out against the water
The bottom of your coffin
Leads me to this place
Lovers have no devilish device
Just fools that take heart's only ache
Constrained within emotion
Sanity's heart disguised
So it is that I bury my mourning
Pushed down to the dead of sea
Down down to the...
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...
who died in childbirth complications - a very strange way to die in 1986 in the US.
(Kit died the Sunday before Thanksgiving in 1986)
I saw a woman today who looked just like you:
Her hair was the same color and she wore it like you used to.
I watched her eating lunch and...
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
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...
entwined, bathed in wine
Horizon is a blurred painting
cigarette smoke circling around us.
Everything seems like a melancholic dream
traces of analog photographs and bad aromas.
There is no voice to comfort you
just fingerprints showing up on my neck
and you tell me you destroy...
pale tinges of mystery
dim gold and blue
mingle in cold desire.
Dreams so far away
burning secrets kept by twilight
hollow in their promises,
What is to come
in this translucent reality
between real and unreal
inside this singularity of fate...
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...
will have crushed
When you shut the door
Each year that goes by
One less tear ....
will shed from my eye
This cold truth
Stands this chance for reason
As love changes
Like autumns fall
Bleeding leaves to these seasons
The anger may hurt
Yet time comes and goes
Like long ago...
As a veil in your thoughts and dreams
Image of my red lips and red hair
Is what you remember
But no life is behind those thin eyes
While the real ones gleamed that colour
Like the rest of me
Shards tearing us apart
Or perhaps we were always torn...
Estranged to our own life set into the motion
Constantly trying to make them see
The perception of us they have ain't really
Growing up too fast in a world so cold
Forgotten by those who weren't supposed
Deception we could see in there eyes
Sometimes even pure despise...
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...
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...
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...
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?
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
and asking, Why are we here?the vessel fills.the overflow so long-awaited,so striven for;the gentle overflow is so soothing,such relief compared to theempty, negative, lonely longing.the cascade finally brought to life,the ripple set free to skip lightlyand gleefully over the...
So alive amid dying light,
Embraced by the night,
Illuminate with unseen bliss.
The earth is your canvas.
Scary, yet I’ve no fear.
From afar I see slow dancing:
On haunted soil, frolicking
In ragged dress with messy hair,
Awkward steps oh, so dear.
Remove your cozy boots...
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...
was written "for" my mother:
Fiery words shot across the room -
Bullets to the heart, bombs to the soul.
As the shrapnel settles and the dust clears,
there is a deadly silence.
We see the victim reappear - cautiously,
from the ruins of her former self.
No human, no sensitive...
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...
Sometimes occasions come our way,
Inspiring memories good and bad.
The occasion that is now close at hand,
Brings me memories of my dad.
The things he taught me have stayed in place,
And have become a map for me to tread.
As he told me about the things in...
Colder air is on its way.
The arrival of winter snowstorms,
Gets closer every day.
The warmth of family kitchens,
The smells of pies and bread,
Helps to temper the transition,
And lessen winter dread.
The darkness outside the window,
Is broken by the glow.
Feeling the chilly fall breeze
Time for Jeans and Hoody Attire
Snuggled up next to a Bon Fire
Underneath the stars above
Remembering the day We fell in love
The sounds of the crackling fire
All the beauty in you, that I admire
Deep down underneath it all
This is what I...
roots probed and dredged
the sodden clay of his youth
with such heavy hands, they formed a mould
from which a man inside was cast...
and, in that fierce furnace, all green was scorched
from his melting red brick eyes
and, as his mould was crudely cracked
he fell silent and...
needs to know why
The other part doesn't care
I always tried to be fair
I truly cared about you
Thought what we had was true
It's time to say goodbye
Wish you would just say why
Is it something I did or said
Maybe your messing with my head
I hate you not talking to 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...
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,
remembering all the journey we both know
for me nothing has changed
only the time has gone away
Love is what i feel when i think of you
Love is when my heart beats so fast for you
Love is when i give all unconditionally for you
that I am afraid of, feeding into me; slipping each vessel into a tight vein. the look you give, as if you are happy with my smiling; seeking me deeper into your sickly sweet horror. many days will go with no drowned out sound. then you are there, hovering over a innocent mold...
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
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
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...
They disappear in the fog of disagreement.
I am tired of trying
There are no points to be made
No arguments to win.
The only thing left to do
Is pick a direction and drive
And disappear like the words
(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
But i cant bring the courage to speak
No matter how hard i try
My voice becomes so weak
So i found a better way
Got out me pen to write
I wrote about the good things
I wrote about how you changed my life
First line was how you smiled
How it could shine so bright
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...
you turned my world upside down
I stopped answering
Silently grasping help
Hoping for notice
Theres no way you haven't feel fishy before
My ears divide voices
Yours aren't cold, its ******* freezing
Do you really turn a blind eye
Whenever I beg warmth
Ignoring me, who slowly...
