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!




The cross was never yours to take

That is something for you to bare in mind

I let you take the sacred symbol from me

Thinking it can never be mine


Who are you to say that they can not call upon that sign

Just because of who they love

Don't say "Because they bible tells me so..."

You Have the wrong song in mind


Maybe one day the world will understand

He carries the lamp

To light the way for everyone

Hand in hand with who they love


For I have heard the angels whisper in my ear

Early in the morning through the gentle breeze

When my heart was crying

Don't you tell me they don't hear me!


How you twist those words

As an excuse to spit the venom in your heart

Your hatred surfaces

So you hide behind his words and say "It's ok!" When it is not!


So I am taking back the cross

IT is as much mine as yours

I do not want this to end in anger

So I "I love you my brothers and sisters"
