A work in Progress...

Sometimes when I wake and the day has started anew…
I turn over, rub my eyes and turn off the wailing bedside alarm next to you.
The fog has rolled in over the valley today,
The depression or joy will hit me and the feelings won’t easily go away.
I place my feet firmly beside my bed,
Roll the covers off, stretch out my arms and scratch my sleepy head.
I anxiously await as I am not sure of which mood I will have yet today.
I want to wipe off all the issues that haunted me through yesterday.
I walk slowly to the shower and use the bathroom quickly too.
I start the water to wash off the moods that seep through like sticky white glue.
The soap starts to bubble and my eyes slowly wake
I reach for the shampoo and my hand starts to shake.
As the sleep and nightmares wash clockwise down the drain..
I reach for the towel and think…“I know I am not insane”.
I towel off and wipe the foggy bathroom mirror clear
I slowly start to focus on the stranger soaking wet standing quietly there.
My mind tends to wander and my words tend to ramble.
I hear the traffic outside and then really start to scramble.
As the door opens and I am on my way to work again today…
I put on the smile, kiss the kids and the depression thankfully starts to fade away.
I walk through the day in a sort of fog where instinct and repetition kick in
My world becomes normal and I get comfortable again in my skin.
Then the day moves on and the job is complete.
I rush home, cook dinner and put up my tired feet.
The children and I watch t.v. for the night
We talk, laugh and put aside our daily troubles and think we are alright.
Then, later that evening after the shows are all done
I dress for sleep and prepare again for it all to be gone.
I climb into my bed, put my pillow under my head
My dreams pounce upon me as the frustrations unwind
I put my soul to sleep and close down my mind.
Then I pull all the covers up quickly around me.
I shut my eyes and drift off quietly.
Knowing that this day is done and anxiously waiting for my mood to depart.
I am ready now for the next day, necessary journey and new emotion to start.
