.. by moiYou sent me a postcard from Italy,Of your travels that summer,One after another, a trail leading everywhere.Low sun and orange skies,Heat and terracotta coloursOld Coca-cola signs, faded in the Tuscan light,Fountains, bathing your un-sandaled feetAnd brown tanned skin...
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...
my spine, and my body curls. With deliberate strokes, your adoration for me unfurls. In the dimness, the beads of sweat lay like melted pearls. When goodbyes are said at twilight, reality itself, at our consciousness, hurls.
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’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,
(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?
heavy breeze freighted with salt bows each blade
before recoiling back into the foam of a breathing ocean.
Words pass between walking figures,
their leisurely strides spied from a sunken hideaway
by the furtive and humorless black orbs of a ghost crab.
as you know who you are
You are the person that talks with me, and hails from very far
You were one of the very first people, that I met here when I was new
Several accounts later, and I am still talking with you
At first I was quite stubborn, and sometimes even rude
But it was...
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...
for their dreams
crayon marks from gentle hands
pastels upon the sky
bridges to another world
in colors of experience
expressions of life's wondrous dance
deep within its folds
images of our own design
spanning anchors of today
portals for imagination's gift
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...
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
face, shows a different side of beauty. Is the the way it reflects, or am I blind to see? The males see your body, I see your eyes. They only see skin, and I see a shine. There's a different side, behind your smile. It isn't really beauty, it's truly a nightmare.
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...
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...
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...
as if the dawnCast beads of dew upon her lipsAnd every sweet petal of sense I ownLies scattered at her fingertips,The pages of the map are tornFrom reason, veiled in lust's eclipseAs my hands caress her, like the gentle breezeOf tranquil climates, I kiss the skinOf her silken...
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 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...
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...
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
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
of the stars on your skirtAnd how it looked moving on youWalking up the stairs...Slow motion,PoignantPurely sexual, InnateSensual loving that could not waitI had stars on my mindThinking of the stars on your skirtAnd how it lay on the floorThat very night of long love...And for...
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...
but proud of it
She has her flaws but she wears them proudly
She's made mistakes and she knows she is not a saint
A tainted past that has braced her for her future
But she still has her smile and oh how it's so beautiful
If all I can do is make her smile it's all worth it
that never fadesIn wild mischievous eyes;Petals that never fold or creaseLose their lustre nor their hue,Although that fragrant bloom remainsBeyond my reach, no thornCould ever pierce so deepTo stem the passion from these lips,Cut these hands, but not this heart...That bleeds...
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...
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...
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
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...

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.

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...
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 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...
And I fear you'll go again,
Where did you go?
Why am I not happy?
I thought I would be,
But all I want to do is cry,
Why am I not happy?
If all is lost,
And all is gone,
If all is pain,
Why do you cause me to smile?
Where have you gone?
Didn't you realize,
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...
