Ovals of amber smiling back
And your soft flowing colour
I wish to grab you up
Bury myself in your richness
Roll in your existence shouting
But I am an adult now
And the thrall of mediocrity
Has imprisoned me
In my bland partitioned office
The rustle of bills in my...
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...
as you rest your head
Against my chest. Can you hear a storm approaching?
That's my heart! It rages as your warm breath
Sweeps against the broad cage
That barely can contain it. But have no fear.
It is a heart that cannot draw, 'though it would bleed
Should your cheek forsake it...
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 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,
for you is a song for me
I see red inside my head
From memories corroding dead
Take me to insanity
Take me to insanity
Dark clouds rising with nicotine
Drains the pain right through my veins
Here we go once again
Black Clouds rising Inside my head
It feels like a dream
A center would ruin it.
Of every crack
Of every chip
Revealing its heart
From beneath the surface
There is no need for a center.
I would not belong.
The air is young.
The sun is fresh.
The clouds are new.
But the entire time
They've watched the cracks
And the entire time
with artless strokes, caressed.
Nor for a fervid whisper of desire,
Not withstanding all the hunger that my heart possessed,
For that the ink I spilt was not inspired.
Not for one kiss should I ever trade my passion, my art,
Nor seek such lucrative returns
From the blind...
because the former is a lot like the latter.
An innocent villain to the guilty victim
With these, the wise opinions of a mad hatter.
You were special, ironically leading the way,
abandoning normality and also me.
Vanishing from sight and as I'm left leader less
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...
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...
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...
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
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...
(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
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?
of hope falls from my eyes.
poems dont rhyme and paintings are in greys,
the warmth of the sun replaced by the grave.
a burned and blackened wasteland stretches to the shore,
the blighted oceans that i once adored.
love so cold, a world of no life,
a life ruined and bitter...
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...
Hearts can be in many colors,
Blood bleeds in many ways,
Still my heart lingers more,
Because I am searching for a home,
We all need a home,
We all need a place to be,
A place where others lay,
Laying as a pack on we shall go,
Moonlight skies wake me up,
Keeps my mind racing...
a serenading streamIn a tapestry bound by threads of fancy,A tangled weave of tangled dreams.The tall grass, swept by gentle rhythmStirred by an impulsive kiss,Became the whisper of a sighResponsive to my hand's caressAnd, as we lay, my eyes were drawnAbove to cloudless phthalo...
of good love~ here to give service and love~~ I am the child of my parents~ nurtured by their character and care~ sent away at an early age~ to look for knowledge and learning~~ I am the chubby nerdy child~ that got made fun of~ called out a math oddity~ praised by some, mocked...
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...
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...
and of happiness and of anger and of malice and of everything else that the stars could have possibly made up of
You let them scatter all over my body
Some settle in my veins, blooming into lillies
My brain became a field of forget me nots
But by far the largest amont decided to...
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...
because you are no longer a part of it
My world will have a thousand more possibilities and options because you are not the center
But that doesn't matter right now
because I would rather be absolutely ******* miserable, and be with you
Then be alone
and thats the whole...
As a veil in your thoughts and dreams
Image of my red lips and red hair
Is what you remember
But no life is behind those thin eyes
While the real ones gleamed that colour
Like the rest of me
Shards tearing us apart
Or perhaps we were always torn...
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
I'm not here to be loved
It whispers in my ear
A lesson that repeats
As a weight that defeats
While binding me in place
Alone on quiet streets
In my own masquerade
The lies of my charade
I pretend to be more
In hopes sorrow can fade
I acknowledge the pain
As I stand...
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...
would I know?
Before me it could stay
And which of us would be perplexed,
I could not say.
It or I,
Perplexed by which.
If that white had a form,
how would I know?
Around me it could encase,
Or within me it could fill,
But perplexed, I could not say
If it or I
Were the same...

now a ghost town
Old visions creep
There is no sound
I cannot sleep
This Too Shall Fade
It's time to lay in my bed
Since it's already been made
Inside, I feel so dead
You're so near, yet so far
Restlessness at its finest
This Too Shall Fade
One night there...
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
and it's cold
I'm full of lies and spitting gold.
Hearts are sinking like a stone
words are cutting to the bone.
Drink it down
It's over now.
Blood is tainted but sublime
half awake but floating high.
All their faces disappear
all intentions turn to...
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...
weeping as I watch us fall like raindrops
whilst holding the knowledge of those before
that fell through misty eyes. It never stops.
There will come a time when the last drop falls,
And I will realise my greatest fear.
With arms wide open I'll join this ocean,
hoping that you're...
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...
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 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...
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...
