Good Writtance

What is it then, what good?
Never doing as it should
Tempest tossed from hell
Written close to me

Tears drain from the eye wells
Bitten close to hearts deep sea
Ink dries round the wound
Written close to me

Rejected again my friends
Planned out as a grand win
Cut this deep bitter sin
Written close to me

Good then to bed
Fateful bitter bled
Good I say, good
Good Writtance
Close to me

    The title drew me in and I had to read this sad litany of self blame that was taken to bed. Hope a solution was found there! Love, Lizzie

    very interesting how this poems narrows down to its final stanza! I love the play on good riddance. Unique poem
