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...
Mountain evening, fading glory of a day long past,
Heather, purple in the sea of green mountain top grass,
Lovers entwined in winds
Chilling, light from the southwest,
Wide arms and the head I love
Buried in my arms and chest.
cant talk about you though 7 years its been
It hurts so much
But i hide the pain away
The cuts stay unseen
Your beautiful face
Stuck in a wooden frame
Behind that glass
How am i still sane
Loosing you nearly killed me
Im surprised I'm still here
To walk another day...
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...
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...
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 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...
Help you through struggles, heartbreak and strife
I'll always be here when you need to cry
Shower you with love and affection until those cheeks turn dry
Love unconditional, my true love
You give me me such strength to rise above
Youll own my heart even after I grow old and...
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...
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...
rug, out of sight, to my life's infernal final plight. "Home sweet home" is what they say, those that see the light of day.Ripped from my mind's inner dove, torn from expressions of other's love. Living in one continuous day of night, those walls enclose my shared inner fight...

Welcome to the world. Enjoy your horrifying journey through life. Let's see how much you'll suffer when darkness will consume you. Making your days full of aberration. You'll wish you was never born in the 1st place. Like me. I entered Hades when I was 13...
(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
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...
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...
All hope is gone. All happiness is gone. All friends are gone. All money is gone. All freedom is gone. All families are gone. All care is gone. All kindness is gone. All opportunities are gone. All peace is gone. All health is gone. All sunny days are gone. All heavens is...
why did you come here --
is it to take me tonight?
The face of an angel
but with eyes as deep as the grave,
a never ending hole
leading to a world
I can see within you there lives pain,
bags you yet to touch ---
Outside a shield surrounds you;
please, I ask...
is crazy. The meat of existence is hazy.We all delude ourselves, no matter how deep one delves. No matter how smart one is, all this can't be summed in a quiz. How do things amount? You think you've got it figured out. Its still just YOUR understanding, however far its expanding...
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...
but the fear of losing u is too great to bare. I just want you to be near, so i can whisper sweet things in your ear and tell you things only you can hear. Put my hands around your waist you think i just want a taste,but what i want is to be your dear and forever feel your grace...
2012) I'm not gonna lie, I've been through a story. The wacky journey of mine can't be told in a hurry. Imagine life without morning. I've lived a dramatic story with wackiness blended into the story. Met a man that saved my days. Picture Romeo and Juliet on cocaine. Mad Hatter...
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...
The train would soon be here
There was no ambiguity
There was no murkiness
There was no mistaking it
The train was coming nearer
There was no turning back
The train was bearing down upon us
The train was rapidly approaching
The was no possible way out now
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...
working on for quite some time.... I'd like to see what you guys think...
"... And the pain has aged me like fine wine
In time, I'll find the courage to love again
A new beginning for every end
For love without exception
yields a love that exceeds every expectation...
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...
dripping out my arms, falling apart
Screaming within, love, hate and fire
Come wash away my sins, show me desire
Take my hand , lead me through the dark,
Show me how to live again, while I express my pain through art
Walking through the flames, burning like it's hell, cast away...
and its time to enter it's strong fortified walls , that room which we built together will be ready , and we can lay our desires to rest upon each others bodies and express our long awaited passions beneath cool sheets and soft pillows and embrace as the sun sets and the waves...
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’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,
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
Dragged down below, bleeding in the dirt...
Eyes full of hate, heart cold as ice
Room so silent you could hear the mice
Silent sighs fill the air
Face full of beauty they say but I say where?
Frozen thoughts of the past
How much longer will I last.
Chained up love...
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...
No matter what i do
You wont like me anyway
You pick on me
Because im smaller than you
My heart cant take the hurt
This im sure is true
You ripped it out
Tore it to shreds
Burned it to ashes
Stomped on it again
Stabbed me in the back
Rubbed my hurt in my face
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
they are plenty.
The sorrows of life are but few;
But the sorrows just take all our energy,
No matter the good that we knew.
We don’t always take time to be happy,
It just seems too easy to be sad.
We too often punish for goodness,
And praise those who want to be bad.
You ripped it to shreds
Thats what happened
The day that you left
It burned so hot
But you didn't care
You laughed in my face
You said you'd be there
But you left me
Alone and cold
You left me here
With no one to hold
To wrap me up
Keep me warm at night
Shelter my heart...
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
seas of disjointed thought fragments, making sense out of nonsense, and nonsense out of remains of linear thought. A world I visit even in my waking hours. Sometimes I'm puzzled by the intricacy of nonsense; interesting, but rather meaningless. Its a place that is refreshing...
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...
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...
