Stalking - 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...
Each and Every Night - 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 many times you sat there, indifferent to my pain.
Is most of the world like you?
Do they only want the things they can take from you?
Unwilling to help you sort...
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...
I dreamt of you last night. I dreamt that you were mine and that I held your hand as we walked across summer's fields together. Sunlight graced your beautiful face and your long...
"bread of the mind"
she breaks the bread of her mind
and hand feeds it to her child
its young eyes look at her with
the bitter food of her deviant thought...
When your around you make me feel so full
When we talk you make me feel complete
When your gone I feel so empty and alone
So tell me how you feel tell me what you want
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...
Aggggghhhhh! - When you lay in bed,
Frustration running through your head,
You want to reach out and touch,
This is all way too much
My mind would not have such a fight,
I am not beautiful,
Nor am I ugly,
Simple, plain, ordinary
I am not a genius,
Nor am I dumb,
Simple, plain, ordinary
I am not memorable,
Nor am I invisible,
Feeling clingy and lost
Wanting to feel secure
Chasing my dream for a center
Where new moist life sprouts from
A shoulder to rest...
The Mask - 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...
Garden... - 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...
I wrote this a while back for someone special.
I read it once in a while if I forget how special they are.

"she is a poem in my dreams"
golden highlights in her hair
she is a poem in my dreams
written in the shadows of the world
filled with gentle light that is my world
she sat with me...
Each of us have a rhythm.A very unique rhythm that beats a tune in our hearts.We, an instrumentplay a tune as we walk, as we speak creating a melody.Only when we are quiet we...
Our EP Gesture Dance -
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,
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...
Dear Lost Friend, Please Come Back Home.
The thought of you leaving me has passed through my mind a lot.
Why you did what you did.
A lot of people miss you and want you back home...
Will To Fight - 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...
The sound of her voice echoed in my dreams.. Nor had I heard it but it was so sweet..
Her laughter developed a smile on my lips.. Her face reflected what my heart...
A Sunny Day In Thalamus - 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...
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...
"the silhouette of two girls kissing"
the silhouette of two girls kissing
deep into the caress
deep into the tender
like they are plundering with feather light touches
I express my daily situations and emotions through poetry
Motions - Open, close,
the door swings its motions
the air rushes through
the cycle it seems
But where is
what makes it new?
All I want is an easy life.
One not ended by a butcher knife.
Is it so hard to ask for?
Only in my dreams do I soar.
Simplicity isn't enough anymore.
All I want is to blend in...
The toxic sensation that runs through my spine, the ever great admiration it grows each day more, I doubt the humanity that ever could exist in someone like that, a dropped piece...

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...
Laurie in the water, rising constantly
up above her head, drifting unconsciously.
Along the shores the people scream and shout,
Laurie can’t hear what they’re yelling about...
for Grendel, Mr. Hyde, and all the other monster's, chained within the shadows, of our souls.
There is a monster
in my heart
that i have never met...

Roses Are Dull, Violates Are Dying. You Say We Dont Care, But Yet I Am Crying - Roses are dull
violates are dying,
you say we dont care
but yet i am crying.
She Lies Easy - 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...
ride the elevator
creaks and thuds
smells like sweat
the door hesitates
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...
I wrote for the wife on our 30th anniversary
Thirty Years Together
For Thirty years we've stood the test.
We took on the world standing side by side.
We helped each other find...
Up Upon The Mountain There - Up upon the mountain there
In his arms she quietly lay
Face pressed soft against his chest
And looked out clear across the way
All the way over...
The paths in life are everywhere,
As far as we can see.
And it is hard to pick the one,
That is the best for me.
Our false step is all it takes,
The Gates Of Heaven And Hell -
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
"a universe of warm suns"
the flower she holds
reflected in her eyes
like a sparkling jewel set in crisp blue satin
with startling loveliness and wistful kind words
it seems to me...
( Constant repeat )
Nobody knew what was going on,
Every night she wondered where it all went wrong,
Inside out she wears a costumes,
Paints a mask and runs the stage,
In Him - Today in him
I found my soul
My other half
That makes me complete
In him I see
I've been searching for
In him I know
Threads Of Ourselves -

The ups the downs the direction they make,
On a magic carpet that we made,
From threads of ourselves,and the...
You - (reposting this again...sorry :) )
you were the first one who said i looked beautiful any other way.
in those godawful thick glasses.
even if i wear my hair short.
Sun Doesn't Shine
For the past 16 years
Not a single light has shined
To take away my tears
Grey is all I see
Not bad weather really
It might be...
If Only They Spoke ... - If only they spoke ...

To tell about that hidden truth and what really goes around ..
To tell about those...
Calming sea's roll beyond our sight
Goldenrod and safron rays of light
Touch the amber dust beneath our toes
While squaks above of seagulls
Our skin meets in entwined fingers...
Not The End Of Me - 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...
The Winds Of Time - 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...

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...
Why me why me
I'm the only one around who like what I crave
Why me why me
I'm the only one around who demands what I give
Why me why me
I'm the only one around who justifies what...
