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
as you know who you are
You are the person that talks with me, and hails from very far
You were one of the very first people, that I met here when I was new
Several accounts later, I'm thankful to still be talking with you
At first I was quite stubborn, and sometimes even rude...
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
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...
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
.. by moiYou sent me a postcard from Italy,Of your travels that summer,One after another, a trail leading everywhere.Low sun and orange skies,Heat and terracotta coloursOld Coca-cola signs, faded in the Tuscan light,Fountains, bathing your un-sandaled feetAnd brown tanned skin...
Within his firm grip and masterstrokeSwept by that familiar surgeSwollen by the puping blood of lustIn passion's firm relentless gripEngorged and lost...Lost within the wild enchantment of her eyes,The undulating contours ofHer wetland silken thighs;The marsh moist valley of her...
And I fear you'll go again,
Where did you go?
Why am I not happy?
I thought I would be,
But all I want to do is cry,
Why am I not happy?
If all is lost,
And all is gone,
If all is pain,
Why do you cause me to smile?
Where have you gone?
Didn't you realize,
heavy breeze freighted with salt bows each blade
before recoiling back into the foam of a breathing ocean.
Words pass between walking figures,
their leisurely strides spied from a sunken hideaway
by the furtive and humorless black orbs of a ghost crab.
but proud of it
She has her flaws but she wears them proudly
She's made mistakes and she knows she is not a saint
A tainted past that has braced her for her future
But she still has her smile and oh how it's so beautiful
If all I can do is make her smile it's all worth it
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...
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...
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...
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’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
weeping as I watch us fall like raindrops
whilst holding the knowledge of those before
that fell through misty eyes. It never stops.
There will come a time when the last drop falls,
And I will realise my greatest fear.
With arms wide open I'll join this ocean,
hoping that you're...
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...
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...
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
(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
who they are!
Sometimes I don't think before I speak,
Or I speak when I should just walk.
But I guarantee that my words are genuine,
I don't really enjoy small talk.
Sometimes it's not what you say, but nothing at all,
You can argue with the ignorant,
Useless as conversing...
Ovals of amber smiling back
And your soft flowing colour
I wish to grab you up
Bury myself in your richness
Roll in your existence shouting
But I am an adult now
And the thrall of mediocrity
Has imprisoned me
In my bland partitioned office
The rustle of bills in my...
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...
and it's cold
I'm full of lies and spitting gold.
Hearts are sinking like a stone
words are cutting to the bone.
Drink it down
It's over now.
Blood is tainted but sublime
half awake but floating high.
All their faces disappear
all intentions turn to...
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...
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush

and of happiness and of anger and of malice and of everything else that the stars could have possibly made up of
You let them scatter all over my body
Some settle in my veins, blooming into lillies
My brain became a field of forget me nots
But by far the largest amont decided to...
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...
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...
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...
pictures were on the wall
Two in the bedroom
From the night that i lost you
Theres one in my heart
Man i fell apart
One deep inside me
That is determined to stay
They don't get any bigger
And they don't go away
In and around me
Beginning to surround me
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 spine, and my body curls. With deliberate strokes, your adoration for me unfurls. In the dimness, the beads of sweat lay like melted pearls. When goodbyes are said at twilight, reality itself, at our consciousness, hurls.
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...

- wanting waits
Try again, caress - gentle - nothing
Slow circles - soft urging invite
A slight move away - a clamped hand
Whispered - "irritating".. Hangs in the dark
I lie back - mind turning - body still
Hoping - wishing - wondering - nothing
Breathing settles into even sleep...
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...
