There Will Be No Rest

Updated on February 5, 2015

Lonely In Her Sleep

 

Lonely and old,

everyone knew she’d fall prey,

the nights were cold,

which kept the flies away,

no one heard her cry,

because there was no one around,

they found her weightless and dry,

she had been dead for days,

her spirit prays,

and her ghost would weep,

sadness filled her room,

as she died, lonely in her sleep.

There Will Be No Rest

 

It was a disgrace,

the devil became the only consolation,

to look upon his face,

brought torment and frustration,

being in that painful place,

and from there,

you can see the stars more clear,

the darkness had come down,

and with it came the fear,

leading your spirit through caverns and streams,

as you hear ghosts talking about losing

all expectations and dreams,

there was no visible end,

as the darkness came closer and closer,

the horror would twist and bend,

the terror ran deep,

and there could be no rest,

and there would be no peaceful sleep,

as Hell becomes your final test.

      Wow Frank, this s*** is spooky! Gave me chills. The last thing I want to look forward is a one way ticket to hell. You are a master poet my friend. It is always a pleasure to read your work Frank.
