Lover’s Game Limerick


You only think you won.

Our game of who needs who.

Winner’s he who’s not undone,

When first love flew.

And again, alone is one.

For the Purple Treehouse

  1. Sad but true. I think the key word in the poem is “need”. A friend asked me once if I’d rather be wanted or needed, and it was an immediate response from me, “Wanted.”
    Good write, Abby!

    1. Thank you for the complements on the poem. God’s authorship and creativity are the foundation of all things beautiful.
