Poetry by Liana Margiva

Don’t say: “ I missed you” to my heart

And of your misery don’t start:

My wounded heart can’t stand your pain.

Don’t say that suffered you in vain,

My image cherished in your brain,

Whilst wooing other day by day.


Don’t fret you failed to fall in love

I never stopped to love you,

When in the midst of night I hear

Birds’ songs of you in my keen ear,

When roaring thunder rumble start

Attempting to wake up your heart.


Don’t fuss you made a grave mistake

And our bond you chose to break.

I kept daydreaming of your love

Like of a star that shines above.

Don’t say you love me, empty words

Are flying high like  birds.

T’was I who loved you when in dream

In sea of bliss you took a swim

With other one, who’s lucky flesh

From dusk to dawn in bliss would splash.


I longed to touch your hand, your face

When you embraced your lover’s waist.

I was my eyes that blazed with love

When other one you called your love.

My heart was weeping at the part                                                                         

Where other one you held to heart.


But time has come: you understood

My part in your life now for good.

I have become forever part

Of your tranquil and happy heart,

The part you lost for many years,

The one that mixed the joy with tears,

The one that brought to your domain

The bitter aftertaste of pain.


Don’t look in vain in ocean’s deep:

The crests of waves’ my soul will sweep,

The same waves where once before

Love married Youth for evermore.


The ocean beach where you await

I never left to seal my fate.

My soul remained on sandy beach

Aspiring you one day to reach.


So don’t regret not searching for

That peace of heart lost long ago,

Don’t try in vain my soul to wake:

I have presided at its wake.

So let me fly to sky, unbound,

Don’t take away the peace I found.

My life is ending, bridges burn,

I passed the point of no return…


By  Liana Margiva

Don't know any Russian but the translation is marvelous. I love the mystique of rhyme in how you use the same word with different meanings exercised in the sentence. That is talent.

Love it.

Beautiful and meaningful; your verses express a universal and timeless theme of this life/world, Liana. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

Uniformly when love turns into pain
Its best part ways itís always hard to acknowledged
That itís over, they say love hurts and that is ďso true ď
This piece Lina was not written it pen it was written
With the quill of the heart
Brilliant piece
Wishing you Peace Love and Light

Liana this is a great poeem, especially the last part. Like Janna, I would love to be able to read it in Russian as much of the flow is lost in translation--yet in your case the talent and beauty remain.

All the best!!

In English it is simply beautiful Liana. It must be breath taking in your native tongue.

A noteable point at which one

need not return...moving forward

for love much like the sand and

the foam! ~Liana~

With an ocean full of waves to put

out the burning...bringing peace!!

An excellent message, dear Liana, with rhythm and rhyme flowing like an unrestrained stream. "point of no return" ... yes, the rubicon many go over that they can't turn back from. Sadly I've experienced this much in my life. Many failed friendships and relationships that, no matter what you do, remain only a wasteland of memories.
"When in the midst of night I hear
Birdsí songs of you in my keen ear," ... May I say that your poetry, to me, is like a beautiful bird's song. Excellent! Peace and continued inspiration to you ... richard

Excellent write on the sorrows of parting and lost love! Amazing how you can describe exactly what the heartaches one feels when goodbyes are said...and the title says it all: "Don't Say" (goodbye).

There's no way to put a good spin on a breakup. But you've got to write about it to keep the pain from driving you crazy.

Very tender and bitter sweet write influenced by heart and soul.
Reviewed by Richard King 9/30/2011
Liana, I don't know a thing about the Russian language, but I'm quite certain it's very difficult to translate a poem and not lose something in the rhythm, but it would seem to be especially so when it comes to the rhyming aspect. However, I just have to say that this one most certainly still has all the heart and soul.

Nicely done. By both you and Anatol. Thanks Dick

Reviewed by Axilea MU 9/30/2011
A poem that is also like a song, Liana. I can almost imagine it being sung. The last two lines are so sad, but beautiful and effective: I can see those bridges burn.
