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!




Why do they come to my mind? I have no way to tell those stories

Not enough faith in my heart, to give them the oxygen they deserve

Some have sat for so many years, waiting for my input 

I don't understand why they chose me, i can not find their voices


I may even begin to write you out 

Then I will just walk away

I leave you abandoned in the place

where stories remain unborn


I only know I need to express these feelings

Emotions so deep inside

Even if nobody hears them

At least they are alive


So deeply I feel them and feel for them

Because they deserve so much more than I give

Maybe one day, one day

You will be complete
