Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were bask, grief and raise.
Note: If you are reading this poem,
you are not the inspiration for it.
Bask in moody retreat,
With dark looks
Used as bait,
But refusing to allow
A remedy to the mournful state
Saps and brings just grief
I can see your design
Resist the urge to compete:
The problem’s yours,
