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...
I happened [stumbled] upon her one day,
Clad in a muddied dress, in disarray.
Damsel why on this floor dost thou lie?
Reply, "I am alive? I am ali-"
Deaden thy waggling tongue fair maid
Such babble thou speweth forth! Her mumblings fade.
I have but one request 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
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 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 find...
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...
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...
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
after night, I lay down in my bed... Starting to be curious
Then I think about all the problems, the passive-aggressiveness, and the fights. I start to get a little furious
Then I contemplate the times we smiled at each other, watched a movie, and laughed
I then want to just...
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...
for a better world but we cannot not escape the reality of becoming famous.
We go off to the joy that we felt, but not all the drugs in the world can save us from ourselves.
There's nobody watching.
We give our clothes to pay the bills.
We are attempt, from cutting ourselves...
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...
People see. People judge. But who are we to judge others? People make mistakes. People change. Everyone has regrets because it's normal. No one is perfect. Nobody is the same. But what we all share are our emotions. Isn't that crazy? To know that no matter what you go through...
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
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...
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...
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...
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?
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...
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...
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...
where I want to go
I do what I want to do
I speak out against injustice
I am a woman
I own what I want to own
I live where I want to live
I allow myself indulgence
I am fortunate
If I lived in another era
If I lived in another part of the world
If my culture were different...
it is time to awaken from this slumber
I no longer crave your love lies, for I only covet the absolute truth now
I will begin again, I will love again, I will find someone deserving of my gift
You have left your mark on my soul, but it is a scar that will fade in time
It can be a remimder that I still remain,
From the sky to the ground,
A single drop that makes no sound,
In the rain it can be hard to stop the tears,
At times it feels like a lonesome world of fears,
No fire can be lit, or the world be seen,
Rain takes everything, thunder...
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...
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...
so familiar with
Sitting on the front porch looking up, always looking up
Wishing on stars and dreaming of places far away
The cool breeze on my face tossles my hair
Sounds of nature that I first hear one by one
An owl nearby but not seen
Crickets and frogs playing their...
but sleep nowhere near, the pain I know causes my eyes to tear. Eternal rest is such a lie, your throat is burning, your mouth is dry. Left alone with only one thought, even though I've won every battle I've ever fought. I can't help but feel like my life is done, this is the...
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 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 outside me is not afraid
Not full of pain,or even shamed
I smile and all those ignorant fools believe
Of course nothing could be wrong with me
My eyes are dry,I do not shed tears
For that gift was taken away from me dear
I laugh and talk and play along
Keep on existing...
In a way that feels as if love never existed before us...
It was created just for us, you and I alone…
My heart beats only for you…
In a rhythm that only you will understand...
Only you can hear this my love…
You are like a dream within a dream…
So close but...
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...
you are in every beat of my heart
You are pulsing through in a rhythm only you know
Always under my skin touching every single piece of me
In my thoughts, in my dreams, in my lonely waking hours
I feel you, but you are gone, you are not here with me
I am left alone with nothing...
within as I try to speak the words of how I feel in this world. Know the sorrow and joyful tears that shed from my eyes at the same time. Come to know me as my strength grows from within to fight against things that do harm. Fighting against the darkness, the cruelty, the...
No longer will I suffer,
This world is too cruel,
As the bottle grows lighter,
The haze comes closer,
Soon I am embraced,
By it's familiar arms,
As the haze tucks me in,
To a long, unceasing sleep.
but you must stay strong to get through the rough. Good memories will help you through this, just remember every moment can't be bliss. The bad will help you appreciate the good, but in times of bad we don't see it as we should. There is so much beauty in this world, but...
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...
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...
that I met on YouTube. She's an amazing singer and I always write poems to compliment her. But once I made a bad joke and I really want to apologize, would this be okay:
Loveliest voice of musical beauty,
Chiming like a bell.
Sing she with much alacrity,
And wrought a Heaven...
Why you actin' like what I want
amounts to games, and ain't about nothin'?
Granted, I need much less than I want
But is that cause for you to front?
I think not, so stop frontin'.
I oft wonder why [or how] you bring me to places
we've never even been?
but now we are an obscure entity that once was and will always be in the compounds of my mind manfesting itself as unwanted memories or a disruptive dream bringing to surface all the love that once was leaving nothing but pain in its place the morning comes.
Now your voice...
that she crys
Till she sleeps everynight
Tears in her eyes
But she stays
And her eyes
Hide the pain
And her lies
Hides her rain
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...
(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!)
