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...
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
(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 original take on the song tell me what you think
You and me, we made a vow
I stood in front of the priest and in front of all our family and said the words that should have bound us for eternity together
For better or for worse
We were the perfect match until you...
A reluctant witness, to a rare desert fog.
Watched a watery sun have his way with her.
She seemed submissive.
Leaving only tears on a bystanding landscape.
I do guess, soon enough, there will be nothing left of her.
I sat…and did nothing.
I got this! Go sit down! Go sit down! I'll check it myself. I'll check it myself. Come-boo-ga! Come-boo-ga! Shwalalalalala, magic, magic....There you have an goat. There you have an turtle.Shwallalalala
Shwa Shwa Ss-sshh-sh-sh shwalalala
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...
Sometimes occasions come our way,
Inspiring memories good and bad.
The occasion that is now close at hand,
Brings me memories of my dad.
The things he taught me have stayed in place,
And have become a map for me to tread.
As he told me about the things in...
words that an amateur writer forces into stanzas. words that a confused teenager scribbles into their lit textbook. words that a social worker whispers to her sick wife.
a description of how heavy my chest felt when our song came on. a description of how the violent tide...
Some way, that wound
Pulls its weight in pain
Hard touches will perplex
Ones entangled sublimely
But even in the scorching sun
It was cold, and thinking was dumb
Even the rain drop that shattered smoothly
Could not bear its sadness
Hoping to bounce back
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...
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...
Over empty words and shattered dreams
the heart you broke with the words you spoke
and with the words that are still unsaid
But just like always I'm already in your head
all in the lies you tell yourself
all the feelings you thought you felt
So what is your comfort to me...
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...
Is it truly true that I am limited by me? If I could paint a picture without saying it 'twas I, where would I dare put myself in days not yet passed by?
What medium would I use, a pencil or a pen? What of marks I did not mean, what would I do then? Do I leave it all to chance...
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...
that little tiny thing
Wealth was paid in offspring
In the Den the many faces
All frolicking as one
Boredom was fecund for another
A cage gave birth to many
Rather random imaginations
All made huge machinations
By blood they share many...
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...
You throw shots back with him like the one who left you taught.
Sometimes you catch him looking at you through heartbreak like your body is the answer to time travel,
but you never played basketball
and he was never any good.
Sometimes you throw your arms around him...
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...
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...
..to be alone with you.
Alone with your night shades and dark secrets.
Alone with under the cover of a forgotten darkness.
Alone with a symphony of quiet callings and lonely sounds.
Alone with the moon as she traces her smile across the sky.
I have been waiting all day...
2012) I didn't mean to hurt her. That horrible night back in November. I kicked her, had her stomach bruised.She changed because of the dope she abused. We promised to live a clean life but she kept ******* up all the time.I became completely psychotic knowing that the...
and turning those are my angels wings that your burning your feathers still burning fall around us like black snow time stills as Cristal tears fall from your eyes and time stills as Cristal tears fall from your eyes the world around you cry and howl with pain you can't express...
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,
as they dragged her away.
Sat stunned with fingers through the cage…as they dragged her away.
Raced tears down by-standing faces…as they dragged her away.
Closed ears from silent screams…as they dragged her away.
We all watched…as they dragged her away.
don't know how I'd cope with out that place I call home
I just want to be my self
don't know how to be someone else
so let your conscious win
it'll get you out of the mess your in
so remember the further you climb the harder you fall
doesn't take long before...
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...
Before the sun has warmed my fears.
Before I spend the day looking for you.
Before I try and remember what you said.
Before I swear never again.
Before I hope you call
Before I remember you won’t
I am the loneliest at night…
After the sun has left me.
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
her torso i hear
a dull whump,
and the sounds that accompany mouthwash
more of the same but different.
a soft machine
tightly wrapped in bands of blobs and threads
some tough, some greasy
stacked imperfectly, out barely an inch
and that spark
of 17 or so years...
2013) Drinking tea on a fine Monday morning. Looking out the window, seeing nothing. Rocking back and forth on the chair and my cats are ******** all over the place. And your toasts are burnt, looks like black tar.But your just staring, staring out into space. At the window. You...
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...
October 4, 2013) You can only hear thunder when the weather turns cold and the turtles in the sea becomes old. All your secrets has been told. Self becomes bold and Lilith took your soul and sold it for a sack of pure Thai Heroin.
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...
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...
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...
You cant see the heartache
That you've put me through
Destroying me with your words
Not showing me your love
That was all id seen from you
As i was growing up
I asked you where he was
You said that he walked out
After all your lies
You still want me to be proud
For all the...
