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 dream of boats floating by, unable to make it back up.
I can see you from here, watching deep currents pulling you under, unable to make it back up.
I can't hear your apologies from here, but I have heard them before.
I sit on my bridge, watching waters of who I thought you...
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
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...
before the sun
Another sleepless night
Another day begun
Another chance to get it right
Another day of living
Another thing that could go wrong
Another sin to be forgiven
Another place I don't belong
And as the sun shall slowly travel
Across my clearest skies
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
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...
depict dreams lost forever.No matter how often I reach for you, the river of eternity carries me farther away from your touch.Even though time is supposed to heal all wounds, it intensifies the pain.Separated in our own universes, I still feel your touch, which thrills my soul...
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...
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...
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...
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,
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
Screaming like a Banshee
Crying like there's no end.
I stop talking to friends
Friends stop talking to me.
Days turn into weeks,
Weeks turn into months...
Will months turn into years?
I spew hatred past people I don't like,
Hatred sucker punches me from people I love...
A shining product of a fallen star.
Not to be mistaken as the one we seek,
A reflection of him, that tends the weak.
Brought to see with Omniscient power.
Activation within, the lotus flower.
Peace of mind, and piece of it all.
Piece of Universe, Never to fall.
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...
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush

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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
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
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
Pulled my sad strings
And played me like a harp
Showed me his bad side
Let the demon come
He showed me his pet
They played all night long
Its a time i wont forget
Strummed my tears
Made them run wild
All night he danced
Just like a child
The soul surfing free loader
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...

(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 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...
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...
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
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...
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,
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...
Swiftly moving your way
Away from a bright and stormy past
Where Only the mystery of future lies ahead
Beside the quiet stream I sit near
Small birds sing soothing melodies
Daylight has long gone
The moon's shining gaze hopefully and anxiously finds me
As if I...
