left me feelin outa place
left me feelin like i had lost the space cadet race
then she pulled off her designer wares an i knew it wasn't the case
her mind is a frown
like its pervaded by a sad clown
like she is plundered holy ground
she just sits there open eyed...
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...
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...
I just feel it's been so long,
So long that I've been holding on
I've forgotten how to sing my song.
I have to strike out on my own
But now I just feel so alone
I take a breath, I can see I'm free
I'm scared but I will live for me.
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...
Where am I from?
Just like everyone else
What they don't know
The creatures that haunt
The voices that scream
The nails that stab
From the outside
I look like you
I seem normal
What they don't know
the hurt inside
the fears I hold
What they don't know
It had bound me tightly.
The thread became heavy,
It forced my hand down.
I held tightly until I tired,
It fell from me slow as a feather.
When it landed it broke my foot,
I dare not pull another thread.
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...
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...
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...
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...
from the outside
I needed you like the sunshine
Fill my cup with the memory of you
You and us
You're all I ever needed
I don't know how to be the one that used to be your entirety
Wake from my sleep
Tears rolling down
Remind myself to breath
Open my eyes and turn...
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...
Fashion, i fancy, those locks that way
Terse, n vivid each separate –play
In th’ betwixt among tangled waves
What measure O they procured!
Ay! Baboon, thou’st surpassed she.
Jealous she, in her remotest deem,
My friend, she comics ye, in her cheeky leans
but there is shadow etched in the patches of light
there is taste of misgivings in sweet afternoon air
the heart sketches its dreamscape
but distant thundercloud ripe with storm encroaches
but it is the image that intrudes
a vision from the inner mind
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 moments right here in front of us
An act of faith or mathematics,
A qualitative explanation of reality.
From god to quantum physics and back,
"Time is a flat circle".
They can't all be right. Can they?
The inventions of being
Or being inventions?
From where we...
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...
Their minds messed up their brain damage hard for them to break free
The master want his slaves to continue to work for him
He got them chained mental & spiritually
But many have got there going to the library
unlocking knowledge they scared that we'll find
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...
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...
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 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...
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...
to find the day.
Even though the Sun has faded;
I know now if I had waited,
You’d be glad to lead the way.
I would tickle like a hound dog’s nose
Chasing smells it cannot trace.
Yet feel a life worth living,
Running just to taste you face.
Dogs can surely smell out...
but it is the way I feel often
I sat alone
And tried to think,
Of words so grand,
To put in ink.
The words came slow,
No cutesy rhymes,
No expressed desire.
No lover’s song,
No wrong to right.,
No erotic rhyme,
To fill the night.
I could not...
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
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...
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...
Everybody wants be the same & there's not enough variety.
More addicts are becoming addicted to today's technology.
Diseases are so airborne they chasing people like a highway robbery.
Constantly control by the elite like puppets on a string.
Telling their sheep to vote...
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?
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,
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...
to be, someone who's better than we are so the other wont leave.
We're not as perfect as they think
It's love that makes us appear so
And love that makes us try to be
In our pretending we do become someone who's better than we were....
And now I think that, I'm done..?
and it's original author, Tyler Knott Gregson. I kinda stoled it and made it my own! Hehe.
And take off your jacket
And with it
Every single fear
You have ever held
My arms around your neck
Will be the welcome home
To your longing soul
And take off your...
Cos when it's long
It's hard to bear.
The load of length
Coupled with time
Brings physical pain
To those who whine.
The slightest comment
A glancing blow,
Flies through your heart
Like an arrow.
But see we live
In God's good eyes
His plan so great...
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
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...
you say eyeing that dress on the shelf.
Home alone so no one can see
The person you really want to be.
You know youre male but you dont care
Its that dress youre gunna wear.
Walking torwards it excitedly
Pretty soon youll be walking delightedly.
Picking the dress up you see
(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
preacher man to preform the ceremony
Guest list of one but I won't show
Unanswered questions lead the way
Unholy thoughts are its guide
Impulses are turned into instincts and you never think in too deep about those things
Transfixed is my heart
Blue from the strain
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...
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...
Before I can remember for the ones that I cared
Before the years of hate and love, was the years of grace and fun.
Before a time of pain, I was in a time full of games.
Before I was selfish and deceiving, I was amusing and self caring.
Before college It was sad and...
chaos that's inside me falls like snow
I didn't sleep
and this girl is weak
yet somehow the sheets
have wrinkled through the night
the thoughts endlessly swirl and fight
my mind in thunderous waves and bound
the silence dances with no sound
my heart sends bursts of murderous...
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
