I have just read your poem and wanted to let you know that you have managed to describe exactly how I am feeling today. I have had a really hard couple of years, losing my partner, providing emotional support to my three children, and now I am falling apart.
I have recently been in touch with a very old friend who has brought a lot of joy into my life, but just as we are getting along so well the black dog came calling and has practically destroyed it all.
I am trying to explain to him how I feel and why but it is so difficult to make someone understand when all they see is that you have a lovely house, a lovely family, financial security and you should be happy.
Anyway, thanks for sharing your poem. It has helped me to put into words what I am feeling.
