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...
who looked just like an angel. As she walked toward me, I smiled & wondered what a beautiful girl like her could want with a guy like me. As she approached me, I began to see past her beauty & focus on her heart. She looked really hurt emotionally. As we looked at each other...
at times spoken not a word, fools that can not bear it will give you the bird, it's a shame they do not care, but ignoring it will lead to despair, for if ignorance can be bliss there is no purer example than this. People don't want to admit things: their fears, their tears, the...
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...
It never rightfully belonged to me
But I wanted it nonetheless,
So when you were distracted and couldn’t see
I took it, I confess.
I thought that it might take a while
For you to realize your mistake,
And though I felt guilty in my guile
I held it close, for love’s sake...
a new player entered the game
She's the world's first blonde, air-headed vampire
Her eyes burn in the night like a flame
You won't hear her slip in your window
For she can move like a piece of the night
But if your room is filled with bright baubles
She's distracted and...
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...
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...
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?
How could two newly wedded lovers
Take on this world, so rough?
Owning nothing but a cup of change
And a small, sparkling ring
United together, a
beautiful song they sing
Sweet little melody,
Carry us far, far away
For tomorrow, my dear
Is a brand new day!
once I've realized
My undying wish
To be loved and to love
Not but just a dream
I have seen much life
Where there used to be screams
Blood running wild and free
It's amazing what we believe
Components in a giant machine
We are all peasants, but equal to royalty
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...
(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 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...
My soul had given up the fight
When dreams clashed with reality
On that strange, surreal night
I was deep inside the forest
In an ancient, sacred place
Large silver drops of mercury
Were streaming over my face
The planet with the seven rings
Was of a deep magenta...
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...
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 breath of what couldn't be
How it yearns to be on the lips of a careless breeze
To be swallowed in darkness
caged behind teeth and set free
To live again, the moment it's fulfilled
tossed between the sculptors of words
Placed in memory
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...
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...
humanity like waves
Carrying us out to deep water
Floating or sinking into murky depths.
'Floating through life' sounds luxurious
Beautiful for a time, with clear blue sky and bright yellow sun
With wide black expanse and glowing pale moon.
Time passes and I long for the green...
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
Grandma's here for you. She has a hug and some kisses too. Her gentle glance warms me up. Her soft lips touch her cup. She has years worth of stories for me. For the day I open up and truly see. Her hand touches mine, and away she rubs. Her hair is the color of a baby bear cub...
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...
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...
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...
for the head
Another for the heart
To jump up out of bed
Or sleep from dawn to dark?
To watch a blue bird singing
Or scream and screech and scare?
To leave the phone a-ringing
Or talk and feel and care?
To finish your dessert
Or only take a bite?
To wear your favorite shirt...
once perched, right on my knee
She pled, Paw-paw tell of the pancake tree
Sit still my pet, don't be a twister
I'll tell the tale once you call for your sister
Now with my lap full of granddaughter
I'll start the tale that was told me by otter
Long ago, when the world was...
Your eyes reflect my desire
This is a game no one can win
I need you in my arms to keep me sane
Touching you will ease my pain
Make me touch you
I can’t do it on my own
Dreams of pressing up against you
To feel your release and hear you moan
Fantasies in my head...
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...
that guy who's there
When things go down, down, down
When they've been down that long,
You just can't bear
To see this life go on.
My mind, my heart, my soul -
Giv'n at moment's notice;
To find the road you thought you'd lost.
That road makes people happy -
The good, the bad...
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...
Hope y'all like it.
I had nothing left but hope
In the dark of night
That my length of rope
Had no end in sight
It led me to a place
With a fragrant breeze
Sunlight flooded this space
And put my mind at ease
What I always dreamed of
In the depth of my...

her face floats in a sea of dark hair,
but beyond all that
is something greater.

and I think it's alright
suicide and misery
walk hand in hand
as daylight fades..

they were poor

To describe how I feel
A million come to mind
Our history is long
Our time has been short
Love and loss
Rolled into one

When I think of you
My mind screams
With the wasted time
My path was...
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...
morning dove at dawn
with tender breath trilled over soft morning lips.
The downy wait of a lover's response in the creamsicle breeze
left lonely and echoed. I am not the coldness of the universe.
The dark poverty of the vacuum in your songs has dried my wells.
Love is a...

I have to concentrate.
This is important, this poem.
A poem about poetry.
I have to do this, I CAN do this.
Oh, look, a butterfly!
I love butterflies. So pretty, so…
WAIT, Concentrate, Darn it!
OK, this poem, here we go.
I think that I shall never see….
I love the sea, and...
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
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...
Hiding your secrets.
I'm dragged into your nightfall.
Glimpse of passion.
Your eyes know your beauty.
I wonder how they close slowly
Exposing your neck
With your sensual blackness
Raining down your back.
that winter has hardened over the years.
I can give you no shade and my leaves haven't come back.
You are full of hope with a song in your heart. You have color on your wings and so much left to fly. Happiness is what you are and I can't even hold you.
Tomorrow when you soar...
are all worth completing
There are ones who forget
In the fray of distant tremors
The sound of sirens gone off
Left behind somewhere in time
Are moments we look back and scoff
At the when and whatever may it be
Open our eyes to see what we don't like
Still the scars present on...
arise thoughts of you.
Before the birds begin their songs and long four legged shadows walk the shed rows, my coffee's steam evokes a memory of you.
On chilly mornings as the sweat of loins steam the air , the silhouette of a thin framed gallop girl transports me a million...
this thing called sleep is becoming a disease ridden blight, the crops of discord are being sown, people's true faces being shown at long last. No time to think of the past, we have to act fast, lest we become lost amidst the chaos and lies for which many an innocent man dies...
