cage of ribs
clutching to the ethers of dusty practices reborn
starlit and spreading from an infinite source of intervention
until I too begin to shine as if I were some nebulous
vortex crackling impossibly against the dilated orbs
of those who dare peer up into the core of a...
move an inch
At the barrel of the gun
I didn't even flinch
Whispers from a black tongue
greasy, grey and rough
I've been running for a lifetime
but I haven't run enough
And it shouldn't phase me
but the matches you admire
left me soaked in gasoline
and can still set me on fire...
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...

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
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 have all of our memories, the good ones haunt me too.Thinking of where you are now just stabs me right on through.Today marks the day that you've been gone 11 years.And I'm here to say that I've survived your loss.And I could never forget that there were always two of you.This...
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?
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...
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...
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...
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
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
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...
house. The house where everything began. The woman glares at it, the broken windows, the ashed wood where a fire had swept through a few years ago. She shakes her head in disgust, turning and walking silently into the night, where she truly belongs.

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...
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
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...
(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
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...
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
She loved it. I thought I'd share it.
Whenever I touch ur soft face,
Or when u pull me close into ur embrace,
My happy heart is complete,
There is always something u do,
To cause it to skip a beat,
Ur body teaches me something new.

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...
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...
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...
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
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...

Siren of the Deep
I find your footprints that lead this rocky shore. Scraps of your clothing tossed apart without sanity. Cold hearts of treason that runs amok. The pure madness upon this calamity which I am now sad. Darkness has set and the moon...
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.
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,
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...
in the dark for far too long
The scattered pieces were done wrong
Each cutting of ourselves
Hidden parts of us indwelled
Time to look where we never dared
Forgotten shards were just as scared
Open arms and heart allow
All our selves come together now
We are one in this form...
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...
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,
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...
