Hell, fire and damnation

Three destinations visited

While the coupling lasted.

Fear and dread came alive

Once darkness fell.

Daylight was no better

Bringing dark clouds

The barking of black dog

And sound of breaking glass.

Relationships are fragile at the best of times

So why stay?

Is it the devil you know syndrome?

Fear of moving on, having to explain yourself

To a third party

All this and more add to the morose feeling

The atmosphere of dread.

Seeking a safe haven

The dog house, yes the dog house

Lock stock and double barrel

Put an end to this dislike.
