My black dog

My black dog

I'm an inside-out depressive
who should be worse at night
though, what's fairly impressive
is the way I put things right.

Waking, I'm contrary,
sometimes I feel so bad,
it's really rather scary,
I feel I'm going mad.

Then, as the day progresses,
I begin to feel okay,
reflect on my successes,
melancholy goes away.

So, when it's time for bed,
I'm feeling good, again,
knowing what lies ahead;
in the morning, start again.
