Sharing Poetry Is About Being Close

 Welcome! Take a seat, and please do slouch. 
 In fact, lay down on this psychiatric couch. 

 Tell me, exactly what ails you today? 
 You say your head hurts. Explain, in what way? 

 Is this problem new or ongoing for years? 
 What are some of your biggest fears? 

 Tell me all about your childhood. 
 Was it traumatic or mostly good? 

 Is your family close or full of strife? 
 Which activities are part of your life? 

 How do you feel about the opposite sex? 
 Are you dwelling on past regrets? 

 Have you been having recurrent dreams? 
 What are some of the common themes? 

 When conflict arises, how do you deal? 
 Tell me, how does that make you feel? 

 Less discuss some coping techniques. 
 How about we meet again in two weeks? 

 Here, take this prescription, and water with each dose. 
 Sharing poetry is about being close.

    I think that writing and reading poetry can be a form of therapy in itself. Great rhyming in this poem. Well done, Juliet! Congrats on your win in my contest!

    Dear Juliet - I so enjoyed reading this take on the shrink. Poetry releases us doesn't it? It's not a good idea to use the "reply" function as few people go back to see. Best way is to comment at the end of another's poem or send them a soup e-mail. Thank you too for your comments - makes my heart sing. love, Kathy
