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.

Not A Lullaby
I need a lullaby
to smooth my mind
when I'm too afraid
to close my eyes
But the only one
that dances through my brain
is her lullaby
that drowns my soothing rain.
