosed.
February 21, 2014) When I was sitting at the park, waiting for the bark. I seen your face in 2 different places and I hope to see you again. When I was sitting in the room playing with the broom, out the window I seen your face in 2 different places and I hope to see you again...
your brash words are nothing but air,
and still we lie.
you pull and you tug,
trying to trip me with the rug,
your lies are your demise,
and one day I will rise,
above it all we are champions,
but still we fall,
fall like shattered glass,
broken upon contact.
and every word...
2012) When the lights go off, eyes appear in the dark. Have no clue what they are? But I know danger. I'm no stranger to the paranormal. If your not like me, please don't panic, you're in danger. Green alley under your feet. As we watch you and times approve and make you feel...
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...
2012) Sneaky Kate. Sneaky Kate. Stealing cake (stealing cake) from the cake store for her twin daughters birthday, of course. She can't afford (can't afford) not even a dollar. She lost her job and now she steals (now she steals) and she burglarize (burglarize). Sneaky Kate...
and heather that spans and litters the high slopes of a steep, well walked fantasy, two souls in restless passion lie, silent to the eavesdrop of reason...shy to it's leering sunken eye, two stray minds with rampant dreams and lustful thoughts, entwined on a blanket spread in...
2012) Look at Mickey Mouse dancing for no reason while in Hollywood. People stare at Mickey in a negative way because the sun ain't shinnin' today. People ain't in the mood for you, Mickey. So dance on somewhere else. Mickey please. Don't make the people more irritated. "I thank...
Quiet is the wait.
One wish, one dream,
Two voices searching,
Three little words.
Dark is the sky,
Lonely is the night,
Quiet is the wait.
You only know,
And we have hope,
I can only wish.
Dark is the sky,
Lonely is the night,
Quiet is the wait.
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...
As a veil in your thoughts and dreams
Image of my red lips and red hair
Is what you remember
But no life is behind those thin eyes
While the real ones gleamed that colour
Like the rest of me
Shards tearing us apart
Or perhaps we were always torn...
April 7, 2014) Are you ready for the beginning? When times will be spinning. Making you feel dizzy. Everyday you'll be sleepy. Monsters said that I can put battery acid in your eyes. You'll wake up blind. Do worry, you won't be fine. Sheep's will be counting your sleep. And that...
made in numbers,
but alas my greatest conflict
is what the recluse encumbers.
With my heavy heart and pale skin
I am the lonely Introvert
and so I lock my mind away
to help protect my soul from hurt.
Could this be a depravity?
An immunity to myself,
with a cruel lack of...
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
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...
heard on a Christmas day. With friggles. Chinese bell heard on a Christmas day. With twinkles. Chinese gong heard on a Christmas day and brought fortune cookies. Chinese gong heard on a Christmas day to bring me. A pink card. A pink card. I opened it and it said, Marry Christian...
When I was just a lad,
I thought that life was really tough,
Although it wasn’t bad.
It seems so strange as I look back,
From the view that I have now.
I had tried to find my place in life,
But couldn’t figure how.
Things moved by so quick that I,
Could scarcely run...
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...
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...
but once again,
Elections aren’t far away.
The candidates seem to be everywhere,
As they practice what to say.
They will promise us some brighter days,
And each will promise more;
But those of us that have been around,
Have seen it all before.
The promises made have a...
and flick it into the air
I watch the drops fly, it’s essence caught by the sun as it glistens
I imagine that the drops could form someone…form you
I smile as you take shape, water becoming flesh, my lover becoming flesh.
Nature and its mysterious ways, giving you to 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...
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
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...
December 16, 2014) The carpet was plagued with hair and crumps that were left on the floor, days ago. The carpet moved towards me and grabbed my feet. It peeled off some of my rough brown akin and blood was oozing from within. Then the other corner of the floor was moving faster...
Back up a step
Take a deep breath
Love it when you hate me to death
The things I wish I had:
A powerful voice
A slender frame
A stage presence
And a "give no *****" attitude
Now everything doesn't seem like so much
Not tough enough
I bet it...
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...
until you breathe fresh air
I can feel the earth growing
It's intoxicating but it hollows me out into a dampened deteriorating tree trunk
Without your weeds entangling my wrists I could finally climb down the vines cemented to the brick walls of the house we found love in and...
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
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...
