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...
to the needs of others. It's hard to know, that all you can show, is a heart torn and twisted. Deep down inside, your soul slowly died, and was left in an eternal mist. So one day, you'll find the words to say, what's been hurting all these years.
since I saw you last,
And I almost have come to believe
That I'm no longer at the mercy of my pointless crush,
No longer my heart do I deceive.
I love you as a friend,
(I've been telling myself),
but that's as far as it goes.
I tell myself I am now immune
to that which caused...

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...
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
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...
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,
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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 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...
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...
With the village children praying
Did you hear them calling out your name
For to save them from the slaying
Did you watch the day turn into night
With the village children weeping
Did you hear them calling out your name
As they saw death softly creeping
Did you watch...
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...
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
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...
distracted by scenery and questions of life
my eyes stumble upon the one that one day
one day I hope becomes my wife.
Her eyes were two deep ponds
waiting for my soul to dive
so that there would be no other bonds
where my attention would thrive.
Dark brown locks of hair...
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
Your hands on my body,
Your lips on my breasts,
My stomach and thighs.
Joy in my heart,
With loud happy sighs.
The thing that I crave
Is a kiss at my core.
You open me up,
And want to do more.
Inside I swell,
so wet and tight,
You move inside me
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...
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...
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...

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?
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...
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
yet another human walking past me. More days go by and the sun keeps playing hide and seek. Like it is toying with me.
Oh how life is toying with me, playing with my sense of right and wrong.
Oh please my world, why won't you be gentle?
I don't even know how to describe beauty...
when you were young,
And you never got to be.
So many things you never had,
And never got to see.
Even though protected as much we could,
You never had a chance.
To walk the halls with friends at school,
Or ever find romance.
You never smelled a flower,
Or watched a bird in...
(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
I'm trapped between pages and underneath words. your beauty, your love, your warmth is a breath of fresh air to my lungs. It breathes new life into a story so cold and bitter. One that thought it was nearing it's end. Every part of me, every ounce of strength and love belongs to...
