because they have taxed me
It never ends a cycle who's path never bends
I guess a slave we will always be?
I see pain
police terrorizing in the streets
It will always come like the Florida rain
Children of the victims I hear them, they weep
Handcuffing a bleeding dead...
.. Max Richter
It's April and the murmur of the earth
Awakening resonates underfoot.
The furze gorse is growing and blooming,
On lowlands and along the ridges
Of mountain tracks and back roads
High up to tree line on heather filled mountains,
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...
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,
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
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...
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...
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?
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
working last night
turn the smoldering log
add the kindling
bring the embers up to fire
a history is developed
by living in the present
by reliving yesterday
dance to unseen
joys and sorrows
music from living life
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...
longed for your touch
Where were you
I wanted to give up
You should've been there
To shelter my heart
From this world full of sin
Where do i begin
She gets beaten
And pushed around
He gets shoved
And kicked to the ground
A little life
Didn't even get to start
A stupid act
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
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
Roses are dull
violates are dying,
you say we dont care
but yet i am crying.
just fades away,
im left behind
we want you to stay.
In my eyes
im holding back tears,
scared and in pain
from all the past years.
We all care alot
we dont want you to go,
i try and stop you...
and my blade
ill.start.with sum tiny ones
theyll heal in a day.
then ill cut deeper
following my veins
blood running free
selfish as i am
thimking of nothing
me and my razor
best friends we are
freeing the pain of another day
all this depression
i cant cope
this is why...
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...
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...
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...
rise and fall with your breasts; as your heart pounds in your chest. Its gentle beats lulling me to rest. Your skin on my skin like a gentle caress. Your tresses wild and splayed all over my chest, no make up on is when you look best. I wanna lay with you forever and no less...
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...
There is a red ribbon
Waiting for the moment when
You say yes,
Breath on your abdomen,
Of bodies deep.
Window open in spring,
Wind light and low
And the half light of sundown,
To take the...

Fumbling with their thoughts
A few fragments but distorted
What are those syllables, but
Nothing more than contorted
Still head held high
Feeling proud for not thinking
Narcissist at his finest
Who could not fathom blinking
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...
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...
smile and face of stubble.
It's been hard, I can't find motion
Little hope and lost devotion.
I'm here in a silent state,
my pen is moving to explain my fate.
It's my doing this dreary mood,
I'll find solace in excess food.
Sadness of heart and mind,
Hope for love, hope for...
In the dark harsh weather.
In the bracken and heather.
In the long howling night.
Their howl last up to the first light.
Their eyes as bright as lasers.
Their teeth as sharp as razors.
Fixing their prey with an icy glare,
Their body covered in warm hair...
No fear or shame instilled in me
Exploration of smiles and soft laughter
Bright lights and naps I wonder what's after
Discovering my feet they crawl and walk
My mouth unlimited it can actually talk
My hands move things more than ever before
Wanting to do so much...
Each time I sleep, my dreams
are filled with blood of
the innocence and dammed.
My sight clouded with shadows of
the past, I don’t know
where to turn, and I keep
running even though I’m going
to a cliff I can not
stop and I don’t know
who to ask...
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...
so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...
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...
the rapture of words is short lived
and passes by like a swift summer rain
filled with glorious life yet to be lived
with promise of tomorrows never ending sunshine
all in the briefest of moments
captured by the heart like a photograph
distilled joy in the frame of...
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...
as you jump off
Knowing it will end your life
Looking around at your surroundings, to see the beautiful lights
You hear the wind rushing past your ears
Like angels, whispering you'll be fine
You feel the air hold your body as you fall more
