    My Fate Apologies on repeat Like a broken

    record 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...

    Ode To A Lost Sock

    (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 my alarm...

    In Sleepless Hours

    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...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    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...

    The Mask

    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, and wait...

    Threads Of Ourselves

    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...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    Disappointment burns,

    it's a bitter feeling, You expect, you get ready, you wait. Suddenly there's nothing left, you thought you were hilling, Maybe it's Murphy, or sweet revenge, maybe just fate.

    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...

    Deeper Stranger.

    The world is dark. Voices stir the night.

    A world of difference, The voices bring light. All night Word of wonder speeds Across a barren world On their holy steeds. Might this light Use its might To stay bright Through the night -Adele T.

    I want to see your breath,

    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 found a poem I wrote back in 2013.

    Silent Warriors 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...

    Pain In These Eyes

    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? Can you...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.
