NaPoWriMo day 22: Lost and Found

Dedicated to a dear friend…

Lost and Found

Lost & Found

napo2015button1

Life can be cruel

But sometimes it’s kind

What you once lost

Again you’ll find

 

Never let go again

Just, hold on tight

Worth to protect

With all your might

 

So many years until

I could call you friend

Now I hope

You’ll stay to the end

 

Lost you once

On a splitting track

But miracles happen

I’m glad to have you back

Throwback Thursday: Battling A Memory Monster


An article about PTSD. Please read and try to understand instead of judge. ❤

petitemagique

On ‘Throwback Thursdays’ I want to share some older Poems and post of mine. I hope you will enjoy!

Today I want to share an article with you I wrote some time ago entitled ‘Battling A Memory Monster’.

ptsd-awareness-month

It’s an article about PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome)

I think it’s very important to know that a lot of people are battling this. Especially around the Holidays! 

Not just veterans, but also victims of violence, abuse and other traumatic experiences.

I have severe PTSD myself and I want to give the people who are battling this, and any other mental condition, a voice, strength and support.

Please, read it. It might give you a better understanding of something that is not visible.

Lots of Love,

12 Bar Blues


Awesome poetry!

Syl65's Blog

The day seems a little longer

Without you

Some things are just out-of-place

Without you

God tells me “hold on, be strong”

Pulling off at the nearest exit

Every radio station playing the same song

The one that says “we belong, we belong, we belong, together”

Perfect weather for it

It’s cold outside

Wishing you were by my side

To keep each other warm

Hot coffee only leaving a bad after taste

Maybe because I’m feeling the time is going to waste

Without you

So I’ll hold on and be strong

Keep on singing this song

“We belong, we belong, we belong”

“Together”

Weather permitting

I’m going to stare at the sky

Imagining I can fly

Without cape or wings

By extraordinary means

Into your arms

Rest my head on your heart

This is peace and how the day should end

This is love and  how the day should start

Share Your World: Week 46


Chasing Destino

On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep? 

A bed.  A bathroom with a shower. A room with a jacuzzi would be awesome.

Music or silence while working?

Music of course.

musica

If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?

Natural light. Purple walls. Big backyard.

What’s your least favorite mode of transportation?

Jet ski or the bus. I dislike both for different reasons.

pinkbus1

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Glad I got to go somewhere with a jacuzzi. Still hoping that my knee heals sooner than later. We also might have a new furry addition to the family – if we can talk Lucas into it. 🙂 And…

A Poetrics for today: Somewhere


A Poetrics for today!

petitemagique

I actually had forgotten about this song a bit until a friend sent it to me.

When I listened closely to the lyrics, I knew I had to make a Poetrics of this amazing song because it’s just so beautiful and filled with so much emotion.

(On this PAGE, you can find some more information about ‘Poetrics’)

Somewhere

Note: The lyrics always stay the property of the band or artist who wrote them. All the credit goes to them.

My poetry is written in White, the Lyrics are written in Blue.

The lyrics of ‘Somewhere’ by Within Temptation

Lost in the darkness, hoping for a sign

Instead there is only silence

can’t you hear my screams?

Never stop hoping, need to know where you are

But one thing is for sure

you’re always in my heart

I’ll find you somewhere

I’ll keep on trying…

The Death of a Great Tusker

Poachers kill beloved Kenyan elephant known for giant tusks

By Faith Karimi, CNN
Sun June 15, 2014

Poachers killed one of Kenya’s most beloved elephants — a behemoth animal with tusks so large, they touched the ground.

Satao was shot with poisoned arrows in the sprawling Tsavo National Park in the country’s southeast.

SATAO

Wildlife officials found his carcass with two massive holes where his tusks once stood. His face was so badly mutilated, authorities used other ways to identify him, including his ears and the pattern of mud caked on his body.

“Satao is dead, killed by an ivory poacher’s poisoned arrow to feed the seemingly insatiable demand for ivory in far off countries. A great life lost so that someone far away can have a trinket on their mantlepiece,” Tsavo Trust said in statement late Friday. 

“Rest in peace…
