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...
for you just keeps growing,
With every day that has past.
I know for sure my love for you,
Is the kind of love that last.
I see your face when I first wake,
And again when I fall to sleep.
Your image is one that I will cherish,
It is one that I can keep.
My body aches in...
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...
had a problem
He just was not very mean
He liked to wear fancy colors
And he always kept his clothes clean
At troll school he fell way behind
When they wanted to practice attacks
For Timmy's growl was not fierce
And he'd rather be handing out snacks
Demerits for having...
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...
Your armor shines and glistens upon the sun
Your helmet glows brilliant gold and silver
Your face illuminates the radiance of love
Your eyes delve deep into the world and universe
Crisis and desire conflict in one spectacle
Damnation upon you and I forfeit our lives
Your halo and...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
Nobody plays dead like the ones you fear
They've taken steps to find who we all are
Calling the shots until we've reached afar
Nobody asked to be alone,
Though sometimes solitude is home
Underground in our little world
No ordinary boys and girls
Black, blue, red, green...
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
I love the color blue.
It’s the color of my shoe,
When it was really new.
And when I think of you
I see the color blue.
Your eyes play peek-a-boo
When you come into view.
You took me to the zoo
To see the caribou
And silly looking gnu.
That night at my curfew
I leaned in...
The winds of time erode away
The memories of our past,
Leaving us with shadowy thoughts
That disappear too fast.
And so we cling with all our might
And try to hold them near,
All the things for which we care,
And those that we hold dear.
No matter how much we try to cling...
Staring at your hair is somehow a blast. You turn around to stretch your back. I get a mini heart attack. Our eyes meet and you throw me a smile. That image is in my head for quite awhile. The teacher stops talking and it's just you and me. Away we work on our chemistry. Our...
what validates your claim
to be called a human
is it your fat bank account
or impressive portfolio of shares
maybe it is your head knowledge
or your ego crowned with a prestigious...
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...
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...
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...
I highly appreciate feedback. Thank you !
🍃Portrait of Us
I expected nothing & everything
Carrying what was left of you
I will always be here
Will you never relinquish your soul
For the sake of, whatever.
Surrender to me...
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...
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,
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
Lost is the graveyard of demon
Hardly a hole where miseries arise
A drudgery of a perfect Purgatory
--Rarely living,merely existing
Cursed for a tedious story
Fairy tales become ancestral heirlooms
For Guilded thrones bleak and ruined by desolation
I Roam in emptiness...
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...
reflection on the surface
sapphire depths growing darker
light caressing the surface
drawing dancing shadows
beckoning the unknown
further and further it takes you
a breathless world
where ambiance is alive
but you, are dead
A barrier to most, secure, impenetrable
A fortress defended both day and night
The obstructions infatiguable
This precious woman, fair and slight
Out of nowhere, stumbled on this place
Released the bonds with all her might
Walked on in with all her grace
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 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...
Sunlight fading with breaking ties,
Under a single rock waits the endless time,
Thrown away like a petty crime,
Nighttime never comes to pass,
Eyes glazed over with melting glass,
Gazing out lonesome windows,
Emptiness that still grows,
Caught in the...

No set path or memories to gather,
Etched into a dampened day,
Beauty lost in the worlds way,
Among the withered, broken and frail,
A soul survivor to tell the tale,
No sun to guide the life needed,
Only the rain to create the unneeded,
Disconnected from time...
(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
Say all the men
Heretofore and today;
All the men I see they say,
“’Tis love indeed.”
Not a one would he speak
Of harmony the wise ones seek,
Or those wrought with iron animus,
To bear and forbear.
Naught they say,
“’Tis love indeed,
Avails all the needs
and dreams always came true,
if money were no object
there'd be so much to do...
If only time could stand still
when all was going great,
if only we were masters
of both our lives and fate.
If only everyone could smile,
at everyone they met.
If only we could wake each day
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...
Closed the door to let those feelings fly,
Remarks of venom and smiles made fake,
It is a way of life, not a mistake,
Minds wide open yet some nailed shut,
Trapped within the society and stuck in a rut,
Arms held wide for the accepted,
These are the bonds that keeps...
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
Eyes wide open, yet some too late,
Walls built high with no escape,
Fixated on the blurring shape,
Horizon comes but never seen,
Simple paths within a dream,
Spiraling lies and twisted nets,
Captured in a world of dark regrets,
Burning pavements with scorching hearts...
“Why, Mama do I deserve to die”?
I shake my head and hold him close
While the tears fill up in my throat
Baby I say as I look him in his eye
You don’t deserve to die and I can’t answer your question why
He is so heartbroken, confused and filled with dread
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...
Don’t worry -
Your state will feed you
Don’t worry -
Your church will feed you
Don’t worry -
Your relatives will feed you
Don’t worry -
Because you will be fine
Don’t worry -
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...
that pierce the ear,
Memories haunting with every fear,
Hearts crushing in lonely pain,
Prices paid and monsters gain,
Tragic falls as the way to describe,
Yet these scars are becoming hard to hide,
Knives shinning, giving breath,
Simple torture for a death,
A endless cycle set to remain,
No heart to beat at the site of love,
Only a demon searching above,
From a feather that flows down light,
Now it turns heavy without flight,
Perception and observation comes from within,
Yet these eyes will only see sin,
Hand prints on the...
endless buzz of words that clutter and crash against my skull and still they do not flow.
A thousand diffrent meanings and phrases that simply never bubble to the surface, but crash and burn around me like ambers off a fresh fire.
I try to extinguish them, try to swat and...
