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.

Poetry for Time, the Soul, and Love


Time for the Soul
by Talin Mari

Time calms the tumultuous soul,
Creating echoes of distant waves.
Time heals the hurtful exchanges,
Creating memories with its words.

Despite feeling the calming tides,
The new time is no longer the same.
Despite hearing the healing words,
The new time is only a fake reality.

With time, change is only desired,
With time, living means to be alive,
With time, freedom is yearned for,
With time, love is the only solution.

Life changes the events set in time,
Life moves the soul unexpectedly,
Life finds the hidden puzzled love,
Life evolves our bewildered souls.

The End

Poetry to Break Free and Dream


Thickened Bars
By Talin Mari

These thickened bars enclose my dreams,
Haunting me as I stare at their enclosure.
What fear is it that I must try to overcome?
Why do I feel apprehensive to break free?

These thickened bars hide my true being,
Masking me of my desired future passion.
What transformation must I still undergo?
Why do I want to hide and stay concealed?

These thickened bars are my true enemies,
Restraining me from believing in my abilities.
What have I done to create these rigid bars?
Why do I not choose to simply shatter them?

Stress is Best- What?



When I was in high school, one of my teachers asked me what my favorite thing was in life.  With my Type A personality at my side, I truthfully answered, “I love stress!”  Looking back at those days, I have to say: “really?”  What was I thinking?  Stress does not need to be overwhelming in order to achieve what one wants in life if that goal is truly something that one loves to do.

Exploration is an essential part of discovering the different opportunities that exist.  Some students may not enjoy going to school, but school helps show students the different fields of study that are available to many.  Without an education, how would someone become a doctor if that person does not even understand the human anatomy?  An education provides the tool that we can use to achieve our personal best.   It is a time of learning, whether it is learning to play an instrument or the rules of a football game.   It is a time of exploration.

Creativity is also important.  There are structured ways of doing everything, such as writing an essay or a poem.  What would happen if you change those rules a little to express your individuality?  Do I have to have a thesis with three supporting paragraphs for this blog? Hmm…. Is writing “hmm…” even allowed?  There are no two people alike.  Thinking outside of the narrow walls of structure will help us contribute to society with our newly found innovative ways in science and the language arts, among other fields.

Back to my topic about stress, it’s important to do what you love to do.  If you are happy in the field that you have chosen to pursue, whether it is writing or accounting, the stress may exist, but it will not be overbearing.  The hours you spend achieving that goal will not feel like an eternity.  No one really loves stress.  What was I possibly thinking?
