my spine, and my body curls. With deliberate strokes, your adoration for me unfurls. In the dimness, the beads of sweat lay like melted pearls. When goodbyes are said at twilight, reality itself, at our consciousness, hurls.
as if the dawnCast beads of dew upon her lipsAnd every sweet petal of sense I ownLies scattered at her fingertips,The pages of the map are tornFrom reason, veiled in lust's eclipseAs my hands caress her, like the gentle breezeOf tranquil climates, I kiss the skinOf her silken...
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
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...
who they are!
Sometimes I don't think before I speak,
Or I speak when I should just walk.
But I guarantee that my words are genuine,
I don't really enjoy small talk.
Sometimes it's not what you say, but nothing at all,
You can argue with the ignorant,
Useless as conversing...
heady heights of his enamoured soulDream drenched in the rapids of a swollen streamThat floods her well, in which his avid longing thirstHe yearns to quench, but never will,He fords the currents of these liquid dreamsAmid the labyrinth of the Briar'sTorn and tangled weave he...
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...
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...
with artless strokes, caressed.
Nor for a fervid whisper of desire,
Not withstanding all the hunger that my heart possessed,
For that the ink I spilt was not inspired.
Not for one kiss should I ever trade my passion, my art,
Nor seek such lucrative returns
From the blind...
as you know who you are
You are the person that talks with me, and hails from very far
You were one of the very first people, that I met here when I was new
Several accounts later, I'm thankful to still be talking with you
At first I was quite stubborn, and sometimes even rude...
for you is a song for me
I see red inside my head
From memories corroding dead
Take me to insanity
Take me to insanity
Dark clouds rising with nicotine
Drains the pain right through my veins
Here we go once again
Black Clouds rising Inside my head
It feels like a dream
and it's cold
I'm full of lies and spitting gold.
Hearts are sinking like a stone
words are cutting to the bone.
Drink it down
It's over now.
Blood is tainted but sublime
half awake but floating high.
All their faces disappear
all intentions turn to...
I'm not here to be loved
It whispers in my ear
A lesson that repeats
As a weight that defeats
While binding me in place
Alone on quiet streets
In my own masquerade
The lies of my charade
I pretend to be more
In hopes sorrow can fade
I acknowledge the pain
As I stand...
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...
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
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...
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
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...
Don't know how to tell the time,
Don't know have to live this life,
I'm on the outside looking in,
I'm on the inside said looking out,
Memories, a photo a page and layers,
Don't know how to tell the world I'm sorry,
Guess I keep on going even without a story...
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,
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
and of happiness and of anger and of malice and of everything else that the stars could have possibly made up of
You let them scatter all over my body
Some settle in my veins, blooming into lillies
My brain became a field of forget me nots
But by far the largest amont decided to...
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...
Ovals of amber smiling back
And your soft flowing colour
I wish to grab you up
Bury myself in your richness
Roll in your existence shouting
But I am an adult now
And the thrall of mediocrity
Has imprisoned me
In my bland partitioned office
The rustle of bills in my...
heavy breeze freighted with salt bows each blade
before recoiling back into the foam of a breathing ocean.
Words pass between walking figures,
their leisurely strides spied from a sunken hideaway
by the furtive and humorless black orbs of a ghost crab.
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...
(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
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
Hearts can be in many colors,
Blood bleeds in many ways,
Still my heart lingers more,
Because I am searching for a home,
We all need a home,
We all need a place to be,
A place where others lay,
Laying as a pack on we shall go,
Moonlight skies wake me up,
Keeps my mind racing...
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...
And I fear you'll go again,
Where did you go?
Why am I not happy?
I thought I would be,
But all I want to do is cry,
Why am I not happy?
If all is lost,
And all is gone,
If all is pain,
Why do you cause me to smile?
Where have you gone?
Didn't you realize,

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...
a serenading streamIn a tapestry bound by threads of fancy,A tangled weave of tangled dreams.The tall grass, swept by gentle rhythmStirred by an impulsive kiss,Became the whisper of a sighResponsive to my hand's caressAnd, as we lay, my eyes were drawnAbove to cloudless phthalo...

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 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...
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...
