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
Some sped through without slowing down
Some hurt my heart
Some healed my heart
Some turned my heart upside down
You saw my heart
You touched my heart
You cared enough to say
"I'll hold your hand
I'll hold your heart
Trust me, I am here to stay"
Im sick of your twisted game,
Lies upon lies, all the words you say,
Tell me when you give up the play,
Against this monster Im no fighter,
Picked up the knife, flicked the lighter,
Shapes and people only I can see,
All the voices that follow me,
Dressed in white...
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...
Your armor shines and glistens upon the sun
Your helmet glows brilliant gold and silver
Your face illuminates the radiance of love
Your eyes delve deep into the world and universe
Crisis and desire conflict in one spectacle
Damnation upon you and I forfeit our lives
Your halo and...
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...
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...
Its a hatred, someone please come home,
Sick and tired of this trembling fear,
Its a paranoia I hold too dear,
A hearts that been wasted,
Had love, I never realised how bitter it tasted,
Betrayel and broken,
What of those promises that were spoken,
Its twisted to think back...
tears roll down my eyes
my lover didn't come, my beloved didn't come..
seeing the glow of the eyes,
tears roll down my eyes..
I went mad without you, come o my love,
all the rain flowed away, nothing stayed in my heart,
seeing the glow of eyes,
tears roll down my eyes..
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...
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 happened [stumbled] upon her one day,
Clad in a muddied dress, in disarray.
Damsel why on this floor dost thou lie?
Reply, "I am alive? I am ali-"
Deaden thy waggling tongue fair maid
Such babble thou speweth forth! Her mumblings fade.
I have but one request to...
at a song. It's kind of iffy but whatever haha.
I looked you in the eyes and when I did
I fell into the pit and for days I was gone
But I was rescued by my love and that flame will not go out
But only burns brighter as the days go on.....
You hunted me until I was weak
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...
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...
( He )doesn't care of what we think..
Yes, my daddy loves his drink.
He's been the same since I was five,
Yes, he loves his drink more than his wife..
It hurts..to see my mom cry all night.
I hear him shout everyday,
I've been caught in the game of love & hate..
You have cried when you were alone.
Some cried for freedom, some cried for life,
Some cried for love and some cried for wife.
This is not the first time you have laughed,
This is not the last time you will cry.
You have lived and laughed and cried before,
But you still don't...
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’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,
You always surprise me,
with all that you do.
from running through the rain
(and how fast you flew!)
to your bee killing methods,
and your laughing at danger,
not to mention your sudden
but quickly ending bouts of anger.
You appear out of nowhere,
just when I'm most...
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...
Mom just died I can't lose you
I know death is only natural
But I cannot bear the thought of loneliness
I cannot bear the thought of losing you
Why must you suffer slowly
Why could it not be quick
As I sit there at your bedside crying
I cannot comprehend what I feel
(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...
Heaven: Invest Now!
"Heaven is a great long term investment! To get in, all you have to do is make some minor payments, consisting of: a down payment of belief, a daily payment of faith and a final payment of death. With those small payments, you get to spend an eternity in...
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
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 am who you seek,
yet I am stronger than need be.
dance and dance,
twirl in the moonlight,
oh how you jest!
and take me as your own.
but do you have what it takes?
to fill this empty space?
a king of my heart,
a king who rules by my side.
oh how you jest,
and fight with...
And completely mad
I'll stare at my phone waiting for you
A text a message a how are you
I bide my time saying I'm lonely
But that's a lie and oh so phony
Why I must care about this guy
A random I know isn't mine
He's cute seems nice
So I'll roll the dice...
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...
into my eyes
And those promises you make to never pass by,
The gentle touch that you make my love; that comes from the deepest gorge of your hear..
Is as beautiful as you are.
From morn till evening, we've no time to rest.
No summer , no winter , love springs all the year...
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...
who are you to serve?
you are but a man of good grace.
despair and lies,
oh how you jest!
untamed is I,
no time for senseless matters,
my duty is to protect,
this country is under burden,
and oh how you jest!
unguided and bold are you,
to play such foolish games...
I sat alone
And tried to think,
Of words so grand,
To put in ink.
The words came slow,
No cutesy rhymes,
No expressed desire.
No lover’s song,
No wrong to right.,
No erotic rhyme,
To fill the night.
I could not find...
my one and only.
I could find you when things got lonely.
When I was lost and afraid,
You were there to reassure me everything's okay.
When everyone around me became cruel and hateful,
You were there, always still faithful.
It felt like everything kept crashing down...
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...
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...
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 the wet evening
And the warm rain
Testing the air
I can lean up against the street
And watch all the shops
observe but do not remark
us slow creatures
in the dark drizzle...
broken and demanding,
her cries waking you.
you long to hold her,
to make her smile,
and yet you know you cant,
because she is taken.
lies and pain,
a fearful delay,
her eyes so bright,
with tears that shine.
you miss her so,
and wish she'd come home,
but you know its...
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
as this is my kingdom,
and you are my royal jest.
the knights are bold,
my heart is cold,
and anger is fierce and brooding.
be my guest,
and thaw the frozen heart in my chest,
and save me from all the pain.
bold yet cold,
a warriors throne,
and a palace made of...
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...
parent is immeasurable.
So much so, that it could be said that a child is the personification of a parent’s love.
The love is so strong, that should it be taken, we may not survive without it…
A love so strong that, should it be lost, so too would a part of our very soul...
