Poetry from Maja Milojkovic

Younger middle aged white woman with long blonde hair, glasses, and a green top and floral scarf and necklace.
Maja Milojkovic
You turn my mind around you 
as a rosary in prayer 
When you surrender your soul to God 
my step towards you is moving. 
You buy me without money 
You call me without invitation 
I'm coming unannounced. 
Pray, I am closest to you in prayer.


YOU unknown man who prays to God 
I am sending you a message 
through my dreams, find me, my knight! 
I raised ramparts of self-protection from all people, 
so high that I could neither see the sun nor the moon.
I dance in a circle with silk threads 
and skillfully wrap myself and 
separate myself from everyone and 
I'm already suffocating from my own darkness, 
recognize me that I am a soul in need of deliverance 
find me, take me, and set me free me from slavery. 
I don't know what love is, I don't even know what marriage is,
all those aspirations of other people are foreign to me. 
Find me and take me I need you!

Maja Milojković was born in 1975 in Zaječar, Serbia.
She is a person to whom from an early age, Leonardo da Vinci's statement "Painting is poetry that can be seen, and poetry is painting that can be heard" is circulating through the blood.
That's why she started to use feathers and a brush and began to reveal the world and herself to them.

As a poet, she is represented in numerous domestic and foreign literary newspapers, anthologies and electronic media, and some of her poems can be found on YouTube.
Many of her poems have been translated into English, Hungarian, Bengali and Bulgarian due to the need of foreign readers.
She is the recipient of many international awards.
"Trees of Desire" is her second collection of poems in preparation, which is preceded by the book of poems "Moon Circle". 
She is a member of the International Society of Writers and Artists "Mountain Views" in Montenegro, and she also is a member of the Poetry club "Area Felix" in Serbia.
