Biography of Marketa Richnavska
I mostly write about my own past and present, I use poetry and fiction to express my feelings and to let my thoughts free, out of my head. I use it as some kind of therapy when I feel like I can't handle my life. I write everytime I'm sad, everytime I feel like I'm in love, every time I can't decide which way to go. It clears my mind and helps me to choose the best I can do.
I also write when some of my friends is in trouble and my strong empathy can't let me sleep peacefully. I write about their lives, but I always put something from me in there, something uplifting or something that could help them with their situation.
I also have few poems dedicated to my muse - Mother Nature, to praise her, to admire her beauty or to thank her for everything she's given to me.
I study British and American Studies in Slovakia, that is why I mostly use English in my poems, but I also have some good ones in Slovak language. What a loss not many of poemhunter members would understand them. Maybe I will translate them someday.
Marketa Richnavska Poems
Opening the old door closing up the new How could I have fallen for something that's not true?
What if the ado in her chest was not her enemy but her confederate?
The screams inside my chest Won't let me stay in rest It's not my heart that moans It's my demon's underdose
I want to soak into your chest and lie like that for some time I want to smell your essence in the rest without others taking it as crime
There walks a girl with a death Always staying behind her back She wonders if its just a spirit Which only she can see
It's the hour It's the time Our bodies should be one
To Live Fully
I hate waiting for better times hate wondering why hate pain I know how usual that sounds
Emotions Are Playing Dead, To Hide Is To...
I stopped searching desperately for the match in need to find something real for I know I never get what I'm looking for
When someone tells you what to do and you once tell them no When somebody is above you You don't know where to go
Why did I have to meet you? Why did you need to show? Oh, please, please, leave me leave me all alone
Not A Lullaby
I need a lullaby to smooth my mind when I'm too afraid to close my eyes
Don'T Ever Listen To The Darkness
Reveal the feathers off your mind Black - like my soul Show me what's shattering inside Erase the coal
I chose the path of good and light the path of truth and care And even though the dark's in sight I'll keep standing there
Sunshine Just Kissed My Neck
SUNSHINE JUST KISSED MY NECK and made my day better Im just sitting here thinking
I locked down my hand
and braided my hair
to prove myself I am free.
I touched the stars
I flew above clouds
just to reach all I can see
I opened my mind
