blackdog walked over him


I know the sun is shining and the blossom in full bloom

But an air of deepest blackness permeates this room

The ‘black dog’, Churchill called it; I can understand just why

It’s by no means unfamiliar; a common passer-by

It’s not a welcome visitor, nor did it ask permission

To come and lodge a few days so I eye it with suspicion

It has visited before, here; this dark presence in my brain

Oh, how I bid it leave me and not return again.
