Falling into Quicksand…..
Sometimes when the darkness visits in absolute broad daylight, the storm clouds gather covering the sun, stealing the warmth, deleting the smiles I so want to shine but grief takes control and ruins my tones.
The rain pours upon my face as I once again confront the rage. This demon decides whenever it wants to cause issues that rudely interrupt, bends you to your knees. Impaled on the misery that imprisons me.
Steps that I stumble even on level ground, slowly watch as my world turns itself upside down, watching the heartache unfold. The madness that bites the sadness with visious attacks, the feelings that don’t leave but stay in your heart.
That memory crushing your mind, trapped like falling into quicksand. Finding yourself in a fortress of lost souls whilst everyone goes around their daily chores. Reminiscing until thoughts turn sinister and then you plummet back into the arms of your darkest torture.
The pain grips, the sorrow drips, fists clench the fights of yesterdays fails. The nightmares become reality as the mind bends the memory making you lose the will, unable to function, like pressing a button of total destruction.
Your demon takes your entire existence, only leaves when it’s sure you’ve witnessed the horror, the pain, the lowest you’ve been until you click like a switch and return. The time you’ve searched for the You that you lost slowly appears out of the dark.
Your head rising from the gloom that surrounded, your eyes focus but struggle in Sunlight. A new day that took years of battle, a new smile beams from the hassle. A new you, a much stronger version from the shadows that tried so hard to break you.
