Lust & Love By Alla Tatiyants My life has been a mess, I need someone's caress. My life is passing me by, Without me caring why. I have been to the bottom of everything, and yet it seems like I still don't know a thing. Everything in my life seems to be perfect, but yet when I look around... It seems like something is still missing. When am I going to find that one thing that makes our lives look so perfect and makes us feel so relieved? Are you that someone that I have been missing? Or is it just me trying to see something that doesn't seem to exist? Or may be my life has been so horrible and cold that I always long for something to be there, and eventually I realize that the only thing that has been around me is cold and suffocating air! And when I realize this you will see that it will be too late to change anything in my life, because that same moment... You will be kneeling next to my grave! Oh yes, you can say that I was brave, and you can say that I was blind because even though I knew that this something I was never to find I still searched without a doubt. And may be my loss will help you realize that life is too short to search for something that can never be found, I realized it a bit too late and now I see you next to my grave, and hope my tears reach you from up here, and my voice will echo in your head... And yet I still am searching, knowing that there is no life after death. Alla Tatiyants is a student at CSUN. She was born in Baku and has written poetry since she was 15 years old. Her poetry is written when feelings and emotions become so overwhelming and heavy that it becomes unbearable to keep it all inside; when there is no one it can be said to and no words explained with. Alla's poems are submitted for publication in a book where talented teenagers have a chance to have their voices heard and poems published. Copyright © 2002 Alla Tatiyants
