Let Me Tell You A Story

Published March 5, 2014 by carlyjellis

Let me tell you a story
Of a love so pure and true
He smiled and her and said hello
She said instantly she knew

From that day their lives changed forever
A new chapter had begun
No more worries about the future
One day at a time with the rise of the sun

They spent most days together
Feeling they’d known each other all their lives
A comfortable feeling, a warm feeling
A feeling not clouded over with lies

They fell in love without question
Had never felt love like this before
She gave him everything he wanted
He gave her so much more

They made each other smile again
Their happiness could not be denied
Both had waited so many years
To find a love which made them feel truly alive

Are they still together you ask me
Of course they are, why wouldn’t they be
They were made for each other, meant to be together
And in case you were wondering, the girl is me

Fear & Love

Published October 2, 2013 by carlyjellis

Afraid to give my heart

Afraid of being hurt

Afraid to trust the words spoken to me

Afraid of a man who’s changed my world

 

Scared of the past repeating

Scared of a broken heart

Scared that this all may be a dream

Scared that I won’t be enough

 

Maybe it’s time I took a leap of faith

Maybe this time he will be the one

Maybe he will save my soul and mend my heart

Maybe I may have found my true love

 

 

I need to start looking forward

I need to allow the past to die

I need to embrace the love in front of me

I need to trust the man by my side

 

 

 

 

 

In Dreams

Published September 19, 2013 by carlyjellis

Breathe in deep

Breathe out slow

Not tired enough to sleep

Her heart and mind full of woe

A tear rolls down her cheek

Without warning she starts to weep

Will this loneliness ever end

Will she ever find a lover and a best friend

She lies alone at night

Pondering over her plight

Willing things to change

Wishing her life could turn a page

She drifts off to sleep and into a dream

Where she has found her love

It’s all how it should be

He holds her and kisses her

Tells her she is the one

Then she suddenly wakes up

Her love has gone

She yearns for the dream to come true everyday

Never sure if it will

But continues to try anyway

Will she ever see him

Will they ever meet

She lives in hope one day he will come for her

Only then will her life be complete

Just Listening | Daily Prompt: Singin’ in the Rain

Published June 16, 2013 by carlyjellis

Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us RAIN

The middle of November, a brisk north easterly wind is blowing and along with it comes the rain, big, fat raindrops hitting the windows of the house, hearing them bounce off the rooftop making their own melody. From the comfort found indoors we listen to the rain and wind. Another log is put on the fire and we can feel it’s warmth whilst curled up together on the sofa, a blanket wrapped around our bodies. The cups of hot chocolate sit on the table, the steam rising off them, too hot to drink just yet. We sit together simply talking about our hopes and our dreams, our wants and desires. No distractions, no interruptions, just the sound of the rain, the wind and the roaring fire. We kiss and we cuddle, enjoying the simplicity of a perfect rainy afternoon together.

Still Of The Night

Published June 3, 2013 by carlyjellis

In the still of the night

Whilst the world is asleep

She sits alone in the dark

With not a thought of counting sheep

 

The television is a distraction

A noise that breaks through the silence

But even that can’t stop the thoughts

Of which now make no sense

 

She checks her social media over and over again

In the hope of through the night she will find a friend

But nobody is around so she soldiers on alone

Oh how she doesn’t want to live her life completely on her own

 

Her mind comes alive on nights like this

Her thoughts consumed with so many whys and what if’s

Living in her present, remembering her past

Being hopeful for the future of finding a love that will last

 

No longer is she afraid of what others say or think of her

No longer a girl, no longer a child, no longer a quiet murmur

She has finally learned to love herself and accept the woman she is

A strong independent woman who like others battles with loneliness

 

The silence somehow is deafening as the night lingers on and on

She wishes for morning to break the darkness

So the birds wake up and sing their song

 

But whilst the still of the night remains here

Whilst the stars in the sky shine so bright

In the darkness she no longer feels fear

For a new day in her life is in sight

 

 

A New Beginning

Published May 27, 2013 by carlyjellis

The sun arises

A new day has begun

A new beginning of my life

No more regrets of what I could have done

 

I clearly see now what I am meant to do

How I can regain control and how I can pull through

Nothing will ever defeat me

No one will ever make me feel bad

I refuse to live the rest of my life

Feeling lonely, bitter and sad

 

I will become stronger and wiser

A new me has evolved

Risen from the ashes of past breakdowns

I no longer feel a prisoner, no longer alone

 

Yes a new beginning of my life has started

The first chapter is written and says

That whilst my past is always with me it will not dictate

The woman I have become now on from today
