Good Night, Foe

Before I go to sleep let me say my prayer
If I have you wronged I don’t really care
You never ever bothered about how I feel
I gave you a wound that will never heal
You called yourself a friend. Laughed behind my back
Secure your heart away lest I paint it black
You lied to my face. You did it pretty well
Sleep while you can. ‘Morrow I give you hell

  1. hi Frank…read a few of your blog posts, so far the Good Night Foe is the one most appealing to the sense of where I am…thank you for being willing to share poems that bring some of the darkness to light so that it can be exposed and beaten to dust before the wind.

  2. “Another dies with a bitter spirit, never having tasted happiness.” Job 21:25

    Let the one who has done the wrong live (and die) in his bitterness. For you, wax poetic in living a life of happiness, unencumbered by wrath. Peace Frank.

  3. Thanks, Frank for coming by my blog. You sure have a “gift” of the written word. “Karma” always does come back to haunt those who need it! Lol. I actually have 2 WP blogs. One is my recovery blog and the other where I offer book promotions and I co-write with others.

    Stop by both anytime as I think you found my Book Blog 🙂 CAT
