Poetic thought

Concerned, you ask if I’m OK,
‘I’m fine’ is the standard reply,
I smile and you slowly walk away,
My heart is heavy, though my eyes are dry.
Normally things don’t get the better of me,
I take it all in my stride,
But some days I’m hampered by misery,
Something from you I can’t hide.
Holding me close, you ask again,
Knowing I’m not OK,
Your comfort helps relieve the strain,
I’m usually fine, just not today.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
