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...
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...
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...
Gripping, gliding, exploding
milky magma screaming, begging to blame
pushing its way
into the summoning darkness
seeking the source of the impoverishment
collapsed flesh entombing
the inexorable melting result of collision
cracking into the vulnerable trust of want
and I was captivated by the very mirage of you.
I once was told that something
too good to be true
Yet, I was captivated by
the very mirage
The very light of you;
a double rainbow;
a flashy array of deception
to the silver dollar eyes
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
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...
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...
that I could be anything
The "anything" I chose was nothing
I am wasted life and wasted intelligence
To all around me, I am a hindrance.
I take, never give; I hurt, never heal.
My toxic behavior reflects how I feel.
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...
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...
than the trails they use to leave for us as boy scouts
as the eyes of life
watch our stories unfold
how often do they see us play the fool
yet possess the king
how often do they feel our sorrow
and envy our ecstasy
do they smile at our happiness
. I gotta warm up again..
Streaming across the sky—
That define curvatures beyond space.
Bring me to the light—
For I crave the knowledge
Tell me what it means,
Tell me what lies beyond the lights—
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
As newly fallen blood
That falls from a slice
Of skin cut wide open
As scales and stretched skin
Soar over the plains
Plains of cold ice
Millions of pieces
Of freezing white cold
Below is the snow,
Bleak and ice cold
Dead and starkly
Barren and ice smooth
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
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...
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,
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...
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 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...
my eyes just above the fence stealing a peak at happiness
I see enough to quell my hunger
Enough to stop the grumbling of my stomach and fuel my imagination as I paint a picture of my own,one with me in it.
I see myself,over the fence laying on the ground
If I shut my eyes tight...
Slice thru clouds,
Clouds of soft flesh
Clouds of rich blood,
Scarlet and warm.
Cutting like glass
Like pointed fangs
They break the skin
The layer of skin
Slashing the thin wall
Releasing the red juice
Like scarlet rain
To fall to the ground,
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...
everyone has their own limit
Away from the negativity,
when love turns to insanity
But there's no one talking,
when I find myself listening
Not even a little brevity,
or a chance at some clarity
Alone with a worn spirit,
now, it's too damned quiet
that caused me to relapse.
I fell into the rabbit hole
Digging myself deeper and deeper
To be treacherous was your only goal.
You seduced me with your lies of hope
Dangling the noose,
you tempted me with the rope.
The sweet nothings you whispered, in my ear
Shining and sparkling
Glow with brilliant light
Like crystal shards
Picking up the morning sun
Or glass fragments,
Pointed and edged
With various needles
Smooth and yet sharp
As steel sword blades
Polished and buffed
And yet with thin honed edged...
tangled roots of an old mountain pine….its trunk serves me well as a backrest as i look out over the cliff watching a mountain stream become a waterfall. To my right and coming from behind me, dropping some 70 feet below, the water twists and turns between time smoothed...
lights all aglow.
I can still hear the laughter from long ago.
I remember the question, "What is love"?
And being told a completion of two people that comes from above.
Then came a marriage way to soon,
a pregnant bride and a jealous groom.
A marriage of lies, guilt and no...
(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 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...
but inside, the same always remaining.
Days pass by, weeks and months,
Nothing straightens my mind's labyrinth
I think, I read, and I concede,
I have no answer; I haven't what I need.
The minds of doctors, psychologists and others,
Cannot understand the child birthed from my...
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...
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?
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...
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...
playing in the leaves
that fall in Fall
from tress who don't care
to be ressurected
this time around :
hide your essence
between branches fallen
to land in the form of crosses;
under rocks, hiding
their drowning faces
in the puddles
of heaven's tears;
its been just over
two years, I remember this fear
polluting my eyes, I'm starting over.
Demon, you are gone from me,
I've outgrown you, lovely dead.
I need something new, for my
system has reached its end.
this world again trembles,
fire spits through this earth.
again I make...
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...
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...
It wasn't my fault.
I am your loss
I'll have greater gain.
Don't think you left me broken
For weeks and months and years
I'm going to bounce back
I'm going to prove you wrong.
You weren't ready
For a commitment like me
I was ready
You pretended like you were...
though I sometimes write poetry, albeit poorly. I write what happens to be in, or pouring from, my heart and soul. This is for, to, and about, my best friend.
For you, Beanie Baby...I loved you then, I love you now, and I will love you with every breath I breathe, until my last...
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
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...
