hands I held today,Brought to my face a smile.And any troubles I may have had,Left me for a while.Even though you are short right now,In emotions you are tall.Possessing a great big growing heart,In a body that is small.I watched you try to make a choice,As your mind began to...
to me he speaks
The gentleness of his solitude
Grief and contentment
in his hands lie
Transparencies of love lost
barefaced in his eyes
Unyeilding strength he lends
in veiled moonlit glow
and ardent adjurations
melt slowly in his snow
In passing my...
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...
but knows only your name !
never a day without arousing you, but we lack earnestness!!
we pretend in such a way as if you are our impute !!!
but still you are great,never left us unaccompanied !!!
Memories of your written words
I smile and turn to face my empty bed
I close my eyes and see you there
So handsome i see you so clear
Your secret smile just for me
I want to fly away with you,
To a world that doesn't fit us here.
A whole new world that just
You and I exist...
Coldness strikes, a vicious debate.
Judgmental world, of past no more,
Dying perspective, losing allure.
Trouble sleeping, painful awake,
Desiring more, make no mistake.
Twisted path to journey's end,
Skeletons closet, makes no amends.
Passion for living, questioning dead...
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...
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
so long I've been a broken machine
matching society stab for stab as we cut me open
I'm just an enforcer of laws they've pounded in your brain
but this is society and we're to scared to stray
all these words are turning my head in to a traffic jam with all the words i never...
Check out my strong verbs!
Dig my quotation marks, they're loaded with detailed jargon.
Say, you have some great exclamation points,
Can I be your indirect object?
You may accuse me of using crude superlatives, suffice it to say,
My language is unbiased and suitable for...
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...
Slander be more than lies
Could statues be more than stone
A king be worth more than his throne
They think when it doesn't hurt
We mean that it's much worse
Shoot us in the chest again
One more day if we pretend
You'll be seeing headlines
It's all we ever dreamed
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...
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,
heard the sounds of laughter,
And seen the flow of tears.
I have felt the comfort of understanding,
That comes from many years.
Sometimes it takes a journey,
For understanding to be found.
And to know the path that is meant for us,
To keep us planted on the ground.
children admire them in excitement
This is going to be fun!
Alive, the inhabitants fill the seats that swirl and swing them
I look down at the dirt as it's just a temporary outdoor amusement
Remembering how dark it was
How lifeless before the power
turned on, filling every...
thought I was
Turns out I have a breaking point
I guess everyone does
Hers is the stress
Of pleasing everyone
His is the pain
Of loosing a loved one
Mine is different
It doesn't seem right
But mine is myself
It's pretty Black and white
I am broken down
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...
to be me. Let me become everybody, so I will be able to feel good about my sanity. I feel I am blind, bound by shackles. “Let me go!” What has a hold of me? All I desire is love, something I can observe in others. This is why I hate to see my reflection; because it’s a...
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...
(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
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...
Your love gives me a magic reaction
Leaving me short of breath
With just a word my inhibitions all melt
Undressing each layer of my soul
Being bare naked before you without any hold
As an open book I am standing before you
My life is yours no matter what you do...
Silent without a sound
But you see
Grim he wasn't found
Grim is a man
Made of skulls and bones
He does his work
On his own
Touching a person
Taking him with him
To that place
Where they make a decision
Heaven or hell
Go straight up
Never go down
Grim takes away...
As a veil in your thoughts and dreams
Image of my red lips and red hair
Is what you remember
But no life is behind those thin eyes
While the real ones gleamed that colour
Like the rest of me
Shards tearing us apart
Or perhaps we were always torn...
I thought I knew you better
Spending a life time together.
Only to come and realize
You are a stranger to me.
Have you learned nothing?
You're in dark, turbulent waters now.
Not knowing which star to follow
The Northern Star had guided you
To safer and calm seas.
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...
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...
yearned for it's sweet fruit and open blossom...
watched you walk in beauty...
lay with you in naked passion
as the soft unfiltered light caressed,
and kissed the rising of your breasts,
and with every sigh my passion swelled
as I sought your comfort in a dream...
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,
I rush back to sign on,
To see if he's already up.
The "Sign In" is complete,
Today begins anew,
I gesture "Good Morning...
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...
Cowardly spirited in that plain cage
Ferociously tame in wild fields
You have no name
Stealing secrets from fragile frauds
Quit your lying and confess
Don't taunt my patience
Even the gentle goat roars louder
Turning into the raging Ram
When its Devils gloat...
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...
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 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
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?
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...
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...
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...
as your sign of smile..
the cool off from the moon is just
fractional,in your presence before me..
the flame of fire is just miniscule
in-front of your warm hug to reduce my chillness..
what else can i say,I NEED YOU more
than the elements of world........
[I dedicate to...
the clearing between the trees,
And stared out at the lake.
The orange glow that was reflecting there,
Made me glad I was awake.
The air was crisp but the day was calm.
There was still a trace of fog.
The smell of smoke danced all around,
As the fire made coals out of a log.
back into my dreams.
Like an unwanted ghost
Haunting my nights
Haunting my dreams.
You use others to do your bidding.
With promises of love and affection.
They say you miss me
But I know that's not true,
Because when I needed you most
I no longer desire your...
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...
