The Flight


I felt the presence
of an enormous shaped shadow
coming down in front of me
giant wings of courage
protecting me like a feathered shield
once again she was here
reassuring me, that I wasn't alone
she was right here
holding my hand
I couldn't even shake, my tremors
soothed by her grasp
her glow was so powerful
guiding me 
with a sense of tranquility
I felt strong
and as she swept me up from the depth of this my deepest darkness
holding me tight under her faithful wings
we were flying, flying into a magnificent sunrise
warm rays tickling my cheeks
until she decides I've seen enough
until she decides I'm finally ready
landing in a place where the light shines bright
she is silent
once again I see her eyes of fifteen carat diamonds
in a moment, she's gone
leaving her message all around me
in front of me, placing me gently on my road to walk
I now need to believe in myself 
I now need to take control of my fear...
and just like that I did.

      A flight without fight and you were there...
      I couldn't write anything like that, but as a rich visual description of a release from depression and anxiety I think you have owned it, Teddy.

      • Teddy.15

        My dear Dave, not depression for me but it could be for those who read it as it has a different meaning to each reader. so thank you, definitely anxiety of what i was going through in that moment a small procedure for a type of cancer I'm happy to say, it was all done and dusted the same day. Thank you for your very kind words 🌹
