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

 

 

Lost Love

Published April 25, 2013 by carlyjellis

I never felt your arms around me

Never felt your warm embrace

Never had the chance to hold you

Or touch your beautiful face

 

You will always be a memory of a love I never had

Would we have ever made it

That question alone drives me mad

 

The fact I can never meet you

Never show you that I care

Never have the chance to be the one

To prove that I can be there

 

I will always regret

What could have been

If only you had looked closer

If only you had seen

 

The love I have inside

I would have given it my all

I would have loved you forever

And would catch you when you fall

 

So farewell my lost love

Think fondly of me

I guess the time has now come to accept

That some things just aren’t meant to be
