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
so ingrained it plagues all the nations
One concerning life and living
Which focuses not on taking
But on giving
We, the masters of this world
Are doomed to watch as it unfurls
Not out of punishment, not out of spite
But for the ignorance of what is right
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...
Talk like one too,
I am one, I know,
But you tell me I'm cool,
And knowing this pains me so,
When I **** up it's me who you'll sue,
I am a toxic person,
I've known my whole life,
I am a bomb ticking away,
And I know every day it worsens,
Though people insist they'll stay, they...
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...
The old man sat on his porch each day,
As he rocked away in his chair.
And the flag that he always proudly flew,
Was waving ripples in the air.
The flag he flew was ragged now,
Having used it through the years,
It held some memories from his past,
And even held some tears...
that flower because at first glance the flower seemed like it was dead.but somehow i was fortunate enough to see that the flower just needed to be watered.so i watered the flower.until it became vibrant and lively again. all the people in town started to talk about that...
cant talk about you though 7 years its been
It hurts so much
But i hide the pain away
The cuts stay unseen
Your beautiful face
Stuck in a wooden frame
Behind that glass
How am i still sane
Loosing you nearly killed me
Im surprised I'm still here
To walk another day...
path I take
Goes with me too
I can work alone
And think it is fun
To start a task
And see it done
I can sleep alone
For once I'm there
My dreams will take
I can stand alone
And face the fight
I will not run
If I know I'm right
But love alone
I can not do
(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
that takes you whole. That clash of insanity that carries you to the edge of a cliff. It’s in those last few moments that you realize that this was your destiny. Being able to have freedom was never a part of it. There comes a time when you question everything. You try your...
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...
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...
You we're smiling,
No longer in pain.
I couldn't understand why,
Or why it had to be this way,
As you made your way to the clouds,
I held on to your lifeless body and cried, I could finally say I've loved and I've lost, till this day I still wonder what your doing, and...
since i last saw him
Years since i accost him last.
I used to give him my time,
my love and my heart.
Never once did he welcome,
did he even acknowledge me.
But that was years ago.
That was many moons ago.
Too many for my to count.
Too many for you to remember
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...
Help you through struggles, heartbreak and strife
I'll always be here when you need to cry
Shower you with love and affection until those cheeks turn dry
Love unconditional, my true love
You give me me such strength to rise above
Youll own my heart even after I grow old and...
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...
it to my face
I wont let you see these tears
That i cry everyday
You destroy my confidence
You shout at me
You tell me you don't love me
You constantly make me weak
You break me everyday
Whe you lie to my face
I try to tell myself to be strong
But the pain wont go away
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 many things.
A protector, a mentor and friend.
She gives you guidance till you know your way,
And nurtures from beginning to end.
She provides you with meals from your very first bite,
And feeds you till you’re on your own.
She teaches you values like honesty and trust...
everything but you never seemed to listen, every heart beat she had wasn't ever chosen but given
She gave her all she really did but her world had a tendency to only end with a fall
Tears roll down those eyes...
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...
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...
working on for quite some time.... I'd like to see what you guys think...
"... And the pain has aged me like fine wine
In time, I'll find the courage to love again
A new beginning for every end
For love without exception
yields a love that exceeds every expectation...
Dragged down below, bleeding in the dirt...
Eyes full of hate, heart cold as ice
Room so silent you could hear the mice
Silent sighs fill the air
Face full of beauty they say but I say where?
Frozen thoughts of the past
How much longer will I last.
Chained up love...
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
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...
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...
they are plenty.
The sorrows of life are but few;
But the sorrows just take all our energy,
No matter the good that we knew.
We don’t always take time to be happy,
It just seems too easy to be sad.
We too often punish for goodness,
And praise those who want to be bad.
I wanted to show him off, take him with me, show the world he is mine. I wanted everyone to stare and wonder where you could find someone like him. I loved him the way you love your first own car. He was not perfect or the best looking guy but I loved that. I was addicted to his...
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?
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
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 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...
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...
shivers as cold fingers strokes through her hair
She's at a café at the end of an unknown street
where the only sounds are the echoes of invisible feet
A shadowy bird glued to the sky
lonely girl remembers how it was to fly
She's a neon butterfly with no wings...
