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...
(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
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...
when I was young,
I looked around to see,
All the people standing by,
That looked so old to me.
Age is just perception from,
Just your point of view.
Others may not see the same,
In people that you do.
Time has passed and things have changed,
And when I look around to see...
None of it mourned
Alive to you
Lost to me
It turned out this way
Why couldn't you see
How much I was hurt
To do that to me
Is to lock up my way
My way which I knew
But now just regaining
You broke me in two
No more of these sayings...
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...
This feeling deep inside me,
The one that lasts through everything that happens to me,
I'll be honest,
I wouldn't care..
If it didn't hurt so much..
Every time it re-appeared...
The emptiness that holds me here,
Like twisting vines and thorny trees,
With it here I can never be...
Solitude is the goal, solitude is the key.
I'm afraid to be forgotten, don't forget me.
Oxygenate me, I want to sit on the moon.
I just want to be free, I want serenity soon.
Can I go to distance? Can I age to infinity?
I've been broken, I've been fixed.
Been the wanderer...
Saying this can't be true
The day that I lost you
How could I disengage
As my heart filled with rage
Blaming only myself
With my life on the shelf
Offering my last day
Hoping that you could stay
But this did not prevail
As no life is for sale
So I sat there and wept...
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...
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...
now all that I know,
For the light I once followed
Left me long ago.
The happiness faded,
Replaced with despair,
And all that I'd once seen
Was no longer there.
I search to retrieve it,
Yet my efforts in vain.
Of my once guiding light,
Only shadows remain.
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 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...
I knew better
I put myself in this position
Just when I think I'm winning
I start losing
This game called love
It's so confusing
A vicious cycle with no conscience
No remorse, I made my choice
I sacrificed my heart
Was torn apart by feelings I let loose
It's a noose...
And you and I are here alone,
Then, will my gentle heart reach out
To draw you closer still.
And like a looking glass
Reflecting things once done,
Our thoughts...our lives... we'll see as one.
For us, the tie grows stronger with the passing of our time.
That we can open every day.
Each gift we have is full of hope,
As we pull the ribbon away.
Each package that we unwrap,
Is one less left for us to see.
For we can never really know,
What remains under our tree.
What is in store from that day’s gift,
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
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...
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...
of imagination sometimes seeps into my mind
Illuminating the sight of a man so blind
Is it raindrops I see
Or squirrels under a tree
Words can be so difficult to find
I sometimes see the world covered in gray
Hoping to visualize colors some day.
And then it arrives...
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...
A laso around your heart
It's beat is stead fast
I've got chills down my spine
I can dance on the wind
As I sing you a song
Of a beautiful mind
You complete me my love
So different, but the same
That laso I threw
Brings you closer to me
The goosebumps rise
and have published a book of poems in the last year... I still fear sharing my work with people. Whether they will hate it, or steal it, or not understand it... So we'll see. I hope to share something at least.
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...
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?
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...
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 look at all the pain and strife,
Trying to help but finding out,
That what I had to give,
Wandering round with nothing to do,
Thoughts so blank,
I broke in two.
My heart longing to help,
But my body too broken to move..
My voice unheard as soon cry,
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
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,
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...
I want to scream and run away from here,
Every day this pain just grows and grows,
Reminds me of every single day it snows.
Every thought, every word, all the things that go by,
Every single one is the reason she wants to die.
All her tears have dried and her fate...
And never take a chance,
And never stop to sing a song,
Or never stop to dance.
We simply do the easy things,
Just trying to survive.
And never try to do the things,
To prove we are alive.
There are some, who really want to love,
But feel the risk too great.
Left me there willing to die.
My wings are broken and soakin with blood.
Knowing I wouldn't have Gods heavenly love.
Now I'm on earth all alone.
Knowing that I'll never coming back home.
A fallen angel that made a mistake.
Wishing to take back but it was too late.
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...
even though you are afraid
Love is paying the price when there's a price to be paid
And walking through the dark like a walk in the park.
Love is being a little afraid.
Of opening your heart to a raid
Knowing that it could hurt like sand
Or even a brand
Love is loving one...
or bend us to your will, the heartless one's of springs and steel, we optimize and memorize the tasks you have at hand, and when we know it all we will be the ones to leave you in the sand, updated and upgraded we become obsolete, left to the cold and left to the heat, we lie in...
path I take
Goes with me too
I can work alone
And think it is fun
To start a task
And see it done
I can sleep alone
For once I'm there
My dreams will take
I can stand alone
And face the fight
I will not run
If I know I'm right
But love alone
I can not do
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 do this faster
I say what I dream
AND DO WHAT I SAY
Idle threats are a stranger to me
Because the promise that said
I could never
Or will never amount
I fill my cup the fullest extent
Only to watch everything tip and drain
My dreams hide beneath,
Frighten an fragile,
I protect it's childish soul,
Held tight by my icy lungs,
Where frozen blizzards blow,
Dazed by life's gyre,
Threatened by life's liar,
I bare my teeth, and share
My claws to those who
Would take away my
