A Day In The Life Of A Therapist

A shoulder to lend, an ear for your cries
A loving smile to sympathise
I hear your problems, you have many
Compared to you, I’ve hardly any
To get through the day would be a sensation
Without another twisted revelation
A very awful time you’ve had
It’s surely enough to drive you mad
I feel quite ill, it’s worked with me
Please don’t forget to pay my fee

    Hi, Paula: I liked this one, especially your ending line, so apropos. I find myself wondering about your experience with psychotherapy and would appreciate your insight regarding my poem on the site entitled 'Nurse Ratchet And Her Bag Of Nuts.'

    Thanks for letting us read your poem here.

    You are going to have to take me to court!
    I will not pay your fee!
    That's why I write poetry!
