Show VM descriptions on VirtualBox from terminal?

Please help,
I've server for development on debian 8 host using Virtualbox. I try to use and learn terminal for work with all activity, I think it more efficient.
I know to list and run vm on terminal.

$ VBoxManage list vms
$ VBoxManage startvm <vm name> --type headless


But, I can't show the desctriptions from terminal. because I store all information on descriptions.
I've try to read man page VBoxMAnage, and search on google.
