A fairy tale that will decline and incline
A fairy tale is just an ugly creature behind a hideous face
A beautiful meaning
A beautiful story
The tale will only end when the mistress is safe
Safe in a strangers arms who she was destined to love
Why should the story stop...
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 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
and held my coffee cup,
The day had just begun.
The morning battled to take control,
As the clouds still blocked the sun.
Orange and crimson were everywhere,
As the yellow ray peeked through.
The day was almost finally here,
And I had lots to do.
This was the time I cherished...
alone with only my thoughts,
my past returns
I can barely keep the voices at bay,
they will not be silenced,
nor will they tolerate being ignored
A dozen voices whispering in the night,
in an unending unison of judgement,
"you cannot be love"
So many chances,
and an equal...
sun kissed ripples
of a late and hazy afternoon
spent idly wandering...
light feet, free and fancy,
skipping over Lily pads and swaying
to rhythm of the reeds,
their roots sunk deep
in the cool blue pools of devotion.
You are the scent of pine
in the dark forest, flirting with...
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 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...
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 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...
amidst the people the fool so vain.
he smiles at all to dance and sing,
this to celebrate his rise to king.
a crown of lead with robes of dust,
scepter bent and sword of rust.
this motley fool, the knave of hearts,
has lost his sould to loves sweet arts.
but love alone is...
Something oh so bright,
But please, let me be truthful.
Beauty reminds me of the pain,
It drives me insane!
Who could stand breaking down
When there's nothing to cause a frown?
It makes me want to suffocate
Trust me, I don't exaggerate.
Please, someone tell me...
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 know this to be true.
Because I saw heaven there
when I looked at you.
A smile so pure and simple
Your inner light was flowing free
I truly saw my heaven there
When you smiled at me
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
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...
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...
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
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...
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 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...
Your beauty; Like the dawn
A timeless clock
An eternal sunrise
Your visage drives me on
Elegance of tone
Symmetry in motion
Your grace so undefined
Upon a throne
In my heart's devotion
My feelings are now enshrined
Within my silence
And my averted glance
feel the beginning of the beginning
Soft, sultry, summer sun
Warm, full and free
Peeking through the trees
All the love (world) for you and me
Sweet child, sweet smile
Eyes green, full and free
Shine in the soft, sultry, summer sun
And in that moment we are one
We are won
memories never fail to flow,
Back to when you were small;
To toys scattered on the floor,
And crayon on the wall.
I remembered all the questions asked,
On trips with just us two,
Like why is the water wet,
And why the sky is blue.
Those times we had were simple times,
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...
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...
scratch from the bleeding quill
torn from the wings of flightless dreams
and dipped in fantasy's brimming well
where expression is the fresh carrion
in a dream's possession, gripped
by the talons of raven raged nights;
and the ink I spilt over these crumpled sheets
(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
Remember what they say
All i remember
Is that terrible day
It was june
And you slipped away
Missing you hurts deeply
Cant you see
Its tearing me to shreds
Inch by inch
Tearing me up
They watch me burn
Laughing at me
And making fun
Love is the thing that keeps it from falling apart,
The mind is an intelligent tool
Without it a man is no more then a ignorant fool,
I grow to strive and teach my brain,
Days get hard and it can be quite a pain,
However I never wish to be plain,
My soul is impure by...
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...
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?
from the past Become candles of remembrance,With wispy, heated waves of bygone yesterdays;Dancing flame in my iris reflection.The warm wax of echoes pastGlides slowly down to a cradled hold.Gathering all that was and will be,Until next time needed, when the world is cold...
while we all lose our mind
eyes shadowed over, temporarily blind.
The world looking confusing, people unkind
but you'll always have those who wont leave you behind.
They are by your side and have your hand
as you're confused and unbalanced, they help you stand
having them near...
tender heart of mine and throw it far away
Replace it with a stone and make it cold as ice
Take this tender heart of mine and lock it in a box
Then throw away the key and never search it out again
There is no reward for being kind
There are only those who take and those who...
write down words,
Just to make you think.
I create a feast meant for your mind,
And invite you for a drink.
The words I write aren’t always deep,
And neither are they always right.
Sometimes they are just written down,
To bring obscure things to light.
It is easy to become...
to wake up and spread your bright and colourful wings,The time has come to explore this vast amazing world and and see what the new dawn brings.Please fly free lil one, no longer do you have to keep your feet firmly to this tree,The sky is now your branches and they are as high...
depression is not an easy thing
going thru each day not knowing what it may bring.
It's not as easy as you may think
to wash it all straight down the sink.
I have ups and downs, but I still do try
but when I mess up, you scold and I cry.
With depression you can be happy or sad...
much to my dismay,
still talking and taking things,
farther and farther away
losing focus again,
like times from the past, they never end
I can't imagine what I'm doing
so far my attention, that which I am losing
still struggling to believe
sure enough to breathe
desperate scratching behind cold walls.
midst tear stained passages and memories doors locked tight,
spectral dreams swirl with fright.
dark is the mind of broken hearts realm,
grey ships of fear, with death at the helm.
lifes blood pools in lakes black as night,
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...
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...
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...
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...
