A kiss was never stolen
Which turned my burned heart blue
But in the midnight hour
When it's all said and done
Better we had each other
And created so much fun
You were part of my universe
But now you're just dust
The pieces of the alleyway
The old forgotten lust
(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 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...
You are the Sun that shines and burns bright
You are like fire and water
Time and Space is infinitely You
You are both energy and matter
Action and leisure
You are the paintbrush against the blank canvas, create your life beautifully
You design your own spiritual growth...
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...
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...
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
telling yourself its for the best,
and that to speak to me,
could end so much.
I wonder if you think of me,
and ask what happened,
if I am still the one you love,
or if I am just someone in the background
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...
would you hold me tight?
would you kiss me softly?
and tell me you love me?
if we only have right now,
will you slowly take away my pain?
would you show me all I needed to see?
would you make me happy?
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...
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
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...
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...
Music: The Greatest... Cat Power
Feel, breathe, live,
Heart beat faster,
Pulse, heat, softness and hardness,
Minds and thoughts and desire.
Leave the rest at the door,
Tonight we are going to be on the floor,
Feet first then torsos,
Entwined in meaningful...
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
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...
trapping her tiny body.
a caricature of
the woman she'd like to be
Exaggerated movements, laughing, smiling
kindness, kindness, oh-so-sweet,
Garish masks, gowns, Kabuki--
so much bitterness
so much hate
so much grief.
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...
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...
but you don't know that I'm wise. If you ever listened to me, you'd see through my eyes. If you didn't judge my history, I wouldn't have to be in disguise. If you let me finish my sentence, you would see that this monster has a beautiful heart inside." -Beautiful Monster...
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...
Knowing that no one understands him. All they see is the guardian of. the world. Only calling him or even looking his way when they're in distress and needing something. When they don't know don't even think twice to as to ask him how he feels or what he needs. Little do they...
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...
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...
Those peeps don't get my empathy.
Is it so hard to get yourself some education? Learn how to respect those without relation.
I call it laziness, the craziness you spew, such ignorance.
One can't be so arrogant to think they know everything.
Someone once said a wise man knows...
A poem by Yolo.
Now I lay myself to sleep,
And everything my soul does seek.
Gods and Devils, beasts and Saints
All wish to be the next to paint.
Within blurred lines they fill the page,
Colors…no shadows all the rage.
Just to make for me a dream,
That wakes me with a...
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 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 thought it was me
I was only five
Go to sleep to gunfire
Police never come
Crack ho's never tire
And I know I'm done
My uncle runs guns
My momma's doin time
I have to mule drugs
And I am only nine
They say I can choose
The future is mine
What do I have to do
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...
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...
knows that you are so beautiful
I held you too close to me, close enough to make me want to leave I still feel scars from me that you may not see
I wish we could fix what was broke
So instead of sending broken flowers I'll send you roses
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...
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
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
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...
