Poem: " Fool's Game"

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Summary of Poem

Fool's game is a poem about a man who believes he can get away with fooling a woman.

He plays like the devil but he is left alone with his guilt.

With misty eyes he reads her tear stained letter wishing his angel would come home.

"Fool's Game"

He plays like the devil
in a whirlwind,
thinking he can slip home
before the dust settles.

The sky clears
before his feet hit the ground,
leaving him alone
with his guilt to comfort him.

His eyes mist over
when he reads the tear stained letter
she left behind,
wishing his angel would come home.
