* * * by Sara Margaryan The absence of pain is so fragile, that, being afraid of destroying it, I clinch my fists and try to memorize every second of its peacefulness. Then it gives way to pain again and, unable to touch my own fingers, I perceive them as bearers of unknown strength and energy. And I leave them clinched, my teeth shivering, my eyes wide open, and my mind occupied by the most impossible of the dreams: to start living in memories, memories of the fragile absence of pain. -- Sara Margaryan was born in Yerevan, Armenia. She has graduated from Yerevan State Linguistic University and the European Peace University, Stadtschlaining, Austria. At present she studies for a Master program of Asian Studies, Lund, Sweden, specializing in modern Japan. Sara has been writing poetry since childhood and published a book in 1999. She writes mainly in Russian, but also in Armenian and English.
