About Malike Seymenoglu

I am posting my poems on Family Friend Poems because in the midst of my suffering from my husband’s death, I turned to poetry to relieve myself from melancholy as well as emptiness.
After spending many sleepless nights reading poems on Family Friend Poems, I resonated powerfully with those who lost their loved ones. Their reflection on death helped me to come to terms with my beloved husband’s traumatic exit from this world. I stopped crying and started expressing my own feelings with mournful poems. I found poetic compositions can articulate pain with such an elegance, prose just cannot cut it.
Poems are usually filled with passion; it is always thought-provoking and can be interpreted in many different ways. Getting familiar with other people’s poetic thoughts can encourage you to alter your world view and more readily accept reality.
I cannot dance to save my life, but I am trying to enable my words to rock and roll on paper. As the French poet Paul Valery pointed out, prose was walking, poetry dancing, so poetry is my saviour.
The photo here was taken a year before my husband’s death, life seemed perfect then. Now a year after my husband’s departure, I am not sure if my profoundly disabled daughter is even aware that her father is never coming back.

    in Husband Death Poems

    Death doesn't wander in randomly,
    The executor in a shroud;
    It acts without fear or favour,
    To instigate pain under dusky cloud.

    in Poems for Kids

    As a small child I fancied to sail
    By ocean to a land of fairy tales,
    Camp in a field with Little Red Riding Hood.
    Dazzling stars would fire at the Big Bad Wolf.

  • A Wife's Grief

    in Husband Death Poems

    If death is nothing at all,
    We will be enjoying summer and fall;
    We shall talk and laugh as we have always done,
    Instead of waiting for my time to come.
