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...
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
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
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...
So alive amid dying light,
Embraced by the night,
Illuminate with unseen bliss.
The earth is your canvas.
Scary, yet I’ve no fear.
From afar I see slow dancing:
On haunted soil, frolicking
In ragged dress with messy hair,
Awkward steps oh, so dear.
Remove your cozy boots...
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
Inside my heart begins to quicken.
My body and soul start to beg,
Than your tongue explores my hard budded breast licking.
Ur lips soft, warm, inviting,
U trace my face, forehead, eyelids and jaw.
Everything else has gone away,
My body has lost the ability to fight,
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...
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...

you I instantly knew I needed to dip my fingers into the oceans in your eyes.
I needed to put my arms, toes, all my limps and my torso and even my head into the oceans of your eyes to uncover just some of the mysteries below.
Sometimes I would just plunge in without thought...
as they never belonged
Found themselves a home in your arms
From all of the right that had wronged
And for a brief moment in time
You promised to never let go
But as your fingers slowly slipped
You became another Jane Doe
Their mystery began to fade
With a rendezvous never...
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 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
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...
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?
in 4/4 time.
With the lonely girl dressed in fury
Who killed the chorus with a line.
And every time I have it
I wake up feeling numb
Like everything familiar
Was a song for me she sung.
I try and grasp to memories
Of this dream and others to
But these, my hands have atrophied...
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...
What will it take for it to fall?
She'll put up a fight
With all her might
You won't like the sight
She knows you'll take flight
No one ever makes the stand
Or reaches out a hand
Life can't be so grand
When you live in barren waste land
She'll always be the one that's...
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...
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 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...
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...
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...
", he thought. In his 30's, the love of life was now gone from him. The first few months had been heart wrenching. He had been dumped before by a woman, but this was by far a ton worse. She didn't dump him , life did.
Everything he saw in their apartment reminded him of her...
against the wooden hull,
This old boat moored far from shore,
The flickering lights of campfires,
Shadowy figures in muffled voices rise.
Athenian clouds bathed by moonlight,
Scream by me as I gather speed,
Cloth whispers in the breeze,
Pulling me toward my destiny.
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...
A huddled mass of people stood against the white falling snow. The green carpet stretched forth before them. They laid her down into the white soft snow. Her face just an image of the people that knew her. The casket adorned with red roses. The white snow falling...
I try to hold back
Yet they still flow down my cheeks
I can't hide
What I'm feeling inside
The anger, the frustration
The sadness, the despair
It feels as though
I'm hurt more than I love
But in the end
That's what we are
Like the tears drops
In my eyes
(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
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...
while I'm on the floor,
I sit by myself
A lamp within reach
that is left turned off,
the darkness can teach,
it is what I know
A favorite song,
that is still unheard,
it just feels so wrong,
it might make me think
A brilliant sunset,
that's never been seen,
just one more...
The Dead Texan
Happy Valentines Day!
If I had my way
And circumstances afforded it,
I would take you...
Out to the west coast of Ireland,
Along the wild Atlantic way.
A walk to the Cliffs of Moher,
Two hundred and seven meters above the sea roaring...
His heart yearns
To lend lips
To just one single ripple
That could kiss, and caress
Her undulating contours,
Soft and flushed,
Like the forbidden fruit
Of an ungathered harvest,
Rise in the sight
Of his untamed lust as
He craves the nectar, dripping

In the dark
Songs of laughter
In the park
Love's laugh dancing
Brings the song
Of the meadowlark
Hit his mark
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 when life crawls
A demon is home
A life that can't be changed
A time where we will wait
Which are you
Were you there when tears fall
Were you there when life crawls
There is always a way
To be both and yet the same
want is to forget
Everything is fine now but when I lay in the darkness of my room alone at night everything seems to come back
His fake smile and unexpected gentle words
My heart thought it was okay but he corrected me
All I want is to forget
Forget the words he...
