Anita Atina Poems

Fact exists, truth needs to be believed

My truth is important to me

We dislike in others, reflections of

The dark shadows of our soul

Wobbly headed, seeing double, slow to react,

Will my head float away if I don’t hold it down?

Your true raiment most refined

Is not made of silk or satin or lace

Spirituality and sexuality are different sides of the same coin

The body is home to both

Away from the confusion of logic

Not blinded by ego’s thrall

You have given me a second life

Now I have begun afresh, to dream again

We are afraid, only when we love, for those we love
But we often hurt those we love, the most
We are often hurt most, by those who lay claim to our love
We sometimes reveal only half truths

Your kiss, your embrace, the way you touched me
I still shiver with delight
You made me feel so beautiful

Are you alone
Eating a meal, with only thoughts for company
In a new city, with no one to share the discovery
Or when the odd one out at a party, is you

If life’s a river
Flowing on a course
Long proven to be the best way
To reach the sea, then flow on

One day, I want to talk
A long meandering conversation
Without watching the clock
While rushing to catch a flight, or a train

I am the daughter of the sun and the sea

And I proudly stand ashore

The garden of five senses

Welcomes with flowers, of all hues

A lazy drizzle ceased,

The garden still wrapped in a languorous haze,

If you’re moved to tears

Don’t be afraid, to show you care

Deliciously warm

With ripe tomatoes

Why is it that we remain tied down in pain

To relationships that have turned cancerous

The perception of beauty
Is only the opposite of
The perception of ugliness

Anita Atina Biography

My poetry seeks clarity, hope and humour. On some days, a poem is ‘given’ and what a wonderful feeling it is to receive. That joy grows as I share this precious gift with fellow poets who know what it takes to write poetry that makes us, the poet, happy. I am an imperfect poet and choose to convey feelings, and the many discoveries of our life’s journey, with clarity rather than over-compliance to form. My output is, of course, subjective. I love hearing responses to it both sympathetic and contrary, for this is the nature of art. Thank you for reading, and perhaps commenting, on my work.)

The Best Poem Of Anita Atina

The Perception Of Truth

Fact exists, truth needs to be believed

My truth is important to me

I also understand that

Your truth is important, to you

My life is not just a single truth

But a village of many kinds of truth

The version you believe, may be different from mine

And both versions are true, to each of us

The duality of truth

Fights for resolution

And yet, coexists

Quietly, when it needs to

Funny concept this truth

Does fact indeed exist?

And do we really need,

To believe the truth?

Are both just empty shadows

We chase, to play our role

In a divine comedy

For an audience of one
