And thought we were alone.
But we were joined by several more,
Connected on their phone.
Before the words could be expressed,
They had to answer text.
I could only sit and wait,
In hopes that I’d be next.
So the future lies before us,
And cell phones catch the blame.
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'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...
so here goes nothing.
My heart sinks where it can not float
I am being held by the throat
I'll leave something less meaningful like a note
I don't usually use pepper and salt
People are just people but I seem to care
What it seems to be, what it seems to be not...
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
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
Pour me a glass,
my dear, pour me a glass.
This plan I undertake,
just to see you when I wake.
You pour a glass,
Oh dear, you pour a glass.
With one gulp, your demise,
I awake as a corpse's bride.
a pain i wished not to endure,
a simple smile flashing bright,
your dark eyes finally seeing me.
One more I love you,
before the story is over,
and as I have told you before,
this is not our end.
Baby please dont cry,
the pain of you cutting through me,
a simple need,
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
April showers in the window,
there's flooding in my head.
May flowers on the sunrise,
September's on my bed.
Birthday cards from strangers.
Books of science on the floor.
Friends of friends are knocking,
I'm still at September's door.
Sweet iced tea by the pool
but my mind...
and I are now facing calamity
Late night laughter
That was then....what will come after?
Road trips and mischief
Memories are clear, but will soon drift
Where did the time go?
I think we both know
I can't extend my hand any longer
You resist reaching farther to grow...
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...
Never letting them fall
There were times our laughter shook them
But they held too much
Too much fear and insecurity
Lack of faith and only worry
Fear of the world's perception
Wanting to attain their ideal perfection
The reality of pain
Seething pasts that...
for strolling madly.
Fall into the void...
Total, utter, surrender.
Contemplation, rumination is my ruination.
My ruined nation.
Take me back to the start, back to the start...
Write from the heart.
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,
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...
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 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...
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...
Skin to skin,
Back to abdomen,
And knees to knees,
The smell of your hair,
Head half turned,
Stubble, lips whisper soft words
In a listening ear.
And in the equatorial zone
The rising of the sun,
The purpose, energy...
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...
Drive. Came across this one. I never showed it to the person I wrote it for, I didn't think she wanted it at the time. I doubt it would've changed anything. But if I had showed her, I wouldn't be questioning why I chose not to. If you have something to tell someone, tell them...
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...
the feelings of pleasure as my blood runs free
the beliefs of my own mortality
free of depression and anxiety
no one understands the way that i feel when i cut real deep
the coppery smells and the crimson red
the way that i feel when I'm still not dead
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
slamming across the street
chocolate brown and the number nine
a casual check of the wrist for the time
rice and wings and beer -- but not soup,
you hated that -- so I guess that too...
cashmere blankets and clap-off lights
times when i can't fall asleep some nights
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...
it's my second most recent:
The Serpent's Curse
The serpent flits its tongue in thirst cursed to only collect dust from the dry earth. In a sense I'm damned to the same fate, ******** of my innocence, hurt inexpressible. For this state I lack words.
The inexorable pain 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
the way he licks his perfect lips
the way he laughs
the way he smells
the way he flirts
the way he just stands there
the way he eats
the way he scooters
the way he stares
the way he back-talks authority
the way he drums
the way he slouches
the way he participates
An hour would last a day.
And every next one,
would be another one to play.
I dream of childhood.
To fight my demise.
Destroy it with a stick
that is a sword in disguise.
I dream of childhood.
Climbing trees to the top.
The branches ate my future,
the ground is still a long...
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...
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...

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...
