A Dog Is Wailing

A dog is wailing outside,

A great deal of emotional pain

Waiting to return indoors.

 

My heart is thumping inside,

Full of old memories and scars

Waiting to return outwards.

 

A dog is my heart,

Full of fear and anxiety,

Waiting to vanish away.

 

My heart is in the dog,

Running and barking

Waiting for the end with peace.

 

Peace be with the dog,

And with me.
