for you to complain over all I lack.
Your words are too much to hack.
Beauty is beyond skin,
but you're stupidity is at the core.
Along with all your lies and sins.
You say I'm all you want,
how long that will last is unknown.
Sick of all the fights and rants.
I'm done and on...
in the dark.
Caves of ice,
where giants live,
and fairies dance.
in the far night sky.
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...
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
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...
Each day a slow restore
To feel all she is
But just can't see
She is beautiful
She has always been to me
Her beauty is not
Her stunning looks
Or her dressed in a fine dress
Every page within her book
Holds something that
Makes her pretty
I sat alone
And tried to think,
Of words so grand,
To put in ink.
The words came slow,
No cutesy rhymes,
No expressed desire.
No lover’s song,
No wrong to right.,
No erotic rhyme,
To fill the night.
I could not find...
The tightening of my gut.
Mouth watering fantasies,
Butterflies won't fill me up.
I think i like the hunger...
The aroma that fills the air
with your presence,
Always deliciously the same.
An intoxicating chain reaction
That drives me...
And I never thought I would care;
Enough to salvage at any cost,
A love that seemed so rare.
My mind and heart were each at odds;
Each wanted their own way.
They battled till the very end,
To see which one would stay.
It is hard to say which one has won,
house screamed they were a wealthy family
The large gardens agreed; Their beauty told that the woman was dedicated
A fresh cut lawn said the same about the man.
The swing on the front porch shared stories of sunrises with the man and woman
Behind a large black door a huge...
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 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
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...
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...
there were always two kinds of falling.
It was beautiful; like a sea of pink flowers
Like a tummy with butterflies
A car at it's fasted speed
A night sky filled with fireflies
Glowing in the dark
Like the spark you lit in my shadowed heart.
I was falling in...
and the sunlight submerged returns
she lay in the pieces of sunshine
sculpture of dreads and beads
fine tuned erotica machine
with a heart of gold and trinkets of silver
she rests one arm across me
i savour its textures and its tastes on the mind
grains of sand along the...
every thorn piercing my skin.
This game, I'll always lose.
Why waste my tears?
I'll always be a lost case.
Trapped in my own cage,
scribbling nonsense of a page,
that no one will ever read,
they'd just laugh at me,
or tear me from this world like a weed.
My face plastered over...
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...
Connecting your inner self to the outer appearance
An appearance that is used to define who we are
But who we are is not reflected
The soul mirrors the truth
Alas, the truth cannot be seen by the human eye
An eye that sees past freedom and beauty
Only to see the lie it...
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 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...
I happened [stumbled] upon her one day,
Clad in a muddied dress, in disarray.
Damsel why on this floor dost thou lie?
Reply, "I am alive? I am ali-"
Deaden thy waggling tongue fair maid
Such babble thou speweth forth! Her mumblings fade.
I have but one request to...
leaves gathered there rustle like dry skin
feel the memory of hands cold and dry
smell the christmas ornaments and cookies
the knowledge hidden never really known only hinted
that knowledge has eyes that watch
has a mouth that silently recites each footstep
Burying all of my deep emotion because I know the love is not mutual
Shared passion is what I hoped for
Mad love is what I needed from you
Selfishly you kept it away
Denying me time after time leaving me drowning in my fantasies
Leaving my soul thirsty for yours
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...
Locked me out
I don't know
What's going on
With holding upset
I don't understand
I want to hit out
I want to fight
I don't know what
Tears will fall
Sleep will come
Time will pass
We will move on
I might have more elbow room,
Because you'd be hunting for what you yearn.
Or another course will we consume?
The stomach starts getting weak I've learned.
And if you pass the salt again, I'm doomed.
But if I ask for sugar , it's like your gut churns.
I fell for your voice, so...
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...
And watch the years go by.
I have seen the setting sun,
As it paints a crimson sky.
I have seen the green green grass,
And watch the flowers bloom.
I have heard the singing birds,
While sitting in my room.
I have seen the trees so green,
Dress the girls up in dresses,
dress the boys in suits,
we might as all be mutes.
We speak, you don't hear,
stuck up your own rear.
You say we are rude,
gangsters running wild,
I'm a biggest prude.
I couldn't get any more mild.
Generalize a whole generation,
acting like you...
baby I'm sorry don't leave.
Stay with me, just stay.
I need to think before I speak,
don't go, I know I'm weak.
You deserve better than me,
but I can't let you go.
My temper always takes over me,
I turn into a demon,
my words spitting like venom.
I need to stay quiet,
and gone... We are still here, We haven't moved on. Your memories stay on our hearts and minds... A better friend we could not find. We will share you love you left; And pass it along to everyone else.
To all those who have lost a brother or even a brother in arms.
mind, the shackles of suppressed memories unfold, into a delicate flower that spurs out the poison of my undoings. Hance I think to thy self "why do I ponder on foolish and relish thoughts on the foundation on what my existence matter to the people around me" yet I feel as if...
giant trees reaching into the sky.
It is a mystical place,
with old spirits walking by.
Twisted fingers of drift wood,
drying, piled up at high tide.
The smell of smoke...
hidden in the mist.
bursting forward, then ebbs.
Little bubble trails...
plucked before time,
Grapes crushed before ripe enough for wine,
What joy comes from one who fears unwelcomed passion,
Would the offender be giddy if their person received forced action,
No says the masses, No says the jury,
For such scenarios cause emotion not easy to bury,
Dream to reach the pinnacle
Dream to cross that final hurdle
But there are forces that pull me down
The ones who wanna make me drown
I try my best to free myself
But one after another they come again
I always knew the journey was tough
But i always thought to fight my...
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...
I would say a picture,
Because you to me,
Are worth far more than one word,
You are amazing,
You are intelligent,
You are beautiful,
You don't see what I see,
You are sitting here reading this,
You may not know it's you,
I'm talking about.
But if you do know you're the one,
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...
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 man of pain sat alone,The girl of hope sat in pain,Both looked at the stars, Where they touched the moons light,One so far,The other further,But the heavens had a plan,The girl shredded tears of pain,A broken girl without a name,She looked upon a mirror,Her reflection...
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...
(reposting this again...sorry :) )
you were the first one who said i looked beautiful any other way.
in those godawful thick glasses.
even if i wear my hair short.
even if i go bald.
and should i decide
to don a skirt with thigh high slits,
or walk around with a sleeve...
(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
they do not ask that you pay your debts,
they do not bother you with guilt.
though some are
with fake faces and knives,
pulled through life by lovely perfume.
they accept help from anyone.
just don't want to
feel you around them.
your money is...
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?
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...
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...
heat from the day rises from the asphalt
Another long day has ended in silence
Only sounds of lonely sighs fill the damp air
Thoughts of past, present and future meander about
Breaths become heavier as the past is thought
Longing, needing and wanting still haunt
Blue eyes widen...
