    Deeper Stranger.

    Deeper Stranger. 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 wrote this for my girl.

    She loved it. I thought I'd share it. *Happy Heart* Whenever I touch ur soft face, Or when u pull me close into ur embrace, My happy heart is complete, There is always something u do, To cause it to skip a beat, Ur body teaches me something new. Ur eyes r beautiful I get...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    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, taunting, pleasing and in it's recourse I lay...

    When tears fall An angel is born But

    when when life crawls A demon is home A life that can't be changed A time where we will wait Which are you Were you there when tears fall Were you there when life crawls There is always a way To be both and yet the same

    Motions

    As she bathes, he watches.

    I wrote this for my lover: Oceans When I met

    you I instantly knew I needed to dip my fingers into the oceans in your eyes. I needed to put my arms, toes, all my limps and my torso and even my head into the oceans of your eyes to uncover just some of the mysteries below. Sometimes I would just plunge in without thought...

    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 haunts my dreams You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...

    You crushed me under your weight but I didn't

    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...

    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...

    Scary Wears Boots Dance in the darkness.

    So alive amid dying light, Embraced by the night, Illuminate with unseen bliss. The earth is your canvas. Scary, yet I’ve no fear. From afar I see slow dancing: On haunted soil, frolicking In ragged dress with messy hair, Awkward steps oh, so dear. Remove your cozy boots...

    I've had this dream before The one that's told

    in 4/4 time. With the lonely girl dressed in fury Who killed the chorus with a line. And every time I have it I wake up feeling numb Like everything familiar Was a song for me she sung. I try and grasp to memories Of this dream and others to But these, my hands have atrophied...

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    Threads Of Ourselves

    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...

    A room with a door, that stays unopened,

    while I'm on the floor, I sit by myself A lamp within reach that is left turned off, the darkness can teach, it is what I know A favorite song, that is still unheard, it just feels so wrong, it might make me think A brilliant sunset, that's never been seen, just one more...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    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...

    U send a chill down my bare legs,

    Inside my heart begins to quicken. My body and soul start to beg, Than your tongue explores my hard budded breast licking. Ur lips soft, warm, inviting, U trace my face, forehead, eyelids and jaw. Everything else has gone away, My body has lost the ability to fight, I'm in...

    Short story: She stands outside of the

    house. The house where everything began. The woman glares at it, the broken windows, the ashed wood where a fire had swept through a few years ago. She shakes her head in disgust, turning and walking silently into the night, where she truly belongs.
