Genocide Survivors – Poetry of Hope and Peace

Standard

Genocide Survivors

By Talin Mari

 

On this day of sorrow,

So many lost their lives,

With nothing left for tomorrow,

They unwillingly said their goodbyes.

 

In the light of hope they existed,

One step brightening another,

Hope brought by the unanticipated,

Since a life of racist hate brings sorrow.

 

Waking now to a blank slate,

They walked effortlessly forward,

With love in their hearts and their fate,

They moved to the sunrise and onward.

 

Feeling lights of love in the soul,

Shunning hate to those that are ignorant,

Preaching kindness to heal the heart’s hole,

They embraced each other’s scarred dents.

Blazing Sun – Lyrical Poem

Blazing Sun, Lyrical

By Talin Mari

 

I found you in the middle,

Of a bridge down South Street.

Your eyes full of life,

And your loving words so sweet.

 

I grabbed your hand,

You pulled away,

Turned and looked,

The other way,

 

You left me in a daze,

Making me feel

Like I’m in a haze,

On this foggy bridge.

 

Baby,

The day is young,

Let’s run around

The blazing sun.

 

Hold me till

The night comes round

And we can blaze

The night away.

 

I’ll hold your hand,

Never letting you go.

The days may pass,

But my heart still flows.

 

With your love,

I know your hurt

Will flow down

The river with dirt.

 

Let me show you love,

The love that grows.

Let me show you me,

Beyond these woes.

 

Baby,

The day is young,

Let’s run around

The blazing sun.

 

Hold me till

The night comes round

And we can blaze

The night away.

 

The day is young,

Let’s run around

The blazing sun.

 

Hold me till

The night comes round

And we can blaze

The night away.

 

 

Love Beyond War’s Destiny Poem

Standard

Love Beyond War’s Destiny

by Talin Mari

 

There are love stories that last a lifetime,

Our love story has stayed true to the heart’s chime.

When I met you, your eyes studied me,

The softness of your iris blended with the blue sea.

 

The moments we shared were timeless,

Walking among the evergreens with a soft caress.

The leaves embracing our every stride,

Fondly, we found our way to the park bench satisfied.

 

Your soft lips,

Your gentle touch,

Your endless embrace,

Infinite,

Incredible,

Immeasurable.

Love with infinite chimes.

 

Gently holding my hands masked with tears,

You told me you would depart for only a few years.

The love burning inside me feeling despair,

Knowing that you would never return from warfare.

 

The skies were covered with red smoke,

The evergreens that transformed into veins broke.

Blood dripped to the floor with reality,

Knowing that your doomed fate was a possibility.

 

Tragedy haunted me,

Tragedy destroyed my soul,

Tragedy created my warped destiny.

 

I held your hand as you kissed me goodbye,

My love story had become an incomplete lullaby.

Slowly you slid your hand away from mine,

Realizing that you had to leave for war this time.

 

I fell to the floor marked by my red tears,

The skies darkened as I became limp with fears.

My heart beat faster as I knew your destiny,

Becoming one with mine as we reunited eternally.

 

Love in the evergreens,

Love fallen, but found,

Love with its chime.

Love, only love…

Poetry – The Phone Call

Standard

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

Standard

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

Standard

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.
