The number thirteen,
Coincidence or karma
Falling on Friday.
Inspiration for slashers
Needing to wear hockey masks.
Then wouldn’t you know
Valentine’s Day would follow.
Now that’s frightening!
What if I got the wrong gift?
She could kill me in my sleep.
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
such powerful and strong words!!
Thank you sir…just a bit of holiday humor. 🙂
Apparently we’re supposed to get 3 Friday the 13ths this year.
…but only one the day before Valentine’s Day. 🙂
The spiritual meaning of 13 is that it signifies going forward. The Israelites marched around Jericho 13 times and the walls tumbled. Solomon’s temple had 13 columns. There were 12 Apostles, and then Paul came along. Without him, the New Testament of the Bible would be very small.
I understand completely and am familiar with its religious meanings. I wrote this purely as humor, if it offended then that certainly wasn’t my intention. Either way thank you for the information.
No offense taken and none intended. I’m sorry if I wasn’t clear. I did recognize the humor and appreciated it. Forgive me for having some serious things happening personally that tends to cause me to sound too serious when it’s not necessary. 🙂
No apology necessary, we all have things in our everyday lives that affect us. I just appreciate you taking the time to read my poems. Be well my friend. 🙂
Ha! Love the twist of humor you included in this poem. 😀
So – did you get her the right gift? LOL
Actually, we really don’t exchange with each other on holidays, Christmas and Valentine’s Day included. That may seem strange, but that is just what we have always done since having children. So in answer to the question, I guess I did. 🙂
Whatever works – I say! 🙂
I agree. 🙂
