(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
secrets to be free from this world.
I can not grant you the freedom you deserve.
For i am a mere mortal with limits and concerns.
But i can give you hope of silver droplets and vision obscure.
Take you away for a second in a day.
Show you how your pretty feet used to dance in...
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...
Steady as she goes ..fluttering her wings for thee.
Tiny blue eyes with a delicate red beak.
You can barely see her, she only takes peeks.
Stretches her wings to fly, but can't actually move
Beckons for the winds, to silently improve
The willow tree dances in the fragrant...
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...
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...
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...
Flower petals floating down from the mystical skies.
The beauty & elegance of the pieces of a flower as they come to rest on the forever moving earth.
Perfection in the form of a soft delicate petal.
Easily tarnished but capable of such power in astounding beauty love...
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?
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...
sorry I wasn't good enough
I'm sorry that.....wait why the ******* am I apologizing. You know what I am sorry. Sorry that you gave up on such a prize. I'm a strong woman not a weak little girl. I fight to thrive and survive. I'm sorry you left a woman who's already at the top...
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...
as deep as mortal man's first sin
though sweet it seems, it haunts my dreams,
through passages dark and hallways
dimly lit, no lamp is fit, to help me find.
A stain, a cursed mark, a sign; a brooding fog lies over mind
On surface white, in form so innocent,
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,
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 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...
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...
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...
world's all about you?
You don't know where ive been, what ive seen or half the **** I been through.
I saw unforgiveable things from the violent background from which I came.
No matter how hard I try to forget my life just can't be the same.
Yeare of abuse I suffered in care...
I'm thinking of playing around with it but i'd like to hear your thoughts?
Clamping round my heart
It squeezes me
Like a rag
I am a husk
Limp with this pallor
An untamed snake
My blood is thick
I only ache
Tears hover like insects...
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...
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
Don't try and stop me
The sea has called me name
Tides have ceased to roll
Sails shredded to pieces
The heart of this sea was slaughtered
It's time I bid ye all a farewell.
Farewell me shipmates...
I'm walkin the plank today.
Thanks for reading, peace to you
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...
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...
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...
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
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 dizzy, popped old scar, blood, flood....
Remember the night, 2004 , knew it was kicking off, stood on his right
"How many you shifted cuz" crack, he's left handed!!
Burst my eye, a good dig landed, never hit back couldn't win it
Had a squad, picked his meat, 2 digs, n I'm...
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...
It is private and just for you.
You think you know me and my name?
That’s not right, oh what a shame!
But I know yours now – that’s so funny!
Are you getting nervous honey?
You think the pic of yours is tender?
No, it looks like one of an offender!
To **** me was a...
I would ask only you to dance with me,
Take my hand, look me in the eye,
Dance with me, baby 'til the end of time
I want to paint you a picture,
And color it with my heart,
Take my hand, look me in the eye,
Dance with me, baby 'til the end of time
I'll sing to you, and sing...
and down our emotions are being twirled around the finger of a sadistic little girl.
Our seems a tad torn where they lay sown, the stuffing now a bit more fragile than before
Motion now a tad tiresome as the given turns to effort so gravely lent.

for himself, step on &step up kind of world.
Thats what we are are taught, at the thought our lips become curled.
At first until it hurts, until we see that there is no remorse for the weak.
The concept grows stronger with every lash on the cheek.
Burning through our veins as...
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...

dusty collection of writings
it is that i've come
that are our science
through our days
will be common trinkets
for fools stumbling
within the next
while beauty simply stated...
Watching it all go by,
No significance to others,
Just a bench warmer.
Used until I'm no longer needed,
My heart is no longer in the game,
I've been gone for quite awhile,
But when will you notice?
I'm not the me I used to be,
Voices of confusion grow,
Distant memories smolder and burn,
Remembering a love long ago,
My tortured soul screams,
In the dark,
Tears pour like the falling rain,
As I whisper your name.
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
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...
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...
Hand in hand under the crippled tree
That has lived the life of a thousand seas
Torn apart by even the warmest breeze
So there we stand under the black tree
The most beautiful sight to ever be seen
You take my hand and brace for the leap
Oh how tired you must be...
shutting out the lights
My thoughts drifting back to our loved filled nights
My soul perished by my own wrongs
Music now a curse, I shuffle threw our songs
You have become a beautiful thorn in my side
Cutting in deeper as my longing becomes a limp in my stride.
Slowly i snuff...
No one answer, but polyphony
Multiple melodies played as one
To make one song, a song that is me.
The between-place, not I and not We
But all of us, see what I can't see
Through your eyes and mine all truths exist
Doing right by you and right by me.
