    Ode To A Lost Sock

    (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 my alarm...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...

    Little sweet dove sitting upon the willow tree.

    Steady as she goes ..fluttering her wings for thee. Tiny blue eyes with a delicate red beak. You can barely see her, she only takes peeks. Stretches her wings to fly, but can't actually move Beckons for the winds, to silently improve The willow tree dances in the fragrant...

    Never again will I let love control me.

    Never again will I let love define me. Never again will I let Love hurt me. Never again will I let love get in my way. Never again will let love enter me. Never again will I fall in love.

    Deeper Stranger.

    Pain In These Eyes

    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? Can you...

    Deep under skin it crawls within,

    as deep as mortal man's first sin though sweet it seems, it haunts my dreams, through passages dark and hallways dimly lit, no lamp is fit, to help me find. A stain, a cursed mark, a sign; a brooding fog lies over mind On surface white, in form so innocent, The raging...

    The Winds Of Time

    Her Death Brought Her Life
