Support


When sadness rises
we call on others
for a little support,
but if no one is there
loneliness creeps upon us
and our cries
are only heard by despair.
Pain wells up from deep within
dulling our senses
into doing things
not normal in our lives,
snapping out at everyone
in a desperate bid
for someone to listen
to all our pleas.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
