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...
Captured between the false reality,
Broken and torn until blood stops flown,
Weeping like willows inside the night,
Lonesome with hatred and bitter revenge,
Crushed from promises laid to rest,
Silently crying within my chest,
Hearts ripped in two,
Only speaking to barely few...
The winds of time erode away
The memories of our past,
Leaving us with shadowy thoughts
That disappear too fast.
And so we cling with all our might
And try to hold them near,
All the things for which we care,
And those that we hold dear.
No matter how much we try to cling...
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...
Lets just get lost in the pain of the uncaring, and find a way to numb it all away. We've dealt with it all our lives, but now is the time we've begun to give up. We've got to numb the pain. To make it all just go away. We must figure something out soon, before it's too late...
most ugliest of situations
I held you in my womb
I fell deeply in love, pure love
I will never stop protecting you
Tears were shed when I first gazed upon you
We speak our own little language
We share our own special glances
You possess a smile so bright
Your light pierces...
world around me it’s a blunder of bloodshed and mistakes.
When I look at the world its is full of happiness and joy.
When I look at the world it fills me up with sadness, the shadow of human nature that,wraps around the confinements of my mind, a hand that reaches out into my...
Cos when it's long
It's hard to bear.
The load of length
Coupled with time
Brings physical pain
To those who whine.
The slightest comment
A glancing blow,
Flies through your heart
Like an arrow.
But see we live
In God's good eyes
His plan so great...
I hear tires rolling over the wet pavement, spaying mist and whispering into the unlit corners of urban sprawl.
Sirens are sounding far away, as the city chants her menacing intent for all to hear.
Your slumbering breath next to me gives me comfort in this place that...
But is that pyramid greed worth ya soul
Many mix reality with illusions
Now the whole earth is full with rage & confusion
Race against race Rich over poor
The elite is taking over & giving us more pain than we can endure
Many walk around here in a slave mentality...
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...
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...
But she's alone not feeling that she truly belong
Smile for the camera but hurting inside
Now it's in the dressing room crying out her eyes
It's too much pressure that she just can't handle
Everybody pushing her to the top & she can't understand them
She tries to give her...
but there is shadow etched in the patches of light
there is taste of misgivings in sweet afternoon air
the heart sketches its dreamscape
but distant thundercloud ripe with storm encroaches
but it is the image that intrudes
a vision from the inner mind
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...
but never won! Waaaaah!
Vividly green grass ripples across a rise
At the center one last shovel of dirt is thrown upon a mound
Stray wind blows some of it up to the stunning blue sky
World leaders surround with relief paramount
All I hear is deafening...
to be, someone who's better than we are so the other wont leave.
We're not as perfect as they think
It's love that makes us appear so
And love that makes us try to be
In our pretending we do become someone who's better than we were....
And now I think that, I'm done..?
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...
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...
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...
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?
so does my heart
Crashing waves and gusts of dysphoria
Inner self regret, wind chills, rain
You are the stirring sea that dragged me down once again
I was drowned by your lies
Crushed by the pain
I am in the eye of the storm
When the clouds are gray here, there is no silver...
(Picture Robert Doisneau)
Eye staring out
What are you thinking?
In the comfort of his arms,
Immune to the vaccine of his charms.
A look of desire?
A potent magic spell?
Across the orbits of your eyes
And your zygomatic arch,
See the subtle smile rise high.
Skin line-less and...
(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
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...
It is the gate way to my fantasy
There I am a hero, master and king
I am capable of doing anything
When I dwell there the world fades away
Even my wife and kids cannot get a hold of me
I get a parcel and bring it back to reality
These are the poems that I write for everyone...
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...
I flash a gentle smile,
And tilt my head,
I take a deep breath,
Almost as if
I don't know the answer,
Love is a force
A force of nature
That we cannot command
It cannot be erased,
If you can do so,
It is not the true nature
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,
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 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 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...
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...
Before I can remember for the ones that I cared
Before the years of hate and love, was the years of grace and fun.
Before a time of pain, I was in a time full of games.
Before I was selfish and deceiving, I was amusing and self caring.
Before college It was sad and...
so many years
Now it ends in tears
Right out of the blue
You had wanted to
You are no longer here
I yearn to have you near
You’ve been the one
That stood there by my side
Whenever things went wrong
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...
It never rightfully belonged to me
But I wanted it nonetheless,
So when you were distracted and couldn’t see
I took it, I confess.
I thought that it might take a while
For you to realize your mistake,
And though I felt guilty in my guile
I held it close, for love’s sake...
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
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
to find the day.
Even though the Sun has faded;
I know now if I had waited,
You’d be glad to lead the way.
I would tickle like a hound dog’s nose
Chasing smells it cannot trace.
Yet feel a life worth living,
Running just to taste you face.
Dogs can surely smell out...
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...
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...
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
when you'll feel real low.
Pushed to the ground, face first in the snow.
You get back up looking strong and proud.
All you want to do is scream real loud.
You get back home after long days work, and put the knife to your wrist instead of going berserk.
The people, your family...
lucky and loved, a quirky little girl always covered in mud, when faced with a challenge she'd smile and nod, never bothered by policies, governments, god.. All at once the age of bildungsroman, she was asked to predict of the places she's going, With a heart all too young and a...
