(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
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,
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.
Remember what they say
All i remember
Is that terrible day
It was june
And you slipped away
Missing you hurts deeply
Cant you see
Its tearing me to shreds
Inch by inch
Tearing me up
They watch me burn
Laughing at me
And making fun
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...
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 knew better
I put myself in this position
Just when I think I'm winning
I start losing
This game called love
It's so confusing
A vicious cycle with no conscience
No remorse, I made my choice
I sacrificed my heart
Was torn apart by feelings I let loose
It's a noose...
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 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...
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...
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...
A shining product of a fallen star.
Not to be mistaken as the one we seek,
A reflection of him, that tends the weak.
Brought to see with Omniscient power.
Activation within, the lotus flower.
Peace of mind, and piece of it all.
Piece of Universe, Never to fall.
the many things you had to say
How you prayed with all your heart
When your life was torn apart
As you stumbled in the dark along the way
I saw you cry the tears of Bethlehem
I heard you sing a haunting requiem
But you still did not know why
Each and every man must die
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
Is it truly true that I am limited by me? If I could paint a picture without saying it 'twas I, where would I dare put myself in days not yet passed by?
What medium would I use, a pencil or a pen? What of marks I did not mean, what would I do then? Do I leave it all to chance...
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
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...
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...
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
memories never fail to flow,
Back to when you were small;
To toys scattered on the floor,
And crayon on the wall.
I remembered all the questions asked,
On trips with just us two,
Like why is the water wet,
And why the sky is blue.
Those times we had were simple times,
here in anticipation
Déjà vu is setting in.
The past keeps flashing by me,
As I upgrade to Windows ten.
I have seen this kind of thing before,
Upgrades are nothing new.
I started many years ago,
Running MS-Dos two.
I have often fought the upgrades,
I have even threw some...
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...
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
words that an amateur writer forces into stanzas. words that a confused teenager scribbles into their lit textbook. words that a social worker whispers to her sick wife.
a description of how heavy my chest felt when our song came on. a description of how the violent tide...
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
scratch from the bleeding quill
torn from the wings of flightless dreams
and dipped in fantasy's brimming well
where expression is the fresh carrion
in a dream's possession, gripped
by the talons of raven raged nights;
and the ink I spilt over these crumpled sheets
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...
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...
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...
..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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
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.
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...
to wake up and spread your bright and colourful wings,The time has come to explore this vast amazing world and and see what the new dawn brings.Please fly free lil one, no longer do you have to keep your feet firmly to this tree,The sky is now your branches and they are as high...
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,
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...
Despite the rythym, reason, or rhyme.
Opening the eye of wisdom and truth,
Beginning and end, game of my youth.
Conceiving FOREVER, through life & death,
Not impossible, focus on breath.
All knowledge passed through genes,
Expressing labation on the minds' screen.
