Thursday Moda #139: Our Song on the Radio - Poetry.

Good Morning and Happy Thursday and Happy November to you all! How was your Halloween?! Ours was great! You might have caught some of it on my Instagram stories. If you don't follow me on Instagram - please do so! I post different, new content there every day! =) Thank you for doing so!

I obviously had a long but exhausting day overall yesterday, but such a productive day nevertheless! I had every intention of coming home, eating something quickly after I took Vivian trick-or-treating and writing my new Fashion Thursday Moda post. Alas I caught up with a friend and then I was so exhausted and fell asleep. Therefore, I got a new Poetry for you today. But I figured it is fine since you usually like my poems, no?! This one has a lot of truth to it - most of the ones I have written this year, do. I like fictional or creative writing with truth attached to it. It makes the piece more raw and if I am being honest more beautiful. To tell you the truth I am sure we all have at least one song that reminds us of someone: a past lover, an ex, a long-time friend, a friend we haven't seen or heard from in a long time, a relative of friend we don't talk to anymore, a co-worker, a classmate, or perhaps an event, a memory from since we were young children, etc. And one day we hear those songs on the radio and our memories come flowing, our hearts start beating harder, our emotions fill our souls, our body shivers, etc, etc. Am I right?! Also, this poem today reminds me a little bit of the new song from the band Train "Calls me Sir". It is their latest single which I love. I don't know why my poetry reminds me of this song - maybe because the story and video of the song show us a throwback of the singer when he remembers his past as a child - but I thought that was a fun fact to share. I hope you enjoy this poem today written a couple of days ago and let me know honestly if you like reading my poems?! I take your input into huge consideration and really want to bring you content you all enjoy! Thanks again for the feedback.


Our  Song  on  the  Radio...
[October 28th 2018, 12.19 A.M.]



Our song on the radio,
lyrics filling up the heart,
memories rupturing my soul,
shivers running down my arms...

Our song on the radio,
a long time I haven't heard it,
the same words I always loved,
the same metaphors that mimicked our story...

Our song on the radio,
but it doesn't feel the same,
I am empty inside all of a sudden,
you are not my song anymore, not my heart...
. If Our song on the radio continues to play,
so many memories attached to it,
I am driving through the quiet, light rain
but it feels like I am caught into heavy hail...

Our song on the radio feels like yesterday,
but it was months, years ago,
I loved you and you loved me that I do know,
but something got lost in translation...

And here we are like this lonely song,
one of the most beautiful songs out there,
but that song wasn't played in so long,
just like the two hearts that were departed...

Now someone else calls me his lover,
someone else may call you one too,
the city sleeps under the lyrics of a plethora of songs
and I have found other lyrics, other songs...

Our song on the radio... still meaningful somewhat,
I am sure the same song means a lot to so many couples,
but we are not a couple anymore,
I am a woman searching for her self-joy...
but hopefully you are now a changed man!

Our song on the radio...
how much I loved that song,
so many smiles, dances and romances under those sweet notes,
but today I want to dance away from all those memories,
...they are still sacred and beautiful in my heart
and I want to preserve them with dignity just like the love I had for you!

We are two molecules inside the same oxygen we breathe each day,
we are two people who share the same child we so much love,
we are two souls that once fell in love,
we are two people who belonged together...
till life decided to create other songs!




Last week was a successful linkup with close to one hundred looks. Thank you everyone!! The looks I was attracted to were all so different but I loved them all. However I did see a little 'theme' - Blazers and Jackets, so many gorgeous ones. It makes me exciting for Holiday Outfits. The over 40s and 50s age group killed it! I mean look at the outfits, below. Also, you loved, loved my Grey+Mauve Work Outfit featuring my Glen Plaid Blazer by Target. I received so many compliments on that outfit.
This week's featured blogger is the darling DARLENE from Aquamarina Style an over 50s' stylish lady who always puts together very chic outfits, be it easy+casual or elegant+dressy. And that is definitely evident on the outfits from the collage above. First, she tried the Very Chic Faux Leather Spanx Leggings which looked so good paired with both the Burberry Camel Tunic+Leopard Flats and just as good with the Boyfriend-Cut Glen Plaid Blazer - very similar to the one I had on last week for Thursday Moda. I also loved the office look with a Patterned Knit Pencil Skirt. There is a subtle red stripe on her skirt and I love that Darlene brought it out with her comfy red ballet flats. I only discovered Darlene's blog less than 6 months ago but she has continued to link up with me week after week. She is no stranger to the Thursday Moda Favorites. But last week ALL of her outfits deserved an A+ in my book!

'Fall in the Air', a gorgeous floral jacquard blazer, cropped pants, statement earrings and the most gorgeous bow pumps make up Tatiana's super chic, layered office look.
That is such a beautiful 'Fall Floral Dress' Shelly. The colors are vibrant and gorgeous. Paired with the long white cardigan, mushroom-colored booties and cognac bag, the dress is perfectly-styled for Fall.
My fellow Michigander Jamie is indeed in 'Sweater Weather' in a cozy, everyday outfit. The colors of her blanket scarf are so fun and unique!
Julie is already showing us a sneak peak into the holiday season with 'Great Party Dresses at Eva Trends'. The embroidered flower lace applique on that nude+blue dress is stunning and I love that Julie paired it with a matchy blue velvet blazer.
Nora always designs her own jackets. This time around in the 'Verona Boucle Jacket' she killed it in such a classic and modern black+white look, complete with black pumps.
Nancy always wears many skirts and dresses. This time in a 'Snake Print' shirtdress-style, she paired it with tall patent leather boots. And yes Nancy: I am loving the fun and edgy snakeskin trend!

  13. You write beautiful poems Ada. Isn't it amazing how our words convey thoughts that may not be seen or heard? Our Halloweem was a long day but not because of a lot of trick or treats because there were too many things going on. I can't believe it's first day of November. Happy first!
