Image for the poem shades of melancholy

shades of melancholy

my flowers reach for the sun inside me
but it's hidden behind the melancholy
that bleeds through my happy expression

darkening my internal skies
with somber shades of blue
the colors blend with my soul

my soul aches from growing pains
as it stretches and reaches for truth
inside me, there is a well of great beauty

it bubbles eternally
a place for me to draw strength
on the dark days

my nature won't be fully realized
without pain's epiphany
bringing to light the real me

wildflower dreams will have to wait
for the full rotation of self-realization
bringing the sun back round to me
