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 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...
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?
Leaving a path of crimson and green.
The inky sky silent as the stars illuminate,
Lighting the colours that glisten on the crest of the waves.
My hands long to reach across the golden sand,
Touch the corners of your smile,
Etch you to my skin like an eternal tattoo,
Keep you in...
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...
Stay locked in time in one moment, the beautiful shine, hold it and sit back proud. Cause look at me now. Every days a struggle to fight the ugliness that clings deep. It's stings to peak and see the hatred that rapes me and keeps me weak. The moments I let go and pass on flat...
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,
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 dropping tears
Can someone tell why you're my fear?
I'm hollow. I'm shouting. since My first year! But nobody hears
I can't remember my nightmares, they weren't clear
Can you remind me what was the deal?
I feel your soul, but it's not real
I feel pain that just won't heal...
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...
2012) My intestines aren't intestines. There's a big *** tapeworm inside me. It ears every food I consume. And I never gain weight. As a matter of fact, I am gaunt as ****. My stomach from the outside looks swollen. And the tapeworm keeps growing. I can feel it licking my...
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...
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...
it's the start of a new day, a glass is broken, no words are spoken, the man stands and strives, starring at the knives, the memory of you rests inside, they had only cried, the sorrow remains and the shadows strength gains, no light to be seen, wishing it was all just a dream...
frightening dream that the moon was very huge right in front of me. Rising from the ground. I even seen the flag on the moon and the night just looked so surreal. Cows are flying around in chairs. Milk splash frozen in the air and the moon kept rising. It was bigger than my...

I see you in my sea food. I'm gonna eat you, oh you'll taste so good. I want you. I need you. I crave you. I watch you. I stare at you. I'm gonna pick you up and squeeze you and drop you in my mouth.
I see you in my sea food. I'm gonna eat you, oh you'll taste so...
AND IT IS DARK< VERY DARK.
You see my cuts
Not my scars
You see my smile
Not my tears.
You see my friends
Not my enemies
you see my mask
but not my true identity
As the eagle flew
A single feather fell
And it swayed back and forth
While it fell,
for low-grade happiness tonight
Narcotic of situation, not of choice
A semi-stranger on the other end
Without a face and without voice
I'd be moved to a state of semi-bliss
By the chance of his company
Typed word and mouth dumb
I'd beg for a morsel of...
I don't remember you,
But I can pretend
For a moment or two.
Our souls spent their eternity
Being dashed upon a wall of white.
I know you were there, certainly,
But if they knew, the others might
Have erased you.
If they knew
They'd take you
Away from me. They'd leave me in

Watch the flames dance with passion,
Lighting colours of red and golden amber into the night sky.
Watch the flames die,
The cold heat that remains,
Ashes and dust as a memory of us.
Carry the ashes of my heart in the pocket of your soul,
Think of me when the world becomes cold...
Ugh, I am disgusted with you. Ugh, I am disgusted with you. You always have a attitude. You always actin' weird. You don't speak your mind and you always be actin' shy. You always actin' mean and you hate everyone. Why? You caged bird! You don't never talk!!
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
and threw a stone into the water.
I watched the stone drop and concentric circles spread out from it.
The stone was solid. Though it sank, it was centered, and the circles were only the mist of sadness and despair drifting away.
The stone grew. The depth of the water breathed...
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...
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
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...
June 10, 2012)
Everyone hates you. They like to see you hurt and abused. Everyone just can't leave you alone. You can't stand people so you spend your days, lonesome. Its impossible for you to be at bliss. And its mainly because you're always pissed. No smiles for you, never...
til I met you
I had my suspicions and my biggest fear was that they were true
How far I'm willing to take it
Sometimes I'm scared that I won't make it
And the way I hurt you
You're the grass and I'm the frost just wanted to be loved but at what cost
Fight for a point that was...
2012) Field of roses, within my dreams. And I see all the ghosts hovering above me. Field of roses, within my dreams. And I see all the ghosts chasing after me. Field of roses, within my dreams. And I see all the ghosts following me. Field of roses, within my dreams. and I see...
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 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...
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
My selfish pride
My drug to use
My words to abuse
The choices that choose
Sickened with disgust
My life for lust
Love my misdeeds
Not knowing, nor caring
More caring, no sharing
Our lost worlds
What was yet so intimate...
(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!)
