Yesterday I was looking through an anthology of poems, trying to find one to read out at our reading group meet last night. I stumbled across this one which is so pertinent to me.

Things

There are worse things than having behaved foolishly in public
There are worse things than these miniature betrayals
committed or endured or suspected: there are worse things
than not being able to sleep for thinking about them
It is 5am. All the worse things come stalking in
and stand icily about the bed looking worse and worse and worse.
