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...
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 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.
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.
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...
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
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
playing in the leaves
that fall in Fall
from tress who don't care
to be ressurected
this time around :
hide your essence
between branches fallen
to land in the form of crosses;
under rocks, hiding
their drowning faces
in the puddles
of heaven's tears;
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...
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...
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
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.
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...
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
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...
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?
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...
It wasn't my fault.
I am your loss
I'll have greater gain.
Don't think you left me broken
For weeks and months and years
I'm going to bounce back
I'm going to prove you wrong.
You weren't ready
For a commitment like me
I was ready
You pretended like you were...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
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...
mountain, you are king
Here, you walk among the gods
Sweat, blood, and tears fueled your climb to its peak
While others failed the ascent
You clawed your way to the top
But then one day, your once sure step falters
Your strength and guile proves lacking
Your boldness fails to...
(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 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...
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...
. I gotta warm up again..
Streaming across the sky—
That define curvatures beyond space.
Bring me to the light—
For I crave the knowledge
Tell me what it means,
Tell me what lies beyond the lights—
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...
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...
images with my words
brushstrokes to show the texture
windows to my worlds
yet all i seem to do
with words upon the page
is stir up old memories
echoes from ghost songs
so i sketch and work the feelings
as paths into my soul
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...
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...
and I was captivated by the very mirage of you.
I once was told that something
too good to be true
Yet, I was captivated by
the very mirage
The very light of you;
a double rainbow;
a flashy array of deception
to the silver dollar eyes
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...
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...
my eyes just above the fence stealing a peak at happiness
I see enough to quell my hunger
Enough to stop the grumbling of my stomach and fuel my imagination as I paint a picture of my own,one with me in it.
I see myself,over the fence laying on the ground
If I shut my eyes tight...
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
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
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...
tangled roots of an old mountain pine….its trunk serves me well as a backrest as i look out over the cliff watching a mountain stream become a waterfall. To my right and coming from behind me, dropping some 70 feet below, the water twists and turns between time smoothed...
