I'm really sorry about you getting shut out of your house, and about your dog. This is a lovely (and sad) poem though. I really like it, and I can relate to the feeling, I think. It's very simple but it conjures up a lot of feelings. Good writing.
I love this. I preferred it when it had an impersonal personal touch (if that makes sense)...... (ie, before I read your artist comment and I had it related to my life only) but even still with your personal swing to it (quite a literal twist, too) it is great. I love it.
