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...
time we're apart feels longer
The clock ticks and the cold breeze flows
As for me,I know where my heart glows
Covering the smile you cause me to make
It's this nervousness that I must break
These hidden feelings that I can't hide anymore
As I walk up the path that lead to...
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...
Times He Made You Cry
Forget The Way He Said Your Name
Remember How He Is Not The Same
Forget You Saw Him Yesterday
Forget His Loving And Teasing Ways
Forget The Things You Planned To Do
Remember Now He Is Not With You
Forget The Times That Went So Fast
Forget It All, Its In...
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...
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 want you to see,
that you have no right.
fall between these cracks,
take your time,
dont get back up,
and try to pull me down,
I'm out of words,
I'm out of tears,
I want to throw a fit,
I want to drown in my fears,
you just don't see,
and I don't think you ever will,
(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
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...
amount of makeup on your face?
Or the number of your waist line?
Beauty should be from the inside out
Everything has beauty
Everyone should embrace it
But its all in how you take to it
If you dont think your beautiful than fine
That problem is yours, not mine
Im just here to say...
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...
you were poison. Your eyes carried a strong venom that pierced into mine, you were the soldier in the darkest of wars. A secret whisper in my ear, I was engulfed in your mystery. Our bodies tense, our lips locked, our souls entwined. But our demons at battle. Battling each other...
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...
do it well
And you love me well
Until the morning sun
Your sweet kiss
Your body on mine
It doesn't get better than this
I'm on cloud nine
But with time
You age like fine wine
Every day with you
And it grows
Won't you put a...
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...
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...
trying to see if they can tell me why.
I no longer feel like I'm alive.
like tonight I know I'm going to die.
so I lay on this couch and I cry.
is this life I'm living all a lie?
there's this fear in my heart that won't go.
and as much as I try,it says no.
I guess it don't...
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...
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...
Meant To Me
I Tried Not To Let You In
But Somehow You Always Win
Now Im Trying Not To Fall Apart
Not So Easy With A Broken Heart
I Tried Not To Care
But That Was Impossible With You Always There
I Tried Not To Care
I Tried Not To Fall In Love With You
BUt How,I Had No Clue
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
I will never mind being first,
over the fence, and blindly climbing
or fronting our line of two,
through holes of clouds,
but , the only, I will not be,
for they still endure in me,
fights of ago slow in passing
I dont mind missed you...
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...
was day, and the day was dark. I felt like everything was only just an imaginary dream. I saw you smiling, but only when I was happy. When I became trapped in my endless maze, you remain nothing but a stray.
I woke up shaking, crying, missing, please come back to 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...
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...
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...
You said you cared.
But when I turned around,
you were never there.
I waited for you long enough.
You put me through hell but I never gave up.
You pushed and pulled and played with my heart.
The moment you said, we will never be apart.
Now I'm looking at you dead in the eyes...
But Im Starting To Forget
But Remembering How You Lied
I Have Someone Now
Someone To Treat Me Right
To Talk To Proudly
And To Hold On To All Night
He's There For Me When I Need Him
To Give Me Love And Support
To Hold Me Close
And Wipe Away All The Signs Of Hurt
To Tell Me...
feeling at first glance
As you moved forward and asked for a dance
Saying yes you took my hand
That is where the sin began
Our bodies moved in unison
Enticing a dangerous flame
And we entered sin's treacherous game
The beat grew stronger and our hearts caught on
As we kept...
Bring hearts broken
Unwilling to give
Not sure how to live
Turn fast away
And your heart you’ll betray
Such bountiful treasure
Once yours lost forever
But try just to view
What’s inside of you
And never you mind
Imperfections you find
Then let it all go
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...
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’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,
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...
unaffected by time. In this room exists one perfect moment before everything turned to dust before my eyes. In this room I never allowed my insecurities to destroy us. In this room you haven't yet stopped listening to what I have to say through my words but also through my...
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
And give comfort for those in pain.
You can soothe those in despair,
And make them whole again.
You can guide a child to do what’s right,
And teach them right from wrong.
You can cheer them up when they are sad,
With just a funny song.
But trying to soften up a hardened...
I don't know the way you smile,
the echoes of your laughter, at the corner of my ears -
reasoning like old vanishing memories.
I don't know the way your touch feels, the way the tip of your fingers looses themselves on my body - looking for somewhere to hide,
the way they...
sail across the sky
no promises that hold you down
no magic to change your mind
can't tell the difference
truth or fiction
rumor or fact
day or night
drowning in the injustice of inequality
on the outskirts of reality...
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...
With All You Put Me Through
I Have So Many Regrets
To Lose You Was Worth It
Although I Wasnt Sure
It Seemed To Make Me Happy
But Still So Insecure
We Always Said Forever
We Would Take It To The End
Never Give It Up
But This Time My Heart Couldnt Mend
It Cut So Deep Into Me
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...
past successful ways
interfere with what must be grasped
to deal with the present
dominant ideas and solutions falter
trying to defend
battling to hold on
to what is no longer there
space and time warp
at the edge of a hole...
