DARK DOG (BARKING AT THE WORLD)

At the start of the year the universe was calling me to write a new set of poems. I let the ideas that I had sit with me for a while and then I set about writing out what would be the storyline into what the poems would fit. It seemed the work would involve written set pieces and poetry. I was all set to go and then...... THE WORLD SEEMED TO GO CRAZY! It became clear to me that I was not being called to write out MY idea but that I needed to report on what was happening in the world and how it was making me feel.

the BLACK dog is a term used to describe depression and it a dark dog. As I started this work we are in a very dark, depressing time in the world and I had to reflect on that. So this is me, the Dark dog, barking back at the world! This is very much a live piece of work as we turn through this year. I also have my reflections in here, on my own thoughts, feelings and life. This is my heart open and my soul on show for anyone to see. It is me being brave, I hope you enjoy!

16. FOR JUST ONE NIGHT( YOUR JOURNEY WAS WITH ME)

 

In the dream I could not leave you to drown

On a train journey you spoke to me

You couldn't go home

couldn't go back

 

I did not know who you were running from

Who you were running too

I know I will never meet you again

I could not let you drown

 

I'm just happy you survived

I opened my eyes and felt the presence of tears

I left you on your journey

I couldn't let you drown 

 

Now you slip to the place where yesterdays dreams go

I wont ever see you again

I wish you all the happiness in the dream -scape

May you find peace as you pull into your station

whatever your destination
