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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
like you just stumbled into
[okay, what's less bitter than isolation?]
Seclusion. And God, does it feel good.
However, there's only so long you can hold
Your hand over a boiling kettle.
Here, let me guide you back.
Let me try and conjure up some kind of meaning in these words...
troubles of the world. The past a haunting.
Stuck inside of my F'd up mind. No one can hear me shouting.
Sleep, sleep, slumber. The Devil's got my number.
My time is up. The needle stuck. Was born to be free. But Satan lied to me.
He stole my soul for his keeping. I knew...
what I search and wait for,
and hope is soon in coming,
until reality defeats hoping
Excite my wandering mind,
challenge my mind to stay,
speak to me of joy and life,
help me see beyond strife
Tease me with your body,
make my body feel alive,
let me feel the desire burn,
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
Lies a dragon in the hills who brings you down
She's mightily black with purple eyes
Has such beauty as she sails through the skies
One glitch just may occur while she's 'round
This drop dead beauty has no sound
She swoops down and kills with such ease
She has no one...
the world should hate
hell had been discovered
When the Russians came to liberate
the white smoke had vanished
The trains had gone
Thier victims were no longer there
But the memory lived on
Most of the gas chambers destroyed
The camp leaders had fled
All that remained where the...
(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
put your hands all over it.
Picking through it with your fingers,
choosing what you'd take for your own.
You coveted my skin
so you put your breath all over it.
Hitting like an oven
leaving it parched and dry.
You coveted my heart
so you put your mind all over it...
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...
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’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'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?
that you have in my heart has a door that holds a mysterious lock
A sigh/ a song/ a face book post can suddenly unlock it to million of tears
Time has stopped when it comes to you, because it was never existed
My tears are temporary as the feelings that occur every time this...
to have to begin with?
How do you escape that beautiful yet tragic torment
That sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach
That dreaded moment when you know the only best way is to just let go
I find myself in the middle of nowhere and everywhere all at the same time...
when you wake up at 4am and its not dark but nor is it light. the cigarette smoke that contrasts off your loneliness. that colour underneath your eyes that matches the bruises on your thighs. hot coffee you forgot about drinking. having something to say but what you put out isnt...
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...
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
How can one feel so lonely amongst a crowd?
A bitter, broken heart beats wildly but falls on ears.
Eyes glassy but cheeks dry, holding back her tears.
Longing to make a connection different from rest.
Will time make her more bitter still, or can she survive this test...
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...
for the first time, it seems so simple. I saw the world in her eyes. Her eyes that were too deep and warm to hold anything but perfection. Her skin, a warm tan on a warm beach that made every tomorrow feel like yesterday. Her smile! Those teeth that flash and dazzle and glint...
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...
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...
as long as I can remember
Eclipse pain resonates rain
Every drip on my fortunate face
Facing God I forgo fate
Only oxygen still satiates
For as long as he is alone
I will bear burdens as it pours
Breathing through suffocation
I've never been so harmed
And worst still...
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...
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
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...
Everything around just isn't the same
Droplets fall gently against my cheeks
Feeling inside is a feeling of pure weak
Wear a smile
Blue veins pulse with a worry
Confusion follows .. super blurry
Dream a dream and catch a cloud
in the darkness of the night
sometimes when I gaze upon the stars of the faint light
I feel the thoughts rushing through my mind
thoughts and feelings of every sort and kind
why is it so overwhelming I do not really know
peace upon my mind, God please bestow
we know what we...
When across the crowded gathering
I see, there you are
Intoxicating beauty and grace and poise
Seemingly unaffected by the crowd and the noise
I watched you deflect suitors by the dozen
Hovering about and stalking you like a coven
I sat and we talked and I no longer had a...
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...
Auto pilot, sorted, fire lit, comb these Crimson locks n style it!!
Antibiotics, don't mix with hypnotics, shoulda read the label
What's done is done, it wasn't fun, life ain't some kinda fable
Gob was dry, was drowsy high, but not the way I like it.
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...
when I'm all alone
I have to take out a loan
on happiness, nothing less.
Now I don't need any muscle tone
to push this boulder to the designated zone.
Sisyphus laughs, belly laugh.
At least I'm not stuck down in Tartarus
going through bouts of disappointment
like a Saturday at...
future of tomorrow hold?
Many things in my mind feel lost
I try my hardest just to be bold
I fall and crumble against the sea
Mind keeps playing tricks
Wanting things to mend and be
No good thoughts even stick
Fly away to be with the birds
Soaring around only with lil cares...
for yourself in the mirror
but you aren't there
its an odd feeling
not an empty
there are desires to experience
a yearning to never wake up
this spinning sphere falling through a great abyss,
every direction a dim touch
Twin stares single breath
Even the flower that blooms
Red or grey
A fluttering butterfly
And the beating heart
Only bleeds blood
To beat life
But not love
Bearing repeating starts
Every moment is the moment you left me
