The dog barks and

Treatens to

Drown out

All thought.


The gap between understanding and feeling

Of knowing and doing


And the chasm asserts itself as an impossible barrier to cross.


I think, therefore I am

But what I think cripples me

Leaves my mind and body twisted

Strangles hope, squashes energy, vanquishes resolve.


I can’t sleep for the barking

And exhaustion only improves my hearing of the same

I try to pitch a positive outlook

But all I can hear is ‘no’.


This dog has hamstrung me

Has turned me inward and shrunk me

But this dog will not win

Each morning I wake is a victory
