Poetry by Liana Margiva


The merciless Dawn advanced
Sending stars in panicky retreat,
But one stubborn star kept shining
She was not in a hurry to flee.

She had no one to embrace her
Perhaps, dismayed by the treason,
The deceit of another star
She thought was her chosen one,
The one who was the light of her life.

She was waiting for the Sun to rise,
Longing to burn in its scorching inferno,
Disappear without a trace,
Mourning the loss of another
Who failed to live up to her dream.

But the sky was merciful that night,
Envisaging the senseless doom,
It cried out to Nature’s forces
To intervene on its behalf.

Behold, the dark clouds moved in from afar,
Hiding the silly star in their shade
As they shed bitter tears and pleaded
With the Sun to postpone its ascent
Until the love blaze of the martur
Reached the chosen one.

And the majestic Sun acceded
To their desperate plea,
Retreating in seclusion
Until the first blossom of Spring.

Oh, dear faraway star!
Could you also be in love?
Have you known the bitterness of treason?
Your wounded soul will take ages to heal.

Ask the Almighty for me, my distant friend
Why He fills our hearts with worthless people,
Sends us the pain that wouldn’t abate,
Sends us the love which tortures our souls
For many years to come?

By Liana Margiva

Translated from Russian by Anatol Kardiukov

WELL DONE...A MOST APPROPRIATE QUESTION...WE HAVE ALL HAD SUCH AN INQUIRY AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER IN OUR LIVES AND THE ANSWER FOR ME ALWAYS IS...'ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD, FOR THEM THAT LOVE GOD'... A VERY GOOD WORK, INDEED, LIANA...A HONEST AND REALISTIC LOOK AT 'HEARTBREAK'. THANKS FOR SHARING AND LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Heartfelt and powerfully written Liana!




Much Love,
Always!!

Whoa! My dearest Liana, I know much of the heartache and disappointment you share so eloquently in "Star in Love." It is impossible to read and understand these lyrics and to not share your pain. Your sharing is brilliant!

But I have learned to experience and move on. And it is with that boldness of nature that I suggest it's time for the two of us to have a "Night out on the town," perhaps a few laps around the dance floor to an upbeat modern rhythm followed by a quiet candle-lit dinner complete with fragrant rose and a nice glass of wine.

Perhaps we can later give thanks for at least the temporary abatement of pain.

It's time, dear Liana. May I pick you up about nine o'clock?

Love,
Richard

Perhaps so we finally learn the lessons of life and love..by which time it is often too late...but if we are luck, sometimes not....

Perhaps it is so that we recognize the real thing when it enters our life (if we're lucky). Touching verse and I like the personification of the star and the conversational tone this piece takes. Most enjoyable! Warmly, Elizabeth

Maybe it is not clear to us now...but one day,I believe, we will know all answers.
Reviewed by Lois Christensen 6/3/2008
Dreams of loving don't often come true. But we can dream of love always. Spring is for falling in love too and is called Young love or something like that. It doesn't always last either. The answer to the question may be to test you to see if you would be true to that person and to God also and put God first instead of love for another. We always need to put God first and I do.

They say we will only carry what our shoulders can carry, I believe we all have to go the distance to get to what we are truely worthy of. Thank you for sharing Liana.

He never fills your heart with
More than it can handle!
I think is because He
wants us to be strong and learn the
Mining of true love!
Excellent question withing!
Peace Love and hugsss....morning Star

Longing for love and acceptance - what each of us desires. This star knows our pain and suffering. Someday we will know the "whys" that plagued us during our life, but until then ...

God bless you. Kathy

Reading this poem I had a sense of déjà vu, like you had said it before, with others words but with the same old painful feelings.
People that carelessly tread on love, are the same that pull flies wings.
Reading this poems make one to wish one could reach and wrap the trembling one with one warmth embrace of tenderness.
