Is it only me???

It’s been a decade now,
Since we last saw each other.
But it still hurts me to know,
That you’ve moved on with another.

I still remember our times together,
When we talked about ‘happily ever after’.
Sometimes I can’t help but wonder,
Is it only me, or do you also still remember?

Every other night, I look at your picture,
And reach for my phone to dial your number.
But if I really called, would it be a bother?
Is it only me, or do you also still suffer?

I still listen to the same songs,
That you used to sing only for me.
I try my best to stay strong.
Is it only me, or do you also still think of me?

It’s so damn crazy, how I never knew,
That I could never move on to someone new.
It’s sad that you’ll never know how I long for you,
Is it only me, or do you wanna come back to me too?

Waking up from the dream

My name is Maria Teresa Pratico aka Ladysag77. I’m just a woman trying to walk this journey of life in truth. Being creative is my soul’s purpose and I achieve that through poetry, writing a blog, painting and dancing. My motto is “Triumphing over Trauma”. In 2011, I first became aware that I needed to reconnect with my soul. I started my journey of healing by 1st exploring my mental and emotional health, being diagnosed with CPTSD, which led to a more spiritual approach where I find myself today as a shamanic healer. There are many routes one can take that lead to the soul. No matter what, I never give up on myself. I can now say that I love myself and my spirit is finally free from cover. Unraveling the conditioning and programming continues to take introspection and will never cease. Life is beautiful once you decide to discover what your soul truly came here to do. Mine is to spread love and kindness. I host a blog about my journey at https://www.emotionalmusings.com and have written 3 books of poetry available on Amazon. “Emotional Musings” “My Soul’s Language” and “My Heart’s Song”  https://linktr.ee/Ladysag77

Moving

its hard to accept
the fact that its dead
but you blocked me away
so theres no room to stay

ill move out of your way
so that you can someday
find the right man
and hold on to his hand

no part of my plan
i do now understand
ill leave you alone
will not come back, oh no

living life, moving on
tho the feelings still strong
you just didnt love me
i must stop holding on.

I started writing texts on 25th of September 2020 because i got My Heart broken and didnt know how to cope with My sadness.

Always You

Words hover below my breath
Wanting to leap
From the depth of my heart
Onto the whispers of my lip
I wonder if your heart yearns
To hear my words
Somewhere in the space
Between love and regret
Where I can confess
The years I have spent
Quietly remembering you

My knowledge of your love for me

my knowledge of your love for me
is the shade of a full-leaved tree across my heart;
it brings calm
and the possibility of sleep

Shitty start of the week

Hello everyone! 

I am currently taking some vacation days off and do you know what is a shitty way to start our vacation and your weekHaving a 8AM appointment at your dentist. That my friends is a shitty way to start anything 

mean it’s not like I can go somewhere with the pandemic causing more problems in Croatia but still, I could’ve slept this morning instead of being at the dentist. Jus to give you a nice explanation of why I am complaining so much – I HATE DENTISTS.  

When I was a kid I actually punched my dentist. My mother had a blast raising me 😀

Do you know what I do not understand? These dentists and other doctors are supposed to be intelligent people. They can’t even tell time! They are like “this will take just one more second” and then proceed to drill your teeth like they are searching for gold for the next 20 minutes. Assholes.  

But I survived and so did the dentist. I did not punch this one for a change. I have another appointment on WednesdayVery excited about going through that shit again 

Currently, I am back home in Zabok and as soon as I step into my apartment, my publishing schedule on the blog goes out the window so I am sorry about this. I am just a bit spoiled and lazy when I get home but I will be up and publishing your lovely Poetry Bar works in no time.  

The good thing about today is that my online delivery is coming so I will be spending the rest of the day waiting for the GLS driver to come and make my day! I have been doing a little bit of winter shopping and I cannot wait to show you everything I got 

Have a lovely (dentist free) week! 

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna 

Africa, untamed

She lives in me
Her strength spurs me
Her vision steers me

In loneliness I hear
Her lioness roar
Wild without fear

In darkness I see
The night bush vast
With no boundary

Beating drums of
Life lived loud
No taming of sound

Colours vibrant
Dancing the streets
She is Africa in me

I keep deleting things

ive lost another text
i dont like to feel stressed
it could make me upset
and i wouldnt want that

ill write another text
to make up for the lost one
the feelings for the one gone
will never be undone

i feel like i am pressed
to sit and write when i come
to find new words that i want
for this lovesong remains unsung

i wrote another text
to make space in head and heart
wonder who i’ll meet next
someone who too shares art?

I started writing texts on 25th of September 2020 because i got My Heart broken and didnt know how to cope with My sadness.

Black Sheep

In a corner of a boulevard,
Hidden in plain sight.
He’s constantly on his guard,
‘Cause everyday is a fight.

All alone in this crowded world,
No place he can call his home.
Shivering in the ruthless cold,
He just sits there like a garden gnome.

The crescent moon his only friend,
That just stares at him while he soaks in the rain.
That long winter night somehow he spends,
But so much crisis still remains.

He sees someone passing by,
And dares to call out for help.
But there’s no response to his cry,
He’s ignored just like a whelp.

He doesn’t have no aspiration,
All he can think of is survival.
But somehow he always ends up in frustration,
‘Cause he always finds himself in a trial.

Although treated like a street pup,
He wonders why they call him “black sheep”.
Hoping that he doesn’t ever wake up,
He silently cries himself to sleep.
