    That ping of silence

    that takes you whole. That clash of insanity that carries you to the edge of a cliff. It’s in those last few moments that you realize that this was your destiny. Being able to have freedom was never a part of it. There comes a time when you question everything. You try your...

    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...

    Motions

    My little shorty. Years

    since i last saw him Years since i accost him last. I used to give him my time, my love and my heart. Never once did he welcome, did he even acknowledge me. But that was years ago. That was many moons ago. Too many for my to count. Too many for you to remember

    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 softly there My lips they trace her gentle curves They make her arch and swear While fingers brush and pinch and...

    Our EP Gesture Dance

    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...

    As I was walking with my dog last

    Who am I kidding? Two weeks have spanned

    since I saw you last, And I almost have come to believe That I'm no longer at the mercy of my pointless crush, No longer my heart do I deceive. I love you as a friend, (I've been telling myself), but that's as far as it goes. I tell myself I am now immune to that which caused...

    AN OLD MAN’S FLAG (c) 2015 by Edward York.

    The old man sat on his porch each day, As he rocked away in his chair. And the flag that he always proudly flew, Was waving ripples in the air. The flag he flew was ragged now, Having used it through the years, It held some memories from his past, And even held some tears...

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. 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 To cut...

    NEVER (c) 2015 by Edward York Your life ended

    when you were young, And you never got to be. So many things you never had, And never got to see. Even though protected as much we could, You never had a chance. To walk the halls with friends at school, Or ever find romance. You never smelled a flower, Or watched a bird in...

    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.

    Your hands on my body, Stroking me. Your lips on my breasts, My stomach and thighs. Joy in my heart, With loud happy sighs. The thing that I crave Is a kiss at my core. You open me up, And want to do more. Inside I swell, so wet and tight, You move inside me Feeling so...
