I watch them on TV.
I'm working out most every day and watching what I eat.
They tell me that it's good for me, but I don't even care.
I know that it's crazy.
I know that it's nowhere.
But there is no denying that,
it's hip to be square.
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...
To find a release–
Is what I need.
A way to bring myself back to reality,
Distorted images of confusion and chaos.
The past blurred with the tears of tomorrow,
Nothing to be heard but the endless noises of joy.
Joy for what?
What is there to be so happy about?
I am being...
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 I could be anything
The "anything" I chose was nothing
I am wasted life and wasted intelligence
To all around me, I am a hindrance.
I take, never give; I hurt, never heal.
My toxic behavior reflects how I feel.
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...
cursed cup of false paradise
I'm intoxicated with a bitterness,
Left with nothing
The aftertaste of emptiness
I basked in pure seduction
Between silken sheets of deceit
You vowed the frailest words to me
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...
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...
The girl that died of a heartache passed me in the night whispering memories of youI stood to frightened to move for fear my eyes cast a lightand the darkness she drew like a cape around her shoulders.Her tears fell like jewels on the crushed lovers rulesthat you broke to bring...
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...
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...
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...
(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
Gripping, gliding, exploding
milky magma screaming, begging to blame
pushing its way
into the summoning darkness
seeking the source of the impoverishment
collapsed flesh entombing
the inexorable melting result of collision
cracking into the vulnerable trust of want
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?
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,
For the same old question.
Will I ever be satisfied,
With anything less than perfection?
Can I jump the hurdles,
Of life's imperfect flow?
Will I contain my pride enough,
To enjoy the developing show?
The standard I've set for myself,
Cannot been reached by me...
that I came up. Crude and rudimentary of course but it was still fun to write :D
Bound by love, twine our souls,
Thou in thy lone grave left so cold.
Weep I 'gainst the tomb of thee,
For Death had taken all but me.
Years swiftly come to past,
White my hair, face downcast.
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...
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 could stare at them all night,
And dream of a love that seems so right,
Maybe all my dreams will become reality tonight.
I see my future in the sky,
It's kinda cloudy and I wonder why,
But life seems perfect in your eyes,
You're so beautiful I could die.
you immediately judge me? Have I done something to offend you? Is it the power in my walk, is it the pride in my heart that shines through me, the grace in my strides that you cause too feel this uncertainty. Why is it when I walk down the street, you immediately judge 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...
so to speak. Enjoy!
As I watch her from afar, her beauty silences my tongue. Oh, how enthralling a being she is! The way she walks with utmost elegance; her soft voice; her way of clearing an angsty mood! Is there such a word to describe the multitude of emotions that well up...
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...
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
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...
her little, dark hand to the edge
there she stared and gurggled
there was "Used to be"
unseen for months
the women with the table top back
the woman with the long white hair
Used to be is her name
she used to be a lady.
this is only 1. there are others bur today...
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...
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...
breathe the air
I should feel lucky to be alive
Yet when I'm home there's no one there
No one to kiss
No one to hug
No one to miss
No one to love
I"ve lived my life
The best that I can
I took care of my children
I've been a good man
When it's all said and done
None of it...
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...
not as great as you think,
darker than they appear.
The evidence is hear,
if caught then deadly slum,
shivers emerge down my spine knowing...
that the dark ones will come.
The mothers are riddled
crawling with the disease
cancer grabs the deadly
the disease that never leaves...
In a cold sweat
And out of breath
The tight felling of panic in your chest?
Was it that dream with the monster
or was an unknown person chasing you?
Maybe it was the dream were your falling off a cliff that always seems to have a bottemless pit
But whatever the dream, we...
Longing for her touch
She forgets while she sleeps,
Dreaming what she must
In her hours of solitude she calls out her name
Clinging to the memories that barely keep her sane
She trembles as she weeps
Begging to be found
By the same cold death
That put her world in the...
that caused me to relapse.
I fell into the rabbit hole
Digging myself deeper and deeper
To be treacherous was your only goal.
You seduced me with your lies of hope
Dangling the noose,
you tempted me with the rope.
The sweet nothings you whispered, in my ear
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...
Why must you make me wait
I feel as if I may just be bait
I feel like I'll get hurt in the end
I'm always forced to bend
But never to break
It worse than venom from a snake
Now I'm done I wont be your fool
I'm not just some dumb tool
I will always love you
the darkness and light
Consciousness descending to take corporeal form.
A stranger looking back from a distorted reflection.
The demons that gripped the shattered soul,
Driven back by nights end
Giving angel another day to fight for redemption.
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
everyone has their own limit
Away from the negativity,
when love turns to insanity
But there's no one talking,
when I find myself listening
Not even a little brevity,
or a chance at some clarity
Alone with a worn spirit,
now, it's too damned quiet
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
step, as the white noise of the breakers levitate my soul. The seagulls shriek their song as the sun bleeds orange and red into the low clouds.As the palm trees sway back and forth more violently, the noise of the surf increases. The daylight slowly drowns in the distant ocean...
by a window,
Georgian beveled glass panels,
Rainbow effect edged in the early evening light.
Blueness on your skin,
Your nakedness natural
Against the fading light
Hourglass and soft hip exponentials,
Nirvana, and obsessive desire
Right now, ecstasy, an...
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
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...
