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
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...
I know this to be true.
Because I saw heaven there
when I looked at you.
A smile so pure and simple
Your inner light was flowing free
I truly saw my heaven there
When you smiled at me
when you can't sleep. It seems like you want to think of everything all at once. Your plans, your goals, your past, your debt, what will you have for lunch tomorrow.
When I was growing up, I remember being able to just be a kid. Nothing on my mind, just living for the next few...
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...
Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead.
Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again.
Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...
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...

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...
I got this! Go sit down! Go sit down! I'll check it myself. I'll check it myself. Come-boo-ga! Come-boo-ga! Shwalalalalala, magic, magic....There you have an goat. There you have an turtle.Shwallalalala
Shwa Shwa Ss-sshh-sh-sh shwalalala
Something oh so bright,
But please, let me be truthful.
Beauty reminds me of the pain,
It drives me insane!
Who could stand breaking down
When there's nothing to cause a frown?
It makes me want to suffocate
Trust me, I don't exaggerate.
Please, someone tell me...
Before the sun has warmed my fears.
Before I spend the day looking for you.
Before I try and remember what you said.
Before I swear never again.
Before I hope you call
Before I remember you won’t
I am the loneliest at night…
After the sun has left me.
You cant see the heartache
That you've put me through
Destroying me with your words
Not showing me your love
That was all id seen from you
As i was growing up
I asked you where he was
You said that he walked out
After all your lies
You still want me to be proud
For all the...
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...
(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
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
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
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,
Some way, that wound
Pulls its weight in pain
Hard touches will perplex
Ones entangled sublimely
But even in the scorching sun
It was cold, and thinking was dumb
Even the rain drop that shattered smoothly
Could not bear its sadness
Hoping to bounce back
..to be alone with you.
Alone with your night shades and dark secrets.
Alone with under the cover of a forgotten darkness.
Alone with a symphony of quiet callings and lonely sounds.
Alone with the moon as she traces her smile across the sky.
I have been waiting all day...
A reluctant witness, to a rare desert fog.
Watched a watery sun have his way with her.
She seemed submissive.
Leaving only tears on a bystanding landscape.
I do guess, soon enough, there will be nothing left of her.
I sat…and did nothing.
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...
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...
down the interstate,
White lines are passing by.
The darkness begins to fade away,
As orange fills up the sky.
The hours spent behind the wheel,
Begin to take their toll.
Windshield wipers slapping time,
To classic rock n’ roll.
The water on the pavement,
as they dragged her away.
Sat stunned with fingers through the cage…as they dragged her away.
Raced tears down by-standing faces…as they dragged her away.
Closed ears from silent screams…as they dragged her away.
We all watched…as they dragged her away.
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...
do I need to remind you?
haven't I done enough?
or do you need more?
falling to pieces,
feeling lost in the drama,
never knowing which way to turn,
feeling out of place.
when did we become strangers,
when did I lose faith?
I thought I could see,
but I guess I gave it all.
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
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...
but you are not alone
you are beautiful right down to the bone
please dont be sad
just try to smile just a tad
you are perfect in your own way
weather you are bi straight or gay
even though life aint fair
there are people out there who care
all you have to do is try
for I know I will be welcome there.
I want to cut this senseless rope, that binds me a worthless hope.
For nothing here has sent me home...
No, no I mustn't stagger from my path that chose me, for as the light hath
Brought me closer here, than anything I'd ever see in this...
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...
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
Sometimes occasions come our way,
Inspiring memories good and bad.
The occasion that is now close at hand,
Brings me memories of my dad.
The things he taught me have stayed in place,
And have become a map for me to tread.
As he told me about the things in...
You throw shots back with him like the one who left you taught.
Sometimes you catch him looking at you through heartbreak like your body is the answer to time travel,
but you never played basketball
and he was never any good.
Sometimes you throw your arms around him...
