cannot clearly see
What is the use of ears
if you are told you cannot properly hear
What is the use of the mind
if you are told you do not really understand
What is the use of the World
If the best philosophers call it just a Metaphor
What is the use of your Self
falling in love seems to be
like experiencing an encounter
with a Black Hole
in which we seem to have
as much to say
(especially as resisting it is concerned)
as a cohort of shiny Comets
struggling to prevent
being sucked in by
find every moment to find happiness, indiscriminately. Recklessly we lose ourselves into journeys made for epic adventures
Time stops and the Sun appears to wink at
Swings of clouds surge higher
Every woe melted, every sensation sublime
A free fall from Cloud 9 that makes a...
just a generous chance
of the stepdown therapy
Stepdown Therapy is the one that tapers the dosage...
eyes expresses nothing but cold and distant
My smiles are only because I'm enjoying
No, I don't miss anyone.
Past is not what I want to look at anymore
Few people are those whom I don't want anymore
I gave and gave and nothing I received
Now I'm tired of giving so I left all...
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...
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?
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 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 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...
Everything I write
Gets twisted into a fight
No matter how I feel
Words I have to conceal
Feelings I'm holding in
Pain and Hatred within
Trust has been shattered
My heart been tattered
Just cause love was lost
Thrown away at what cost
For another chance
knock- this send a jolt down my body
The perfect blend of nerves and excitement I call out your name
And a sexy, confirmation brings even greater flush through my neck and face
Unlocking the door, it finally unveils the person behind the secret messages, one look , barely two...
I can't hold it in anymore
I shattered my own heart
Now I'm breaking down
I'm falling apart,
so listen to me now
I'm not okay
I'm not alright
This is the truth
I'm not Fine
My walls are crumbling Down
there's fire and hell all around
I can feel myself slowly...
and take heed.
This tale of valor, of wit and wonderous deed.
From far off Elswyer a most distant place,
Came the greatest of Dragonborn that evil could face.
Saw it myself! I swear unto thee,
For adventurer i was till arrow struck knee.
I saw when Alduin met had his grim date...
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,
Night's passionsEscape from the outsideWarm on the insideDreams for the soul.Will hushed voicesAnswer the prescient night?Can hearts know minds,And time becomeAllied to the soul?Bring your song to the window......and know the voice of the wind.
when life feels like an abandoned boulevard
But in the darkest nights you see the brightest stars
The bright tomorrow might not heal your scars
But keep in mind they chiselled you into who you are
If you open up your chest and see what you're made of you'll realise you're finer...
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
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
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...
like the rest
I will always be
What they can't see
I'll just be myself
Never have the wealth
Nor the fine cars
Can't give you the stars
Don't own a Rolex watch
Clothes don't match
Saying that comes from the past
Nice guys do finish last
I am very giving
Work hard for my...
(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
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...
Nothing shows my feelings as your name inside a ring.
I could write it out in letters, across the endless azure sky,
But sun will set and sky grow dark as time goes flying by.
Carved in stone, etched in steel yet gentile as a dove,
A single ring, a name within shall show to...
and empty lies.
People are suffering and wondering why.
You cant trust a soul and the love seems to be fleeing.
People love to spread hate and that's all we're seeing.
Open up your hearts and minds and start focusing on being.
Why cant people grasp the simple things...
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...
and fire in your soul that speaks to me
Beyond boundaries and oceans and timezones
There is a trust in your tone and your gaze in your pauses that amazes me that each and every revealing revelry of who I am
Embraced by your longing gaze, the biting of your lip, your wistful...
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...
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...
answered when dead
Is it Heaven or hell
Only time will tell
After our day at God's Acre
We will finally meet our maker
No matter what you believe
No longer need to grieve
Time has came to an end
Spirit will begin to ascend
Saying goodbye at your wake
God's decision left to make...
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...
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'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...
Cold black heart
Been torn apart
Blood black as coal
Feelings you stole
No warmth in sight
Cold as a winters night
Trail of Hurt left behind
Brutality in your mind
Destruction is you goal
Torturing people's soul
Pure evil inside and out
Love long gone...
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...
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...
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...
Your memories addicting
I love you, but I understand
Love and possession are not the same
You don't need a mess
I can't bring you that
I love you, and you may not know
But I do, and I'm pretending
To write to you
Instead of chasing when I'm wearing chains
The world is filled with hate,
That’s what is the human fate.
Nothing is in place off late
Terrorist attacks is the latest update.
The world is changing at its pace
people don’t think they just chase.
Without any emotion they replace
the ones with an unknown face.
In front of the burning fire
laying on a cover of feather
Looking deep in her eyes
The vision seen is a paradise
Our lips softly coming together
In this instant we surrender
Our tongue flirting eachother
Tasting so sweet, perfect flavor
Running fingers through our...
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
Be the villain in your dreams
Watch the hero let you down
As you wake up the next day
To realize you aren't one
You fear the parents
Fear the crowd
They won't let you pass
What a bummer
What a son
You missed your last mass
Your last mass
Flip another coin
and I lashed out, a pizza delivery driver merged into traffic and I remembered Autumn and Football, running immortal and the sound of defeat in his voice as I slipped away and he slid in the mud, She said nothing and texted him while the billboards told us how to feel.
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
