Poetry – The Phone Call


Phone Call

by Talin Mari


Waiting impatiently for the call,

Nothing delays it from arriving.


The phone rings,

The heart beats,

The soul softens,

The voice echoes,

The eyes imagine,

The phone clicks.


Sliding softly in the silky chair,

Imagination is only left stirring.

Imaginary Love – Poem


Imaginary Love

by Talin Mari


Your eyes show me the depths of your soul,

Your laughter hints at the silliness within,

Your lips reveal words that are concealed,

Your heart beats infinitely with compassion.


You are my imaginary creative love,

You are the one who haunts my heart,

You are my hidden treasure revealed,

You are the one who flows in my veins.


I am faced to fight my battles without anyone,

I am imprisoned with fear of doing anything,

I am living a life that no one would ever seek,

I am a prisoner in a world that I do not want.


My imaginary creative love keeps me alive,

My imaginary compassionate love is inside,

My imaginary playful love helps me smile,

My imaginary soulful love lets me stay true.

A Tearful Traveller – A Tearful Poem


A Tearful Traveller

by Talin Mari


Today, I travel to places unknown,

Today, I travel without leaving home.


Minutes pass and all I do is wonder,

Am I the reason for my destruction?

Minutes pass and the tears continue,

How can I stop my world from me?


When I was blinded by simplicity,

Life continued to pass without hurt,

When I was blinded by not leaving,

Life continued to pass for all but me.


Now, I am left alone in my own world,

Now, I am left without friends and torn.


No friends,

No love,

No direction.


Where do I go?

Why am I left abandoned?


I wish I could stop my unexpected trip,

I wish I could stop my imprisoned self.


Do I really want to be my artificial self?


It’s time to travel alone on this journey,

No one can read my mind on this trip,

It’s time to mute the noises from outside,

No one can really bear my true feelings.

Poetic Blog – Essence of Love


Essence of Love
by Talin Mari

The essence of love is indescribable,
There are no mixtures ever planned.
The harmony in the heart is inevitable,
There is only fate that mixes its parts.

Love produces rays of colors unseen.
Love provides boundless inspiration.
Love pairs couples that never existed.
Love paves the path to our existence.

Butterflies in the Heart – A Poem


Butterflies in the Heart
by Talin Mari

Butterflies multiplying in my heart,
Trapped by its enclosed chambers.
Fluttering their wings to stay apart,
Gravitating towards being in pairs.


Butterflies wanting to escape feeling,
But the thick walls are too confining.
Trying to destroy the wall’s restraint,
Slowly the butterflies find an escape.


Butterflies multiplying in my heart,
Released from its detained prison.
Consuming all of my inner organs,
Withdrawing to let it embrace me.


Choices to Success



We all make choices. Whether these choices are logical or illogical, they make us the product of who we have become. I can sit here and write about a really good book I read or a great movie that I saw; instead, I sit here writing about the all elusive world of choices that we live, breathe, and devour every day of our lives.


We are taught that there are the good or bad choices. What happened to the choices that are in the grey area? The choices that are questionable, but not rejectable. Regardless of what the decisions to those choices were, they still created who we are today.


This article is not about trying to figure out what choice to make, but rather to accept the fact that it is made. With acceptance, we can evaluate whether we want to continue on the same path or try something different.


No one in this world is perfect. Perfection is unattainable and to try and achieve perfection would only create misery in the end. The best thing to do is to accept our mistakes and improve upon those decisions in the future. A slight shift in perspective can change our guided path to success or what we deem to be success.


If we want to become great executives, artists, writers, or star employees, then we need try to become the greatness that we desire; however, we will make several mistakes along our path. We will improve on those mistakes as long as we recognize them, embrace them, and analyze how to shift them into a more positive direction. It is with recognition of our weaknesses that we can change them to our strengths. Perhaps, it is as easy as taking a class in a local community college.


Sitting at home as a dreamer will never amount to anything other than empty dreams. We all have a bit of us that craves becoming a dreamer. I have it just as much as the person next to me. It is the choices that we make that takes us out of the dreaming state and makes us move it to the state of reality. The more we know about who we are and our direction in life, the clearer that reality becomes and the dreams begin to actualize.


The next time a choice is made, think about it as being a choice that will lead you one step closer to your dream or your goal. Anything is attainable. Patience and perseverance are guides in that path towards your own excellence.
