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
Slander be more than lies
Could statues be more than stone
A king be worth more than his throne
They think when it doesn't hurt
We mean that it's much worse
Shoot us in the chest again
One more day if we pretend
You'll be seeing headlines
It's all we ever dreamed
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?
That I may experience their deaths
Over, and over, until mine eyes awaken
For though i may sleep,
I shall know no rest
For ever, and ever...
Let your vengeance course through me
Thy rage inflict weeping sores upon the soul
That i may live once more,
And in light of day, devour...
was not fair and could not be so that I was suffering and he was not. Woe was me. Self pity was me. But I realise that all the incessant suffering was worth it. It was worth it, for now I know that I am not a flower free to be plucked and discarded, nor will I wither away at 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...
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
but knows only your name !
never a day without arousing you, but we lack earnestness!!
we pretend in such a way as if you are our impute !!!
but still you are great,never left us unaccompanied !!!
as the enemy and shut me down
Your words are bombs
Insults exploding inside my heart
I hear the crash over and over again
Ages after the devastation
You close the door in my face
You see me as an invader and the enemy
You see me as the root of all evil
You seek to destroy me...
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...
mind when you
Go on your tirades
You yell and scream
You accuse me of breaking
Promises to change.
You act as if I'm a monster.
I never cheated on you.
I never turned my back on you
I always stood by you
And when I say I am here for you
You attack me and shut me out.
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...
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...
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...
Dressed in black
Our shirts tear stained
On looking a hurtful sight
Watching you go down
How is it so hard to believe
This is it, its the end of your round
As you get lower
The boys start to shout
Slapping their chests
Stamping their feet on the ground
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...
(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
hands I held today,Brought to my face a smile.And any troubles I may have had,Left me for a while.Even though you are short right now,In emotions you are tall.Possessing a great big growing heart,In a body that is small.I watched you try to make a choice,As your mind began to...
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 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...
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...
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...
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...
to me he speaks
The gentleness of his solitude
Grief and contentment
in his hands lie
Transparencies of love lost
barefaced in his eyes
Unyeilding strength he lends
in veiled moonlit glow
and ardent adjurations
melt slowly in his snow
In passing my...
through your fake facade?
You made us both like equals, we are both just as flawed.
Did you think I couldn't hear you right through your many lies?
I know what you are made of, I can see through your disguise.
You tried to be such a badass with a good guy side.
But I didn't...
Silent without a sound
But you see
Grim he wasn't found
Grim is a man
Made of skulls and bones
He does his work
On his own
Touching a person
Taking him with him
To that place
Where they make a decision
Heaven or hell
Go straight up
Never go down
Grim takes away...
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...
Her nails painted pink,
Eyes rusted shut.
They say the distance killed her.
The coroner had a hard time
Her heart had grown too swollen
then dried too quick.
I wish I had told her at
the time that
happiness doesn’t last.
But instead she went...
thought I was
Turns out I have a breaking point
I guess everyone does
Hers is the stress
Of pleasing everyone
His is the pain
Of loosing a loved one
Mine is different
It doesn't seem right
But mine is myself
It's pretty Black and white
I am broken down
The ice isn’t enough Frustration, anger, fear, Failure… Sitting alone in the cold Wanting a different pain I found it Below my fingertips But stop Lo and Behold Stop He loves you Stop. He. Loves. You. Stop! Shivering, crying, screaming...
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...
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 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...
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...
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
yearned for it's sweet fruit and open blossom...
watched you walk in beauty...
lay with you in naked passion
as the soft unfiltered light caressed,
and kissed the rising of your breasts,
and with every sigh my passion swelled
as I sought your comfort in a dream...
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...
So alive amid dying light,
Embraced by the night,
Illuminate with unseen bliss.
The earth is your canvas.
Scary, yet I’ve no fear.
From afar I see slow dancing:
On haunted soil, frolicking
In ragged dress with messy hair,
Awkward steps oh, so dear.
Remove your cozy boots...
to be me. Let me become everybody, so I will be able to feel good about my sanity. I feel I am blind, bound by shackles. “Let me go!” What has a hold of me? All I desire is love, something I can observe in others. This is why I hate to see my reflection; because it’s a...
Check out my strong verbs!
Dig my quotation marks, they're loaded with detailed jargon.
Say, you have some great exclamation points,
Can I be your indirect object?
You may accuse me of using crude superlatives, suffice it to say,
My language is unbiased and suitable for...
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
