heart wants to say...
... Life is strange...
... Bleeding lust's redemption...
... Failing to mention that love has an existence...
... ******* breeds desires of passionate innocence which you fail to see through your storm of persistence .
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,
mind when you
Go on your tirades
You yell and scream
You accuse me of breaking
Promises to change.
You act as if I'm a monster.
I never cheated on you.
I never turned my back on you
I always stood by you
And when I say I am here for you
You attack me and shut me out.
I fall in love with everyone. well every man at least.
if they give me attention, listen...care
it sweeps me right off my feet.
my bf. .he never hugs me, hardly touches me or speaks.
tears fill my eyes when somebody hugs me
no strength left, I go weak.
this loneliness is...
Her nails painted pink,
Eyes rusted shut.
They say the distance killed her.
The coroner had a hard time
Her heart had grown too swollen
then dried too quick.
I wish I had told her at
the time that
happiness doesn’t last.
But instead she went...
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
so deep my lips can't split to speak...
... Fear of rejection while holding you in my eyes; I see...
...I love with my heart bleeding down my arm; your warmth I seek...
... I lose sleep...
...The sound of your voice; I need...
...Music to my soul; I keep...
until I saw you
I liked you until I met you
I wanted to love you until you started talking
and then I realized
maybe it was never you that I wanted
but the dream
no the idea of you I had in my head
I painted you so perfect
maybe my expectations were a bit to high
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...
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...
of who I will become,
Never giving up will cause me to reach my chosen destination by the beat of my own drum,
I will overcome, though my soul is old, my heart stays independently young,
I can overcome whatever is negatively plunged at me by some.
I am blessed in spirit by...
then I’d lead her to the summit all the way
If she were the night I would sleep soundly through the day
If she were the day, then I would dream of her all night
If she were a tree that I would wrap my arms around her and hold her tight rest my head
In the autumn I would...
drum musical heart beat is this storm beating down inside of me...
... Reminding me of how empty life can be.
Raging wild like the wind your energy blows right through me and I feel it's whip teasing me so lovely...
... Reminding me how sweet a friend's love can be.
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...
Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead.
Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again.
Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...
Defeated and mistreated
Ruined and cursed
Could it get any worse
The words run
In my head
Thats what he said
Thats what he said
And if i didn't get it
He'd hit me over the head
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...
Dressed in black
Our shirts tear stained
On looking a hurtful sight
Watching you go down
How is it so hard to believe
This is it, its the end of your round
As you get lower
The boys start to shout
Slapping their chests
Stamping their feet on the ground
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
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
that slowly slipped one morning into a mist,
like a lover's lost affection for lips once kissed
and sipped so sweetly like little nips of vermouth,
and never returned? Where is the joy of my youth,
that made me shake with delight and fear at a tryst...
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...
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...
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...
That I may experience their deaths
Over, and over, until mine eyes awaken
For though i may sleep,
I shall know no rest
For ever, and ever...
Let your vengeance course through me
Thy rage inflict weeping sores upon the soul
That i may live once more,
And in light of day, devour...
because I feel ashamed, but because I'm afraid of the discrimination I will get...I love everyone and everything...When we have a conversation and open up to one another, I guess Ive opened up a little to far...Now it seems to me we are right back at the start...We never speak...
all evening, and all night existing as one only in the mind and out of pain's sight.
Lover making love with no one but myself all the time; sharing with no one but myself my life.
Only laughing to the sound of my own thoughts, reads, reacting to needs; simply looking forward...
(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
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...
as the enemy and shut me down
Your words are bombs
Insults exploding inside my heart
I hear the crash over and over again
Ages after the devastation
You close the door in my face
You see me as an invader and the enemy
You see me as the root of all evil
You seek to destroy me...
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...
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...
verses laced with love
And although Id always find her art appealing
I can't be with her
This thing that she wants will never be enough
She doesn't believe me when I say I'm no longer good for her
I love her still
And I always will
But I'm not willing too go down that road...
what you gave me left me wanting more.
Your waves rushed over me and I floated, feeling weightless
Then sank down and scraped along the jagged ocean floor
And tumbled beneath the surface until the tide dragged me to shore.
As I lay there on the beach
Blistered and bleeding, I...
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...
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...
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...
Praying and wishing that it'll all be over soon.Not wanting to sleep,Not wanting to cry.Too hard living,But not easy enough to die.Drip, drop, drip,Can you hear the blood in this sinful home?No one knowsNot to trust her alone.I the serenity she falls weary,In calamity she feels...
Will she ever know how much i love her. I cant tell her how i feel. I keep myself hidden from the world only she knows of my being there. Everyday as she comes sits there talkn to me. I want to tell her that only she can set me free from compelete dark dispair. Her eyes seep...
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 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...
