The day we first wrote
I remember the date of that day
Like it was yesterday
I will never forget it
But most importantly I will never forget you
That night I couldn't sleep
My mind consumed with you
Tossing and turning
Giddy with excitement
I would calm down
Just to get...
Where people mostly spit & sneeze
I leave it there but for one reason
So most will see that it's been seasoned
Take it, break it, as they might
It's toughened up and it will fight
Stains, Bruises, and mostly scars
Proof that it has been to wars
But upon my sleeve yet...
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...
the time when your head is turned
so they can't see my face.
They don't see how much they really hurt me.
what their words can really do.
My tears are for all your harsh words,
for making me believe I really am nothing.
I'm not worth your kind words.
as some chocolate
Touches Soft as the rain
She's a Beautiful woman
With a Beautiful name
She's both Lovely and Gracious
She's such a sight to behold
A true Lady of Greatness
And her heart's made of gold
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...
the stream of conscious of my oldest kid, he's 11 and autistic. It can only be an attempt to understand his flow of thoughts and feelings over the last 2 years or so...
I don’t want Mommy to hit me anymore
So now I say I love spankings
She said they’d stop two years ago...
And I lose
All I wanted was to love you
All wanted was you to care
But I see you despise me
Now our relationship cannot grow
You never got to see the real me
The one that glows oh so quietly
I'm sorry I never showed you
Maybe that's why you left me too
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...
Guttural grumbles of beasts eager
To copulate, but tarnish
Crowns adorning a delicate terrain
Contours and curves bask aglow
For the blinded chivalrous foreigner
Touching with eyes
Nourishing feasts for a mind to dine
Wooing the halo of wisdom's beauty
A kiss in...
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,
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
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...
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...

I've been rhyming a real long time. Hell, it goes all the way back to my formative years when I was writing those "Roses are Red" poems for my mom. 1 time I wrote a real good one too. I don't remember what I wrote but I do remember my mom's reaction to it...
when I call you "My Queen."
For you are the most royal thing I have ever seen.
I love you so much it's a shame and a sin,
Lord only knows where your heart's always been.
Are you hiding from me my love? That sweet, soft smile...
Won't you sit down? Come stay for a while.
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...
places that occupy my mind
I see the darkness that still lurks there
I see the battles I did not choose; I see the scars
I cannot see why or how it could be different
I cannot see how anyone could expect it to be
How much pain can one heart take
It either breaks or it...
are quite demanding
These visions I have, are so outstanding
These visions I see can be so blinding
These visions I see tend to be binding
These visions I have they show no color
These visions I have seem to be duller
These visions I see are slowly fading
These visions I see...
but toss and turn
I can not sleep, for you I yearn
I can not sleep, these wounds they burn
I can not sleep, these tears won't learn
I can not sleep, or eat, or function
I can not sleep, your false assumption
I can not sleep, try as I might
I can not sleep, it's just not right...
But I joined in with the world
And cried that September day
I saw the whole thing unfold
On my tv set
13 years later
I still can't forget
The crying people
The thick black smoke
The realization that this was no joke
The raw emotions
People who risked thier lives
(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
Deep in his eyes.
She knew he worried
Knew he wasn't flawless
But those eyes, Oh
She'd do anything for those eyes.
Sit threw a thousand storms
And a million attacks
Just to know that that smile
Could come back
She held his hand in hers
And tried to smile threw the...
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 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...
complementary and symbiotic, they go together
Patience can be spent coaxing shy turtles from their shells or
waiting till speedy rabbits actually stop to smell the roses…
Patience may focus on drawing out touching lips for the first time or
it can languidly test 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...
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...
word- that makes grown men fall
One word- that just makes me wonder
One word- brings me up from under
One word- that can make me smile
One word- that describes a specific style
Of sense, of wonder, and amazement
I feel that it has no replacement
Whether it makes sense or not...
Too many sheep are hypnotize & not watchin. Diseases are made to destroy what they can't kill.You gotta pay attention to what's fake & what's real.There's chaos that they trying to put order.But more becoming awake as we continue to move forward.As time goes on there are things...
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...
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...
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...
to eye. He promises me he wants to spark this new flame with me. You tell me "what we have here you want it to last forever."
"Baby let's start this new thing." You whispered. His lips touches mines with the taste of seduction. He directions me to bedroom, and lays me down...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Your armor shines and glistens upon the sun
Your helmet glows brilliant gold and silver
Your face illuminates the radiance of love
Your eyes delve deep into the world and universe
Crisis and desire conflict in one spectacle
Damnation upon you and I forfeit our lives
Your halo and...
cant feel anything
as she is cutting shapes of butterfly's into the paper thin
draws little rivers i cant swim
but she smiles and says thats fine
cause she likes me long as i don't talk too much
'specially bout her childhood mutt
she dragged that mutt every place
had really sad...
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...
thus bringing to life what once was deceased
It is an act that deprives your purity
And yet it is referred to as maturity
How is it wise to be playing by their rules?
To follow the devils notebook, made for fools
It coursing through your veins like an infection
Until it is...
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
that comes from up above
with a heart so pure, that's what you love
But secretly, it's from below
forged in hell, you just don't know
it did not use to be this way
and was not turned black, just in one day
she's honest with words, that are not spoken
and your promises are...
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
when you're this empty inside
No nook or cranny to conceal
The feelings you pretend are not real
No way to save yourself from the demon
Who knows how to make you wish your life was done
Where do you hide
Where do you hide when you're empty inside
At least when...
that understands me
anybody that really cares
is there anybody who can feel my pain
is there anybody who can
relate to me , resonate with me and agree with me
is there anybody who can spend alot of time with me
and enjoy spending time with me
is there anybody who can hold my...
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...
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
