AN ARMENIAN IN PARIS
     THE STORY of La MarieLena

the snow it was falling
      when I first came
              to zis small Parisian cafe

now za leaves zay are falling
      it is all za same
              in zis small Parisian cafe

it is all za same
      za longing, za sadness
              but I play za game
                       I smile
                              but it is za same


while za snow is falling
              outside zis Parisian cafe
or za leaves are falling
night time is falling
      daylight is ending

there are no new beginnings
             not in zis small Parisian cafe



snow it was falling
      daylight was ending
              no new beginnings
                      just remembering

just remembering
      once I loved
              now I am longing

as za snow is falling
as za leaves are falling
as night time is falling
     in zis small cafe
          at za very end of day



my love has gone away

and I stay all alone

          in zis small Parisian cafe

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

Armenian music was playing -
the sense of loss and more loss.
In most of the pieces,
the sense of loss was
too heavy for words.

That feeling is pervasive in much Armenian music,
coming from heavy losses in Armenian history -
most powerfully, from the 1915 genocide
of at least 1.5 million Armenians
by Ottoman Turkey.


Still ... in one piece, the tone was lighter -
and words came to me,
words fitting, not stories of devastation -
no words there -
but words fitting ... light sorrow ...
light lost love poems,
light sad love poems,
light poems about eternal loss and longing ...

They are words from la MarieLena,
an Armenian in Paris,
sitting forever alone
in an small Parisian Cafe.

She was alone.
Love had gone.
Loss.

"Za snow it was falling ... "

The seasons changed.
Her sense of loss did not.

"Now leaves zay are falling ... "

The time of day?

"Night time is falling ..."

So, lost love poems ...
in a small Parisian cafe.

from La MarieLena

There's the Argentine tango,
the American rock and roll,
and then ... the Armenian ache ...
so much lost ...
never to come again.

A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.




 


SAD SAD SAD
LOST LOVE POEMS, LYRICS, SONGS

In a Parisian cafe
the Armenian mood is heavy.

Loss and longing.

Loss and regret.

The past can never come again.

Is it cafe music? French cafe music?

Lost love music, poetry ...
the feeling of longing for lost love,
the feeling there will never again be love.

Poems about lost love
bring up such feelings of sadness, longing ... and loss.

Lost love lyrics
lie heavy on the heart.
