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
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...
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...
working last night
turn the smoldering log
add the kindling
bring the embers up to fire
a history is developed
by living in the present
by reliving yesterday
dance to unseen
joys and sorrows
music from living life
lose their carefree haughtiness
become laden with substance
and move ever closer to us
as if longing for embrace.
An imperious sky relearning humility
apologizing for it’s distance
as it opens itself up
and softly weeps.
open those eyes
Become more wise
Step away from devices
Cease watching the tv
This lifetime is priceless
We need more unity
Warping our mentality
Are you even real?
Do you actually feel?
Gazing at your screen
Deceit all around
A guard let down
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...
They told me I take life too seriously, so I made them laugh.
They tried to say I had a learning disability,
I haven't had a B, in over 5 years, and I take advanced classes.
They said I couldn't sing, I play guitar, write my own music, (& sing) and I've been asked if I could be...
the night. As the
shadows descend and chaos rise,
let blood be spilt in the streets
as demons divide, let the black
blood drip and corrupt the living
souls of light. Make the poison
spread as death demands, let
hunters of old be anew in dark,
the flames of hell burn...
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
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...
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...
longed for your touch
Where were you
I wanted to give up
You should've been there
To shelter my heart
From this world full of sin
Where do i begin
She gets beaten
And pushed around
He gets shoved
And kicked to the ground
A little life
Didn't even get to start
A stupid act
so deeply. My heart just crumbling , and the pieces falling onto the floor in hope that he would pick them up. But he didn't. My body so numb, aching for a relief, anything to numb the torture I felt. My hand reaching for the painkillers... Pill by pill until I couldn't feel a...
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...
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...
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
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...
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...
because they have taxed me
It never ends a cycle who's path never bends
I guess a slave we will always be?
I see pain
police terrorizing in the streets
It will always come like the Florida rain
Children of the victims I hear them, they weep
Handcuffing a bleeding dead...
and my blade
ill.start.with sum tiny ones
theyll heal in a day.
then ill cut deeper
following my veins
blood running free
selfish as i am
thimking of nothing
me and my razor
best friends we are
freeing the pain of another day
all this depression
i cant cope
this is why...
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...

Fumbling with their thoughts
A few fragments but distorted
What are those syllables, but
Nothing more than contorted
Still head held high
Feeling proud for not thinking
Narcissist at his finest
Who could not fathom blinking
(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
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
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...
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...
Each time I sleep, my dreams
are filled with blood of
the innocence and dammed.
My sight clouded with shadows of
the past, I don’t know
where to turn, and I keep
running even though I’m going
to a cliff I can not
stop and I don’t know
who to ask...
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?
I wish I could be a better woman than I ever was
As I watch you slumber I daydream
My mind gets filled with such bittersweet longings.
I ask myself what have I done?
Why didn’t I slow our race to your bed?
Have I cheated myself of true happiness?
Something simple about you,
About you I would like to know,
To know the secrets of your own,
Your own I will hold in place,
In place of pieces you've left behind,
Left behind the loneliness of your soul.
Your soul the darkness reveals,
Darkness reveals truth,
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...
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’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,
