I read these stories of
Being swallowed whole
In the dark
What do we know (?)
Our minds craving
Up Upon The Mountain There - Up upon the mountain there
In his arms she quietly lay
Face pressed soft against his chest
And looked out clear across the way
All the way over...
you set me on fire
it struck my chest
the spark you have
you were above the rest
never feeling your lips once
or your embrace
for me to pursue you
I was last in place
I see your...
Motions - Open, close,
the door swings its motions
the air rushes through
the cycle it seems
But where is
what makes it new?
i guess i must be some kind of badboy type...one of the facebook poetry groups gave me the boot...tossed me out on my old *** :-) LOL im a regular jessie james...i must be some...
No time for sleep
No counting sheep
Let darkness creep
Let evil reap
And tears seep
Lay in a heap
And just weep
"sanguine its metal...part two"
the metal man sits in the nights comforting shadows
only the utterances of his steam engine soul
reveal his presence
phrases like prayers still...
Deeper Stranger. - Deeper Stranger.
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...
In Sleepless Hours - 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...
Every little thing that you do
makes me fall in love with you
why I did the things that I did
made me feel like a silly kid
Why did we always used to fight
Threads Of Ourselves -
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...
who is the man that sits alone?
staring at blank papers
he gives them tone
do people not see what he desires?
no, they do not see what he desires
his head kept down
"a lean mean cruelty machine"
a lean mean cruelty machine like her
saunters into the room
thick with the thieves in her eyes
and the slow drawn tongue on her dry lips
Each and Every Night - 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...
Flashbacks run through my mind
My hands find their way to my hair
They grab, pull, scratch
"STOP IT!" I try to scream
The flashbacks keep coming
Mosaic - 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...
You - (reposting this again...sorry :) )
you were the first one who said i looked beautiful any other way.
in those godawful thick glasses.
even if i wear my hair short.
Her Death Brought Her Life - 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...
Aggggghhhhh! - When you lay in bed,
Frustration running through your head,
You want to reach out and touch,
This is all way too much
My mind would not have such a fight,
At times my life is like a ship
Caught by the ocean's tide, adrift
Without a hint of shore in sight
Without a steady guiding light
No pilot, crew; just me alone
To battle on...
Stalking - 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...
Hard to believe, a year's gone past. Time stood still, I fell too fast. December last year, I walked into a dream. August this year, apart at the seams. I found you, you healed my...
If Only They Spoke ... - 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...
She Lies Easy - 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...
Real Pain - 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
Long Distance Love - Miles of empty air between us,
We still manage to love.
Through time and space,
The affection finds its way.
Words cannot take the place
Of physical contact...
It’s not an addiction,
Really it’s not.
But that mirror,
It’s a source of affliction.
Not long ago,
I could look in that mirror,
And see nothing wrong at...
the wonderful early morning sun
the noise of my nephew playing
I thank god everyday
the gift he gave me
the hands that create
they have saved me
once long ago
Inspiration - 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.
A Little Love Story - The man of pain sat alone,The girl of hope sat in pain,Both looked at the stars, Where they touched the moons light,One so far,The other further,But the...
The Winds Of Time - 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...
I cannot see this love as all love is blinded
Seeing is believing which makes me close minded.
This helps me realise that from the very start
All I ever needed was to open my...
Mirror oh mirror
You're ruining my life
You make me go into
The kitchen and grab a knife
When I look in you
I see a fat pig
But others tell me
I'm becoming a twig...
The lighter's a trigger
I load my gun
And swallow the bullets
Straight to my lungs
With every drag
And hit I take
My thoughtless mind
Will come awake
No more mommies...
he searches for something
the world he left
he searches through the colour that is on his palette
the magic comes back with every night he paints
the white on...
Our EP Gesture Dance -
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,
Its odd, really, because I'm not expressing my feelings through it. What I'm doing is... almost like looking through another's perspective and writing it. I love creating ones that...
The Gates Of Heaven And Hell -
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
I follow my dreams
I get laughed at,
I get ignored,
I often feel trapped,
and keep my thoughts stored.
People can be cruel and very mean,
but no matter what,
I follow my dreams...
Ode To A Lost Sock - (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...
Hallucinations and voices.
I think I’m seeing
Look! There it is.
You can’t see it?
No, I swear
I’m not insane.
It’s right there!
The Mask - 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...
Garden... - 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...
"of a lesser throne"
she turned the questions in her eyes aside
and stealing away in the quiet
of the pine forest winters day
the taste of wood smoke was tangible on the sharp...
Dream for nightmares
Broken window shows each dream
Shattered lie you can't redeem
A wish upon a twisted heart
Diamond lie that ripped apart
Shards of truth a pane of glass
Driving down the road, feel the song feel the air. Empty passenger seat, because you're not there. Where have you gone, you were once beside me. Was it somethin I said, or somethin...
Im not okay
You say i'll be fine
You say my pain is fake
Touch my wrist and tell me i'm lying
When literally i'm dying
i'm not okay
Blasting music as i lay in bed
Passion lies sleeping
Underneath the embers of desire,
Awakened by need
The body knows what it requires.
Skin against skin,
Flesh against flesh,
Another day of life by the drop.
I pray to lord, help me stop.
I awake in pain, feeling shame.
Knowing soon again I'll play the game.
For the brief second with my self...
ok this the first ever poem ive ever done. so here I go.
my world was full of joy
the joker came
and her toy I became
lies and smiles
moments of love
not meaning much to you
Living in a suicide
I can do nothing
Cause I'm good at nothing
I just sit and watch
As others succeed
I'm invisible, useless
I'm laughing, falling
I'm alive, dead inside
30 inch gauge
How were the shrooms? The Beer? The LSD?
I'll show you something more worthwhile than weed.
I can show you how to steal and lie.
Trust me, it's all you need to get...
