Don't moan alone


Deep down inside it should be known
it’s never good to moan alone.
We need someone to listen to
all the trauma we’ve been through.

With our instincts we can tell
if someone thinks to listen well.
They try to look us in the eye
and they never, ever sigh.

Everything they say and do
seems to support our point of view.
Their empathy is so precise
it makes us take all their advice.

As we listen to what they say
they help to keep our fears at bay.
They seem to stand right close to us
and give their most without a fuss.

They radiate an ambience
that indicates experience.
There’s few things better than someone
who’s done some things that you have done.

We feel we’ve found someone at last
who has been down in their own past.
It feels the deal if they’ve been there
for then we feel they really care.

Then within our conversation
we release all our frustration.
We get to let the venom out
when someone knows what it’s about.

There is so much that it provides
to have such people by our sides.
It helps when you would like a moan
to know that you are not alone.

Can anyone enlighten me about the unrequested blue highlighted words that are appearing in my text. At first it was the word 'close' in the fourth verse and now it's swapped to 'listen' in the first verse. They seem to be links to advertisements and I cannot get rid of them. Are we being hacked or is this a ruse by the administrators to raise additional finance?Best wishes Bill
Now it's changed again to 'hacked' in my comment

I think your verses explain pretty well much of our feelings. Dont stop writting pls
Hello B,red. Thank you for your comment and encouragement. It's been a bit hectic around our household in the last few weeks as my wife has just retired and there are now alterations to undertake.I hope to blog another verse in the next few days as and when time permits.Best wishes Bill
