Today I May Grow and Bloom…A Poem

Just musings going through my head.  A rough draft if you will.

Today I may grow and bloom

Tomorrow I may be filled with gloom

My mood shifts from day to day

Leaving me without words to say.

So much I wish I could express

Without leaving someone else a mess.

I crawl deeper and deeper within

Fearing that one day one of these retreats will win.

Desperation fills my soul

Like tears gathering in a howl.

When will the pain end I often ask…

Maybe when I stop pretending and take off my mask.

W.L.
