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...
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...
memory of him.
The fall. I remember the fall with you. I remember walking through the neighborhood in the brisk air...the color of the leaves changing...walking hand in hand without a care in the world. I remember sitting on the porch talking hours on end about everything and...
From within the forgotten dream,
A memory of what has yet to be,
Shall shape life's understanding.
Amid all of my madness,
From within all that I gleam,
The memories can still foresee,
All that is withstanding.
Amid all that I attest
From within what does redeem,
A memory of...
release the dark in me
release me make me feel free
this day i won't forget
this sun on me,God's gift
that make me breath
heat over me
glow my brain
take the sorrow from me...
fix the contact from my soul
to the sky...
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...
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
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...
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...
all evening, and all night existing as one only in the mind and out of pain's sight.
Lover making love with no one but myself all the time; sharing with no one but myself my life.
Only laughing to the sound of my own thoughts, reads, reacting to needs; simply looking forward...
and came across it again, not very good but whatever)
To her who I admire from afar
The one who makes me feel
Like there is nothing in this world
I cannot do
To her who has captured my heart
And ruthlessly holds a grip on it
Unknowingly having all of my affection
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...
First comes the lion tamer
Then the clowns
With their wide smiles and silly shoes
To welcome you.
A two headed child will entertain you
Juggling and dancing to the tune.
Next is the one-legged tightrope jumper who'll amaze you with his balance.
And last but not...
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
but I have written poetry since I was young as one of my many outlets for anxiety. Since high school I have become deeply depressed and suicidal (I tried street Napil once because I can't tell anybody but it didn't really help it just made me crazy impulsive). Anyway now that...
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...
you held my hand
and we are thirteen again
We made our bed under a tree
a promise we kept under its shadow
we were kings and we were free
our sky was red, orange and yellow
Your tall boots covered in mud
my torn jeans drenched in water
we fell like leaves graceful and...
Are you afraid of me?
Don't be scared,i am here.
I'll stay with you and keep near.
Be happy,my dearest.
Don't be sad.
For i am there.
I'll be here when you're asleep.
And here when you're awake.
My arms wrapped around you
When you shake.
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...
you will encounter those who take poetry too lightly, and those who take poetry too seriously. The former will give you no real indication of their true opinion of the merits of the poem, while the latter shall reject it out of hand, or be entirely unsatisfied until you write it...
my lifes overflowing with confussion,
our life may twist and turn to appear as an illusion,
At the begging our DNA had been split was it a blood transfussion?
Is what we see just an ambient occlusion,
Im having a bit of trouble coming to a complete conclusion.
(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
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 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...
A fresh start
A change in date
All of this part
Of an imminent fate
As time goes on
The sky shines clear
The sun now upon
The horizon so near
In a cynical loop
From the people we meet
To the endless hoops
It has no meaning
Yet causes so much grief...
Your armor shines and glistens upon the sun
Your helmet glows brilliant gold and silver
Your face illuminates the radiance of love
Your eyes delve deep into the world and universe
Crisis and desire conflict in one spectacle
Damnation upon you and I forfeit our lives
Your halo and...
Is tossed and turned
Within a microcosmic play
Within my eye
As tumbling scenes
Fall from eye's lip
Relived unto the tipping point
And I within each drop
My eyes let fall
A piece of me
By fate and memory
Imprisoned in anguish
And so I cry and...
You were the light
In life you shined
Radiant and bright.
You could never see the beauty
The beauty of your heart
The beauty you brought
I sit and wonder why.
Must a person like yourself
A person whose aura is like a sunset.
The warm glow
The feeling of...
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...
Nothing but smiles, truth be told...
But behind the smiles, no one knows what lies...
That every night he weeps and cries...
Night after night he lies awake and thinks...
Why not down those pills with a few drinks?
But something tells him that he wants to live...
If you can, give me a look, a word, one letter.
If you can, tell me you’re all mine, tell me it wasn’t a joke, tell me a lie.
If you can, look me in the eye — into my soul, take it all in, and tell me what you see.
If you can, take this page out of your notes.
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
Understand that no one feels the way you do...
Selfish liar, how dare you make me into who I am,
If I knew who I was...
Drag the heat with you, spread your wings and fly.
Oh, I want to feel inside of you,
Touch your heart when I hold it so tight.
And kill me with each...
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
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...
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...
Slowly trickling by..
My mind drifts...
Above the clouds ...
Way beyond the sky...
Of dreams to come...
The sun will burn...
An etching in my mind...
The brief pic...
That will flick ...
In my left mind's eye ...
Of stories told...
Some rather bold...
But never ever shy...
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...
5 pill, 6 pill, 7 pill...more
Empty bottle and lifeless body lay on the floor.
No one finds her 'till a few days more.
She's overwhelmed and cannot take the pressure.
For she could not make the measure.
She died because her head was...
as I awake
to face another day.
The dreams of you I thought were real,
Have faded all away.
I could feel you there against my skin,
And even smell your scent.
I had all the other senses too,
And I don’t know where they went.
Life is not always fair it’s always said...
6am the moon is still awakened outside
Dark sky, foggy clouds and loud buses arrive
Teenagers walking to find their crowd
Some look sad and others are proud
ring ring the sound of the bell
its the first part of visiting hell
the commander shout, the commander scream
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?
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...
So many scars,
more than I ever thought.
Closed lips scream for help that no one wants to give.
Scarred wrists tell the story of a mess of existence.
A poor kid who didn't want to live.
(Once again, about my brother. He would have been 15 today...)
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...
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...
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...
with stars that never falter
a mirror in calm water
Her smile is the dawn
parting the moon and the sun
her lips of rose
blushes its crimson pose
Her skin is the moonbeam
glowing over a stream
as soft as silk
made from a river of milk
Her chest is a deep well
