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...
alone with only my thoughts,
my past returns
I can barely keep the voices at bay,
they will not be silenced,
nor will they tolerate being ignored
A dozen voices whispering in the night,
in an unending unison of judgement,
"you cannot be love"
So many chances,
and an equal...
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...
feel the beginning of the beginning
Soft, sultry, summer sun
Warm, full and free
Peeking through the trees
All the love (world) for you and me
Sweet child, sweet smile
Eyes green, full and free
Shine in the soft, sultry, summer sun
And in that moment we are one
We are won
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?
I know this to be true.
Because I saw heaven there
when I looked at you.
A smile so pure and simple
Your inner light was flowing free
I truly saw my heaven there
When you smiled at me
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...
do I need to remind you?
haven't I done enough?
or do you need more?
falling to pieces,
feeling lost in the drama,
never knowing which way to turn,
feeling out of place.
when did we become strangers,
when did I lose faith?
I thought I could see,
but I guess I gave it all.
for I know I will be welcome there.
I want to cut this senseless rope, that binds me a worthless hope.
For nothing here has sent me home...
No, no I mustn't stagger from my path that chose me, for as the light hath
Brought me closer here, than anything I'd ever see in this...
sun kissed ripples
of a late and hazy afternoon
spent idly wandering...
light feet, free and fancy,
skipping over Lily pads and swaying
to rhythm of the reeds,
their roots sunk deep
in the cool blue pools of devotion.
You are the scent of pine
in the dark forest, flirting with...
here in anticipation
Déjà vu is setting in.
The past keeps flashing by me,
As I upgrade to Windows ten.
I have seen this kind of thing before,
Upgrades are nothing new.
I started many years ago,
Running MS-Dos two.
I have often fought the upgrades,
I have even threw some...
Something oh so bright,
But please, let me be truthful.
Beauty reminds me of the pain,
It drives me insane!
Who could stand breaking down
When there's nothing to cause a frown?
It makes me want to suffocate
Trust me, I don't exaggerate.
Please, someone tell me...
A fairy tale that will decline and incline
A fairy tale is just an ugly creature behind a hideous face
A beautiful meaning
A beautiful story
The tale will only end when the mistress is safe
Safe in a strangers arms who she was destined to love
Why should the story stop...
amidst the people the fool so vain.
he smiles at all to dance and sing,
this to celebrate his rise to king.
a crown of lead with robes of dust,
scepter bent and sword of rust.
this motley fool, the knave of hearts,
has lost his sould to loves sweet arts.
but love alone is...
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...
while we all lose our mind
eyes shadowed over, temporarily blind.
The world looking confusing, people unkind
but you'll always have those who wont leave you behind.
They are by your side and have your hand
as you're confused and unbalanced, they help you stand
having them near...
Love is the thing that keeps it from falling apart,
The mind is an intelligent tool
Without it a man is no more then a ignorant fool,
I grow to strive and teach my brain,
Days get hard and it can be quite a pain,
However I never wish to be plain,
My soul is impure by...
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...
person spends their life, maybe where they keep their things. I never realized until recently that it's something you make for yourself the way birds do. Meticulously, over time. Home can be anywhere that you want it to be. Sticks and moss and a little bit of your own...
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...
(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
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
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...
depression is not an easy thing
going thru each day not knowing what it may bring.
It's not as easy as you may think
to wash it all straight down the sink.
I have ups and downs, but I still do try
but when I mess up, you scold and I cry.
With depression you can be happy or sad...
A shining product of a fallen star.
Not to be mistaken as the one we seek,
A reflection of him, that tends the weak.
Brought to see with Omniscient power.
Activation within, the lotus flower.
Peace of mind, and piece of it all.
Piece of Universe, Never to fall.
but you are not alone
you are beautiful right down to the bone
please dont be sad
just try to smile just a tad
you are perfect in your own way
weather you are bi straight or gay
even though life aint fair
there are people out there who care
all you have to do is try
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’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,
scratch from the bleeding quill
torn from the wings of flightless dreams
and dipped in fantasy's brimming well
where expression is the fresh carrion
in a dream's possession, gripped
by the talons of raven raged nights;
and the ink I spilt over these crumpled sheets
Your beauty; Like the dawn
A timeless clock
An eternal sunrise
Your visage drives me on
Elegance of tone
Symmetry in motion
Your grace so undefined
Upon a throne
In my heart's devotion
My feelings are now enshrined
Within my silence
And my averted glance
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...
memories never fail to flow,
Back to when you were small;
To toys scattered on the floor,
And crayon on the wall.
I remembered all the questions asked,
On trips with just us two,
Like why is the water wet,
And why the sky is blue.
Those times we had were simple times,
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...
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...
much to my dismay,
still talking and taking things,
farther and farther away
losing focus again,
like times from the past, they never end
I can't imagine what I'm doing
so far my attention, that which I am losing
still struggling to believe
sure enough to breathe
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 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...
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
before the sun
Another sleepless night
Another day begun
Another chance to get it right
Another day of living
Another thing that could go wrong
Another sin to be forgiven
Another place I don't belong
And as the sun shall slowly travel
Across my clearest skies
depict dreams lost forever.No matter how often I reach for you, the river of eternity carries me farther away from your touch.Even though time is supposed to heal all wounds, it intensifies the pain.Separated in our own universes, I still feel your touch, which thrills my soul...
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...
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...
