Aphrodite Anastasia Menegaki Poems

Write me a song for the man that I love
Say, could his heart be mine?
There as I stare the world far away
All that I see can't say

Untamed nature, wild and free
Free as only the winds can be
Soft as velvet and black as coal
Daring and boundless is their soul

Seize the day, seize the chance
Seize the feelings in my glance
Grasp the moment, fear no longer
Waiting won't make you stronger

Into the valleys of blood
Soldiers walk through filthy mud
Blood, iron and hopeless tears
Dare not to reveal your fears.

There are wishes
There are kisses
There are princes
There are thousand riches

Look at me, look me in the eye
I'm the child with skin like coal
With a hungry vulture waiting behind me
And no one to stand beside me

Στο κύμα ψίθυροι της καρδιάς μου,
Ξεβράζει ο αφρός τα όνειρά μου,
Πλάι σε κοχύλια της αμμουδιάς ερατεινά.
Κι όσα εύχεται η καρδιά μου,

Anchors aweigh, setting sail, full speed ahead,
To isles and seas deep, of safe ports instead.
Our Captain knows these seas like the back of his hand;
But ten striped dolphins led the way to a piece of land,

As leaves fall upon the land under clouded skies
Painted with colours of white, blue and grey
I see nature change before my eyes
Summer fades in the arms of an autumn day

A gun in the hand, a bomb in a bag,
Hundred lives, hundred souls in death to drag;
Amidst a square, where families come to play,
At a train station, at a club, night or day;

Myths and spells of a faraway land
Where sun is like fire and skin is tanned
Travelling through the land of gods and pharaohs
My heart's pierced from love's arrows

Witless heart wants me away to flee,
In rain to turn and fall on thee;
Harm and sadness never to cause,
Nor to freeze the warmth of an applause;

Years pass, as music notes they come and go
Adagio… fortissimo… legato…
Yet in that old studio
I still hear the echoes of long ago

Books, books, projects and that exam,
Math, management, economics, and law;
Almost done, but forgot to write a case, damn!
Where are my books of adventures to leave me in awe?

Μικρά στενά και μπαχαρικά,
τούρκικος καφές και ναργιλές
Αγιά Σοφιά αγάπη μου παλιά
Στου Βόσπορου τα νερά

Alleys, crooks and an old witch
Voodoo, ghosts and a little wine
I found a spell to make you mine
It won't hurt, won't give you an itch

I got a chance to hear his voice sing a song
It was a song of two lovers who felt something strong
It was a story from long so very long ago
Hidden like all Paris' secrets you'll never know

A lion and snake made a nest
Feeding out of all my heart's fears
Putting my love to a test
Lying upon my pain and tears

So tell me, what do you believe?
Even if I still look naïve
Speak to me of your thoughts
Even if takes a thousand words

In the amber of your glance
Teach me the steps of that dance
Through the stronghold of your heart
Show me how passion becomes an art

Aphrodite Anastasia Menegaki Biography

Born in Greece on a November morning, I grew up with an almost instinctive love for music, poetry and fine arts. Started reading at the age of four, and soon enough I was constantly found in the library of my parents' house, searching the pages of some old book, either to read a story of pirates and knights or a poem written long ago under moon's light. Instead of dolls and fancy toys, I wanted notebooks to write down my thoughts. Music accompanies my life ever since I was born. To me, music is the only language that can speak to the heart of every human being around the world, and expresses all that lies deep within the soul sometimes without using a single word. I am a true believer of the phrase Where there is a will, there is a way. I adore kids & animals. I love my piano, photography, horse riding, swimming, scuba diving, history, adventures and mysteries. I have a 1st Class BSc in Shipping Transport, an MSc with Distinction in Shipping Business, and a MA in International Relations and Diplomacy. I enjoy working on a poem, or reading a novel, or analysing a four hundred year old painting, trying to uncover a story that has been lost for centuries, or when I'm standing at the shore, facing the everlasting sea. I enjoy travelling, or when I try to depict all that I see and love through the lens of my camera, when I am with the ones I love, when I stand under the bright sunlight, or when I find myself lost in a new adventure. I follow my heart. I am myself; cannot lie and will not pretend. :) Aphrodite-Anastasia Menegaki)

The Best Poem Of Aphrodite Anastasia Menegaki

For The Man That I Love

Write me a song for the man that I love
Say, could his heart be mine?
There as I stare the world far away
All that I see can't say

Over the seas, mountains and trees
Oceans of hope and lies
All that I wish, all that I long
All that he can't disguise

Write me a song for the man that I love
Say, could his heart be mine?
There as I hear his song far away
All that I feel can't say

Write him a note, write him a poem
Write him now all I feel
Letter of love, maybe of hope
What my heart should conceal

Hear one by one all sounds of this land
Reaching the sea and skies
Hear now my heart that's beating so fast
Hoping to see his eyes

Write him a note, write him a poem
Write him now all I feel
He might ignore, he might not care
What my heart will reveal

Write me a song for the man that I love
Say, could his heart be mine?
Hope that his voice could once sing for me
Say, could that man love me? …

Dimitrios Galanis 17 February 2016

Aphrodite-Anastasia I do firmly believe is growing up to become a real of her own time poetess.She has not only the talent of a sensitive poet but seems to be eager, by her humble character, eager to learn, to be taught by others too.Her first verses she put in poems show her ability to bring into feeling's light a whole world of sensitive icons, imageries, mataphors so that her poem be picturable and out of beauty shining. I hope she finds the way for even more dashing metaphors, the characteristic of modern worthy poesy.I wish she will prefer short poems with the clever, sensitive, human surprise at their last verses.To take into notice.Poems are not treatices on a theme, poems are a mere glance, a glimpse of an aching, usually, painful, enchanted, hoping eye.I'm sure for her success which I do heartiedly wish her.

Aphrodite Anastasia Menegaki Quotes

Sometimes walking away isn't easy. Sometimes it's hard to move to the next chapter, to turn the page and not look back. Yet one thing is for sure; the instinct is never wrong. It's what tells us to move forward, on a different path, on a different direction perhaps. But no matter what we'll decide at the end, the point is to always have faith. Faith in ourselves and trust our heart. I believe that's how we can grow the wings we lack.

If I am ever asked what equipment I used when I took your pictures; I'll answer my heart
