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...
Your armor shines and glistens upon the sun
Your helmet glows brilliant gold and silver
Your face illuminates the radiance of love
Your eyes delve deep into the world and universe
Crisis and desire conflict in one spectacle
Damnation upon you and I forfeit our lives
Your halo and...
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
Just met an angel?
Heathen goddesses are unlikely
Candidates to judge
Being weighed down by
The weight of all their vulgar
Offerings of earthly gold
But in the case of one angel
The goddess of desire met,
She knew its divinity by
The fact that it made her aware
The hardest part isn't building the house but whether or not I am welcomed in and if the locks on the door haven't changed.
I built the biggest house in you,
I guess you can say I haven't been home in a week now,
You haven't spoken to me, it's as though I was...
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?
before it starts,
If my hopes rip me to shreds,
I’d be glad to be dead.
It’s always winter in my heart.
Nothing grows, nothing lives,
Stillness above and below,
The blanket of snow my skin
And shadows cast by crooked trees,
I’m so numb I couldn’t...
As right and wrong fade away
Breaths taken and stolen
The pleasure takes control
Leaving senses on fire
Not a thought or care
Only the ecstasy of being
Driving each to release
The need for satisfaction
And lost along the way
To a moment of pure bliss
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...
Led towards periodic obsessions
Leading to nowheres
And stranger nobodies
When misgivings are taken for truths
Without realizing the clever sleuths
Ghosts slip under the phone booths
For a call that rings and never ends
Like congealed clouds of conflicting vapor...
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...
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...
so green and soft,
its ends were covered with tiny little
holes where bugs had been feeding upon them.
But it's beauty was still present. I
It's lax body was so fine it made the
world even more glistening beautiful with its
alluring shape. This leaf was something else.
of a thousand suns
The lighting that slices through
The inky darkness
The thunder that shatters a veil of silence
The rain that reverberates off the infinite world below
The moonlight that reflect from iridescent pools of silver murky liquid
The soft hypnotic murmurs of...
The flame lit up the glistening blade.
Her towel fell from her body,
on the ground it laid.
A drop of moisture from her hair,
curved her upwards chest.
The breeze crept through the window,
stood up the focus of her breast.
She embraced the blade in her hand,
lyed on the silk...
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...
(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
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...
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...
a true rose among weeds. I sit in my acidic soul, wishing to someday cast my seeds to the neural hill. Were atop grows the sweets and the sour, the bitter and tasteless. I sit within my reason as I walk into this small forest. Full of the forgotten and shamed who dare bask in...
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...
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
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...
usually the mark of someone wondering and thinking of existence lately. Such a way to embrace the reality of which you live in but it's not without the dogs of destiny looking at you in an eerie way, the sirens howl and lights flash revealing something of a lostness. A...
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...
The girl that died of a heartache passed me in the night whispering memories of youI stood to frightened to move for fear my eyes cast a lightand the darkness she drew like a cape around her shoulders.Her tears fell like jewels on the crushed lovers rulesthat you broke to bring...
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,
Burned down the cities.
What world is this?
And the one for which I search?
Barefooted, bruised, muddied.
I lay me down in the ground.
Wait for Mother Earth to swallow me.
As I feel Her Warmth.
In a world I belong.
that may never be known,
mental disturbance turns a heart back to stone.
Create memories alone in your head,
holding you hostage as you lay in your bed.
Fits of despair have blinded your sight,
awaken to find you are losing the fight.
Rays of sunlight lead the way,
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...
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 wind recognizes truth in it's entirety. Waiting and listening to the hum you realize what you thought was a tsunami wasn't quite a wave that leads into the underground of a particular stronghold. Such an apple, an arc sought after is left behind for the many to gaze at it in...
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 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...
who found the letter
Written in stardust
We are one in the same
With minds like killers
And angel hearts
Demons and lovers
United, we play our parts
Breaking down to rise
This is how we live our lives
Fighting a disguise
Mixing chemicals ignite
The part in fractured souls...
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...
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...
After your freedom has been taken away
You start to realize just what you've lost
And start to realize at what cost
It starts to soak in as you peer through the bars and razor
That you can longer do just what you desire
Your movements are monitored...
though the Vietnam War. A distant memories I can not remembered. A torn old country I left behind so many years ago.
Now live in Calgary AB, I called a safe home. I am at peace within myself. My life Is fulfilled & I am blessed forever. By: DiscoNight1970s
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...
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...
You're hanging, dangling
From a small silver thread.
With the monsters within
You just want to give in.
Now imagine that's you
Every day, every hour
Like a wilting flower.
You try to tell your dad
And you try to tell 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
Looking through a glass of a purplish tone makes you realize where you have fallen, the under-bite and jaw seizes opportunity left by inattentive gazes. Harmony left up to the mailman of a certain blackness, not inherent to nature leaves on with the feeling of such a...
Beautiful Bluebirds echoing sweetly chirping away. Feel the cool breezes flow through our bodies. We're holding our arms together, whispering & cherishing softly words to ourselves. Reminiscing the fond memories & the love we have for each other. Our everlasting friendship will...
Songs of love you sing
Into the open blue
Songs of the sun
Chirp as you run
Don't go hiding
And in that sky along you soar
With spirits high and rising more
A gentle flutter, my heart doth stutter
Of the fantastic...
