The Black Dog

When I heard
the black dog
barking outside

I knew I had
nowhere left
to hide

When I heard
the black dog
at my door

I knew I didn’t
have the strength
to fight anymore

Now I hear
the black dog
on my shoulder

All I feel
is relief
that it’s over

    1. Hello Sir Charles!

      This one is based on the (somewhat) widely known phrase ‘a black dog on my shoulder’ – the black dog signifying depression.

      There is a good video on YouTube (link below) made by someone with way more talent than me – apologies if you have come across it before…
