The Therapist

for Dr Vasilios Silivistris
Talk to me trustingly of your pain
And what occurred to make you so unhappy again;
Was it something that happened long ago,
Remembered as a reoccurring dream you know?
Like Coleridge’s albatross lying heavily on your shoulder
Smothering everything but dark thoughts, which grow ever bolder;
Destroying humour and clarity of thought,
Guilt, suspicion and pain, to the fore, have been brought.
Tell me, when you feel you are able;
Perhaps when your world feels a little more stable.
It may take many days or only a few;
Take your time;  I’ll always be here for you.
After your demons we vanquish and dark thoughts done
You will have a release of spirit, your life could be fun.
You will experience emotional freedom never known before,
Just happy memories you will now want to store.
I will travel with you on your voyage to the past,
However evil and ugly I will stay with you fast.
Just hold patiently, tightly, my steady hand,
For together we will face this terrible land.
