For Better or For Worse: Sadness


Sadness is deep inside
Sadness is smooth but sharp and jagged
It hides, all the time, eating away at you
Sadness is huge but can be forced into small spaces
Sadness is heavy and dark
Sadness is the lonely howl of a dog.

— Lucy Ross-Blevis, 2010.

    I love poetry, and like this one, and the picture. Poetry is like art, an expression, this really catches sadness for me, I think it is very good. I think many people feel that way at times in their lives. I am looking forward to your little family getting through tough times to a new Spring, as your Dad expressed so well. Thanks for the poem.

  • Very nice.
