Carry the Love by L D Wright

Carry the Love…..

Yesterday I cried a little, the pain just got too much, I had to release the gates before tears caused a flood.
Sadness through Grief is the hardest nut to crack, no wonder we all relate it to the colour black.
Left wandering, remembering, reminiscing over times once shared but now we’ll be missing smiles now your no longer there.

Lost at the crossroads, not knowing which road to take, knowing your not going to be there whichever way I turn.

I hate it when this sadness decides to visit, hurts in the very pit of my stomach, takes me back to the times I don’t want to be anywhere near.

The raw emotions, the hurtful feelings, the sorrow, the tears.
I’ve been here many times and it still hurts like hell but I know in time it will vanish but one day visit me again.

I’ll never get use to the way it feels, to be wrapped in emotions, unable to find words. To walk around aimlessly, to visit a memory, to smile then start crying because it meant so much to me.

Grieving isn’t easy, it’s really truly hard and it mixes up your feelings and wraps around your heart. It stamps upon the memories and tears them all apart and you’ll definitely find it almost impossible to cope.

We say our goodbyes, we cry again, we feel that pain like a personal war we became injured in.
There’s no easy fix for what happens next, just one foot forward and hope the other follows it.

People ask how your feeling, well I still don’t know how to answer that. Just carry the grief and hold the love in your heart.

I’ll catch you in memories like a ghost came to visit and I’ll stop for a second too watch you dissappear.

One day someone might write a poem just like this just hope it’s not about me.

It comes to us all, eventually catches us up but until that day I’ll just carry the love.

Carry On….. By, L D Wright

Carry On…..

Can’t knock me down, well not for too long. These feet are planted firmly where they belong.

Walked this ground like it belongs to me and this ain’t no place new, it’s been my old stomping ground for about forever now.

I’ll hold my breath longer than you have patience so don’t wait for me to cave in, it’s not part of my behaviour.

This didn’t break me, it just set me back a little but now I’m back and I’m firing on full throttle.

Dived into the fires, covered in smoke but now it’s all clear and I’m only going forward.

Been to the brink when most thought I’d sink, took me a while but I didn’t think there was a time limit.

Some shits hard to break free from but now it’s behind me.

I’ve shattered whatever tried to break me and that shit storm is over as I bask in the sunshine.

Some weather brings black clouds with rolling thunder but I prefer to shine like I’m supposed too.

Life hasn’t been easy but whatever is, if its worth doing then you have to go through certain bad events.

Tomorrows always coming, just another day, grab it with both hands and don’t ever let it rain on your parade.

Time and time and time again storms blow in but blow out again.

You’ll see me smile when the lightning cracks because I know the sun’s on the horizon, it just hasn’t reached me yet.

When life’s void pulls you in be prepared to claw your way back out again.

It isn’t no pleasure cruise when life starts to crumble but just remember your stronger than this, infact anything.

Don’t carry guilt, don’t drag the nightmares around, let go of that like you just grabbed hot coals.

When the eruptions block out the sun remember when the dust settles you aren’t on your own.

Don’t linger on the burdens, don’t surrender, this is your life and its such a huge glorious multi coloured picture.

So sadness & bad times effect us, keep them like a lesson learnt but remember you dropped that hurt before your fingers got burnt.

Only skin and bones but one with a heart of pure gold, let the sun shine, the storms will pass so carry on smiling regardless.

Life will take you back to times you’d rather forget but just look at your feet and take the first step.

Take a look, see how far you’ve come, see what stopped you once has now come and gone allowing you to Carry On.

Stronger Version….. By L D Wright

Stronger Version…..

I feel it pull against my Spirit. Takes my fears and thoughts to extreme limits.

Like a blink of an eye it’s upon me, chest aches as I struggle, heads racing, breath quickens, feels like I’m falling.

No time to listen as the anguish takes over and destroys my ambitions. Breath quickens.

It’s almost like a demon crept right inside my skin as my body shakes and I hear it scream.

Uncontrollable yet they say relax, good advice but I feel like I’m about to have some major attack.

Chest is banging like an exorcism refuses to leave, invades my escape, down on one knee thinking, this is it.

I look around but it’s all gone blurred and I can’t utter one single word.

My head feels like it’s travelling at light speed, getting faster than my heart beats.

Deep breaths, hot sweats, panic sets.

My mind feels the pressure once again as its attack sends me spiraling into insanely dark circles.

I can’t control it, it’s scary as hell when the demon taps and your entire body feels its grip.

Even though we can take a lot, our burdens eventually bring us down, We’re all delicate, easily broke but with time and patience we can all be fixed.

Step by step and easy does it and one day soon we’ll all rise above it.

Whatever life throws your way with a little luck and a whole heap of Love you can, you will be the you of yesterdays gone and be a much stronger version of the one you are now.

Your eyes closed….. By L D Wright

Your eyes closed…..

Your not alone, use your mind and your wherever you want to go.

Set the goals you want to achieve in. Open the gates that create the dreams that become reality not just fantasy.

It’s all there, close your eyes, dare to dream. Become the author of the unwritten pages, the super hero that came to save us.

The warrior in the distant battle, power to stop tanks, end conflicts, Like the Eagle soaring, the feather to venture any weather.

Whatever your the star with the main role. Drift away returning with jewels of your mind.

Your not alone you just choose to be, sit, think for a second, see it start to happen.

Relive stories, change them up, rewind, stop, smile. See you just saw a thousand people and you didn’t even move.

Believe in yourself, powerful thoughts that belong and some borrowed but you made them your very own little story.

You can achieve anything, just breathe it all in.

Relax it’s easy, see it’s already happening. Go back to dreams and rethink the order, did it happen or did you just recreate the story.

Magical moments that grew from a thought not something you purchased but wrote with your soul like a pure genius.

Ever growing miracles created on vacations when your thoughts dared to travel and guess what your still sat & didn’t move a single muscle.

So your not alone, you can virtually time travel, extend your thoughts and the mind will follow.

It’s not a special gift but one we all possess, eyes closed you can visit anywhere,achieve anything.

Fingers write the images created sharing your visions for all to share in.

Before you know it your in the middle of your very best adventure and you still didn’t leave you just closed your eyelids.
Connect all the dots like stars in the sky, your minds a terrific roller-coaster ride.

One you can achieve any impossible task, like grains of sand with eternal endless thoughts as easy as having your eyes closed.

Dark Demons Washed in Sunlight…..

Dark Demons washed in direct sunlight…..

Dark days when my life carreared into that impossible void I so wanted and wished I’d avoid.

When your entire existence smashes into uncountable pieces. Screaming at the sky, shouting “God, Why”.

Walking in broad daylight when your heads locked in darkness and your eyes fixed on the badness.

Asking yourself question after question, not receiving the answers.

Roaming around not going forward, lost in a battle, beaten and broken, facing the fears like you’ve enjoyed the torture, when in fact your just waiting for the tears to stop to refocus.

Life and the demons you meet, glared into eyes glazed with their grief.

Oceans of turmoil, drenched in tears, battled with chaos over the years.

Turning life’s fierce announcements into smiles you lived so long without.

Banging your head from pillar to post, hanging up the fragments that almost erased your last thoughts, wearing them on occasions when the dates tick back round.

Life’s downfalls, torrid times, days you fell further than you did the last time.

Picking yourself up, dusting off the gloom, making room for You. This is your castle and it’s not made of glass, cast out what’s not needed and look forward to the rest.

You’ve been downhill far too long now it’s time to claw back up to a level playing ground.

The smiles you glowed before the sadness showed, dark shaded eyes, head tilted down, look around and what makes you tick, find that smile and totally run with it.

It didn’t kill you, it hurt like hell but your ability to shine in your darkest hours means more to yourself and how you smile at your demons.

These mental memories walk amongst your shadow so best wash your dark demons in direct sunlight.

Your Demons have left. by L D Wright

Your Demons have left…..

Is this a sickness or life’s cruel intention to let us witness our fragile insecurities blended with weakness.

Dwell upon past circumstances that broke down your entire resistance.

Withdrawn, excuses many, alone with our embedded enemy.

Shakes the core of our existence as the demon seeks to live within us.

This ain’t no love song, it’s your worst dream, creating nightmares that act out in broad daylight.

Locked in the confides of your own safe haven leaving you shaken, broken, unable.

Breaking promises you never meant to keep because this demon creates events that haven’t even happened yet.

Feeling lost when your clearly in full view, even lost in the crowd thinking your alone, its just you.

Invisible barriers tear you apart, your motivation just got up and walked. Stopped you dead in your tracks.

Doubtful thoughts and negative outlooks, losing the battle that already broke us.

Taking steps to break the chains that bind you, listening to friends, making arrangements instead of acting on what your demons voice tells you.

Opening your mouth finally letting the words out that you’ve battled to hear, asking for help without fearing the fear.

Igniting the power to create a future that your past confidence hid from all of us.

Learning that life isn’t all dark with pitfalls and gloom, excepting the push that saw you positively bloom.

Life’s many uphill and twisted lanes, getting lost but finally finding yourself again.

Looking at your reflection, introducing yourself, and seeing that smile grow now your demons have left.
