    The Mask

    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, and wait...

    If Only They Spoke ...

    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...

    Ride or Die You always feared leaving your

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. 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 To cut...

    Will To Fight

    I place my ear agents the window to listen to

    the wind as it blows i can feel its sorrows. I relate to the wind so much so i know it's listening, i don't want to go away from this place i love. Just like it doesn't want to feel anymore of our human sorrows.

    'Page Turner' There isn't enough time For

    Behind our eyes there are more

    than lies...fears....hopes... And dreams. There is more than even we know of. The potential is limitless... Never ending... And out of this world. But is it truly possible Torrance new boundaries within our minds. Yes or no, it makes no difference.

    Another day. Another hate.

    Another day. I can not take. Another why? It kills my pride to have to stay and face today. Maybe tomorrow will kill the sorrows? Maybe tomorrow will kill the hate? Maybe the rain will wash all the pain of yesterday down the drain. And in my mind all of the cries. Louder than...

    Threads Of Ourselves

    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...

    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...

    In Sleepless Hours

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    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...

    All these thoughts Set to a swirling medley made

    for strolling madly. Let go... Fall into the void... Total, utter, surrender. Contemplation, rumination is my ruination. My ruined nation. Take me back to the start, back to the start... Write from the heart.

    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...

    I dream of childhood.

    An hour would last a day. And every next one, would be another one to play. I dream of childhood. To fight my demise. Destroy it with a stick that is a sword in disguise. I dream of childhood. Climbing trees to the top. The branches ate my future, the ground is still a long...

    Deeper Stranger.
